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

 

*Music Spoilers*

 

 

Hmm the music of first trailer probably sounds better ^^ I'd rather like that as title song then the one you posted.

That one is fake. I can't post the real one because of no spoilers/leaks, but that's fake.

 

OT: That video is beyond amazing!

Excellent work there, I think the OP substituted some either because they are not known officially what the theme song is (GTA V) or that it doesn't have anything that can really be replicated on piano (TBoGT).

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!

 

 

You have more talent in your hands than many of us do in our whole bodies.

Thanks so much for the support guys, seriously. I was sure everyone was going to hate it and I would be flamed into exile lol

 

Amazing, did you just listen and improvise these or is there actually sheet music for this flying around?  :lol:

 

The former - I just listened and improvised these as I went, I unfortunately can't read music and have never been trained on the piano :(

too bad thats not the TBoGT theme, the real theme is "I keep on walking". What you played is a trailer song: Pjanoo by Eric Prydz

Thanks so much for the support guys - I realize in retrospect that some of those "themes" aren't actually "themes", just songs from the game, but as someone mentioned previously, for those ones I was just trying to find a song from the game that I could piece together by ear, sorry for the false advertising!

Hahaha I know the GTAIII one actually took me some figuring out, it's a tricky rhythm and I definitely have no knowledge of jazzy-type playing. Dude, you KILLED it with your GTA 3 theme, that is incredible! You should send that to R* mouthoff!

That was really, really f*cking good man. Great job, I was going to do a metal version of the San Andreas theme a while back but I never got around to it. I might just have to try it again!

GTA 1 and 2's theme doesn't really tranfer well into piano, but the rest were great.

Thanks for all the awesome comments guys, seriously. I love these forums. Perhaps I'll do a piano mash-up of popular songs from the GTA V radio stations once the game comes out!
