Dark Manor – Kirby’s Epic Yarn
This is “Dark Manor” from Nintendo’s action game “Kirby’s Epic Yarn”.
It is composed by Tomoya Tomita.
It’s a song that plays in the stage where you go through the darkness with the light of a lamp. It’s kind of a weird atmosphere.
The beginning part is Bm, the middle part is F#-Bm, and the end part is Bm-Em-F#-Bm…. The movement of the notes is getting bigger and bigger.
The dark sound of Fdim (=C#b9) in bar 19 is especially nice.
In bar 25, Bm-B7-Em, the flow of rising semitones (d-d#-e) is smooth.
Guitar Playing Points:
The rhythm changes at the beginning, middle, and end of the song, so it’s good to be aware of the contrast.
Considering above, in the beginning part I played staccato and restrained , and in the middle part I tried to make it smooth.
