Two more Dr. Horrible songs transcribed. Moses Lei has transcribed two more songs from Dr. Horrible.

The Horrible Theme and Penny's Song are now available on Moses' Dr. Horrible Sheet Music and Audio Files page.

Correction: that's actually Caring Hands, Penny's canvassing song in Act I before she runs into Billy at the Wonderflonium heist. Penny's Song, the ballad in Act II, has been up for a while before this. The music is shared between the two; just the words are different.

I have to admit thats pretty nifty... I have PowerTab and GuitarPro but the results wouldnt be quite the same. Also, I'm not that good, I'm still more of a practicing musician rather than an effective transcriber....
Hey, you didn't mention these! ;)
Yee, so cool! I have dabbled with figuring out "Freeze Ray," and now it's all done for me.
Huh! That's kinda amazing. I was wondering if something like that would ever come out of Whedon, really.

I also thought there were a lot more grace notes in there. Maybe because they're held a little long she didn't think they were? Also, the little triangles-- I'm assuming those are the same as staccato or an accent? I honestly don't remember seeing those before.

I will be bookmarking this site.
Welcome, Ebdim9th of the Unpronounceable Tribe!
While I love love love that people are sharing music, and working on projects for which they have passion, I always get a little nervous about the large grey ocean where musical piracy and fair collide. I sincerely hope that anyone who uses music from this site would purchase the officially published version, if it is ever released. Yes, this includes everyone who "is just going to play it at home." Sheet music is another avenue where composers and songwriters can often see some royalties for their work.

I'm blushing at being called a "she"-- what a compliment! (= I'm not sure which grace notes you mean. Which song, which bar? You can email me with specific questions, my information is at the bottom of the page.

As far as the triangle articulation, it is a staccatissimo, or wedge. It just means very very short and separated.

Or, welcome E flat diminished 9th of the chord tribe.
Is this a trivia question? Is the answer "-ven"?

ETClarify: Is that the chord when Buffy sings about being pulled out of Heeaaa-ven?

*laughs* I'm sorry. For some reason I glanced over the name and thought it was all one, not first and last. So Lei to me meant a female. My fault. ;)

And okay. Staccatissimo. That's not something I must've run into enough.

And while I've played musical instruments, I've never transcribed, so I'd probably be more interested in why they're not grace notes rather than presume to correct you and say that they are. Say... in the first song, My Freeze Ray, in measure, say, 9. Where the notes sort of tumble from one to the next (they do that a lot). You have it as the last note of a triplet, where I might've thought a grace note.

Anyway, it's not a problem, just a little curious.
Didn't Oz make reference to "E flat diminished 9th" while discussing music with Willow? Or am I being deja-vuey?

As a general rule, if a note has its own syllable, it gets a real (principal) note with a real time value. In vocal lines, grace notes generally only serve for inflection and would grace a principal note that's sung on the same syllable. What makes a grace note is if it only takes time away from another note and has very little time value of its own, which is not the case here. Does that clear it up?
That is very cool. Makes me sad I don't know the first thing about music. But I have friends who I can force to play this for me =)

It's a man's chord. You could lose a finger.
Piano-guitar-vocal score for Slipping is up. Still working on full score and audio files.
Pointy... jcs... and co., yep, that's exactly where I got the name from.. and the chord Buffy sings over is close, Joss mentions it in season 6 special features... but its not quite the same one.. a seventh i think, rather than a ninth...
