Thank you!

I've also opened up this up for you to place the updated files into. Reason for just the musicxml instead of a .mus: I use Musescore since Finale doesn't support Linux (and other personal reasons)

When I went to convert files, I noticed a few things that were off about the arrangement itself:


* m1-20 there are a few problems with how you wrote this part:
   - you wrote the tempo as a quarter note, but in cut time it should be written as a half note
   - this part is felt as slower, so 4/4 at half the tempo and note durations would work better; notice how when it's halved, each bass note fits perfectly in one measure instead of two
   - then you can put quarter = 120 at the spot where m21 would be accordingly
* m9 (before tempo change) the quarter rest should be visible (and lowered to match the position the layer is in). In m8 it's okay if the half rest is hidden because there's context providing that info, but that doesn't exist in m9
* m11-12 your layering choices and beaming could be a little better as you mixed up some of the voicings with each other. For example, the entire second layer should be the same as the pattern in m3-4, but you wrote out some of the notes in the first layer (i.e. beat 3 of m11, and beat 1/3 of m12). The D on beat 3 of m11 should go in the first layer too. once those are properly rearranged, you could then flip the stems of the first layer so that they all point upwards
* m13-14 you can get rid of the tie on the Ab of the first layer (and the subsequent note in m14) because the second layer plays that same note afterwards
* m16 RH beat 3 missing Bb on top; the LH could play the G here
* m17-20 there are intervals here that are impossible to play with one hand. Fortunately the LH can actually play the lower RH notes. As such, you could either split the stems or use a bracket to separate those notes from the other parts of the chords, or you could write the lower RH notes in the LH staff as a different layer (for now I just split the stems, but if you'd like it to be changed then someone can edit that when there's more feedback
* m17 beat 3 Ab and G should swap octaves, so the chord from top to bottom should be C-G-C-Ab; this also doesn't last that long and should be shortened
* m19 low C should be Bb
* m19/20 missing F in both chords
* m28 LH beat 3 should be lowered an octave; also I think it would be appropriate to split the beam in the RH between beat 3-4, but that's up to you
Finally, I'm not sure if forte is appropriate for the speed of the song (ik that the soundfont makes it pretty loud though). Maybe you could write mf until the tempo change, and put f there if you wanted to. I didn't do anything about that though

This is what the updated version looks like, so do try to replicate that on MuseScore as best you can!
