Welcome to NSM and thank you very much for these! You did a great job here so far, but in Walking the Plains some of the very high and low notes look very messy, maybe you should use 8va's and 8vb's for that. ;)

I'll take a look at that... once I get back from school  :P
Thanks!

Well... First of all: Hi, and welcome!  :)

You did a nice job with those arrangements! But I agree with Korados, some parts are messy and need octaves! Anyways, nice arrangements; and better than my first ones, trust me...  ;D

These are pretty good! I do have a few specific criticisms, but I'll share those when I can make a closer comparison between your arrangements and the originals. There's nothing really wrong with the arrangements, but there can still be improvements on it.

Also, New Super Mario Bros is a great choice for game music! It's got some pretty interesting, yet underrated tunes. So, thanks for your contributions to that section!

You can read .mus files by downloading Finale Reader here.

Although if you want to be able to edit any sheets, you can download a free 30-day trial of Finale Notepad.

Ok, here's a few of my observations:

For both of your arrangements, there are some parts that could use harmonies. Measures 10 and 14 in your Map arrangement specifically. There are only a few parts (mostly the vocal parts) in "Walking the Plains." They're not really necessary, but it adds a little bit of extra depth to the arrangement.

I think that the synth vocal parts in "Walking the Plains" would probably sound better raised up an octave too.

In Measure 26 (and the other measure like that), the A should come on the 'and' of beat 2 instead of beat 3.

And last, starting from Measure 31, the right hand part of Piano 2 sounds a little off. I recognize the part you were trying to transcribe from the original and I think there's a few notes missing and a couple of incorrect rhythms.

Anyway, these are just suggestions so feel free to disagree with any of them.

I see what you mean... not entirely sure what to do about the percussion though, as it seems to be an integral part of the arrangement.

Not sure what you mean by "synth vocal"... sorry, I'm sort of new to finale  :-\

I'll get around to fixing these sometime... but I'm working on the world 3 map screen, which is problematic because of sound effects  :P

Sorry if I was confusing. I just meant the parts that sounded like a choir (or whatever) in the original song (they're usually G's in your arrangement I think). I just thought that they might sound better an octave higher.
Also, I wouldn't mind fixing the percussion part in Piano 2 if that's ok. I think I got the rhythms picked out, I'd just have to get the pitches figured out.

I'm working on the world 3 map screen
World 3 map sounds like a good piece for piano too! It's very relaxing. Good luck with it.

Go ahead and edit it if you like. :)

I'd like to check these out but I can't read .mus files.
Could you post the midis as well?
