Title: 4-D stuff (NEW: "Meet Ilia (Washing Epona)" LoZ:TP)
Post by: 4-D on February 19, 2009, 05:42:28 AM
Note: I'm on haitus for these right now, since I'm working on the "Fixing the Sheets" Project II (http://ninsheetmusic.drshnaps.com/smf/index.php?topic=1443.0) (my stuff's on page 2)

I'm still working the kinks out of this one. One thing is I need someone to make key changes at measure 33 and 45 for this one (download the .MUS and you'll see) since I only have the free version of Finale Notepad. Do you guys think I should simplify the last page?

This one is just about finished. I'd appreciate it if someone could change the time signature to 3/4 at measure 25 for me :)

This one should be ready. To inspire you to like the song enough to play it on piano, here's what the original song sounds like (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sx_Qqzs4cfk).
EDIT: by request, here is an adulterated version: .MUS (http://www.mediafire.com/?tyod2tt4key) | .MID (http://www.mediafire.com/?zz5ifkdyizd)

I've really improvised this. Maybe I should simplify. Feedback please

.MUS (http://www.mediafire.com/?dmavyw4mzdi) | .MID (http://www.mediafire.com/?ibhbjmmgzno)
I know G-Han already had their version of this song posted, but this one is more accurate and still playable. I've messaged him for permission to switch his with mine. I'm not done with it, yet

Accepted:
LoZ: Majora's Mask "Song of Healing"
LoZ: Twilight Princess "Dungeon (Light World)"
Chrono Trigger "Silent Light"
Chrono Cross "The Girl who Stole the Stars"

Tell me what ya think!

I quite enjoyed Yoshi's Ending Credits. Though I believe the ending needs a key signature slapped on (45+), to reduce the accidentals.

Yeah, unfortunately I only have Finale Notepad (the free version) and so can't insert key signature changes in the middle of the piece. Someone else will have to do it for me. Do you think you could? I'd greatly appreciate it

[SNES/NDS] Chrono Trigger - "Silent Light" - 4-D

That first measure is played twice, and musically it just feels akward if it's only played once.

Actually the "Rain Scene" is the "Intro" theme isn't it?

And the A Link to the Past "Epilogue" is already a song on NinSheet Music, although, I have to admit, this version sounds more accurate. Also, the placement of the codas sounded a little weird to me. Are they in the right spots?

Actually, the first measure is played four times, and I've notated that in the MUS file. It's just that I only own the free version of Finale Notepad and can't turn the repeat measures on (thus the MIDI doesn't sound the repeat)

Good call. I've taken note and changed the title. As far as the LOZ:LP "Epilogue" is concerned, yeah, I know that G-Han had already posted a simple version of it, but I've IM'd him about permission. And the Codas are a tiny bit confusing, but shorten the number of pages used. Should I go ahead and take out a Coda and make the piece longer?

Post by: NasiDe on March 06, 2009, 10:10:43 PM
Making the piece longer does work but I think that you could accomplish the same thing by moving the codas to a differeent spot. But I'm not sure where to, if what you have now is correct...

Get rid of those abnoxious "A's" in the bass, and the the piece will sound good.

Well, for people who are familiar with the original, that's the way it's supposed to sound (i provided a link to the original song you can listen to (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sx_Qqzs4cfk)). I intentionally kept those repetitive bass A's in because all the copies of the sheet music i found on the net left them out and in the original song it's very important to the way it sounds. But to appease you (lol) and others who may feel the same way, I've put in a link of the song without that repeating note

Alrighty, you're correct. but since finale can't really make them sound good, make them apart of the chords instead of having them repeat all the time. then when things start to pick up, have them change to quarter notes.

Heh. Let's make a compromise. How's this? (http://www.mediafire.com/?tyod2tt4key)

It was alright, but it didn't sound the same, plus that, upon closer inspection, you had some wrong notes. I even put the right repeats. Here, this is what I came up with. My gift to you.

I like how you turned the repeating A's into quarter notes (I thought you meant something else earlier) but the extra notes in the melody chords make it sound too cluttered, imo.

Alrighty, well, you can edit it as much as you want. I just couldn't stand the song having wrong notes. Just know that those notes are correct.

Do you mean that I'm missing some notes? or that some of the notes I have shouldn't be there? If you want to have right notes, look at the second page of my first version in the bass, cause I noticed that yours had "wrong notes" there. The point of the sheet music is to convey the song well on the piano, not to reproduce the original song note-for-note (transcribing requires a little rearranging, which is what I did). It looked to me that you just beefed up your version and that's fine, but I intentionally simplified the right hand a little. Thanks for the tips, though  :P. I really appreciate feedback (it's better than none at all!)

Haha, alrighty, good to see that you know what you want. I like that in a person. If that's what you were trying to convey, you did good.

After listening to your version a few times more, I've noticed that beefing up your melody chords does help keep the repeating A note from standing out too much and getting annoying. I might try to do something like that (the repeating A does sound annoying on the piano!)

Okay cool, whatever you choose to do. I'm sure that it'll sound fine in the end.

I had a look at your Dire, Dire Docks arrangement, and I think it's great, but measure 25-32 could be in 8va, that's at least how I play it. Don't you think that sounds a little better, as I know the song goes "lighter" there than the rest of the piece?

first, thanks for listening to it and taking the time to weigh in. it's certainly one of my fav mario 64 themes.
as for your suggestion, you've got good rationale for it. it's an artistic call, so the person playing it could improvise that part if they wanted (as you did). I might make a note in the sheet for that as a suggestion
