[SNES] Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars - "Fight Against a Somewhat Stronger Monster"
[MID] [MUS] [MUSX] [PDF] [Original]

This one works surprisingly well on piano.

Everything should be fixed now, plus some additional changes. The measure number thing was because I had originally copied this from my other Resetti sheet without changing the numbers back.


There are no English titles for this track, so I just based it on this album. I'd be fine changing it to whatever else though.

Last time I checked, this isn't on YouTube, so here's a rip directly from the game.

There are no official track titles for this game, so I picked this one based on what the building is called in City Folk and New Leaf, which I think would help people find it.

Awesome, I'll accept now, nice work

I think that makes sense regarding the rhythm stuff. Especially for a piece like this that has more weird rhythms and harmonies, I think having that flexibility helps in readability and whatnot. I shall accept now

Looks great, I'll approve. You could move the 8th rests on beat 3 of m1 and 3 down to the middle, but it's not necessarily required.

Looks good mostly
  • The "gradually crescendo [...]" text should also be in Times New Roman.
  • m51-55, 165-169: An unintended side effect of moving those upper notes to the RH is that those RH accents are pretty close to the LH part. You can increase the distance between the staves in these areas (there's a few other spots like this too actually, like m157-162).
  • m118 LH: I think it would be easier if the D was under the top G, so the LH alternates between the low G alone, and D-G on top. It feels a bit more comfortable to play, and won't affect how it sounds really.
  • m99, 201, 207 LH: Maybe some courtesy A naturals for these spots? You don't have to include them if you don't think they're necessary, but they may be helpful.
  • m226: Might make more sense for this note to fill the entire measure; the usual way to do this in 9/8 is a dotted half tied to a dotted quarter, with the fermata over the dotted quarter.

This is looking pretty great already, so I just have some smaller things to comment on:
  • m7 LH: Maybe use Fb here so there aren't two Fs of different varieties. Also fits with the chord better (Fbmaj7#5).
  • m10, etc.: Generally I'm not a big fan of putting dotted quarter notes on beat 1.5 in 3/4, since that grouping is more of a 6/8 thing. I'd prefer an 8th note tied to a quarter.
  • m18 LH Layer 2: The half rest should be split into two quarter rests, like elsewhere in the sheet.
  • m21 RH: It sounds like E is the highest note of the chord instead of Ab. Also I think I hear a C in there somewhere, and the RH notes seem an octave lower than what you have written. This is what I'm hearing:
  • m50 RH beat 2: Since this F is in both the first and second layer, it's kind of ambiguous how the note is supposed to be played. If you want the legato first layer to have preference, I would just remove it in the second.
I think that's it

I am hearing m32/36/48/52 as you have them now. Those extra 16ths are hard to hear at first since the texture is so dense, but the more I listen to it the more I can make out that melody. All the other changes look good as well.

As for m47/51, after listening again I don't hear an Ab in either case. Both measures sound the same to me.

Ah yeah I remember checking this one out awhile back in your thread. Nice to see some Radiant Silvergun sheets.
  • m8 LH: The bass goes from C# to Cn here, like in m16.
  • m15 RH: That E natural is pretty close to the dots of the chord before it. Maybe move that note over a little bit.
  • m18/22/38/42 LH: I think the last bass note is shifted over to beat 3.5 on these measures.
  • m32/36 RH: The 2nd chord is missing an F#.
  • m48/52 RH: Not sure I hear the 16th note C on beat 1.25 here. It sounds more like just two 8th notes, Bb and D.
  • m49/53 RH beat 3: These 8th notes sound more separated than the surrounding notes, though I guess not as much as beat 3 of m45.
  • The D.C. is hanging off the side of the staff just a little bit.

This looks really good! But I have some details to go over:
  • For m1-4, I don't think playing a 2-note tremolo is going to be that taxing for the player if it's only for 12 bars. I'd put repeat bars around m1-4, and add in a note at the end saying "optional: play 3x" or similar. For the crescendo, you can remove the hairpin and just put in text saying "gradually crescendo through repeats" or similar.
  • You don't need the beat division numbers since the beaming tells the reader the same thing, but I guess it doesn't hurt to be as clear as possible. Yeah, I guess leave those in.
  • For all text, the font should be Times New Roman to match the rest of the text on the sheet. Dynamic-related text (like the aforementioned crescendo direction) should be italicized; other stuff doesn't necessarily need to be but it doesn't matter.
  • Single notes are fine for the guitar part, but as the piece builds, consider maybe adding some 5ths above the low Gs, especially m122+ (when the distorted guitars come in). Up to you though.
  • m53-57/170-174 LH: Have you tried playing this section on a keyboard/piano? It's not impossible to play with the LH, but I think it would be easier of those upper accented notes were put in the RH - they're well within an octave range of that high G.
  • m85-103 RH: Those long held notes are played as a power chord in the original (i.e. an added 5th).
  • m103/213-214 LH: A courtesy natural on the A would be nice, since these are the only places in the entire sheet with An instead of Ab.
  • m99 LH: This measure should be Eb-D-D.
  • m112/223 RH: The Ab in the vocal melody sounds like it's held for the measure, not playing with the guitar part.
  • m121 LH: There's an additional D in this tremolo here.
  • m175-177: This goes D-Eb-Eb-F.
  • m202-206 RH: Would probably look better in bass clef.
  • m232: Since this is a fermata anyway, there's not much reason to change time signatures here.
  • m28-30 and similar: (Save this for last because it will affect the measure numbers; all my feedback above uses the current numbers) Maybe it's just me, but I hear the 8th notes in m29, etc. as starting on the downbeat of a measure, rather than a pickup. Instead of 6/8+6/8+5/8, maybe 9/8+8/8 would work better.

However, I did want to note that I changed the chords of m24-27 LH slightly. What I'd written down before (your suggested chords) just didn't gel right with me, so I changed them to be what I felt was a bit more accurate to the song. I did keep the pedal Bb though, so that should be okay right? In addition I added a D to the chord on m40 to account for the harmony I added in m39. Thanks for the feedback.
Yeah, that looks good. I just gave a rough idea of what that section could be like - the most important thing imo was having the Bb as the bass voice. The new chords sound correct to me.

I'll accept now, nice work!

Makes sense to me, mostly. I'd prefer the inclusion of the Bb-A voice in m2, since those are part of the chords too (on the last chord, the upper F's don't actually play there - that's the voice that moves to Bb).
I also distinctly hear a D on beat 7 of m2; I'm not actually hearing a C in that chord at all, so this would be something like a Gm9/F. Maybe someone else can weigh in on this, but that's what I'm hearing at least.

Everything else looks good though, and while I don't agree with those voicings above, I think they work within the context of the sheet (I'd still prefer they be changed though). I'll approve.
