Quote from: Static on March 27, 2021, 07:24:41 PMTempo marking should be aligned with the left side of the time signature.

The quarter note pickup should be aligned with the quarter rest in the LH.

Copyright text, page number, and running title should all be within the page margins.

Quote from: Static on March 27, 2021, 07:24:41 PMIt might be cool to include that arpeggio line as an optional RH part in m1-4, perhaps written with smaller notes.
Good suggestion, I did consider this; however, I decided to exclude it. Not only would it take up a lot of space, but also if I did add it, then it would drop out at measure 5. In my opinion, it would seem odd to include it for such a short duration. Likewise, I tried to keep the piece difficulty closer to intermediate rather than having anything too crazy.

As you have it, the easiest fingering would be 5-1-5-5, but if they were all in the same octave you could do 4-3-2-1 or 2-1-2-1 or something. I don't have my keyboard with me right now so I can't play it, I'm just moving my fingers on my desk lol. If you think it's fine as is it is, then keep it.[/li][/list]
After toying with it a bit, you're definitely right. Excellent idea.

  • m8 RH beat 4: I hear the slur one note later than you have it (from D# to E in m9, with the E on beat 4 of m8 being staccato).
Oh, wow, you're right. That second voice threw me off. Good ear.

Quote from: Static on March 27, 2021, 07:24:41 PMm11 LH beat 4: The slur is touching the accent (also throughout the piece, the distance between the edge of the slur and the accents are not always consistent - look at m7 vs m9 for example).
To me, it seems like a hair difference. Sharp eye xD

Quote from: Static on March 27, 2021, 07:24:41 PMm20 RH beat 2: I hear B in Layer 2 being slurred/tenuto, but I think it's fine to keep it staccato - it makes it a bit easier to jump to the octaves on beat 2.5.
Yup, that's exactly why I made it the way I did-- to make the octave jump a bit easier.

You updaters sure have been staying sharp! Thanks for the feedback~
It's been too long, folks.

Haha, yeah. I do a lottt of that. I'll be happy when I find something more in my field.
Mostly mowing, weedeating, and blowing. Manual labor and stuff.
We've done weedpulling and mulch laying but not much.

Congrats, Winter. 8)
Awesome, guys^^

Work has been winding down (I'm doing landscaping...yuck), so that means I'll be having more time for things again, including sheet submission/arranging again.
Just wanted to mention, I made a reading mistake. I made the wrong assumption that the updaters were asking Slow to write in a key that was not included in the normal, common set of key signatures.

With that said, I do agree that Bb minor would be significantly easier to read. This is a great sheet, Slow, and I'm looking forward to its acceptance.
Just for clarity's sake on my part, I was suggesting adding a page to the current arrangement, not submitting two sheets. Basically this: copy/paste the arrangement to a second page in the existing finale file, change the key, label that second page as an alternate version with the key being the only difference, and submit it as one arrangement (both pages being included in a singular arrangement/file).
I'm not trying to throw a wrench in the works, but I do have a suggestion and a few thoughts.

I understand where you guys are coming from, especially as a performer myself; however, I believe Slow is right concerning his argument of arranger discretion, especially when it comes to something as trivial as a key signature. Additionally, Slow is right when he says that Bb minor is not generally accepted in the musical community. Forcing someone to write their song in a key that is not generally accepted is ridiculous in my opinion. As an arranger, he should have the choice to choose the key signature for something as ambiguous and/or preferential as this.

What about a compromise? Slow, would you be willing to add a second page to the sheet? Surely we could tack on a second page and label something along the lines of "easier rendition," or "alternate key." Honestly, I know people that find flats easier, and people that find sharps easier, so I would be hesitant to say something like "easier version" as it pertains to the flats version.

Thoughts, updaters?

Yeah, as Mael said, you can view it and listen to how it sounds with Finale Notepad. I believe you can print the sheet, as well, if you wish.

I'm not sure of the quality of the sheet, but I did arrange this song. It's on my page under the title, "Party at Peach's Castle."

Man my page is really buried  :'(
Awesome work on your Origami King sheets! I've been looking for time to do some cause that game has some great tunes, so it's awesome to see the ones you did. I'll definitely be adding them to my "to-learn" pile. : )
I'll consider these. I've been playing through this game and I've been having a blast... obviously I love the music 😂
Very cool, guys! It's awesome to see so many replacements going up.
Man, do I love the To the Moon soundtrack. Awesome work, Lat! : )
