I put them together because they're based on the same motif: The "Game Over" theme is based on the "Reaper" theme. That's why it made sense for me to put them together.

Gorram emojis, that should be an 8.

Watch your accidentals; usually doesn't make sense to write A# in one hand and Bb in the other (as in m. 8). In m. 10, I think G# would be preferable to Ab, since it implies a leading tone to the A in the next measure's F chord.

I made the changes Olimar suggested.

It's a really subtle effect.

I double checked, and the way I have [the top voice] written is correct. The first voice might sound like it's silent the on the second semiquaver value of beat one, but only because it's overlapping with the Eb in the second voice (in the original version of the song). Slowing down the chiptune makes it easier to hear the arpeggio moving from G-Eb-G-Bb in the first beat of the measure.

Really? That's very surprising. I've rarely ever seen "Piano Duet" in a professional score, it's almost always "Piano, four hands" (or "Piano à quatre mains", really, because French music).

The lower voice does, so the chord is not unclear.

In my experience, duo means two pianos but duet can mean either; hence the confusion.

I cut those notes since they makes the arpeggios impractical and don't really add much. If I were to keep any of them, it would probably be the last G since it leads to the F# in the next measure.

Hi! I have a few notes about this arrangement.

In measures 5-7, I'd recommend adding the beat 1 C from the middle voice, despite it also occurring in the top voice. Best bet would probably be in the top staff, stem down (replacing the eighth rest).

Regarding measures 8-19, it's bad form to beam quavers/eighth notes across beats. Best to split them into tied semiquavers (sixteenths), e.g. splitting the E natural in measure 8 so that the beats are clear. I see you do this most of the time, so just keep it consistent.

In measures 11 and 15, I think Ab would be more appropriate than G#, given the Eb and G natural in the same chord. It took listening to the song again to realize that there is a B natural in the chord there against the Bb. A courtesy accidental would be nice to add in that spot.

There are a few other small formatting things I'm not sure of, that might just come from not being too familiar with Finale. In an arrangement like this, tools cross-staving and hiding rests might come in handy; there are plenty of resources online that can help you learn the programme.

Overall, great work!

I think the right hand part in m6 should be changed to Layer 1 simply because there are no other layers, even if it's a continuation of Layer 2 from the previous measure. Not certain, though.
Not really necessary, since it'll look the same when published. For those looking at the .mus file I kept as a shorthand to let the reader know it's the same voice (and so I didn't have to switch back and forth as much while writing).

That interval on the second beat of m13 and m17 looks a little too big for the majority of pianists.
It's not necessarily meant to be played as written; an instance of allowing the performer to choose whether to cut the minim down to a crotchet, extend the note with pedal, or reach the 11th if able. This type of implied writing is common in Romantic era music.

There's a missing voice in the right hand of m12 and m16.
Uh...is there? I'm not sure what you mean here, there are as many voices in those measures as there needs to be. Could you clarify?

-You must have at least one opening dynamic mark.
I keep forgetting you guys ask for those.

-remove the forward repeat bar at the beginning, as it is unnecessary.
Huh. I usually add those to emphasize the "looping" of this kind of music, and no one's mentioned it before. If it's a style thing for site consistency, that's fine, just let me know.

Edited the sheet to include slurs and other small articulation changes.

Feedback / Piano Duet? Four Hands? Making a suggestion
« on: December 28, 2015, 03:37:05 PM »
Hey everyone;
I've been making some piano duet arrangements lately and I've noticed something odd about the site with how it labels duets, and I'd like to make a suggestion so that it's less confusing.
Normally, "Piano Duet" can refer to either two players on one piano, or two players on two pianos. I see that the site uses "Two Pianos" for the latter, which works well ("piano duo" might be more common, but I agree with using "two pianos").

For two players on one piano, I've almost always seen "Piano four hands" or just "Four Hands".
I feel that seeing "Piano Duet" and "Two Pianos" next to each other on the site can be confusing, especially for newer players who might not know the difference at first. If I may, I suggest replacing "Piano Duet" with "Four Hands", which would A. help distinguish it from "two pianos" and B. be more familiar to people new to the site.

I don't know if this discussion has come up before, but I think it would a good change overall. Let me know what you think about it.
