It's been a little while, but I'm back with more Harvest Moon!

A note about this sheet: I've intentionally left out the bass voice in the A section for the sake of playability. I think the waltz accompaniment is more important to the overall feel of the song, so that's what I went with. That being said I'm open to suggestions if anyone has a better way to incorporate that bass voice!

I’m using Finale v26 which may cause articulations to appear out of place if opened in an older version of Finale. Sorry!

This looks pretty good to me.  Other than the articulations, the only thing I can see is that I think beat 2, bar 16 in the left hand should be a minim like it is in bar 8.

Good good.  It's got my approval, although I'll need to sort out the articulations at the end.

Very nice! Just a few small things:
- m. 23 should sustain a half note D in the melody (only the middle layer dips down to C).
- Did you intentionally change the bass (lowest layer) in m. 18/19/23/24?
- Augmentation dot should be raised in 28 to not collide with the lower layer note. (Actually, that overlapping eighth note should be a E instead.)
- In the last couple of measures it sounds to me like the descending E-C-A are in the upper voice while the lower voice (A) is sustained. Did you write that differently on purpose?

I went over it again and you're absolutely right on all of those, thanks! About the bass thing, I think I had the wrong notes for that entire 8 bar section so what I have now should be exactly the same as the original. (I also moved the middle voice to the right hand to account for that.)

For the two bars (m. 23-24) where the middle voice goes to the left hand for reach reasons, should I put those voice crossing lines (not sure what the proper term is) to make that more clear?

Yes, a cross-staffed dotted line will do just fine :P

Everything else looks awesome! Last comment - with the A in both layers in the last measure and being tied in one it's a bit ambiguous as to whether or not it should be played (I think your intention is to play it). You could forego the tie and lower layer note, although it's fine as is - just an option.

Added the dotted line! I only put one for the transition from RH to LH, since when it goes back to the RH it's a new phrase.

I considered taking out the lower layer note, since that is probably how I would play it, but decided to leave it in so that the choice is up to the performer. It was worth considering though, thanks!
