Pokemon National Park's Violin part.

I've been thinking these past few days about the violin part while I've been practicing against it.

1. Why isn't this part played by some woodwind? Fast notes like this are probably much easier on a woodwind that doesn't have to worry about bowing.

2. Why does it have five flats? I know it can be composed better so that it isn't such a pain in the butt to finger.
3. The ending needs to be fixed. It doesn't fit.


  1. National Park is in the key of Db, sorry its gotta be authentic to the vidya. I'm pretty sure most wind ensembles play in flats while string ensembles and vocalists usually play in sharps, so i an imagine why it bugs you.

    I guess just keep working at it for the love of vidya, you'll only be a better musician for it you know? well, either that or maybe we pass the part off to, idk a saxophone instead. If its really that much of a pain

    As for the ending, i'm no good at writing a whole new part myself. i'd just radio fade out, even if its a little lame to do.

  2. Suck it up. You try fingering shit in Db on cello and then come talk to me.

    I don't think it would work with wind instruments at all. The original part was for a harpsichord FFS.

    I'll take a look at the ending. I usually end with perfect cadences because they're nice and end things succinctly.
