Either work the intro into the piano or have like a "tap" section to imply that the performer should tap on the piano or something.

Hello,
     I'm working this tune here -

Around 0:36, there are some tenths.  I, personally, can reach them, but some may struggle.  I'm really not sure how to arrange this, as the left hand is busy with a baseline.

Any ideas?

You could feasibly turn the tenths into thirds, methinks

What is the standard practice when arranging music from a game that has the same soundtrack as an earlier game in the series? Should it be submitted as the original game or as the version you based it on?

For instance, I'm arranging the Summer theme from Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town for GBA which can be found below:

But though Friends of Mineral Town isn't an exact port of Harvest Moon: Back To Nature for the PS1, it is set in the same town and uses mostly the same soundtrack! Here is the equivalent song from the original:

As you can see, the song itself is nearly unchanged though the instrumentation has been adapted for the GBA's sound chip, and I don't think they're different enough to warrant separate arrangements.

I also wonder whether most people are aware that these two differently titled games have the same soundtrack but altered for different systems, which could cause confusion if they're looking for a sheet from one of those games. (And let's not get into the confusingly titled Harvest Moon: Boy and Girl, which is the PSP port of Back To Nature...)

Check out my piano arrangements!!

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

The general rule is that the piece is credited to the original game it's from. If the differences between two versions are significant enough or if obscurity is a big factor, exceptions can be made. In this case, I personally think the differences made by the GBA's compressed sound quality (I was able to notice a missing instrument in the first 10 seconds) are enough that if you were specifically arranging the PSX version, the arrangement might turn out differently, in which case I'd say this arrangement should be submitted under the GBA title. But other opinions are welcomed!

Actually on a closer listen you might be right, there's also some note length differences that could be reflected in an arrangement. Thanks!

Obviously in this case I would list the original composer, but should I credit the composer/sound designer from the GBA version as well? I'm assuming they are the one who re-arranged and adapted it for the GBA.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but here's an idea -

Lots of people would love to play the plethora of music on this site but are blocked off by the difficulty of some straight transcriptions.  What if people could submit "easy" versions of songs on the site?  I think that would increase the appeal of the site immensely.
