Title: Nine Lives' Arrangements - Leisure Suit Larry 2's "Kalalau's Love Song"
Post by: NineLives on March 22, 2018, 01:51:46 AM
Here is my duet arrangement of "Kalalau's Love Song" from Leisure Suit Larry 2: Larry Goes Looking for Love (in Several Wrong Places) (MUL). I'd appreciate any feedback on this piece and suggestions for adding or omitting anything from it. Thank you!

A few notation tips:
Use ritardandos instead of changing the tempo and an a tempo to bring it back. That's how it should be notated, and it'll look a lot more professional.
Make the final 2 systems 4/4 and notate the final measure with a quarter->dotted half note with a ritardando overtop of it.

Ah, mkay. Thanks for the tips! I'll try to apply those to it!

After this one's all good, I'll fix the Mario Paint one with its little kinks.

Finally got a more recent game on my list. I may do more of Super Bomberman R, I love its soundtrack.

I think your data is good information that I'm looking for.

I was a bit surprised not to see these themes on the site. When I'm able, I'll certainly try to send these in.

The arrangements are good as a whole, but a couple of rhythmic things that may not matter depending on how the updaters prefer reading them.

Such as in Marble Zone,  in measure 8, I would suggest reworking the rhythm after the dotted eighth to having an eighth note followed by another eighth note tied by a dotted quarter note.

While it is a lot to look at, it's much easier to distinguish where the beat lands rather than just notation functioning as durations of a note

Starlight zone has many areas where this could be applied to as well such as

to

Once again, it looks like a lot of ink, but it's much easier to to see where the beat lands in my eyes

Play around with it. If you don't feel that's where your visual style lead to, make something in between.

Also, I would suggest listening to the orignal Marble Zone again; some of your notes are wrong, and I noticed one reason this is is because you have absolutely no accidentals written on your sheet. Listen to the original, but slowly.

I listened in and I think I got most of what you were talkin' about on "Marble Zone" changed. As for the accidentals, I could only dish out a couple of them from listening. You can check the new PDF, and if it's still off by a bit, I'd like feedback on that.

I'd like to give credit to E. Gadd Industries for the helping out on and fixing up "Night Duel" with me.

"Smooch of Divine Protection - As Much As Possible" has been updated a bit. It now sounds a little more accurate to the organ.

This arrangement took a while, but I did try hard to get most of the notes accurate. I may need a second opinion on that though.

It's been a little while since I updated this. The past arrangements have been removed from the post so I can revise them.

I have a few suggestions (I'm only trying to help you):

- my computer blocked the PDF download to "Versus", saying that it detected a virus. While this may not be true, have you considered switching to Dropbox?
- you should really include all past arrangements in your original post, so that we can go back and check ones made before your latest sheet
- listening to the MIDI, I can tell you have a lot of wrong notes (from memory of my own arrangement of this). If you can try to tackle the above, we can get that taken care of

Again, I'm only trying to help you. But please, these suggestions will make things so much easier for us.

There's the Dropbox links then. For the past arrangements, I'll put 'em back after this sheet's sorted out. I'd like to focus just on this one for now.

Ok, before we go any further, listen to that bass line in the original again, and fix any mistakes you find in your sheet. There's too many for me to list.

To be honest, I can only hear a couple of notes that were wrong and changed them. Other than that, I don't hear what you're hearin'. Is there a possibility that the reference in the YouTube is compressed in a way that it makes it come out wrong? I promise I listened to it along with making the sheet and I listened to the bass line on the slowest speed I could make it. Is it perhaps in a different key or something of that nature?

Well, the most glaring error I can hear is the two LH eighth notes at the beginning of m. 1 - 8, which should be Cs, not Ds. If you use AudioStretch (Flash) (http://diostretch.com/audiostretchforflash/), you can raise the pitch of the song up an octave to hear the bass more clearly (I use it for that often).

All right. I changed the Ds to Cs and changed the sheet with what I heard from listening to the pitch shift.

If anyone has any suggestions for these pieces, just let me know. I wanted to bump this up on the list so I could possibly get some help on them. Any suggestions for any of them besides the one from Wario's Woods would be much appreciated. The reason for that one is because "Versus" has already been submitted. Thanks!

It's a been a while, but I got another sheet ready. It's a bit more simple compared to my other arrangements. Hope y'all like Larry Laffer.

What?! Are there more games? Just who is this Larry guy?? I just saw like 5 min of this new Wet Dreams Don't Dry game and I couldn't believe something like that could exist, let alone more. Still, nice theme I guess! lol

Yeah, I think there are at least eleven games, with 3 not having the original creator on the team. The series is a bit of a hit and/or miss to most folks.

I thought I'd return to Chulip for another arrangement. I feel it's a bit of an underrated soundtrack. It's a kind of weird, but in a good way sort of thing.

Mario Kart has always had some great tunes, but I feel this one may be one of its best tracks (No pun intended). Very emotional this piece.

Well, I've arranged another Leisure Suit Larry tune. This one was pretty fun to make. I'd like to apologize about the source as it's a walkthrough of the game instead of just a music video. I couldn't find one of just the song as it is, so I'm stuck with this one. The song starts on 3:07.
