Re: Libera's Arrangements (Xenoblade Chronicles 2 sheets!)

It took 8 months, but I finally got to 100 sheets.  That's an average of 2.48 days per sheet, if you're interested.  Anyway, here's #99:

Loneliness: [Musx] [Pdf] [Midi] [Mus]

Surprisingly enough, the original is not actually a solo piano piece; there are a bunch of places where the piano is playing notes that are way too far apart to play with one performer, so I had to make some adjustments.  I'll also have to fiddle around with the playback to make those downwards rolls work properly, but that can come later.


#100 took me forever and is probably among the most difficult piano arrangements I've attempted so far.  It's certainly the longest in terms of bars!

Those Who Stand Against Our Path: [Musx] [Pdf] [Midi] [Mus]


Enjoy, and we'll see if I can get another 100 sheets out in the next 8 months (probably not).

Listened to your "Those Who Stand Against Our Path" transcription!

Your Bar 4 sounded off to me melody-wise; the original there sounds like it has the same melody as Bar 2 to me.
The D's in the right hand of Bars 50 and 145 should be an octave lower (at least that's the impression I get from the original).
I'm not hearing C's in the melody of Bars 56, 64, 151, and 159 in the original; I'm hearing eighth rests instead. (If the C's are in the original, they're so much quieter than the rest of the melody notes that I'd skip them.)
In Bars 85-92, I'm hearing the second highest notes of your chords, not the highest notes, as the melody notes in the original.
I think Bars 93-100 sound better with one of the hands incorporating the roughly-eighth-note drum kit beats of the original. I like that louder lower melody you have at that point, though.
The 16th-note runs in those bars sound fine for the most part, except for Bar 90, where they sound a bit off to me. With YouTube at 50% speed, I think the last 4 16th notes are actually 2 16th notes followed by a 16th-note triplet.
For some reason, the playback at Bars 91-92 (in my Finale Notepad) repeats at least one upper note instead of respecting the tie like it should.

Song's awesome, though--I'm glad you transcribed it, too!

Hey, thanks for listening!

Your Bar 4 sounded off to me melody-wise; the original there sounds like it has the same melody as Bar 2 to me.

From what I can tell, there are two parts.  One does the same thing as bar 2 but the other one play a very distorted Eb a quaver earlier.  Bar 4 is different to bar 2 in the original, and while you could suppress that in the arrangement, I feel like it's better to try and realise it in some way (as I have done.)

The D's in the right hand of Bars 50 and 145 should be an octave lower (at least that's the impression I get from the original).

Regardless of the different parts going on at that moment, it doesn't make any sense, to me at least, to break up that very simple melodic line into something that sounds very disconnected.

I'm not hearing C's in the melody of Bars 56, 64, 151, and 159 in the original; I'm hearing eighth rests instead. (If the C's are in the original, they're so much quieter than the rest of the melody notes that I'd skip them.)

Yeah, it's a decent point.  I think I originally added them for feel reasons, but I don't think they're necessary.  Fixed.

In Bars 85-92, I'm hearing the second highest notes of your chords, not the highest notes, as the melody notes in the original.

I think that describing anything as the melody here is pretty questionable, but I might play around with the voicings in this section later.  Part of the reason why I used this voicing is for balance reasons: in bars 93-100 it means you have the bass tripled, the third on its own and the tritone doubled which sounds pretty good.  Alternatively I could put the highest voice down an octave in bars 85-92 but that would mean that it would invert going into bars 93-100.  I don't know how much of that made sense, but maybe that explains some of my thought process?  But, as I said, I might have more of a think about it.

I think Bars 93-100 sound better with one of the hands incorporating the roughly-eighth-note drum kit beats of the original. I like that louder lower melody you have at that point, though.

This is something I thought about doing but decided against.  The way I see it, either moving drum rhythms into one of those parts I've written or introducing a generic bassline is never going to get the right feel of the extra rhythms that come in for those bars so the best option is to leave this section as a contrast to the rest of the very rhythm heavy arrangement.

The 16th-note runs in those bars sound fine for the most part, except for Bar 90, where they sound a bit off to me. With YouTube at 50% speed, I think the last 4 16th notes are actually 2 16th notes followed by a 16th-note triplet.

Generally speaking a lot of the places where I've got the electric guitar riffs I've simplified them.  All four of the riffs in that section start at different times and have subtly different rhythms but I decided to value consistency and simplicity in the piano part.  Also, triplet semiquavers are very fast and while I have written them in elsewhere in the sheet, those are contained within a section that is specifically labelled as such that the performer can do things as they want to.

For some reason, the playback at Bars 91-92 (in my Finale Notepad) repeats at least one upper note instead of respecting the tie like it should.

Yeah I mucked up the playback there at some point while making the sheet and couldn't be bothered to fix, but since I was editing the sheet anyway I've fixed that now.

Hey, congrats on 100 sheets in such a short amount of time; that's awesome. You've been working hard at not only helping check sheets, but producing high-quality ones along the way.

Congrats ;)

Thanks!  I try my best. :P



Going to see if I can get round to replacing some of the ... questionable Final Fantasy stuff on-site, but to start here's something new:

I've been meaning to do this one for a while and luckily I think it turned out pretty well.

Hymn (Variations): [Musx] [Pdf] [Midi] [Mus]

I'm not going to include all 11 youtube links here, but for reference (and because I like there being a picture to go with the post) here is the first one:

Re: Libera's Arrangements (Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice sheet)

So yeah I was working on some FF stuff, but I basically spent most of today watching my brother play Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.  This music, and the part which it plays in, I thought was really cool so I just kind of threw this together.  It's probably my strangest piano arrangement so far haha.

I'll put the links in spoilers since the game only came out on Friday:
