YouTube Link:

It's definitely playable as is; I've recorded a cover but just haven't uploaded it to youtube yet lol.

Prob the most questionable part is the LH bracketing in m13-20? It works, but it just might not be the most efficient—depending on whether you prefer disjointed diads on the LH, vs. big (but relatively slow) jumps with the RH.

Thanks for your time! ^^

I was arranging this track I would do something a little different at measure 13.



The reason I would do it this way is not for playability, but for the colour. Having the notes of the middle voice repeated again one note later in the lower voice creates a slightly more strident sound. For my taste it's just a little bit too much and I think that the sound of the more sparse version I posted above better reflects the mood and timbre of the original.

It's your arrangement, so it's up to you how you want to go about it but hopefully there's some food for thought.

Yeah, that makes sense. Lat independently suggested a similar thing actually :P

So for similar measures (13, 15, 17, 19), I'll just do this then.

Made those edits for you :)

I've chatted with Kaphita about this one privately and think it's good to go now.

One food for thought though: m. 24 does a D>C# resolution but the D doesn't really fit on beat 1 with the current chord. I think it works as is, but wasn't really sure what to do there.

You could just replace the C# in the RH with a D if you wanted but I agree that it sounds good as-is. The addition of the D just creates another suspension and since there is already a suspension in the melody, it already has that suspension-y sound.

Right, that makes sense. In theory I could put an arpeggio A2 > D4, but it doesn't really add much and doesn't really line up with the difficulty of the rest of the arrangement—plus as you said Deku, the RH already has a suspension.

I'm not really sure what the procedure is from here since this is my first submission, but I'm happy with it as is! Let me know if there's anything else I need to do. Thanks for the help! :)

Really nice! Just a few things:
- Move the Layer 2 rests in m13/16/17/19 up onto the center of the staff.
- I would space the systems out more so that there are four systems on page 1 and three on page 2. Page 1 is a little bit cramped right now and you have plenty of space to move things around.
- You could add some more notes to the LH m13-20 to follow the low strings on beats 2/2.5, but if you've tried it that way and prefer it as is, that's good too. Never mind, it looks like this is what Deku suggested against.
- Does the track loop in-game?

Thank you :))

Move the Layer 2 rests in m13/16/17/19 up onto the center of the staff.
Alright! You mean to the default location, all the way to the center? Also what's generally the convention on this? Cuz Lat told me to move it down earlier lol :P

Sounds good, will do!

Nope, it's kinda like BotW in which certain tracks kinda just randomly play depending on where you are in game. It ends on the sus chord, which I didn't like at first, but I've gradually warmed up to haha. (Also... the lick :0)

Oh. I just move it up when Layer 1 looks like it's far enough away that it won't look uncomfortable with a rest in the center of the staff (and yes, default location). I guess you could probably go with preference here.

Yep that's what I normally do too, but here the lower layer starts so far off the staff (at least in 13/15/17) that I think it makes more sense to align the rest with the beginning of the line rather than have a sharp vertical drop between beats 1-1.5.

That said, either way is fine really and I'll leave it up to you (Kaphita) to confirm what you want :P I updated the files with the page layout, happy to update the files again with the rest positions if needed.

Was indecisive so I found the answer in Behind Bars :)

The spaced layout looks a lot more comfortable now though, thanks! Anything else?
