It would probably make more sense to use the transpositions rather than the instrument names, since they carry across to more than just one instrument or instrument group. The Real Book does this.
Yep. C, Bb, Eb, and Bass clef.

EDIT: Also, just whipped this lead sheet up for Scars of Time. Would something like this work?

Glad to see many of you are not opposed to lead sheets. If you guys don't know about "The Real Book', it's definitely something you should check out. It's a huge collection of jazz standards notated in lead sheet format, with minimal amounts of things written out, leaving a lot to the performer for interpretation. This format would work well for video game music! All you really need is the melody, chord symbols, and possibly some important basslines. This would open many doors for those who use the sheet music for solely the melody and are somewhat music-theory proficient.

Transposition of lead sheets is really easy, and only a few range issues need to be adressed.

Edit: Also, if you need someone to make lead sheets, I make them all the time, and already have quite a few video game lead sheets done already.

I guess for saddest, the first section of this song comes to mind.
This song also scores big for me on the spectrum of emotion overall, not just one of the categories listed.

Mario, care to explain why?

Personally, I find them very open to interpretation and less restricting than a piano sheet. Of course piano sheets would be more commonly used, but lead sheets would be a great alternative.

I understand that NinSheetMusic has a massive quantity of sheet music already uploaded to the site for all to view, but why solely piano arrangements? I'm not too well-versed in the early history of NSM, so there may be a reason that I have not though of. NSM is a site dedicated to video game sheet music, but why just piano? Yes, it's true that piano is a very commonly played instruments, and arrangements are fairly easy to write for it, but why restrict it to just piano? For individuals like myself, who often use the sheet music on NSM as a basis for arrangements, lead sheets would be a better fit. For those of you who don't know, here's a lead sheet of a video game piece.

I can see why this would not be as good for some individuals. Not all people fully understand chords and how they work, so a direct layout on a piano arrangement would work best for them. However, for instrumentalists on non-concert-pitched instruments, lead sheets can be easily provided in transposed formats and are readily accessible without weeding through complex piano parts. There's pretty much no chance that NSM will completely switch to lead sheets, but I'd like to hear other's opinions on the practicality of this form of sheet music!

Hey guys, it's insaneintherain. I was here a long time ago and stopped checking the forums... and I'd like to get back into arranging.

But first, hi! How are you guys?

(not sure if right place for this topic x_x)

Updated with an arrangement of the Dungeon Theme from Startopics. I thought this was on the internet somewhere already, unless one of you all already did it :P

Finally a new arrangement: Stal from Minecraft. Yes, I know it's not Nintendo, per se, but it needs to be on the internet somewhere. :P

Ha, thanks. Yeah, I wasn't really sure what thread to put this in.... :P

Yup. After a several month hiatus, I've come back to NSM to do some quality arranging and stuff. (Now that there's a new method of uploading and stuff with shadowkirby.) I probably won't do tons, BUT I'M BACK :D

Are you ok with portrait instead of landscape?

Landscape would definitely be the best, but I guess portrait is manageable if you absolutely have too. (maybe do both?)
