I adore the Piano Collections (most of em, anyway) and the sheet music that goes along with em, they're fun to play :) . Anyone else feel the same?

Also, does anyone know where "Eternal Harvest" (Track 1) of the FF9 Piano collections comes from in the game? I can identify the other songs but this one has eluded me; the closest I have come is the Forest theme..but it doesn't quite fit.

I love the piano collections too - but they're SOooo expensive 0.o

Most of the time I play them by ear and try to figure out how things are supposed to sound :D

I found scans of the official ones online a long time ago, I don't think the site is still there ^^; but you could try nobuouematsu.com for some nice original arrangements.

The nice thing about piano collections is even though they have some really oddly arranged pieces, there are a few cases where they sound better on the piano than the normal sheet music does
(which ends up sounding off-kilter sometimes since the synth instruments don't go well with piano...it's kind of hard to explain so if I am not making sense, my apologies ^^)

Got both 8 and 9, though most of the better piano tracks are on 9.

I got my friend to buy me the piano books for 8, 9, and 10... Happy!

Kurenai- "Eternal Harvest" is from the time when Freya and the others are in Cleyra (spelling? I haven't played that game in such a long time...) and Freya is participating in the dance to summon more power to protect Cleyra from being destroyed.

I own the FF IV, V, VI, VIII, IX, and X Piano Collections. Wait, something's missing . . . that's right, a piano collection for FF VII! HOW COME ONE WAS NEVER MADE FOR VII?!?!?!? That's one thing that eludes me . . .

I've always wondered where Eternal Harvest was in the game, too. Thanks, jen_kat.

I just recently played Ami (from FF VIII) at a piano recital. I wasn't as good as I wish I could have been, but it's still darn fun to play!
