Glad I could help. Honestly, I just picked this song because I thought it'd be funny to arrange. And it was.

Maelstrom

Xenoblade Chronicles
Mechanical Rhythm
[midi] [.mus] [.musx] [PDF]

With this, I (or others) have arranged all my favorite major songs from Xenoblade Chronicles. This may be the end of me arranging from my 2nd favorite OST, but it's certainly been a great run.

Despite never playing this game, I have loved this song for 5 or 6 years so it's great to finally make a sheet of it.

Astral Chain
Jena Anderson

Also known as the reveal trailer song.

The first of my weekly arrangements! I probably should stop arranging metal-related songs if I want to make some playable sheets....

Maelstrom

Super Mario 3D World
Bowser's Highway Showdown
[midi] [.mus] [.musx] [PDF] [Original]

Continuing the trend of metal-inspired arrangements. Next week will break that trend. The song in question is entirely piano, and from a game I've never arranged from before.

I checked out Jena Anderson and Bowser's Highway Showdown and they both sound nice, good job :3

Here's some feedback for Bowser's Highway Showdown if you'd like:
  • m1 RH there are A's playing instead of the B and D that you put
  • m2 RH first chord sounds like it also has a G and B (and maybe an A on the bottom but that would have to be played with the LH or taken out anyways); second chord sounds like Cn-Eb-Fn-Ab instead of D-Fn-Ab
  • m7/15 RH missing tie before beat 2?
  • m15/16 RH low Db should be F
  • m17/18 RH missing Ab in the chord
  • m19/20 RH G should be En; personally I think it sounds better without the 3rd in the RH and if you wanted to then you could add a Bb here too, but you can still leave the G there if you wish
  • m20/22/24 LH beat 4 sounds like F-Fb instead of Fb-Eb
  • m21/23 RH there is some dissonance there with some Gb's below the Ab's (and the chord at beat 3.25 should be F-Gn-C instead of Gb-C since it goes down by a half step)
  • m22/24 RH likewise there is dissonance here too with Ab's below the Bb's (then Gn under An and Dn)
  • m25 RH beat 3.25 the Gb should be a Gn here too
  • m25-26 RH you could add the Eb's and F's here respectively, but just up an octave so it can actually be played. If you don't like the sound here then that's okay too
  • m26 LH you could add the synth arpeggio on beat 4 to lead into m27
  • m27-29 I think it would be more interesting if you wrote out the arpeggios in the RH and had the LH do power chords, but it's fine if you want to leave it as is. If so, then why leave measure 29 blank in the RH?

Overall it was just missing some harmonies, some of which aren't required, and there were a few wrong notes

I'll be sure to get to that. Eventually.

Next week is a touhou song. I'll also post the remix that inspired me to arrange the song.

And the remix that convinced me to arrange it:

Next week: A song I've wanted to arrange ever since I started arranging, but never had the skill to pull off until now.

Well, it's been 6 years since I fell in love with this song and it's only now that I've finally arranged it. I'm pretty satisfied with how it turned out.
This song was indirectly chosen by Libera.

While this song is technically done, I want to take the time to polish it more. Enjoy this in the meantime:

Radiant Historia
Mechanical Kingdom

I love the Radiant Historia OST and did a few songs for rainy days, like today.

Next week: something spooky?
