Hey folks!

 

I just wanted to post this here in case any of you guys/gals may enjoy it. It's pretty brutal anticipation waiting for September 17th so I decided to funnel my excitement through a piano.

 

I played (well, tried to play) part of every theme from every GTA game on the piano. Here's the result! I apologize in advance; I have no training on the piano and can't read sheet music at all, so this was all done by ear and it may all be garbage, but hopefully some of you may get a kick out of it.

 

The hardest parts to play were definitely:

1. The Ballad of Gay Tony - requires both the left and right hand to be moving furiously all over the place (that sounds naughty).

2. San Andreas - while not as fast as TBOGT, the timing is crazy for the different parts.

3. GTA IV - those rapid guitar-/mandolin-esque staccato notes are friggen hard on a piano!

I'm sure there's a better place for this thread.. A more general GTA topic?

I'm new to these forums, I saw other threads on this page comparing GTA games and I made this video specifically in anticipation of GTA V but I can delete it if it doesn't belong

Who would have thought a song called Pjanoo would be so hard to play on piano.

Don't apologize to me lol. It's a good thread, just not directly relevant to GTA V.

 

Seriously though, good sh*t. I can only play twinkle twinkle littler star on piano. :(

Nice work, Could hear a few wrong notes in there but good job none the less...

 

Also the theme you played for GTA V isnt actually its theme.  Just one of the songs that will be in the radio.

Very, very good, especially for someone with no knowledge of sheet music or formal learning on a piano! I noticed a few meters were off and few off notes but overall a fantastic performance! :)

Just like the fact Pjanoo isn't the 'theme' to TBoGT.. it's just a radio song. THIS is the theme to Gay Tony, but still great job.

 

GTAIII still gives me chills, IV is also really really great.

I forgot to point out that I'm pretty sure this is GTA V's theme song:

Pretty good think III and IV's theme were done the best. Hate to break it to you though but that's not the Ballad of gay Tony theme, people always seem to get that part wrong for some reason.

 

@Southern_Comfort: that's not V's theme, this is (well more like the first part of it)
