Looks great! We just chatted a bit about that rhythm in m34 LH and agreed on moving the last note over a 16th. I'll accept now.

I only had a D bass for m11/12 since it sounds like there's an additional B in both m15/16. I do admit that it sounds a little off without the third, so I modified those two measures such that the B is a half note for beats 1-2 and there's an additional D playing alongside the A's in measure 16
Oh wait I see now. Yeah, what you have is fine. I guess listening a third time, just having it as you had before (all B 8th notes) would work too.

We discussed this over discord, and the file has been changed accordingly, so I'll accept now

m16 LH beats 1-2: Consider changing the top note to A instead, to show the suspension to G#. It fits with the chord (B7b5, aka B half diminished 7th), and F is already doubled in the RH.
Sorry, I meant just Dm here; the D bass you had before was correct.

The rest of the changes look good, though for the grace notes starting at m41, maybe add an additional one in the middle. It kind of sounds weird when there's a larger interval there, since it's supposed to mimic a short slide/gliss. Up to you though.

Looks great! The ties especially look much better now, but if you wanted to do some more tiny adjustments, I'd align the right side of the ties as the beginning of m4, and in m7.

  • Official title is Last Day, and I still see that title around YouTube and other sites sometimes along with Final Hours. I'd go with "Last Day (Final Hours)" or something.
  • I'm trying to figure out if there's a better way to distribute these measures. Page 2 looks a lot emptier compared with the rest even though it's similar material. Seems like what you have is really the best it'll look.
  • The Bb in m18 RH Layer 1 sounds like it's rearticulated several times (there's several other notes that sound like this too, but this measure stood out to me the most).

I think that's it.

This looks really good, not too much to add here
  • consider using an oxford comma for the composer list OK now for real feedback:
  • m16 LH beats 1-2: Consider changing the top note to A instead, to show the suspension to G#. It fits with the chord (B7b5, aka B half diminished 7th), and F is already doubled in the RH.
  • m17 RH: The 2nd Layer is different here than in m18. I'm hearing this:
  • m17-18 RH: The lower voice in Layer 1 can be tied into beat 3 in Layer 2. It won't sound right in playback, but I think it would be more appropriate than a 16th rest since that note is held with the top one.
  • m25 RH and similar: These are Dm7 chords, so moving the RH D to C might be nice here. Actually it looks like you already did this for all the other measures like it, but m25 still has a D.
  • m28 LH beat 3.25: Flip the staccato down here since the rest is hidden.
  • m30/62 RH beats 1-2: Some accents might be appropriate here.
  • m41/45 RH: Those slides/grace notes sound like they start one semitone lower than what you have. Also, maybe adjust the curve on the first pair in each of these measures, it should have a more flat contour like the ones on beat 3.
  • m66 RH: Ab should be G# (AmM7 chord)
  • m71 RH: Up to you, but I think dotted 8th rests usually look better in these places.
  • Yeah I wasn't sure what to go with because of the Bb7 (or just Bb) chord that appears in measure 64 alongside some other spots with that figure, but you're right that it would fit better with the melody so they've all been changed
    There's a bit of theory that applies here; these chords are functioning as augmented 6th chords (specifically Ger+6), but going to the root instead of the dominant.
    In jazz theory, these are just called tritone substitutions (E7 and Bb7 share the same tritone, G#/Ab and D, and their roots are a tritone apart), so they both can function interchangeably. This also means the spelling is interchangeable too. In a lead sheet you'd just see this written as Bb7, but G# would likely be used because of the melodic context.
    Note that if there were an E here in addition to the other four notes (Bb, D, F, G#), it would be an E7(b9,b5) chord instead. But either way, G# is preferred here.
  • m. 53 beat 3 should use sharps instead of flats (D#/F# chromatically neighbor the other chord, as well as make more sense over a B bass). Actually this is making me rethink the spellings for the previous couple of systems where this melodic figure appears... not sure but I think it would make sense to change the spellings for this measure at least
    Like with the above point, the spellings are interchangeable here. A-D#-F# forms an Adim chord or an inverted D#dim chord. This is a secondary dominant of both E7 and Bb7. I would go with how each note resolves. In m41, 45, and 49, the Eb moves to D and the Gb to F. In m53, the D# moves to E and the F# to G. The additional notes in the bass can be interpreted as passing tones in m49, but the B is part of the chord in m53. You could interpret it differently, but I think this is the simplest approach.

This looks really great. I don't have any big things to really say here, but I do have a few tiny details maybe worth considering:
  • I'm almost not sure if I can pick out the D in the original chord, but when I hear your sheet it sounds correct, so I guess it's fine.
  • Maybe move the half rest in m2 to the left a little bit, so it's in the center of the measure.
  • This may seem very nitpicky (it kinda is), but a staccato quarter note at q=36 is probably going to performed longer than what you might intend. In the original it's a pretty short note, so I might suggest a staccato 8th note instead. It's probably fine either way though.
  • Maybe add a diminuendo in m15 as well.
  • In m29, I know Bloop already mentioned this, but there's a lower string voice that goes from A to Bb. You could add it in the RH Layer 1 (probably just the A on beat 1), since you added similar inner voice movement in m26-27 and 32-33.
  • I'm assuming you left out the additional Bbs in Layer 2 of m30-31 for playability reasons? I don't think it's really that much harder to play than the surrounding bars.
  • At the end of m34, the last two 16ths sound like they should just be one 8th note, an Ab.
  • I'm not sure where you're getting that quarter note hit on beat 5 from starting in m34. The percussion mostly plays this rhythm in those spots (top line is tambourine, bottom is triangle):

    The bass almost sounds kind of like it has that pulse, but I think that's more due to how those low strings were looped rather than being distinct rearticulations.

m1/9 LH beat 3.5: There's an Eb 8th note here (middle of staff) instead of just a held quarter note.
I meant in the LH, but there is an Eb there in the RH too.

Everything else looks great! I took a listen to those spots and I think I'm hearing what you have now. In any case, what you have definitely feels better to play on piano. Just watch some of your accidental spellings; on page 3 the b9 of Eb7(b9) should be Fb. Likewise, for Db7(b9) it's technically Ebb, but keep it as Dn since it's simpler and matches the chromatically-moving bassline in m38.

I just have some formatting/aesthetic points now:
  • The game was co-developed by Gulti, so you can add them to the copyright info.
  • Any time you have a grace note in the middle of a set of four 8th notes (such as m5 beats 3-4), you should beam those back together. For some reason, Finale breaks beams when you add grace notes.
  • There's a lot of ties that are touching surrounding notes (m7 RH beat 3, m15 RH beat 1, etc.) I'd go through the sheet and adjust those.
  • There are also ties that don't match direction when they go across systems, such as m3-4.
  • You're a bit inconsistent when it comes to using dotted half notes. Throughout all of Page 1, you use dotted halves on beat 1, but on Pages 2-3 you use half notes tied to quarters. I think just making all of them just dotted halves would look better and reduce clutter from the ties.
  • Similarly, you're also inconsistent when using dotted quarter notes. Page 3 has a bunch, but on Pages 1-2, you use quarters tied to 8ths instead (or the other way around). I'd just make them all dotted quarters.
  • m14 RH beat 4.5: If you want, you can unhide the half rest here and flip the ties to their normal positions. the ties at the end of m14 should match the ones at the start of m15.
  • There's other spots you can hide rests, such as m37, 39, and 41 RH. You already did that in m33 anyway. Leaving it is fine too.

It's harder to hear in the video because of the in-game ambient sounds, but it's there. I tried playing the game myself to see if I could hear it better and I still hear the dyad. And, on the official CD album, the dyad is there too (take a listen here). It's not a mistake as much as it might seem to be, so I would prefer to leave it in.

For those unfamiliar with the game, this may not appear to be an appropriate Halloween sheet, but I think there's enough spooky scenery and mythology stuff going on to make this one fit.
Anyway, I'll start with the note stuff, and then we can get into some formatting details later.
  • You can go ahead and unhide all the chord markings. They're actually pretty helpful for people wanting to use your arrangement and score it for a band, or just improvise over it. You already put in the work naming all of them, so don't let it go to waste.
    However, a lot of them are incorrectly labelled. I'd be happy to go over them with you, but if you want to get to them yourself, here's my analysis:
    If you don't want to fix and add in the chord labels, still check this list for some enharmonic spellings you should change, as well as guides for some of your RH harmonies. Most of your notes are already correct (just the chord labels themselves are wrong), but below I'll go over some things you could change.
    • m3/11 beat 4.5: C7b9 (respell Fb as En)
    • m4/12 beat 4.5: Fm9
    • m5 beat 4.5: Bb7b9 (respell Bn as Cb)
    • m6 beat 4.5: Cmaj9
    • m7 beat 4.5: Fmaj9
    • m8 beat 3: Bb9
    • m13 beat 4.5: Bbsus4
    • m14 beat 3: Bb (not currently labelled with anything)
    • m14 beat 4.5: Cbmaj7 (To get Finale to show the correct enharmonic spelling, choose the Chord Tool, go to the Chord drop-down menu at the top, and uncheck Simplify Spelling.)
    • m21 beat 1: Fm9
    • m23 beat 4.5: Bb9sus4
    • m27 beat 1: G7b9 (respell Cb as Bn)
    • m27 beat 4.5: Cm7
    • m28 beat 3: This is still part of the previous Cm7 chord, so you don't need to label it separately.
    • m29 beat 1: Fm9
    • m29 beat 4.5: Gm7b13
    • m30 beat 3: Cm7
    • m31 beat 1: Fm9
    • m31 beat 4.5: Bbsus4
    • m32 beat 3: Bb (not currently labelled with anything)
    • m33 beat 1: G#m9
    • m33 beat 4.5: C#7b9
    • m35 beat 1: F#maj9
    • m35 beat 4.5: D#7b9 (respell Gn as Fx)
    • m37 beat 1: G#m11
    • m37 beat 4.5: C#7b9
    • m39 beat 1: D#sus4
    • m39 beat 2.5: D#7b9 (respell Gn as Fx)
    • m41 beat 1: G#m11
    • m41 beat 4.5: A#m7b9
    • m43 beat 1: D#m11
    • m43 beat 4.5: B#m7
    • m44 beat 3: Fxm7 (respell Gn and Dn as Fx and Cx, respectively)
    • m45 beat 1: B#m11/E# (respell Fn as E#)
    • m45 beat 4.5: Fxm7 (respell Gn as Fx)
    • m46 beat 3: B#m9 (respell Cn as B#)
    • m47 beat 1: Bmaj7
    • I can explain these in more detail if you want, but in short it's just because of how these chords resolve. Lots of circle-of-5ths progressions in this piece.
  • For that chord tied into m1/9, I think the Eb is a D there, but you can leave it if you want.
  • m1/9 LH beat 3.5: There's an Eb 8th note here (middle of staff) instead of just a held quarter note.
  • m7 LH beat 3.5: Bn should be Cn.
  • m8 RH beats 3-4: Since the melody takes over at beat 3.5, you might want to consider making beat 4 just Eb instead (since it's the same as the pickup measure).
  • m13/31 beat 4.5: This chord is actually a Bbsus at first, resolving to Bb on beat 3 of m14/32. There's no D in the accompaniment before beat 3.
  • m21 RH: I would move the F to G instead, since it's actually an Fm9 chord and the F is doubled in the bass.
  • m25 RH beat 4.5: Wouldn't it make more sense to use the Gn grace note here since that's the top voice?
  • m33: This chord is missing a B (G#m9 chord).
  • m34 beat 3: This chord on beat 3 adds an Dn, creating a C#7b9 sound.
  • m37/41 beat 1: This chord is also missing a B (G#m11). I probably would go with B-C#-F#-A#, bottom to top. You don't need to double the 9th (A#), and the 5th (D#) isn't required.
  • m37 beat 4.5: This C#7b9 chord is missing the Dn. The Dn plays throughout m38.
  • m41 beat 4.5 RH: The flat 9th (B) is pretty prominent in this chord, so if you want you can move the bottom C# to a B (either up or down).
  • m45 beat 1 RH: This chord is B#m11, so you can include the 9th (Cx) if you want.
  • m47 LH beats 3-4: I hear the bass going B-F#-B-C# here instead of B-G#-A#-C#.
  • m48 LH beat 3.5: The bass restrickes on C# here, so it's a 3-note pickup back to m1.
  • m33-end: This might work better in Gb major, not only since it keeps everything in flats, but also because of how it resolves back to Eb major. In m45-48, you'll notice it has roughly the same progression as m13-16, which is written with flats there. Writing it in Gb will remove a lot of those double sharps.
Let me know if you have any questions

For m53 beat 1.25, I think I hear the E under the G now, though it's a bit hard to tell. The G is definitely the more prominent note but I also don't hear a note above it, so that would make it part of the upper voice anyway.
Sorry if I was unclear, I meant you could keep the E as you had before. But it's fine with the G too.

Either way, I'll approve this one, nice work
