Dragon Ball Z Gohan VS Team Bojack: Father's Legacy

First of all, Happy new year, and hope everything is better in 2016!!

Today I would talk about one of the most memorable moment in Dragon Ball Z, which is the scene of Gohan VS Team Bojack.

When you think of Dragon Ball Z, most of the time you would think of Super Saiyan, Kamehameha, bad ass fighting scenes, etc. This particular scene of course there are still Super Saiyan and Kamehameha, but it is much more than that.

In this part of the story, it is after defeating Cell, so Goku sacrificed already. One day Team Bojack came to the Earth, and trying to conquer the world. Gohan and other Z warriors stood up the game, but Team Bojack was too strong that even Gohan was in the verge of defeat. At the last critical moment, Goku's spirit rescued Gohan, and told Gohan that "Stop being a pampered baby, it is now YOUR turn to protect the Earth." Then Gohan realized his mission, unlock his hidden power and defeat Team Bojack.

This scene is a very meaningful and touching scene: it talks about the end of the journey of the Father, the Father has already passed all his power to the Son; while the Son, received the Father's power, is time to use this power to continue the journey. The music from this scene captures this message very well, and I arranged a version for melodica solo. This song has very beautiful legato line, and it builds up gradually from the beginning to the end. Technically it is not too hard, but to capture the soul of this song is not easy. I hope I can do this song justice on my melodica playing :)

Hope you guys like the song and see you next week!!
