Have some pride for what you do, man.



It looks fine but just a few things to consider.

First is tonal and metric stuff.

In measure 4, beat 3 and 4 in the bass line; the G continues onto beat 3, the it leaps down to the E on the & of 3, the continues upward chromatically to F, then F-sharp back up to the G in the next measure. Kinda like a micro version of the figure in the last measure.

The quarter notes in measure 1 and 3, beat 1 and 2, as well as measure 2, the quarter note on the & of 2, sounds like it should be staccato. The only note that should be held out for a full beat is the quarter note on beat 4 of measures 2 and 6.



Other than that, fix a couple of visual things here and there and you'll have yourself an arrangement.

I’ll get to the tonal stuff later, but...

Take a trip into this thread.

http://forum.ninsheetmusic.org/index.php?topic=481.0

Learn it, practice it, live it.

Also, there's a template file so it shouldn't be too hard to muster a good-looking sheet.

Tip of the day: if you change the 0 to 1 at the end of the dropbox link, you'll get a direct download link (instead to a link to the dropbox page)

Such as?

Title/copyright info are misaligned, tempo marking is wrong (it's a quarter note, not 2 8's). Anyways, as Brassman said, using the template file is way easier.

I’ll go do that, thanks.

Lol, I forgot about that. As far as I can tell, you can’t add the tempo in Nopepad.

Ok, I’ll do that.

[GB?]

G&WG1 was only released to the GB
G&WG2 was released to the GB, and a year later to the GBC
G&WG3 was a GBC exclusive

^^ All of these saw re-releases on the 3DS Virtual Console. Hope this helps.

Also, if you want to chat over Discord about your sheet, I can help you fix it up.

Ah. Ok, got it. I feel like I should know that. What would one list for G&WG2 then?

Great question. I'd label it as [GB], because the GBC cart was a re-release, so we list it as GB (i.e. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening)

Ok. Thanks.

Edit: I've modified the OP to remove the "?".

All fixed. I'm surprised with how little stuff I had to change.

Other than that, fix a couple of visual things here and there and you'll have yourself an arrangement.

At this point, I'm going to have to copy the entire song over note by note to the new sheet, which isn't too bad considering the length of this song. I'll be sure to start with the template next time.



Edit: I didn't actually have to copy it note by note due to magic. The new version is now in the OP.

Not necessarily; if you're using NopeNotepad, you can Copy/Paste the measures (right, guys?).

Just... in time. I just figured that out.

Very good.

Keep on with it, man.

Ok, I have a new sheet. It's not perfect, some parts are definitely wrong, but it's the best I could figure out.

For future reference, it'd help to post what your new sheet is in the current post so people can more easily see what it is!

It's a good start, but needs a considerable amount of work. The good news is that most of what you wrote is correct.

A few major things that popped out to me initially are:
- The whole song should be in swing. Here's a file with the marking added and affecting playback (https://www.dropbox.com/s/z9gdckug39pfpzu/Yoshi%27s%20Crafted%20World%20-%20Main%20Theme.mus?dl=1)
- The melody's rhythm is incorrect in measure 8
- In some places you have the left hand playing the same notes as the right hand but a couple of octaves lower. This makes the song sound quite empty, and there's generally something else you can do (for example in measure 8, there are bass notes from the voice you were writing in before that you didn't include).
- We could make the left hand part more interesting - for instance there are offbeat notes in another voice that we could put in the left hand of the first 7ish measures and other similar parts.

This is just to get you started, feel free to ask about anything (particularly the parts that you know aren't good).
