Kaereru Basho - Hidari-me Tantei EYE (J-drama)

The last Hidari-me Tantei EYE request. WHOA!!

From 3 request scores, Kaereru Basho had the worst impact to me hehehehe.. I mean, the score is so beautiful, so clear, simple.. it has mixed emotion between sad, sweet, and hope. If I make a farewell party, and there will be like a video clip of photos, definitely I will take this one. (uh, yes... I love to make people cry hahahahah)

Anyway, Kaereru Basho in my own translation means A Place to Return or A Home to Return.

Sheet music and some music theory, for you... (tutorial time!)
I purposely treat this score differently. There are reasons. One, because I give more focus on how the score is divided. If you ever study music, then you will understand that each part is divided into 'parts'.. and each sentence is divided into "question sentence" and "answer sentence" (this might not a correct term, as I only read it on Indonesian music book theory for university student and translate here literary). A part is usually marked with "A", "B", just like what I usually do on my sheet musics. All that alphabets, I took it in box. So if an part A is divided into smaller component: question and answer sentences, I usually put it into Aa, and Ab.

In many case both classic and modern music, there is time that a repeat of a "part" does not taken the whole sentences (question and answer), but only start from answer sentence. In Kaereru Basho, part C is repeated later, but only the "answer sentence" or I call it as Cb.

So, how do you distinguish a question and answer sentence? One sign that you can use is that most of question sentences are ended with "hanging" notes or chords and need to be finished. The answer, in contrary, is answering or finishing the hanging notes/chords. Still confuse? Hm, this is the illustration:
if you see a lyric, look at the first 4 lines. The first line is question sentence, the second is answering, the third is question, and fourth is answering sentence. Get it now?

Now, the second reason why I treated this score differently is because this music is the best played as a group. Because only in that way, you can see how rich is the tune here. I purposely put guidance where the accompaniments are included. Because, for example, strings are taking role here, but most of time it is acting only as accompaniment; and only at part AA' it plays as major sound.

The third reason, by looking at second reason, I hope from now, you will treat your sheet music in this way. Write at each part what sounds did you hear. This is an ear training and I believe it will increase your ability to understand music better.

Anyway, this is the only sheet music that I give lots of help/signs for you, including expression signs. :)

Hm,... not much. There are non-basic chords, but I give hints for you. Should there no more difficulty. Any level of players can try, even if you are a beginner. Study the sheet while hearing the music.

Notes for pianist, in this score, most parts, piano would play in sweet manner or soft. But there are places that I feel the pianist at the recording would give tensions like bar 24th and bar 44th - 45th .

So, happy playing and E N J O Y!
