My Jpop/Anisong Guitar Chords

picture1

Hi everyone! This topic will solely focuses on my own guitar arrangements for my favorite Jpop and Anisong artists. And as you see, I mostly transcribe Yuki Kajiura’s works, particularly Kalafina. 😊

I tried posting the chords here, but unfortunately, WordPress keeps on formatting the text even if you edit the code, resulting to wrong timing in each post.

I’m just an amateur musician so please take these transcripts with a little grain of salt. And again, I only transcribe guitar CHORDS, so please don’t ask for finger tabs, musical scores, midi files and such, cause I don’t have enough time to work for it it lol. I also add chords from fellow musicians and I always credit them accordingly, so don’t worry. Lastly, there were unnoticeable mistakes sometimes so please bear with me and always feel free to correct me! 😉

Btw, some links were submitted to Ultimate-guitar site for better variations and transpose functions, and to my tumblr as well, so here ya go:

Kalafina guitar/piano chords:

Anime/TV/Movie OST (mostly by Yuki Kajiura):

See-Saw

I will update the links on this post whenever I submitted a new song, so don’t worry 🙂
Please enjoy these for awhile and stay tuned!

And also, this new label picked up the anisong industry’s best artists, with 14 groups/solo performers listed below (order arranged according to the announcement):

1. Kalafina
2. ClariS
3. LiSA
4. EGOIST
5. Sako Tomohisa
6. Kana Hanazawa
7. Haruna Luna
8. ELISA
9. GARNiDELiA
10. SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]
11. Ayano Mashiro
12. TrySail
13. PENGUIN RESEARCH
14. TSUKICRO

The official site of “SACRA MUSIC” also stated the following:
“Please look forward to overseas events, live holdings, song releases on a global scale.”

Oh man, I’m definitely looking forward to this! Good thing they included some seiyuus such as Sako Tomohisa and Kana Hanazawa. And Kalafina and ClariS on the top of this list makes me happy lol XD. I just wonder why Aimer, fripSide and others didn’t involved with this. I just hope they’ll perform together here in PH, or else release something new together. Ahhhh! I can’t wait to see how this will turn out! 🙂

Kalafina 5th album「far on the water」Review

Far on the water promo pic

Well, its been a long time since by last post on this blog due to busy school schedule hehe. But now that I managed to listen to Kalafina’s 5th album ‘far on the water’, here’s my review:

01. into the water

So this is the ‘overture’ of this album just like what their albums usually have. It has a feeling that best describes “Welcome to the world of Kalafina.” Great vocals from them as usual but not as enchanting as ‘al fine’ from Consolation album. Well, it’s a great intro, imo.

  1. monochrome

When I first heard this song, It was a little bit weird and I was amazed on how the electric guitar and accordion played together. I love accordion so much that’s why I immediately loved this track! That Hikaru verses, plus a solo Keiko line before Wakana’s chorus was pretty amazing just like a colorful song which describes best for the song. That instrumental was sooo great! Overall, this is one of my fave track from this album.
