I have a bit of a weird hobby: transcribing sheet music for games completely by ear. I decided to do some of it for the Skullgirls soundtrack, and I'll be updating this post with a couple of them.

Keep in mind that since all of these were by ear they may not be perfect transcriptions, and as such may be missing some notes. If you feel something's off, let me know! I'll fix it.

The Lives We Left Behind (Maplecrest Theme)

Paved with Good Intentions (Lab 8 Theme)

Have you considered transcribing them with Noteflight?
 
Eh, I've tried it. Doesn't really do it for me. I'm too used to Sibelius.
 
I felt The Lives We Left Behind more in 4/4 time. I guess it could go either way. I never thought of 6/8. I've been trying to work on The Lives We Regained or what's it called with the piano and bass.

The Lives We Tried To Reclaim is the name of the second piece.

If it helps at all, I made Noteflight sheet music for it (it is at the end of The Lives We Left Behind, measure 125), which you can use as a reference point.

This is the notation that was used in Lumen Fortuna's amazing 8-bit The Lives We Left Behind and Reclaimed.

Any chance you'll do the same for 'Paved with Good Intentions' by putting them on Noteflight? I tried clicking on the link in the opening post, but nothing happened when I did.

I've been wanting a music sheet for that theme for a while along with The Lives We Left Behind. Also some music sheets for the main theme and 'In Just a Moments Time' would be neat if anyone has them!
 
I think something's just wrong with the site I used to upload. My fault. I'll try to find a better host and upload it from there, then update the post.

Also, for the record, the song I'm currently working is the Streets of New Meridian theme, Moonlit Melee.

I understand, and it's not your fault. Could be the website being dumb; you didn't know. Looking forward to seeing the complete music sheet! Just curious: do you play any instruments, or just make the music sheets yourself?
 
Actually I play violin, and I have a bit of background in piano. Not enough to actually play well, but enough to have a solid idea of the bass clef.

I found sheet music for The Legend of the Skullheart (the main theme) awhile back:

(Sheet Music) http://www.ninsheetm.us/sheets/Other/Skullgirls/TheLegendoftheSkullHeart.pdf

(Midi) http://www.ninsheetm.us/sheets/Other/Skullgirls/TheLivesWeLeftBehind.mid

I was working on In a Moment's Time and Paved With Good Intentions at one point, but neither of them were coming out well, so they're WIP until I have the time to get back to them, which wouldn't be for awhile (if at all).
I'd love to see what you have so far on those two.

Great stuff!
Thanks :D

My friend, Olimar12345 (Who arranged the aforementioned Legend of the Skull Heart), is working on that tune.

They were both kind of a mess by the time I stopped working on them. There's reeeeeally not much to show. :P

He's working on Moonlit Melee?! Dang it, he already beat me to making piano sheet music for The Lives We Left Behind, I can't let him beat me to it again! :'(

I say arrange it anyhow. It'll improve your ability.
 
I'm so glad I found this thread, I was going to try and transcribe The Lives We Tried To Regain, but it looks like someone has beat me to that project. I think I'm going to give Forgotten Moments a shot instead.
 
damn.other people do this too?

There are three pieces of sheet music on ninsheetmusic: The Lives We Left Behind, the main theme (both by Olimar12345), and now Fugue in Three Goddesses by FireArrow.

Beyond those, I do not know of any sheet music sources outside of those already posted.
 
Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan, it's been a while since I last did one of these.

Where Money Flows Like Water (River King Casino)

I took a few more creative liberties on this one than I usually do (though the midi file did even more than I did): I arranged most of the keyboard parts for woodwind/brass instruments. Why? Well, the college that I'm going to actually has this Gaming Symphony Orchestra thing where they take music from a bunch of different games and arranges and plays them. It's really, really popular. I know the person in charge, so I'm hoping I can present this particular arrangement get this music performed live as well as expose Skullgirls to a new kind of audience. That would be sick.

Is this Doomgirls???
 
You should really be focusing on the pdf. Midis can be dumb sometimes.
 
(Um... is anyone still working on these?)

I've arranged Eliza's theme for piano:
An Oasis in Time (Bath of Tefnut/Bath of Sekhmet) [PDF] [MP3]

I've started work on In a Moment's Time (any help would be appreciated!) and The Dreams We Left Behind (Nightmare Crest) as well.
(I use MuseScore btw)
 
does anybody have a sheet for piano of ''in just moments time''?

Sorry to disturb, but have you finished the In a Moment's Time arrangement yet? I'm dying to try it on my piano~
 
Has Anyone Been able to transcribe Lives we used to reclaim yet? I'd love to be able to play that on my piano c:
 
i'm just curious if LZ actually has the real sheet music somewhere. So that we can all just get and play it.

debating on poking about that... not Mike that's for sure. Maybe Midi...

Hi does ANYONE have the Oaisis in Time sheet music for piano? the link isn't working and i DESPERATELY need it.
 
I've just done the intro to Unfinished Business (Under the Bridge track) for the Tenor Saxophone (even tho I think it is a baritone sax in the track). I've transcribed it for the piano as well, just cuz. I might do the rest of the song some other time. I just wanted to have some sheets to look at so I can learn it on the sax.
