I've noticed that while many people can easily lay down tutorials on the western 4 chord progression, not many sites really hone down on what makes east asian music particular in its sound. one critical aspect is their choice of chord progressions.
I was honestly hesitant to release something like this (still am) because I'm self taught, so most of the analysis I presented here really come from how I personally understood the relationship, so I really don't know how much of what I've presented here is elementary music theory/ straight up wrong, heh.
Nonetheless, I hope you look kindly on this, and I sincerely hope this could help out a beginner (or advanced!) musician out there who's interested in learning e.a. music.
of course, there are many other factors that contribute to e.a. music's characteristic sound, but I thought I'd focus on chord progressions for now.
I sincerely hope this does not come off as an oversimplification of their musical styles.
I've tried to rewrite this in musescore, but it's been a little difficult since I'm still new to it, so I thought I'd share my noteflight scores here for now until I become familiar enough with the interface.
p. 1 : IV iii vi ii V I (circle progression)
p. 2 : I vii° III vi v I7 (maj -> rel min -> maj)
Hi guys, I got Musescore recentely and I started arranging some Pokémon musics. That's the first. If you would, I'll post the score on the group. Hope you enjoy! :)

spare a second for my second piece (;
Hello, I'm new to this website, and I love anime so I made this flute score from Naruto https://musescore.com/user/29447602/scores/5195302
Please tell me if you like it
So hey guys,
I'm Carl, and I make Sax covers on Youtube. Well that's what I used to do I suppose. About 18 months ago I started learning how to play the trumpet, then cornet, then flugelhorn, then alto horn(Piccolo Eb Tuba or like a French Horn but in Eb), and Euphonium...then I decided you know what...I wanna start an orchestra with folks all over the world...so I did that...and that's where I am now. We debut our first songs next month. I figured, you know what, why not put some feelers out there and see if anyone has the skills and interest in taking up the arranger's seat from me, before we release our first tunes. I would say that I have already arranged or will arrange nearly half of this year's tunes, so it's not so much of a rush to find someone as it is to find the RIGHT someone. I'd like to find someone who's able to transcribe these original tunes and then help me split the parts among what we have, and also someone capable of making the tunes Unique to us and our/their sound or able to accept me being able to tweak the transcriptions after. At the bottom of this post I'll put some samples of arrangements I've done with bands and then lastly a quick sample of the first frame of our Debut arrangement, which is the trailer music used for Avengers: Infinity War. Our repertoire will consist of MOSTLY VGM, Anime Themes, and Film Scores. I would say at least 85% will be that. So yeah, if you're interested, or no someone who would be interested, please feel free to contact me. If somehow an overwhelming amount of people express interest, I will put together an audition for it. But depending on who all inquires I can have more than one person to help share the work. I also intend for this to become a paid position(I'd prefer to discuss those matters privately of course).
I'm hard at work trying to get us viola and flute soon. I got Harp today, so I earned a lil break haha. Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon.
Oh this is our instrumentation by the way:
Electric Guitar(6-8 string)
Electric Bass(4-6 string)
All the horns I mentioned that I play earlier
Orchestral Percussion(Marimba, Glock, Vibes, Timpani, et al)
Latin Percussion(Congas, Bongos, Timbales, et al)
Tuba(CC, F, Sousaphone)
Here's a sample of our debut release currently about 40% finished:
Now some offbeat arrangements I've done:
(Teen Titans Go)
(Game of Thrones. in 4/4 with 90's HipHop feel)
(Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney)
See you space cowboy!

thank you for everyone who told me the key signature in the other discussion. So could someone maybe try to make sheet music to the song in the link? https://youtu.be/lBcnlJclqxs . I really want to be able to play this song, and this version is the only version easy enough for me to play. please I would really appreciate it.
i wrote this piece after watching way to much anime and also as a way to step out of the box of what i was confertable writing hope everyone likes it.
I Arranged this so myself and two of my girlfriends younger siblings could play it thoughts?

Howdy! This is just a heads up for all of you FF nerds that I'm currently uploading the entire FFIV OST to Musescore. I'll need to make a few edits since I used an old version of the program + the actual game soundfonts for the scores, but rest assured, it will arrive very soon!
