Piano Guys arrangments!

3 months ago

In this discussion (idea came from AshBoy, kind of), we're gonna post any arrangment of the Piano Guys that we can write! If you're confused about this, please post your concerns.

Our goal is to cover an arrangment of any song that the Piano Guys have composed/arranged. If you have one, please post it!

I'm taking on "Game Day". I'm soon going to get the sheet music for it, so that'll help me!

That will probably be my focus after I finish the song I'm currently working on.

Im doing Michael Meets Mozart but it will take awhile since i only have one arm at the moment lol

We lost some song, due to copyright infringment.

Sadly, "Secrets" and "Waterfall" no longer exist. Does that mean I shuld still work on my "Game Day," if it'll be reported, and it'll be taken down anyway?

Waaaaiiiit, WHAAT? I had a copyright infringement??!!!!!!!!!! I can kind of understand All of Me - I had a section that was very similar to the original, but Waterfall was my own arrangment....... How is that an infringement?

I just e-mailed Joel H. Weinstein, the copyright and permissions guy for the PianoGuys, and asked him about the infringement. Hopefully he responds.....

Yes, because that was beautiful! By the way, AshBoy, if Joel H. W. reported something inaccurate (like it wasn't really an infringment), his account will be taken down for...I don't thing MuseScore says. At least a year.

Mr. Weinstein replied, and this was his response:
"Dear Mr. Rowe,
When you do an arrangement of a work belonging to someone else, it is best to get their permission as under copyright law, it is considered to be "derivative " of the original work and therefor owned by the author or publisher of the original work, not the arranger.

The problem will arise when the new work is copied or sold, as those rights belong to the author or publisher of the original work. In this case, downloading is considered copying. Got it?

All the best, Joel"
According to this response, it seems we will each need to get permission first from the PianoGuys to do arrangements of their work, or at least share them publicly. I just e-mailed him again, asking by what means we can accomplish this. I'll let you guys know what he says. :D

Oh, and I understand "giving credit" isn't enough to bypass copyright laws, for those of you who still feel irritated by Mr. Weinstein. If you do decide to contact him, please be polite about it.

I'm not sure. I think the easiest way to do it would just write it onto MuseScore by ear.

Yes, well...I will probably eventually delete this discussion. It's not really going anywhere.

That's not to say that you can't do arrangements--please do! I just doubt that we'll ever be able to cover all of them.

I did an arrangement for Love Story meets Viva La Vida and it got taken down for copy right infringement. How do I get it approved?

Has anyone made an arrangement of What Makes You Beautiful? The current link listed is broken (page not found).

I have Home, A Thousand Years and Fight Song but I added a violin to them all (I used them for piano trios as the cello part was too hard for my cellist!) If anyones interested in any in particular I can try and make arrangements (I'm making without you now) !
