Some parts I intentionally adjusted the octaves of since I thought it sounded better or was easier to play

This is looking very good! Just a few tiny things I noticed:

-The bass + drums part starting in m5 is on the difficult side of things, but should be doable: if you want though, you could leave out the E on beat 4.25 so it's a little bit easier to play that ending part.
-m21: You could add grace notes A# and B before the R.H. C here too

I'll just leave it, so that way the performer can decide whether or not to leave it out.

I removed these (and the last few notes in m20) so that it would be easier to jump from m20 to 21, but if you think it wouldn't be too demanding I can add them. I left it for now though.

Thanks for checking!

I think it's fine, you already left some space for the player to jump up in m20, getting the grace notes isn't that much harder compared to just getting to the C ^^

Sounds good then, I've added those notes in

My only comment is from listening to m18, it sounds tonally more like E minor. So I'm hearing En instead of Eb, and Fn instead of Fn. I think then do Gn and An instead of Ab and Cn? May want to play around with this but tonally it sounds off currently.

Yep, I hear that too. Basically I just shifted m18 down by 1 semitone.

Edit: And before I forget, do we want to update all the TTYD track titles to match the Sound Test in the Switch version? So in this case it would be "Battle - Macho Grubba". The current titles aren't sourced from any official material as far as I know, and most tracks from the GC version have official titles now with a few exceptions like "All Aboard to Rogueport" which isn't in the remake.
