Just popping in to say Requiem looks really nice.  It's always great when something goes onto the piano way better than you're expecting it to.  Also more FF stuff is always appreciated!

Thanks, Libera! I always appreciate you coming into my PA to comment on my sheets :)



Even submission sheets gotta come here sometimeā„¢ ~

[SNES] Kirby Super Star - "Gladiator Kirby"

[TOPIC]

I'll keep this short: I'm really satisfied with how this sheet turned out. I remember starting an earlier draft at least 5 years ago, before I joined this site, but it didn't get very far. But I am glad I could bring it to the site now, and I'd like to thank all those who have helped me improve it so far. Enjoy!

[NES] Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse - "Beginning"

[ZIP]


Today, I present to you one of my more "toughie" sheets. I actually started the first, unshared draft of this back in August, but playability, accidental spelling and overall accuracy concerns prevented me from finishing this. Now, I have it pretty much the way I want it, but I'm still open to suggestions, because there's a few extra notes I added in to make up for some impractical rhythms. Enjoy, because if I get to feeling good enough about this one, it's going to the submissions board.

LeviR.star's Arrangements - [NES] Dragon Quest - 3 New Sheets
« Reply #138 on: March 16, 2019, 03:45:01 AM »

... yea, you already know why.

Here's a game from a franchise I've finally taken on: Dragon Quest! These sheets are a little old (up to about a month or two), but I finally had time to post them tonight.

[NES] Dragon Quest

226th

People [ZIP]


Simple enough piece. Glad this one worked so well, especially with the LH stave-crossing.

227th

Dragon Lord [ZIP]


Picking out pitches was a little tricky here; the accidental spelling was a massacre. Thanks to Libera for the help!

228th

Fight [ZIP]


Accidentals were (slightly) easier on this one. But I went out of my way to make that battle intro happen, so y'all better appreciate it.



Before I conclude, I should mention a few things that have been keeping me for the past few months (some of which still are):

- Large Group Speech (our 8-person ensemble made it to All-State as performers)
- I've been cast as the lead in our spring play, Our Town, and still have my 16 hours/week of Set Construction work to attend to
- the Solo & Ensemble contest, which our school is hosting, preparation (10 songs -- 2 saxophone and 8 vocal, the latter of which need to be memorized)
- Regional Individual Speech contest, which happened Wednesday and now we're waiting for the All-Staters to be announced
- general high school senior things

But I'm happy the updaters didn't give up on me during my undeclared hiatus. Thanks, guys!

Here's to hopes that Erdrick (and Ryu Hayabusa!) find themselves beyond a leak and into the Smash universe! Enjoy!

Yay more Dragon Warrior/Quest music!!

Maybe this is just me but I'd probably just play those thirds in the right hand and leave the left hand out on those beats so I don't have to make those large leaps. I'm not an amazing piano player though so that's just my unqualified opinion :)

Accidentals were (slightly) easier on this one. But I went out of my way to make that battle intro happen, so y'all better appreciate it.
I think many would agree that the battle theme just doesn't feel right without that intro so good call!

My only comment on this arrangement is that it might be easier to read if the eighth notes in the left hand (starting at measure 3) were separated into beats instead of being beamed all together--something about seeing three eighth notes beamed together in 4/4 is a little jarring for me. But I'm not sure if that's an actual rule or just my personal preference, and it's a pretty minor complaint.

Anyways good job on these three sheets, and since this is my first time in your thread I also want to say congrats on all the successful arrangements you've made thus far!!

Just popping my head in to say that I do agree with this and I tend to do that in whatever I write these days. There are a number of times when I've given music to students that has beaming like this and it leads to unnecessary confusion. Unfortunately it's a default setting to beam them together but I think it can be changed (or you can just break them manually).

Oh hey some feedback :o

Y'know, you're right. I'll admit that I've been experimenting lately with stave-crossing, but it's pretty unnecessary here, I should say. I watched a lady in this performance use the technique, but her RH takes over quickly enough for the LH to make it back, so I should just go with your suggestion. Thank you for pointing that out.

My only comment on this arrangement is that it might be easier to read if the eighth notes in the left hand (starting at measure 3) were separated into beats instead of being beamed all together--something about seeing three eighth notes beamed together in 4/4 is a little jarring for me. But I'm not sure if that's an actual rule or just my personal preference, and it's a pretty minor complaint.

I wouldn't know enough theory to give you honest thoughts about beaming in that case, but what if I were to change the third LH 8th note in each measure to a quarter? That might solve the problem, and even if the MIDI will sound different, that won't matter.

Gonna update these sheets as soon as I can.

Hey, thanks so much! That really means a lot to me. Welcome to NSM :D

Oh hey, Deku! Glad to see you popped in last minute here. Do you approve of the quarter note idea?

I think it could be done either way. Using a quarter note is a more conventional rhythm and as the arranger you could choose to write it that way to make it more familiar to anyone reading it and leave the interpretation up to the performer. But if your intention is to replicate the sound of the original as closely as possible, with each note being of equal length, then you might choose to keep it as eighth notes (though I'd still suggest breaking the beams into beats for readability). It's entirely in your creative license as arranger to do it whichever way suits your goal for the arrangement!
