Nice, accepting File Select and Overture

there's also a huge difference in quality between 2000 songs and 2010 songs
The difference between 2000 songs and 2010 songs is 10 songs.

- Sometimes I prefer showing the downbeat like that with swing pieces because I think it's a little easier to read.
Also, looking at this again, I added slurs to the pairs of dyads that aren't part of the main melody.
Sounds good, approved.

- Yep, that makes sense to me. Added a courtesy natural on the following E in m. 4 accordingly.
- That's how I would play it, but I get how it looks confusing on paper. Moved it to the LH.
Also approved.

I kinda wanted to just have everything be eighth notes, but looking again it makes sense to do what you suggested. Updated that.
Accepted.

I really feel strong disconnect between the set of 3 quarters in m1 and m5. Maybe make them dotted tenutos?

Notes look fine, but can we not have EngraverFont? It looks bloated and unprofessional.

defaults bad

Yeah, this is a rather old sheet of mine. I pasted it into my recent template.

Files updated, thanks for checking! :)

I don't use it a lot anymore for more rhythmically complex sheets, but I think sometimes it can look better than Maestro. Everything in Maestro is just really small to me. For this particular sheet I don't think it's a big deal either way.

For me it's partly the size, and partly that defaults honestly tend to look a bit lazy and unprofessional, especially old defaults. Whether lat changes it or not is up to him, but I personally greatly prefer alternatives to engraverfont.

Also the fact that it was because it was an older sheet and not a conscious choice that I brought it up.

Picori Festival
- You might want to include those grace notes in the melody in m1-3.
- The accompaniment part in the original has this kind of airy, old fashioned dance feel to it because it's mostly just open 5ths; in contrast the accompaniment you have gives the song more of a "piano étude feel" (idk how else to really describe it) with the 3rds included. I think it sounds too heavy. You don't need to get rid of all the harmony, but removing the 3rds in the LH whenever there are triads sounds closer to the original to my ears. The RH usually has the 3rd anyway, and when it doesn't the 3rd is easily implied due to the relatively simple chord progressions.

Other than that, looks really nice

Thanks!
- I'd rather not include the grace notes in the sheet, I find them not too noticeable in the original and I feel they'd be too intrusive in a piano arrangement.
- Yeah, that sounds good - I did think it did sound rather heavy in some places. Removed some notes where there were triads.

Theme of Love
- m18 and 21 are missing some ties in the RH.

The Girl Who Stole the Stars
- Any reason you didn't include the flute countermelody in m11-19? You have the room (and the free fingers needed) to write it out there. You might want to experiment with the octave placement and such, but I think it would work nicely.
- m22 LH should have an Ab above the Gn.
- m24 RH should have a C on beat 4.5.

Oops! Got it

In m. 13-15 I don't think it adds much. Pitch shifted down the flute in the second half of m. 13 would just repeat what the melody already does on beats 1-3, m. 14 just overlaps the Eb on beat 3, and m. 15's F would obscure the Db in the melody on beat 1. I did already write in the flute part in m. 15-16 and 19 where it fills in space nicely, but otherwise I think it's a bit too distracting without being able to differentiate it as a distinct countermelody when played.

Alright, that makes sense. Sounds good then. Both sheets have been approved
