Hi i was wondering if anyone knows if there are any scores for the orchestral part for lotus feet around anywhere? I want to do it for my music performance degree with a full orchestra but i dont have the time to transcribe it all myself.

Thanks for your help

I think your best bet would be to have a go & put pen to paper.

Work on your G & F cleff's. Or what could be better is hand it to a fellow classical person who has that area down cold.

Transcribing.
Arrangement of what your numbers will be.
Great conductor with conviction in leading his team.
Oc's practise time & at least one through it all for you.

Tip: Head to the Royal British Legion Band in your area or your country's equivalent.
Those guys have years & experience behind them & you could pull it off. They'd help you with anything + all cornors faced. They will also be a great source of help with song structure..keys..etc. Failing that ask a teacher.<Errr couldn't take a look at this could ya....

Leave the lead alone.

Work the backing. Write down roots & changes. Time code it for your own mind.

If you can play the lead your already have an idea of what's going on anyway.
Be the violins...etc do everything & I bet your get it faster than you think.
By the time you have found the score you could have had most of it down.
Then again if your really want the PROMS deal then find the above.

Good luck with the release & tension deal & don't break your whammy bar.
It will keep your pitch recognition sharp anyway so that's cool.

Is the tab book out for it yet? That would be a fast way also but then again your have to check that an all. Voicing, so on & so fourth.

If your hearts in it your do it.

How long do you have to dead line?

Got a mate that uses REASON 3.0? MOTU..MSI?
I've seen Steve play the whole song on YOUTUBE. That could be a great help to a person with numbers & config's..etc. The key would be not to watch Steve (as hard as that can be) & learn.
Study..study..study more..more study. errr
Me....I just played over it & over it & over it & over it & over it.
Take the cd & they will never know as long as it's nailed right infront of them. Either that or they will see how hard it is.ie last 30sec.phew.lol

cheers for your help mate. The deadline is at the end of june and i have to play for 40 mins and have another 7 modules to do so i cant just put all my time into working out the orchestral part even tho thats what i want to do. The conductor and orchestra i have arragnged to play it are world class so it shouldnt be a problem for them. I was just hoping someone had already worked it out so it would save me some time but i guess im just going to have to stop sleeping and get it done.

I'd like that too.... I have no idea where you'd get such a thing.

Does anyone have a midi file for Lotus Feet? Because i could get the score using that...

If you look on evilBay, there's a Japanese full score book of RI:R that apparently has the orchestral parts in it. I know some of the guys from the forum have bought it, maybe they could confirm this?
