In this post, I’ll be going through some chord progressions commonly associated with a grand feeling, or “epicness,” with some examples of how they’ve been used in popular media.
This post is a response to a comment on my YouTube video.
I’ve had this song stuck in my head for days now, and you know what that means. Piano arrangement!
As always, I like to bring out the original piece itself whilst still making it an expression of myself. Also, I wanted to preserve the subtlety of the piece. Certain people, such as Greg Pak, have went at it like a swing or jazz piece and I think that misses the point.
At any rate, here it is.

This piece is strongly inspired by Anxious Heart from Final Fantasy VII. It’s not quite an arrangement but it retains some of the key parts from the original track.
As may be apparent, I’ve not had much time for my blog recently, mostly due to work. Hence, here’s some music to break up the silence.
