Playing the Tetris song on the piano

I recently got a keyboard! Yey! It’s a Yamaha Piaggero V-60, nothing too fancy, but still packing quite a punch for a portable keyboard!

After 5 years without having a piano with me (since I was living elsewhere, my good old trusty Yamaha Clavinova is still at home) I can finally start playing the piano again! My technique is pretty much rusty, making mistakes at all moments, but I think that with practice I can still catch up and improve from what I could do earlier (which was not that impressive anyway).

So to celebrate I decided to record a short video of a videogame theme. One of the most recognizable ones: the Tetris theme! Also known as Type A for those of you who played the Gameboy version of the game, it is based on the Russian song “Korobeiniki”.

The audio has awful quality, and my playing it is not perfect, but I did play it by ear (no music sheet). Also this idea came moments after waking up, so I was totally unprepared for a proper recording… But anyway, the point is that I wanted to upload a video playing a videogame song on the piano, and here it is!

Super Mario World – Castle Theme arranged


Those who know me probably recall how much I go nuts over videogame soundtracks. Well, this is one song I had saved a long time ago to post it here, but I just kept forgetting and now I found it again Open-mouthed smile.

It’s an arranged version of the Super Nintendo videogame Super Mario World, the theme that plays inside the castle levels where the final boss for each world awaits (the Koopa children). It’s made to sound like a live orchestra, so make sure you pump up your sound (avoid earphones for this) because the song sounds amazingly neat!
