Rhythm Encounter 70 – Black and White Magic


When it comes to instrumentation, it doesn’t get more fundamental than the piano. Not only is it often the first instrument musicians learn, but its 88-note range and ability to play both melody and accompaniment give it unmatched versatility. RPG soundtrack piano albums have been popular for decades, and in today’s episode our panel is going to dive deep into some of our favorite songs! From the soundtracks of indie favorites to the best arrangements Square Enix has to offer, join us for a piano lesson you’ll never forget!

With Jono Logan, Kaleb Curry, Patrick Gann, Pete Leavitt; Edited by Jono Logan
