Alright, methinks I got them all. The files have been updated according to your guys' suggestions.
Let me know if there's anything else!

If you don't want to beam across things like m1 RH, then you should split places like m2 beats 3-4. 1+2 8th notes instead of 3 together (or 2+1 like in m17). It just makes things more visually consistent.
I'm not sure if this also applies to measures m.13 and m.15 at beat 3.5 (with the three eighth notes). I don't think so, but I could be wrong.

Aside from that issue, I've implemented all of Static's suggestions and updated the files accordingly.

Yeah, your left hand is never gonna get tired.

Just wanted to pop in and say hi and welcome :) You're off to a really great start with these sheets - much better than when I first started, that's for sure! Hope you enjoy the site and learn a lot from other arrangers here.
Thanks! I appreciate the welcome and the compliment! :D
I am certainly looking forward to learning a lot from the people here. There are whole layers of music that I've never known about before now and I'm sure the rabbit hole is very, very deep.

Welcome to cacabish's Arrangements Thread!

Hello! Here you can find all my arrangements of various pieces of video game music!
Please note that I am still very much a novice when it comes to arranging, thus, I am always looking for ways to improve and grow, so, if you have suggestions or comments any for the pieces below, feel free to let me know!


Black TitleOn-site. The corresponding links will go to the on-site files. Enjoy!
Green TitleNot on-site yet. These pieces are almost ready for submission and may just need small revisions. I'd appreciate second opinions and feedback on these particular pieces!
Yellow TitleIn submissions. Check the submissions thread for the posted piece!
Orange TitleNot on-site yet. These pieces have a ways to go before submission and likely need major revisions or reworking. Play and examine at your own risk!
Strikethrough TitleObsolete or replaced. May these sheets rest in peace.

Note: Sheets are organized first by series alphabetically, then by game alphabetically, then by title alphabetically. One-off or uncategorized pieces will be at the bottom under "Miscellaneous".

Now, without further ado, enjoy the music!

Thanks for stopping by! ;D

I nominate the topic of "Sad/Tragic Backstory" themes. These are pieces of music that typically play in the background of someone's monologue/dialogue about their past and how that has motivated them to crime or evil, gives them recurring nightmares, fills them with despair, remorse, or regret, caused a major shift in their life, etc.

They usually hit you right in the feels insomuch that these songs are typically among the few pieces of music that are culturally acceptable to have grown men well up with tears whenever they play, regardless of situation or company.  :'(

It's really cool to see a RollerCoaster Tycoon arrangement on the site!

Ctrl shift + is the hotkey for aligning centre, if that helps.
Regrettably, it doesn't help since I'm using Finale Notepad and that shortcut doesn't work. But, (hopefully) nothing a little math can't fix!

I'm corrected the files yet again and I've checked the alignment; it should now be centered with respect to the margins. If not... :(

I think there's something to be said here about going too in depth with your attention to detail.  For example, if you were listening to recorded music closely enough, the rhythms wouldn't actually be 'normal' rhythms.  Everything would be very slightly out since the performers weren't perfect, but if you transcribed it perfectly it would look awful.  Sometimes I think it's better to think about the intention behind the music rather getting into extremely tiny details in how it actually ended up when finished.  The question I'd ask myself here is, are the differences in articulation intentional?  These phrases are clearly meant to mirror each other and so in my opinion, I don't think they are.  In fact, I think writing them with the articulations different when the actual differences are extremely minor (I'm not sure I'm even picking up on all them myself, but you've probably listened to this track a lot more than me) actually obscures the similarities between the phrases.

tl;dr I think that it'd be better with the articulations made to be uniform.
I certainly feel like there is wisdom in this. Thanks for the advice!

Anyway, I updated the submission files - I straightened out the title, subtitle, and copyright and changed the F natural to an E# (definitely looks better). I also attempted to unify the articulations as best as I could. Let me know if there are any that I missed or if there are other changes necessary (or if the changes I made were detrimental).


Awesome job again! This sheet is super clean and accurate. And thanks for submitting a replacement :)
You're welcome and thanks for the compliment! ;D

I thought long and hard about the articulations and slurs when I was transcribing this piece and the parallel structures of the piece (easily the hardest part about transcribing this piece). I listened to the piece many, many times, at different speeds, and I kept being indecisive about it. Nevertheless, I found I just kept coming back to the same set of articulations based on the subtleties in the song. So, to answer that question: yes, it is due to the subtleties in the song that I heard, especially when you slow the piece down.

However, there are parts where I am unsure if I should just make it reflect a different section, just for sake of uniformity. Like, for instance, the slur in m. 17 starting on beat 3 instead of beat 2. I've listened to that part several times and I hear the notes go slurred starting beat 3, not beat 2. But I ask myself, what major difference does it make if it starts on beat 2 instead of beat 3? Is there something that would change, in a bad way, if that change was made? The part of me that wants the parallel structure says, "no", while the accuracy part of me says, "yes". As such, I'm not sure what kind of call to make in a lot of the areas you pinpointed, so I decided to lean towards accuracy, not uniformity, for this piece (albeit, my accuracy, which may not truly be accurate).

Yay for cacabish and gunthi getting their first sheets up!
Woo! Look Mom, I'm on TV! ;D

Terrific first sheet! I love how happy this song is haha.
Thanks for the compliment! I also love how happy this song is; I could listen to it for hours (and might have while arranging this)!

I implemented all of Latios's suggestions and have updated the submission files.
