PDF File Download: Jade Cocoon – Syrus Village NAF Tab
Original Composer: Kimitaka Matsumae
Technical notes: Requires use of one cross-fingering and one upper octave note. Play on an NAF in the key of D# if you wish to accompany the original track.
About: Jade Cocoon has some of the most amazing music I’ve had the good fortune to come across in the video game world and I still listen to it years on – I highly recommend a listen, even if you haven’t played the game! The theme for Syrus Village translates nicely to NAF and sounds great on it too; it’s the sort of instrument that could fit right into the game’s soundtrack.
On Playing: I wouldn’t say it’s a fast track so much as it flows without a lot of breaks, particularly in it’s latter half. The cross-fingering is a commonly used note, however getting used to hitting the high note and dropping down again to lower notes without any squeaking and squawking will take some practice and breath control.
