to he who never seems to age  
Happy birthday, Kenken! :)

Honestly, Ken doesn't look like he's thirty-one. Right?

For a mostly Tonisen-biased girl, Ken has become pretty much my second-favourite in V6. And for someone who prizes singing in her idols, Ken might be an interesting choice. Honestly, at first I wasn't a -huge- fan of Ken, but it was stuff like his cheekiness and his contemplativeness that got me. He's got such an interesting gap in what he writes and what he says that's quite unique to him.

My interest in Ken definitely shot up after watching his SCP interview. The nature of SCP is kind of serious, but he really gave a lot of thought into what he said. When he said he was 'the one who loves V6 the most', and then talked about the Honey Beat concept (which I loved!), I was a little surprised but more in admiration. And reading his jweb entries, they're not only funny but also poetic - and I get the vibe that it's so definitively him. I wish I could write like he does.

Lastly, he knows exactly when to be adorable and when to be attractive. And that, my friends, is a skill to be admired. XD

Here's to loving V6 and staying youthful!

happy birthday to the smiliest of smilies!  
I never make more than one mouth on a smiley. Today, I will make an exception to this rule.


Honestly, no smiley face can really represent how awesome his grin is. When I first got into V6 and watched their variety shows, I was immediately drawn to how much he smiled. He had a great laugh and he was always being silly, which made me laugh. Soon enough, he became the member I would watch.

Then as I learned more about them, I discovered that he was the owner of that amazing voice I was hearing. Because I got into V6 for their music first, I was in awe at how well he sang, not only in his solo lines but how he meshed with the rest of the group, and how his voice was powerful and full of emotion.

Then I learned he played guitar. And being the sucker for musicians I am, it only confirmed that he was my favourite V6 member.

And so I deemed him awesome. XD

He's wonderfully honest and he is very capable. Not only is he a great singer and performer (a backflip HB, haha), he's also a great talker and that's been rewarded with his morning show. I'm glad that he's getting the recognition that he deserves and I hope he's managing his schedule very well. His jweb is also incredibly cute in his usage of emoticons and his arbitrary subject choice, and it connects to so many.

If I were to analyze the V6 family, we'd have Sakamoto-papa, Nagano-mama, the Kamisen kids and Inocchi would be the loyal and cuddly family dog who brings the family together (speaking of dog, I think whoever decided to make that commercial with him as a postman and that dog is awesome). And not only is he part of this wonderful family, he has one of his own! I'm proud of him for being part of the small married crowd of Johnny's, haha. (I don't know why I should be proud of this, is that sad?)

Inocchi, thank you for being awesome, and I hope you will continue being awesome. :)

Solo Piano Arrangement: LIGHT IN YOUR HEART - V6  
After practically four months, I'm finally posting sheet music. Ah, my lost love.

Warning: LIGHT IN YOUR HEART is not exactly a piano-friendly song. I attempted this because I like playing things on piano and I figured out a good chunk of it, so I thought "Why not?" It's not exactly the most stunning thing you'll hear, but I think most of it works out. The good thing is that the chords weren't overly funky. :D

As a result, the left hand is pretty simple. Though together, both hands have some weird rhythms, but don't worry, you can change the left hand to suit your needs. What I put is just an idea.

The download is a .rar file with a PDF and an MP3 of Finale playback. I suggest the sustain pedal. This version hasn't been tested yet - well, not all of it - so there may be some weird spots. Particularly the guitar solo. I actually slowed that section down to try and lift the guitar solo, but it didn't really work because it was really hard to listen to, so part of it's made up.

My next V6 sheet should be much more piano-friendly... except I have to figure out what to do with that guitar solo too. XD

Solo Piano Arrangement: Voyager - V6  
[ profile] kaychung I DID IT I FINALLY DID IT I FINISHED IT. :D (Tell me if you want another arrangement for guitar.)

I started this roughly two weeks ago because I got completely and utterly obsessed with Voyager. And then I went and listened to other V6 songs and watched some of their shows and got the Voyager album and whatnot and it took a while for me to sit down and finally finish it instead of all the stuff I promised my friends I'd do. And here are the fruits of my labour!

That sounded much more impressive than it really is...

It might sound awkward since there are a lot of synthesized sounds and more extra parts in Voyager than I could replicate in a somewhat easy-to-play manner (since I did most of it actually at the piano rather than my usual mess-around-on-Finale method), but it's not too bad. ^^"

The sustain pedal is your friend. :D

The .rar file contains a PDF of the sheet music and an MP3 of Finale playing the music back to me. I'm lazy so I don't have any dynamics marked in, but I trust you all know how the song goes. :D There might also be discrepancies between the recording and the PDF because I made changes after recording it and got too lazy to do it again, so sorry for that.

Comments are nice but not necessary, though I would appreciate any feedback people have after playing the piece to sort out kinks and stuff. Other than that, I'm just looking to jump into this fandom a little more (though with school approaching it's probably not the best idea). So yeah. Maybe I'll do another song soon, though I don't think I'll be able to get another one out...
