Jade Cocoon – Legend of Arcana (Main Theme)

PDF File Download: Jade Cocoon – Legend of Arcana NAF Tab

Original Composer: Kimitaka Matsumae

Technical notes: Requires use of a single commonly used cross-fingering. Play on an NAF in the key of G if you wish to accompany the original track.

About: This one is just a short little melody, but not less a great piece of music for it’s length. It’s exactly the sort of music you want to hear at a game’s title screen – something strong and powerful that makes you feel like you’re about to embark on a truly epic adventure!
It’s also heard in a pretty, gentle version during the end credits to the game, and is reprised in the sequel Jade Cocoon 2 as the theme to Levant’s throne room in the tracks Legend and Reunion, the latter of which is particularly soft and beautiful.

On Playing:   You’ll want to play it strongly, but it does require you to hold some notes for quite a long duration, so be careful with your breath control. The cross fingering is a very commonly used note and should present little problem.
