Debate topic for next Tuesday: Are cannons truly valid instruments for an orchestra? Or should they be replaced with something safer, like Tesla coils?

I've worked on the general comments, hopefully I didn't miss anything from them.
In regards to the above, it's looking better! One specific thing is, when primo left hand plays something on beat 1, that doesn't mean that they have to actually keep the note depressed for the whole measure - it's fine for secondo to play it. So what that means for places like m. 9 and 12 is that I would suggest putting the accompaniment back at its original position since it doesn't collide with the melody (the notes in the same range are played later).
I don't quite understand how to execute what you're talking about here. May I get a visual of what you're saying?
- m. 22-29 has some somewhat odd-sounding octave jumps, not too sure at the moment what to do about them but let me know if you want some specific suggestions
I believe I had what you're talking about here in the piece before originally in the Secondo right hand, but decided to replace it with what's in there now since the same part's in there both times and that'd make it more active than just quarter notes in the Secondo part for the section.

All right. Done!

I'd just put some in m14; that one stuck out to me the most.
Got it.

Let me know if you have any concerns!
None that I can think of. I've now removed those sheets from the "Revised Arrangements" list.
Title Theme (Diddy Kong Racing)
- Starting at m11, I think the melody could use more articulations, mainly staccatos.
I got the rest of your changes done I believe, but I'll have you judge the staccatos I added in.

Was anything about this sheet changed other than the formatting? The same for Fossil Canyon.
No, not really. Just simple format stuff. "Dino Domain" had a bit more than those two to clean up, but that's about it for the revised stuff, so like most revisions, I won't be takin' any credit on-site and all that. By the time you mentioned that sort of thing, I had already done them.

-Could you spread the tempo marking and the swing marking out a little more?  They're really close together.
-The Gns in bars 59-60 should be G#s right?
Done and they already were sharped... Perhaps my version of Finale is fowling up the appearance?

All right, Static. I think I got all those changes jotted down.
- m30-33 might sound cool as 16th notes (alternating the octave with each note), instead of having both octaves together as an 8th note.
I thought about this before, but I wasn't sure if it was player-friendly at its tempo. It's in the sheet now.

All right, so I think I got most of your concerns done, Libera. I double checked over the bass, so I caught a few more rhythms that were absent. I also put slurs in places with two or more instruments to distinguish them as suggested. Now here are some questions and answers about some of the comments:
-Intentionally simplified rhythms in bar 61?  You wrote in the other triplet stuff elsewhere so I'm just wondering.
Yes, that was intentional.
-The beaming of the guitar line in bars 30 and 32 should be consistent (same for 74 and 76).  If you break the beam in one place you should break it in the other and vice versa.
I don't see/understand what you're talking about here. On the file, both sections mentioned are beamed consistently and I don't see any broken beams around the sheet in general. Do you mean since it's two eighths to a quarter in the left hand, then it should be split because of that?
Frosty Village
-Another point about that section, why is the F# on beat 2.5 included the second time but not the first?  Also, the rest in 32/76 should be at the normal height.
Well, that's because in the first parts(Measures 30 and 74), the guitar only plays count 3 and onward, unlike in the second parts(Measures 32 and 76). That's the accordion-sounding part that's got counts 2 and 2.5 in those first parts.

Oh. I thought he meant the one in the LH and thought I changed it already in the file. I got it now.

Did you make the changes on an old version of the file by accident? Latios' changes from July 11th are missing.
Sorry about that! I didn't know it was. I usually only have the one file. Should be good now!

Koopa Beach - Super Mario Kart
- I'd put staccatos on the four eighth notes at the end of m3 LH.
- The dynamic marking in the pickup measure is too close to the RH and should be lowered to be aligned evenly between the two staves.
- I think it's more correct/conventional not to beam over rests, so you might consider breaking the beam over m14 beat 4.
Done and updated!

Asking again - what specifically is your concern for having the second RH raised an octave? At a glance it looks just fine in most places.
- Looking at m. 6-13, the only part that overlaps is around beat 4 of m. 7/11 - you can easily lower the Bb in the left hand beat 3.75 down an octave
- Looking at m. 14-21, similarly the only part that looks awkward is the same Bb in a similar figure in m. 14/18
My whole concern was mostly the section I just talked about. The sections you're talking about, I already understood how those could be changed, but I wanted to focus on what section I felt was more in need of attention before I went to those parts. Here's what I have now: You said that most if the notes aside from the high B flat in the measures you mentioned would be fine, so I decided for Secondo RH that I'd bring down any notes the high B flat and above with a few exceptions to make it sound more consistent. I think I got something well settled out now, but tell me what you think.

Also, those first few notes had me expecting Spanish Flea. Can ya blame me? :P
There's definitely some inspiration for sure.

Here's the source. I apologize for it being an MP3. YouTube links for music from games like this are hard to find.
