This has been sitting in my files for some time, and every once in a while I open it, edit a couple notes, and close it again. I'm fully aware that it's sub-par, so if somebody would like to put their name in as a collaboration, I'm perfectly fine with that. Mostly, I just think the one on the site needs to go.

If this is the wrong way to go about this, let me know and I'll move to a new topic.

I was thinking of replacing it soon as well, so I'm willing to collaborate with you. I already have two versions of it, so we can combine one of them with yours if you'd like. If not then here's some advice:
  • I think some of the bass notes are wrong (particularly m45-50, but it might be on other spots as well)
  • While the song repeats with the bass playing, it starts off at the beginning again. Just letting you know
  • The song would benefit if you added percussion in the beginning
  • Some accents would be good too
  • There should be a crescendo from m45-52
  • The grace notes should have slurs
  • In m72, I don't think that should be a grace note

I made a mus where I updated the formatting as well as some small editing, mostly moving some chords up 1 octave, they sound to muddy that far down in the bass register.

Molte grazie. I may mess with formatting again.

  • I think some of the bass notes are wrong (particularly m45-50, but it might be on other spots as well)
It looks like Tobbeh fixed that. Thanks, again.
  • While the song repeats with the bass playing, it starts off at the beginning again. Just letting you know
I just listened to it again; it does not. The repeat goes back to when the bass is first introduced. Unless the video I provided does not accurately depict how the music is played in the game.
  • The song would benefit if you added percussion in the beginning
  • Some accents would be good too
  • There should be a crescendo from m45-52
  • The grace notes should have slurs
I never got around to cleaning up articulations and adding dynamics. Got some of it, still gotta add dynamic changes and claps.
  • In m72, I don't think that should be a grace note
There are a couple spots a 16th note might be more accurate. I've changed that one, and I'll scan through again at some point to change graces to 16ths.

I used a few of your chords and such. I haven't changed the left hand to eighth notes yet, but if it doesn't sound too muddled I probably will. I also might add your right hand second layer in to parts that feel empty. You're name has been added for collaboration. Double Z's. Tanks for halps.

Updated.

What I meant is that it repeats through the entire song with the bass. When it gets to around m25/26, it's different. The video you linked is different than the one I looked at (I originally had it repeat where the bass is introduced as well), so I left it the way it is for now. I'm not sure which one is more accurate. Here's the youtube video to show you what I mean:

I added some articulation and dynamics, but not much. I also left it as grace notes for now

Cool, thanks! I looked at it more and updated the files with some stuff
  • Added an expression, changed the stem direction of the grace notes, and added a grace note in m14 (and it's counterpart)
  • Added some clapping in the beginning
  • You were missing an F in m12 (beat 3), and I added a C in m71 (and of beat 3)
  • There were still some wrong notes in the left hand from m45-end, so I fixed the ones I could hear. As for the chords, I mostly left them the way they are for now
  • There might be some other stuff I'm forgetting

I'm reasonably certain that the F and C are nonexistant. Also, I'd trust GilvaSunner's rip concerning looping. The quality is also much better.

The F is there; the C is not.

The F is also in m34.

there's also a huge difference in quality between 2000 songs and 2010 songs
The difference between 2000 songs and 2010 songs is 10 songs.

Crap. I just uploaded the wrong sheets into this submission. Sorry.

EDIT: I had the PDF. That one's back.

My biggest concern here is in the nature of the arrangement itself. The transitions between sections are very jagged as a result of the methods used to incorporate various parts and combinations thereof. Try less to think of it as "flute + bass + uke = arrangement", and instead, deducing what the most salient features of those instruments are in order to form a fluid recreation of the work.

As Ben said the transitions sound very stiff and sudden. More specifically, the transitions: m. 26-27, 50-51, 58-59, 76 back to 27. Maybe have some chords (like the ukulele plays), when the long melody note fades out, to make it more smooth. Speaking of ukulele, I think you should incorporate more of that since it have such a big role in the song, if possible so to say.

I updated the file with the following changes:
  • Added pan flute part to m5-8
  • Added the guitar part to the right hand in m26
  • Added an F on beat 3 m34
  • Added the guitar part in m45-50 (this sounds out of place, however. Any suggestions are welcome), and replaced the bass part from m59-end
  • Added an ending so that it doesn't end abruptly

Thanks for the advice! It sounds more fluid imo

measure 49-50, remove the accompaniment G's. That way you're indicating that the high should be held but the lower accompaniment notes should be played. Rather than now when you won't hear the G being held since the accompaniment notes play just after it is struck.
