Floccesy Town – Pokémon Black2/White2
This is “Floccesy Town” from “Pokémon Black2/White2”, developed by Game Freak, released by The Pokémon Company.
This is composed by Go Ichinose.
Floccesy Town is a small town surrounded by trees and is home to Alder, the previous Pokémon League Champion in “Black/White”.
It has a small clock tower, and in the music the sound of bells evoking it is used .
(The arrangement omits it, as it was difficult to include them)
Although capo fret 4 is the original key, capo fret 2 is used for ease of fingering in bar 20th ceja.
(It doesn’t matter, if you are using a cutaway type)
- bar 2~5: Progression of base descending sequentially with inverted forms
- bar 6~8: smooth movement up by semitone (a > a# > b)
- bar 10~13: smooth movement down by semitone (a > g# > g > f#)
- bar 15: Aeolian modal interchange (not simply IV-V-I)
- Modulated over minor 3rd degree
- bar 18~21: “Ohdo progression”-like
- bar 21: Emphasis on minor key resonance by bIIo7
- bar 22~23: Gentle movement by ii-ii/V (not ii-V)
- bar 32: Secondary chords-like, but also a dominant chord in the beginning key
*Not sure about the chords in bars 12, 29
