Transcription of Joe Hisaishi's "Sheeta no Ketsui"

Suraj N. Kurapati

Here is my interpretation (based on my memory of Joe Hisaishi’s 2008 live concert of Ghibli film soundtracks in the Budokan) of Joe Hisaishi’s song Sheeta no Ketsui, which means “Sheeta’s decision”, from Studio Ghibli’s animated film Laputa: Castle in the Sky.

I found the left-hand (bass clef) difficult to play because my hand is just barely large enough to satisfy the enormous key span in some chord progressions. Alas, if only I had three hands to play the Piano with! :-)
