Swordland (main Theme)- Sword Art Online Ost [piano]

Hey everyone, I have recovered from my left hand injury and can finally play the piano again, just in time for the start of the new summer anime season 2014!

This is also my 100th video upload and in order to celebrate this milestone, I've decided to upload a piano cover of one of the most epic Anime Soundtracks in recent history:

The Main Theme from Sword Art Online – Swordland!

In case you are wondering:
Yes, I have just rewatched SAO a few weeks ago, because I gave it another chance. I dropped this series back then at episode 12 because of… uh… various reasons.
Surprisingly, after finishing SAO, it wasn't as bad as everyone made it to be and to a certain extent, I really enjoyed this series.

However, it is indisputable, that the music in SAO is excellent: both openings (Crossing field and Innocence) are great, powerful songs and the soundtrack is nothing short than amazing, as expected by Kajiura Yuki.

Btw, I didn't recorded this piece in my conservatory as usual since I have returned to my parents home because I have semester break now.
I asked my former piano teacher if I can record at his place, because he owns a Boesendorfer grand piano. He even has his own recording equipment and microphones (though his microphones are not as good as mine…)

A small warning: The transcription is SUPER exhausting for the left hand because of the merciless arpeggios all over the place. Therefore, don't practise this piece too much at once!

Well then, since Sword Art Online Season 2 is airing this season, I'll definitely do a piano cover of either the Opening or the ending song.

Last but not least, I will make a very important announcement in a few days, so stay tuned!

      I like Crossing Field, too… But after hearing Catch the Moment, I like that one better.
      Between Yume Kagi (1st ED) and Overfly (2nd ED) which one do you like better?

    • TrollerPenguin

      +TrollerPenguin Well, that’s fine.. There are vids/audio of it online; I haven’t watched the movie, either. Looked for it because I loved the song in the 4th(?) trailer. And it’s *_good_*
