Might I suggest adding b1 restrikes of the F into m6/10 etc? It makes it sound more consistent with the other measures that follow it, and it's not harder to play or anything.
I originally didn't because the bassline itself doesn't restrike there. The timpani does, but I think I'd rather leave it as it is. I'll think about it though...

[SNES] Chrono Trigger - "Undersea Palace"

This piece works really nicely on piano and it's fun to play - this is one of those times where I actually came up with the arrangement purely by playing it first rather than transcribing it directly into Finale.

Most unexpected, this one makes for a good halloween arrangement great job!
Thanks! Yeah, I definitely agree with that, it's the zombies menu theme after all.

[PS2] Nurse Witch Komugi-chan Magikarte - "Title Theme"
[MID] [MUS] [MUSX] [PDF] [Original]

Some interesting pieces of history here. The Komugi-chan one I actually discovered through an interview with Soyo Oka (yes, that Soyo Oka) which covers some of her freelance work after leaving Nintendo. There's some really cool stuff there and it's interesting to see how her music has evolved since her SNES days.

For what it's worth, when listening to the piece alone before looking at the sheet, I heard it in 4/4 all the way through. Only when reading the sheet while listening did I feel the actual meter changes rather than syncopation. Almost all of the time with jazz pieces (or really anything built off of drum patterns), I use the drums as reference for the time rather than the melody, so 4/4 sounds more natural to me personally, but I can see how the changing meters convey the feel as well.

m29 I think would be better spelled as an E#dim7 (E#-G#-B-D), since it better shows the resolutions to the F# chord in m30 (E# to F#, G# to A#).

Just another stop in my quest to arrange what has never been arranged.

Looks good!

Looks good, just one last thing: the left side of the tempo marking should line up with the left side of the time signature. You can probably also move it up a bit so it isn't so close to the staccato on beat 1 of m1.

m26 RH beat 2: Lower note should be Eb (also applies to m34 LH beat 2 Layer 1).
m34 looks the same as before, but everything else looks good

  • m10 RH beat 1: Middle note should be D instead of B.
  • m11 RH: Middle note should be G instead of Ab. There should also be an Eb under the G.
  • m20 LH beat 2: Top note should be D.
  • m26 RH beat 2: Lower note should be Eb (also applies to m34 LH beat 2 Layer 1).
  • m61 LH: I only hear the lowest octave, not the one above.

Looks pretty great, just a few nitpicky things:
  • A half note on beat 2 that crosses over to beat 3 is perfectly acceptable, so feel free to do that instead of using tied quarters.
  • The triplets in the melody in m4 and similar sound staccato to me.
  • The colons in the composer/arranger text are unnecessary.

Is beat 1 LH the only difference between m. 3 and m. 9 left hand? If so, I would say you don't need to duplicate the rest of the five bars in the repeated section - you could do something like have the repeat bars enclose m. 4-9.
Since the piece is so short, I wouldn't mind having the entire phrase repeat. At least aesthetically I like that it takes up the whole page. Either way seems fine to me.

  • In the recording you linked, that first chord sounds like it only lasts ~2 beats instead of a full measure (i.e. make it a pickup measure). The D natural also sounds (at least to me) an octave below where you have it, and it also sounds like there should be an A natural in the middle of the staff.
  • m3 (or m2 if you changed m1 to a pickup) LH sounds like it should be D-F-G-B (G7) instead of just a G chord.
  • Move the slur in m4 (or m3) RH down so it doesn't collide with the natural sign.
  • Composer/arranger text should be aligned to the right.
  • Bioware should be BioWare
  • ninsheetmusic should be NinSheetMusic

Yep, looks good.
