Thanks for your help! :)

Piano Arrangements / [N64] Corneria - Star Fox
« on: May 06, 2011, 02:20:52 AM »
Hey guys!

Above is the new Corneria replacement I just created. Everything appears to be in order, but as I promised to also submit this to NinSheetMusic, I'll need some assistance in getting the formatting right, as you guys are picky, and I don't have access to Finale. :) If you want this, feel free to take it, and change the heading, et cetera.

Thanks, and a huge thanks also goes out to Master_Gamer38 and olimar12345 for their help in getting this just right!

Oh, snap, wait. Wrong measures. :P I see what your problem is now, haha. Sorry!

16-17 as a 1st ending
17 still in 3/4
19-21 as 5/4

I don't know how I got those other numbers. Sorry again, and thanks a lot!

That sounds a lot better, good job!

I'd love to contribute, and help with these last notes, but I don't have Finale. If it helps, it sounds like a lot of the notes/chords are taken from the parts that you just fixed. (like, the measures immediately after the measures you changed, and so on)

Hm. First, remove the quotes from the title. While you're welcome to put them there for the NSM release, it isn't proper to have quotes over the title of something when it's actually the title. :P Also, when you modified it, it lost its tempo. Oops!

20-21 should be a "1st ending" for that section of the song. You know, put one of these over it:
| 1.

Measures 23-25 should be in 5/4, not 4/4. :) Also, don't forget that 17 needs to be in 3/4.


Measures 61, 63, 65, et alii. They're tricky, haha.  Maybe you could try using less notes in the chords there?

Hey guys!

This is, to my knowledge, the best-sounding, most complete piano score for Star Fox's famous Corneria theme. You will not find a better sounding arrangement! However, you will not find a harder one either. I'm tired of seeing all of these half-complete arrangements and recordings, so I decided to make my own. I definitely took some artistic license, but as good arrangements are definitely better-sounding than basic piano transcriptions, I feel it turned out very well.

Unfortunately, this song is NOT YET complete. I need somebody with the full version of Finale to make the following changes to the sheet:

Measures 20-21 should be played the first time ONLY. Add one of those little |---1.--| things.
Measure 21 should be in 3/4 time.
Measures 23-25 should be in 5/4 time. This will result in them being two identical measures.

Also, can you make the repeats work? It might do that automatically when you load it in the full version of Finale. I don't know.

Lastly, if possible (though not mandatory) if you could squish all of the measures up to the top of the page so they're not spread out, that would be wonderful.

Thank you so much for your help! As a thanks, I'll submit this to NSM when it's completed. :) Also, if you have any other suggestions on changes that should be made, feel free to let me know.

Hm. I think it sounds a little better with them down an octave, but I still think that part could be worked on a little bit. Not quite sure how, though. This really is awesome, though. You are doing fantastic. You should be proud of this one. :)

Man, this is turning out fantastic. You're doing a wonderful job, and it looks like you're just about done!

Here are my comments thus far. Of course, you're the arranger, so you're in charge, they're just personal advice.

1-10 are PERFECT!
11-14 are really close, but there's still something not quite right about them. Try removing some of the middle notes, and see what happens.
15-26 are PERFECT!
27-30 are the same as 11-14... need a little changing.
31-52 have all the right notes, so woot. :) However, as this is a piano arrangement, I feel as if the varying bass lengths (to dot, or not to dot?) as well as some of the staccato feels a little off in regards to the melody. I understand that's how the original goes, but I'm not sure it works on the piano. Try removing the staccato and rests, and see how it sounds. Piano songs often sound better with less staccato in the bass/harmony. Not always, but a lot of the time, especially when the melody/bassline don't fit together in terms of rhythm.
53-57 are PERFECT!
58-60 are questionable. They're probably okay, but we should probably get some 3rd party opinion there. They sound good, but strange. Then, the song is kind of strange. :P
61-75 don't quite feel right. You have the chords right, but I think the transition from string/brass to piano didn't work very well here. If you listen to the original, you'll notice that though there IS that higher-pitched string stuff, it isn't really what you predominantly hear. At least, not me. There's something more middle-tone in there. I'm not sure how to best fix that though. Maybe get rid of the top notes, and fit in the middle-tones? OR try lowering the entire thing an octave, and see how it sounds. I'm not sure how to best fix it. You definitely have it right, though. It just needs some stylistic changes.
76-85 are PERFECT!

This really does sound great. The main problems are just how you transferred stuff to the piano, not the notes you found. (except for 11-14, and 27-30, which have some wrong note in the middle somewhere) Keep it up, and ask for some other criticism. You're doing a great job, and you're a great arranger. Keep it up! This is ridiculously awesome.

Also, another idea I have that is optional, but would make the arrangement even better, is to consider the fact that this is a jazz piece. Jazz musicians pride themselves in being able to improvise within chords. However, with complex songs such as this, that can be quite difficult, so you consider adding the chord names above the bars. (eg Bbm7) That's entirely up to you, but would be a neat embellishment.

Keep it up! You're doing great.

Anyone else want to look at what he has so far and make corrections? I can't pinpoint what's wrong, but the last section doesn't feel right to me.

I don't think anyone's done this. It'd be neat to see made, though!

That's The_Grimace (Frank D'Angelo) playing. Read the credits: he and I were both responsible for making this puppy. :)

Yeah, I got it working.
This is looking good! :) I'm not too sure about measures 57-59 (anyone else want to look at those?) but the song is looking great.

Keep it up! This will be an awesome arrangement. You will definitely be famous for it. ;)

Are you sure you uploaded it correctly? I can't seem to download it. Is that just MediaFire being weird, or is it something on your part?

Try downloading and installing "Foxit Reader." Then download the PDF, and open it in Foxit Reader, and see what happens.
