This was actually born as a contest entry where each musical section can only use 3 melody notes at most - I hope you like my video game cutscene chase theme Dark Chase anyway!

Like funeral marches? Then you might like my Funeral March No. 2 in D Minor! Beware of its unusual mid-piece modulations to A flat major....

Even with my years and years of piano lessons under my belt, I have abnormal difficulty with large leaps and transitions between large chords, but fast single-note runs (e.g. scale runs) are fine and tremolos are OK. I can also keep up fast repeated-note runs without switching fingering for short periods (generally by vibrating my hand). I am not good with cross-rhythms: I already struggle with 4 against 3, and the only one I am confident with is 3 against 2. I can deal with regular syncopation and mixed meters better, though. Likely adding to my struggles with some advanced pieces is the fact that the largest interval both my hands can play accurately is an octave each--I always play adjacent inner notes if I try to reach a major or minor ninth.

For example, I find Rachmaninoff's famous Prelude in G Minor, Op. 23, No. 5 to be more difficult than claimed.

This is one example of how a comprehensive difficulty rating can prove hard to implement.

In the mood for something more tranquil-sounding? Try my newest piece, Prelude in D Flat Major!

Wondering how well I did for my second piano-and-non-piano duet? Liked my first galop? Well, here's my Galop No. 2 in D Sharp Minor for piano and violin!

This happens to be my first boogie-woogie piece: 12-Bar, 4-Note Blues! Yeah, this is a contest entry, and I was restricted to using only 4 notes in one hand (I picked C, D, F, and G for the left hand).

For Fight On, I hear A's at the end of m65 and a B at the end of m66.
Decided to switch to A's for the last 2 M65 LH notes and B for the last M66 LH note since these seem to be the most popular. However, I have misgivings about the first switch, as I clearly hear a drop in pitch at the 2nd last M65 bass note in the original in both versions, and the 3rd last M65 bass note in the original is an A.

I also tried https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BG7DYLdNBx0 as a source with no stutter at the beginning.

Fight On!
  • m37 RH: There should be a D above the C on the 2nd dotted quarter note.
Added.
  • m39 RH: On the 3rd dotted quarter note, there should be a D above the C, and the A should be a G.
I kept listening to M39 and I really never heard a D above that C, unlike M37, so I didn't add it. I prominently hear an A in that chord (even louder than any G), so I still kept it, but I felt the G was justified, so I added it.
  • m41 RH: There should be an E above the D on the 2nd dotted quarter note.
Added.
  • m43 RH: On the 3rd dotted quarter note, there should be an E above the D, and the B should be an A.
Similar logic to M39: due to what I hear there, I didn't add the E, kept the B, but added the A.
  • m55 RH, Layer 1: Whenever this simple syncopated figure shows up, the first note should be a bit shorter. I'd recommend just a quarter note followed by an 8th rest.
Done.
  • m18, 24 LH, Layer 2: The last dotted quarter note G should be a quarter note D (third line) followed by an 8th note G (first line).
Done.
  • m28 LH: The end of this measure should look like the rest of it (get rid of that middle note).
Done.
  • m38 LH: The last two 8th notes should be F and F# (below the staff).
Kept listening to those two 8th notes with both sources, even at 25% speed, and I kept hearing them as E and G instead of F and F#.
  • m42 LH: The last two 8th notes should be G and G# (first line).
Similarly to M38, I kept listening to those two 8th notes with both sources, even at 25% speed, and I kept hearing them as F# and A instead of G and G#.
  • m51, 60 LH: The bass has a cool pattern here that you might want to include instead of, or alongside, the guitar part you have now. Up to you.
I hope you mean M52 instead of M51. Listened to those measures in the original and decided to add the cool pattern, but unfortunately, its formatting is messed up in Finale Notepad, the last sharp is unnecessary but needed for playback, and a sharp and a note collide. These problems are in both M52 and M60 LH.
  • m57 LH: The 4th quarter note should be D (third line).
Done. Also corrected the rest of the LH in that measure.
  • m58 LH: The 2nd and 4th quarter notes should be E (third space).
Done.
  • m59 LH: The last two notes should be B (second line).
Kept listening to that measure with both sources, even at 25% speed, but I kept hearing the 2nd last note as an A, so only the last note was changed to a B.
  • m65 LH: The last two notes should be A (first space).
Kept listening to that measure with both sources, even at 25% speed, but I still hear both notes as G's.
  • m66 LH: The 2nd and 4th quarter notes should be E (third space); the last 8th note should be a C (second space). There is no B, contrary to Maelstrom's image.
Kept listening to that measure with both sources, including at 25% speed, and it turns out that I can't seem to hear the bass's version of that last 8th note at all. I made it a D since that was the loudest low note I could hear there this run. I changed the 2nd and 4th quarter notes to E, though.
  • m68 LH: The last 3 notes should just be two notes: a quarter note and 8th note, both G#s (first line).
Done.
  • In general, whenever you have that quarter note-8th note pattern in the LH, the quarter note should be played staccato. You could write them all in or use a simile or two, but they shouldn't all be normal length.
Managed to pull that off for the LH. I wrote them all in since some sections actually don't sound like they need the staccatos.
  • Page titles and numbers aren't all within the page margins, or aligned with each other.
  • Copyright text size is too small.
  • On Page 1, the composer/arranger info should be below the title; you can move the systems down and closer together to do this.
  • I can help you out with the formatting if you need it; just focus on the music first and I'll edit it at the end.
Sure, please help me with the formatting!
So, some general LH things; I really think that you could spice up this arrangement by including some 5ths and/or octaves whenever there's notes just repeating for awhile. It really brings out that classic rock shuffle vibe, but I also just think its more fun to play. (And this is my own bias here, but writing stuff that emulates the drums is also really satisfying to hear and play imo). I know you're working with Commander6's arrangement as a framework, but don't feel like you can't experiment some more. You made a lot of improvements to the RH, I'd just personally like to see some more in the LH.
(My feedback above applies to the transcribed bass line as you have it, but feel free to replace it with other parts if you'd like)
I keep hearing the single lines in the original instead of 5th and octave versions. I do believe a couple of the notes in the earlier versions were emulating drum hits (e.g. the early version of M28 LH).

...If you're interested in a contest entry where I had to write a 10-measure-long piece with at least 10 C major chords in it, then you may as well listen to 10-Measure Piano Metal.

Good work here!

I personally find the topmost accented RH notes in Bars 7-8 to be C instead of the G you have. In the recording, B flat is prominently heard as a loud note - if not the loudest note - in those chords, although your accented RH chords there do contain that B flat.

I also find the use of a quarter note instead of two eighth notes for Beat 4 of the LH of Bars 44, 46, and 48 to be kinda jarring and to rob the transcription of its momentum there. (The accompaniment of the original at Bar 50 actually uses a quarter note, so you're safe there.)

Here's my fourth monophonic video game theme transcription: "Battle of Anne" from Bravely Second!

Bravely Second

Portions of this transcription were simplified or even fudged, and I'm the least certain about my transcription of Bars 155-156.

Like my sonata-allegros? This one is more heroic than my usual fare: Sonata-Allegro in D Minor ("The Wandering Hero")!
