It's harder to hear in the video because of the in-game ambient sounds, but it's there. I tried playing the game myself to see if I could hear it better and I still hear the dyad. And, on the official CD album, the dyad is there too (take a listen here). It's not a mistake as much as it might seem to be, so I would prefer to leave it in.

For those unfamiliar with the game, this may not appear to be an appropriate Halloween sheet, but I think there's enough spooky scenery and mythology stuff going on to make this one fit.
Anyway, I'll start with the note stuff, and then we can get into some formatting details later.
  • You can go ahead and unhide all the chord markings. They're actually pretty helpful for people wanting to use your arrangement and score it for a band, or just improvise over it. You already put in the work naming all of them, so don't let it go to waste.
    However, a lot of them are incorrectly labelled. I'd be happy to go over them with you, but if you want to get to them yourself, here's my analysis:
    If you don't want to fix and add in the chord labels, still check this list for some enharmonic spellings you should change, as well as guides for some of your RH harmonies. Most of your notes are already correct (just the chord labels themselves are wrong), but below I'll go over some things you could change.
    Spoiler
    • m3/11 beat 4.5: C7b9 (respell Fb as En)
    • m4/12 beat 4.5: Fm9
    • m5 beat 4.5: Bb7b9 (respell Bn as Cb)
    • m6 beat 4.5: Cmaj9
    • m7 beat 4.5: Fmaj9
    • m8 beat 3: Bb9
    • m13 beat 4.5: Bbsus4
    • m14 beat 3: Bb (not currently labelled with anything)
    • m14 beat 4.5: Cbmaj7 (To get Finale to show the correct enharmonic spelling, choose the Chord Tool, go to the Chord drop-down menu at the top, and uncheck Simplify Spelling.)
    • m21 beat 1: Fm9
    • m23 beat 4.5: Bb9sus4
    • m27 beat 1: G7b9 (respell Cb as Bn)
    • m27 beat 4.5: Cm7
    • m28 beat 3: This is still part of the previous Cm7 chord, so you don't need to label it separately.
    • m29 beat 1: Fm9
    • m29 beat 4.5: Gm7b13
    • m30 beat 3: Cm7
    • m31 beat 1: Fm9
    • m31 beat 4.5: Bbsus4
    • m32 beat 3: Bb (not currently labelled with anything)
    • m33 beat 1: G#m9
    • m33 beat 4.5: C#7b9
    • m35 beat 1: F#maj9
    • m35 beat 4.5: D#7b9 (respell Gn as Fx)
    • m37 beat 1: G#m11
    • m37 beat 4.5: C#7b9
    • m39 beat 1: D#sus4
    • m39 beat 2.5: D#7b9 (respell Gn as Fx)
    • m41 beat 1: G#m11
    • m41 beat 4.5: A#m7b9
    • m43 beat 1: D#m11
    • m43 beat 4.5: B#m7
    • m44 beat 3: Fxm7 (respell Gn and Dn as Fx and Cx, respectively)
    • m45 beat 1: B#m11/E# (respell Fn as E#)
    • m45 beat 4.5: Fxm7 (respell Gn as Fx)
    • m46 beat 3: B#m9 (respell Cn as B#)
    • m47 beat 1: Bmaj7
    • I can explain these in more detail if you want, but in short it's just because of how these chords resolve. Lots of circle-of-5ths progressions in this piece.
    [close]
  • For that chord tied into m1/9, I think the Eb is a D there, but you can leave it if you want.
  • m1/9 LH beat 3.5: There's an Eb 8th note here (middle of staff) instead of just a held quarter note.
  • m7 LH beat 3.5: Bn should be Cn.
  • m8 RH beats 3-4: Since the melody takes over at beat 3.5, you might want to consider making beat 4 just Eb instead (since it's the same as the pickup measure).
  • m13/31 beat 4.5: This chord is actually a Bbsus at first, resolving to Bb on beat 3 of m14/32. There's no D in the accompaniment before beat 3.
  • m21 RH: I would move the F to G instead, since it's actually an Fm9 chord and the F is doubled in the bass.
  • m25 RH beat 4.5: Wouldn't it make more sense to use the Gn grace note here since that's the top voice?
  • m33: This chord is missing a B (G#m9 chord).
  • m34 beat 3: This chord on beat 3 adds an Dn, creating a C#7b9 sound.
  • m37/41 beat 1: This chord is also missing a B (G#m11). I probably would go with B-C#-F#-A#, bottom to top. You don't need to double the 9th (A#), and the 5th (D#) isn't required.
  • m37 beat 4.5: This C#7b9 chord is missing the Dn. The Dn plays throughout m38.
  • m41 beat 4.5 RH: The flat 9th (B) is pretty prominent in this chord, so if you want you can move the bottom C# to a B (either up or down).
  • m45 beat 1 RH: This chord is B#m11, so you can include the 9th (Cx) if you want.
  • m47 LH beats 3-4: I hear the bass going B-F#-B-C# here instead of B-G#-A#-C#.
  • m48 LH beat 3.5: The bass restrickes on C# here, so it's a 3-note pickup back to m1.
  • m33-end: This might work better in Gb major, not only since it keeps everything in flats, but also because of how it resolves back to Eb major. In m45-48, you'll notice it has roughly the same progression as m13-16, which is written with flats there. Writing it in Gb will remove a lot of those double sharps.
Let me know if you have any questions

For m53 beat 1.25, I think I hear the E under the G now, though it's a bit hard to tell. The G is definitely the more prominent note but I also don't hear a note above it, so that would make it part of the upper voice anyway.
Sorry if I was unclear, I meant you could keep the E as you had before. But it's fine with the G too.

Either way, I'll approve this one, nice work

Yeah, after looking at it again I changed my mind. The 8vas look good. I've updated the files with those

- Yeah you're right about those chords. They aren't that hard to play (except for the Bbmaj9).
- For the 8va markings, I think it's fine as it is. I usually use them if it goes above 5ish ledger lines for an extended period of time (or if its just one really high note like the D in m16). The LH also gets similarly low at points and I think it's readable there too. this is where my inner jazz trombone player comes is talking again
- And for the mp, I put it on the rest bc I'm thinking of the entire piece getting mezzopiano there. But the more I think about it, you're right, and if I was transcribing each part of this individually, I would have the mp placed under beat 1.5 for the harmonies and under beat 1 for the drums.

Looks great! Just a few more details:
  • m28/36 RH beat 3: The half note in the lower layer is off-center, so just delete it and re-enter it and it'll be positioned correctly.
  • With the melody in m25-40 flipped up, the spaces between systems are a bit more cramped. You might want to try having 5 systems on page 2, and 6 on page 3.
  • For m53 beat 1.25, I think I hear the E under the G now, though it's a bit hard to tell. The G is definitely the more prominent note but I also don't hear a note above it, so that would make it part of the upper voice anyway.

That I would like to do, but I have absolutely no idea how to notate that. So for now I just put the chords down an octave.
The way I did it was through the Custom Line Tool. Click the Smart Shape Tool, and the toolbar appears will have an icon on the far right (or bottom if it's vertical) side. This is the Custom Line Tool, and to access the menu you have to ctrl+click it.

At the bottom of the window, click Create. This will bring up the Smart Line Designer. At the top left Line Style dropdown menu, choose Solid. Make sure Horizontal is unchecked. The thickness I used was 0.0625, but you could go thicker. Then, make sure all the values are set to 0 (all ten boxes), and choose None for both End Point styles.

Now you can choose that line by selecting it from the Custom Line Tool menu and create short vertical bars.

I think Bloop did it another way, but I don't actually know how they did it. It might be easier to do than this, so maybe ask later.

Somehow I always forget that Sakimoto wrote the music for this game, cool sheet.
Although with so many dotted quarters on beat 1.5, you might want to consider using writing 3/4(6/8) or something.

  • Why not put this in 12/8 (or 12/16)? I hear that dotted 8th pulse a lot more strongly than the longer 6/8 pulse, but maybe that's just me.
  • Some dynamics and (de)crescendos would be nice. This doesn't stay at p for the entire thing.
  • m15 LH is missing an Eb between the low Eb and the Gb after it. It's all 16th notes through that measure too, no 8th note. It's also pretty faint but I think it's there.

Looks good! Just make sure to get this last bit when you can:

m3 LH beat 2: Change the 16th to a staccato 8th to match the RH.
My bad here, I meant m4.

This is quite a sheet, that's for sure. Let's see what's going on here...
  • You forgot to list the developer in the copyright (Software Creations). You just have the publishers listed, but developer is just as (actually probably more) important.
  • Some of your (de)crescendos on page 1 are a bit inaccurate. For example, in m9-10, the music decrescendos through the first half of m10, then crescendos around beat 3 of m10. There's a few more spots like this as well.
  • m23-24, 27-28, 31-32 RH: These Fb major chords are actually Fbmaj7 chords, so you can move the Fbs to Ebs instead (since Fb is already doubled in the bass).
  • m25-26 RH: The top note on all these chords should be Gb instead of Bb (basically it should look like m37-38). I think Bloop had mentioned this too.
  • m34 RH: Unless you want to beam them a little differently, those 16th note triplets should just be 16th note sextuplets.
  • m35-36 RH: Instead of doubling the Cb on top, I'd suggest removing it and putting an Eb above the lower Cb. This helps complete the Fmaj9#11 chord here.
  • m47-50 RH: So, there are two chromatically moving voices here, but they actually both go down in pitch at slightly different speeds. They start at the beginning of m47 as Eb-Dn (as you have written), but by the end of m50 they're a minor 3rd apart (F#-A). Both of these pitches are actually a bit higher than where you ended at m50. I would rework this section with perhaps longer tremolos that gradually get wider intervals, but making sure the start and ending points are accurate is the most important.
  • m50 RH: This slides back up to m47 on the repeat, so you could put a glissando here and write a note saying "1x only" or similar.
  • m47-78 LH: Instead of using discrete chords, you could use low LH clusters (see this or this as examples). Or, alternatively, just use really low Abm chords (i.e. move all the current ones down an octave or more). This would allow you to move the RH melody down to its correct octave as well.
  • m51/55: Don't cross beat 3 in 4/4 time! The dotted half notes should be quarter notes tied to 8th notes for all measures with that rhythm.

  • m8 RH beat 4.5: This triplet should be C-A-G#.
  • m9/11/13/15 beat 3: Ebs should be D#s. At least to my hear, this gives off more of a EmM7 or Gaug sound. This also applies to m41-48.
  • m16/48 LH beat 4.5: D# should be Dn.
  • m25-40 RH: If you want, you could add that half note string voice (the one you wrote in m39-40) throughout this section, omitting notes or changing the octaves as you see fit.
  • m25-40 LH: Some of these chords should be inverted down by one note, and the B chords in all the even measures should just be F#-A-D#. This is what I'm getting (same for all the measures in this section - chords only, ignore the bass):
  • m32 RH beat 2: This note sounds like it's longer just like the surrounding notes, not staccato.
  • m36 RH beat 4.5: This note should be tied (unlike m27).
  • m49/52 RH beat 1: These 8th notes sound staccato to me.
  • m52 RH beat 2.75: This 16th note sounds a bit longer (i.e. tied into beat 3).
  • m54 RH beat 1.25: This E should be a G instead.
  • m58 RH beat 4.75: This D# sounds more like an E, and it sounds like it's tied to the next measure.
  • m62 RH beats 3-4: The guitar part sounds like it mirrors the bass rhythmically here:
Cool sheet

Edit: One last little thing, I'm not sure "Andantino" is really the best tempo indication for a funk tune like this. I mean it's technically correct but it's not really stylistically correct if that makes sense. Just the tempo number will suffice, or maybe put Funk or Funky or something similar.

Whatever you did with the .mus, it was a success! I can see the notes.

Some extra things:
  • m3 LH beat 2: Change the 16th to a staccato 8th to match the RH.
  • m6/10 RH beats 1-2: Flip the tie here since it's in the upper layer (you can select the first note of the tie and press ctrl+f).
  • m7 RH: You can delete the Layer 2 rest since there isn't anything there anyway. Should look like m11 RH.
  • m8/12 RH beat 4: I would consider moving the B here (under the E) to a G instead, to avoid having to repeat the B with one finger between beat 3.75 and 4.
  • m16 RH: These were the extra 16ths I mentioned. Up to you if you want to add them or not, but it doesn't make it too much harder to play imo:
  • m20 RH beat 3: To avoid the repeated A across beats 3-4, consider swapping the C and A on beat 3. So, in other words, the 16th notes on beat 3 would go Eb-A-Eb-C.
  • m22/24 LH beat 2.75: Ab should be G# since it goes chromatically up to A.
  • m24 RH beat 4.5: Similar to what I said about m8/12 RH, I would probably remove the A on beat 4.5 to avoid the repeated A. You could change it to F, but that's already in the LH, so I think it would be better to just have the one note here.
