Rebecca Sugar (Wiki / Tumblr) was well-known for the songs she wrote whereas engaged on Journey Time. It wasn’t very stunning she made music an integral a part of her personal collection, Steven Universe. On prime of making extra songs within the type of her Journey Time work, she had the voice actors sing throughout their auditions, constructed a workforce that would write their very own songs (yay to Jeff Liu, Hellen Jo, Ben Levin, Paul Villeco, and others), employed a number of voice actors with an expert musical background, and selected Aivi and Surasshu (beforehand identified greatest for his or her distinct chiptune/piano collaborations) as composers. I already made a music website for her work on Journey Time, there was no manner I wasn’t going to do the identical for the way more musical Steven Universe.
For every vocal tune, I’ve included lyrics, audio, and related hyperlinks. I’ve additionally included chords (with diagrams for a GCEA tuned Ukulele) the place doable. This website was initially a clone of the Journey Time Ukulele website I created, however a chord website would not match as properly as a result of many Steven Universe songs weren’t written for the ukulele. Even for the ukulele primarily based songs, the official chords aren’t at all times posted, so some chord listings are lacking or pure guesses (or chordify).
If you wish to study to play the ukulele, Steven Universe songs are an ideal, enjoyable place to start out. Even a non-serious, full newbie can strum out the songs. Simply get a ukulele (low-cost ones are lower than $30), tune it to GCEA (I exploit the iOS Tunefor Ukulele app), after which comply with the photographs on this website. You can even watch a couple of newbie’s classes on youtube, however it’s best to be capable of bounce into the Steven Universe songs straight away. A “Down Down Up Up Down Up” strum (and even only a “Down” strum) is sweet sufficient for many of those songs. When you’ve got bother with any chords, simply discover a neater chord that sounds shut sufficient (for instance, play an F as an alternative of a Fmaj7.) If the tune is tough to sing to, simply transpose it up or down (for instance, I normally take two steps up on Be Wherever You Are.) Have enjoyable with it- This website goes into way more element and particulars an ideal strum to make use of.
Although this website focuses totally on the vocal songs, I actually wish to spotlight Steven Universe’s composers: Aivi and Surasshu. I adopted them individually earlier than they began collarborating, by way of their Mabe Village collaboration and Black Field, after which to their work in Steven Universe. Their participation alone acquired me by way of Steven Universe’s (IMHO) sluggish begin. Undoubtedly try all their work.
Library-wise, this website makes use of JQuery, Bootstrap 2, and lunr.js. I’ve actually solely examined this web page in Chrome. Be at liberty to play with code, all of the tune information is within the lyric-data.js file. Sorry the code is so unhealthy, however I actually threw this collectively over a weekend virtually ten years in the past and I did not wish to spend an excessive amount of time on it. Be at liberty to attempt to repair it.
Now for some basic linkage:
