I'm writing this with tears in my eyes. Your Rainbow Road theme sounds awesome. Thank you so much for doing it. Though, I guess I'll shorten the breaks when I play it, but I'll definitely print and play this when you get the .mus up. Great job.

The Winning Results theme is also great as "background music". I have a feeling that it's a song that is fun to play, even if nobody's listening.

Koopa Troopa beach sounds great, but do you think you're able to "compress" it a little? The last page only has two measures on it, if you manage to squeeze those into page 2, players won't have to print an extra page for the sake of only two measures.

Great job! Can't wait to see the Rainbow Road sheet!

Thanks for your compliments Cobra. I added a few more .mus files (including Rainbow Road) and fixed up the formatting for Koopa Troopa Beach.

Title: Re: Deku Trombonist's Arrangements
Post by: Cobraroll on August 29, 2009, 09:40:08 PM
Rainbow road was great, almost spot on, but I think there's one small thing that could be done better. Put some 8va in the bass, please, I saw you had used it in the main melody, but in places, the bass goes very high as well.
Just consider it, at least.

And yeah, awesome pieces, all of them.

Last, I see that you have done a fair bit of the MK64 themes. Have you considered Prize Ceremony as well? Just a question, or a badly concealed request. Up to you to decide :p
Title: Re: Deku Trombonist's Arrangements
Post by: WiiMan96 on August 29, 2009, 10:15:35 PM
Shy Guy's Toybox is very good. The only thing I could say would improve it is changing the left hand's clef to bass 8? Those notes do look ugly and are hard to read so far below the stave. :P

Good work so far, and I can't wait to see more from you! :D
Title: Re: Deku Trombonist's Arrangements
Post by: MaestroUGC on August 30, 2009, 01:30:25 AM
Your arrangements are pretty good, but some of them need to be cleaned up to look more aesthetically pleasing. Other than that you show some great talent and ability.
Title: Re: Deku Trombonist's Arrangements
Post by: Deku Trombonist on August 31, 2009, 12:44:14 PM
Thanks for all the postive comments  :)

I added Witchyworld and Toad's Turnpike but I'm not sure what to do with the opening 8 bars of Toad's Turnpike.
I think Witchyworld could do with a key signature but I'm not sure wha to do with it. Can someone give me a hand?
Title: Re: Deku Trombonist's Arrangements
Post by: Cobraroll on August 31, 2009, 01:16:51 PM
Prize #1 is great, but I felt that there was something missing. Listen at 0:14 in this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVfg9k6N3cI

Or measure 7 in your piece. I don't know what the trumpet fanfare would sound like on piano, but why did you omit it?

Great job other than that. Also, kudos for not making the part after the initial fanfare as frustratingly long as in the original  ;). I'll still play it that way, though.
Title: Re: Deku Trombonist's Arrangements
Post by: Deku Trombonist on August 31, 2009, 01:47:52 PM
Whoops...Must have missed that one lol. I've added the trumpet fanfare now - thanks for picking that one up  ;)

I actually don't think Witchyworld needs a key signature. Sure, it has some weird modulations, but it always comes back to a minor.
Title: Re: Deku Trombonist's Arrangements
Post by: ALPRAS on September 04, 2009, 06:46:11 PM
Hi there!
I like very much your Rainbow road arrangement!
Just one thing: In the the L.H., the 1st 20 measures where you've putted the 8va thing, instead of putting it, just switch the F clef to the G clef. Itll be more easier to read :)

Title: Re: Deku Trombonist's Arrangements
Post by: Cobraroll on September 08, 2009, 07:52:59 PM
Your arrangements are great, but I think Click Clock Woods needs a little love:
 - The start of the arrangement might as well be put in 15ma (all the way to measure 26). By the way, the very top notes go beyond the limits of the piano at times.
 - Around measure 26-42, you need three arms to play the piece.
 - The bass near the end should be in 8va

Just minor details, it's a very good arrangement. I'm looking forward to see MKWii's Rainbow Road as well.

Post by: CH Winter on September 12, 2009, 04:31:41 AM
Am I the only person on here who keeps getting incompatible format? I have finale notepad 2008 and I thought that should be good enough, but maybe not. I got super excited when I saw the Mario Kart 64 stuff because it is so underrepresented on this site. I'm totally going to learn it as soon as I can open the file.
Title: Re: Deku Trombonist's Arrangements
Post by: WiiMan96 on September 12, 2009, 04:47:54 AM
Deku arranges with a 2009 version of Finale, so you'll have to download Finale Reader here (http://www.finalemusic.com/reader) to read them. :)
Title: Re: Deku Trombonist's Arrangements
Post by: Deku Trombonist on September 13, 2009, 08:13:23 AM
I added Dark Hollow from the first Spyro.
It's my first two-piano arrangement so it'd be cool to see what you think.

And I also fixed up some of the isues with Click Clock Wood(winter) but I'm not sure that Printmusic can do 15ma lines.
Title: Re: Deku Trombonist's Arrangements

You have Spyro music. Therefore, I love you. ;D

Pokémon R/B/Y's End Theme sounds fantastic. I'm a big fan of the Pokémon series, and really appreciate that you take the time to arrange its music. Well done.

Same goes for National Park. While Finale makes most music sound  alittle "flat", I think this would be really calm and soothing when played on a real piano. Thanks a lot for arranging!

Also, I can hardly wait for MKWii's Rainbow Road!

Post by: Deku Trombonist on September 21, 2009, 10:01:21 PM
Rainbow Road's taking a little while...it's probably the most difficult thing I've tried to arrange. But I'll try and focus on that this week.

I'm not sure if anyone's noticed, but I try to put a new arrangement up every couple of days (I have no life  :P ) - I'll edit the title when I put up something new.

[WII] Mario Kart Wii

Here's what I've done of Rainbow Road so far. It needs more done to it but I can't work it out, so can somebody give me a hand?

Title: Re: Deku Trombonist - (Added Final Destination[SSBB] 29 Sept)
Post by: Cobraroll on September 29, 2009, 12:43:55 PM
Well, one thing I can certainly say for Rainbow Road (Wii): In the original, you hear a flute part near the beginning. This repeats, while the bass changes to the crescendo of the Good Egg Galaxy theme from Super Mario Galaxy. In the .mp3, the bass makes it hard to even hear the main melody, but in your sheet, it's not even reminiscent of Good Egg. Is there a way to change this?
Title: Re: Deku Trombonist - (Added Final Destination[SSBB] 29 Sept)
Post by: Deku Trombonist on September 30, 2009, 10:00:34 AM
I made a some changes to Rainbow Road (MK WII) and changed some small bits in Final Destination.
Rainbow Road's still not great, but it's better. Thanks Cobra.

universe-X: Sure, you can PM me but do whichever is more convenient for you

olimar12345: That was only the second arrangement I did by ear so that's probably why it's odd and I'll get to fixing the title right away. I'm looking forward to see what you come up with  :D

Just noticed that you did Banjo Kazooie Overture. Nice. At first I thought some of the triplet quarter-eights would be better as double-dotted quarter sixteenth, but then I realized that that was just because I was hearing it on Finale and not in real life.
Title: Re: Deku Trombonist - (Added 4 Songs[Animal Crossing & Mario Kart 64] 17 Oct)
Post by: Cobraroll on October 17, 2009, 09:24:21 PM
You removed Rainbow Road 2 hands? Well, I can see why, but I'm still glad I printed it before you did. The two-hand version was a page shorter, so I don't need to rearrange pages all the time (can only fit 3 at the time on my piano without extensive use of Gaffa tape)

Title Screen (MK64) - I see you've shrunk the arrangement so it doesn't take as much space. Still, the last page is only a single line, so I think you should expand it a little to improve readability.

For some reason, I can't open Choco Mountain. The download never starts, then it times out.

Break the Targets is a brilliant arrangement. I don't know how it compares to the SSBM version in terms of diffculty, but it's probably not that far behind (check it out). They're even in awesomeness, though.

You're doing great with your other arrangements as well. But could you somehow point out to readers your last arrangements? Like posting
"NEW!!" after the new arrangements or something?

Seeker: I'm glad that you like the Banjo Overture   :D - took me almost a whole Sunday to transcribe but I had heaps of fun arranging it.

Cobraroll: I can put up the two hand version of that (and Koopa Troopa Beach) again if you want me to  :)

I fixed the other stuff that needed fixing. I think Mediafire just got hated at Choco Mountain because I had the same problem :P .

Mario Kart 64 Title Screen was kind of an experiment with the resize tool. I'd never even seen it before yesterday lol.

And thankyou sooooo much. The new tag's a great idea. I can't believe I didn't think of that earlier. I'll start adding those now.

The Victory themes are cool. Do you plan on doing more of them?

I haven't really played Animal Crossing, so I can't comment on those songs.
What's next from you, by the way?
Title: Re: Deku Trombonist - (Added Able Sisters (Replacement) [Animal Crossing] 25 Oct)
Post by: Deku Trombonist on October 29, 2009, 09:10:30 PM
I'm pretty much out of ideas of what to arrange so I've just been filling requests and doing new versions of some of the more inaccurate sheets on the site (starting with the Animal Crossing section).

This week I've been working on Native Faith from Touhou Mountain of Faith. It's taking a long time though thanks to all the insane semiquaver runs but I'll hopefully have it done by the end of the weekend. To take a break though, I'll do the Slateport City arrangement for you.

I wasn't planning on doing more victory themes from SSBB but I could do some more. I'll take a look through the soundtrack tonight and see what's good.

Remember the "fulfilling the requests"-topic as well. Post there and claim the poins you deserve, in case WiiMan hasn't updated it yet. Or look there for ideas of more to arrange.

Well done.

Post by: KefkaticFanatic on November 17, 2009, 02:08:49 AM
You know what I think about Native Faith, so yeah.

Witchyworld: Good, but the main first melody part (fuck forgot what you call the sections) shouldn't have rests, and should be played with a bit of a swing to it.  It's supposed to be a haunted waltz of sorts.  Not entirely sure how you can put that into the arrangement, but currently it doesn't seem correct.

Chilly Willy + Chilli Billi: Mostly awesome, but the arpeggios and such on page 5 are lol.  Nobody can play that, please make that reasonable.

Title: Re: Deku Trombonist - (Added Outset Island (Duet) [LoZ: Wind Waker] 6 Nov)
Post by: Deku Trombonist on November 17, 2009, 02:51:04 AM
I know my Witchyworld arrangement sounds a bit boring that's probably why I resigned it to the shelf as soon as I finished it, but I'll take a look at it later and see what I can do.
Are you only talking about the opening melody bit (measures 9-24) or the second part as well (measures 25-40)?

As for Chilly Willy/Chilli Billi, I'm reasonably ok at transcribing but I'm not so good at arranging. So aside from changing the arpeggios into normal semiquavers and therefore reducing them to only 2 octaves, I don't know what else I can do.

I'll fix them (including Native faith) up when I get home.

Dammit, your Banjo Overture is awesome except it also has the same arpeggio issue.

Post by: Deku Trombonist on November 18, 2009, 10:13:39 AM
I simplified those arpeggios in both Banjo Overture and Chilly Willy/Chilli Billi Battle.

I tried to fix up Witchyworld a bit but I think I'm going to have to go back to the old drawing board after exams finish next week.

And I simplified the semiquaver chord bits in Native Faith.

I put all of these revisions up, so tell me what you think. Do they still need more simplifying/improving?

Post by: Cobraroll on November 20, 2009, 10:07:01 PM
I've looked a bit at your replacements:

WindWaker Title needs 8va. A lot of it. And if possible, could you shrink it so that we don't get that nasty one-liner on the last page? I don't like having to have an extra sheet just for three measures. Other than that, fantastic arrangement.

Kalimari Desert is great, but somewhere in it, I see E sharps. Why? Why just not write F?

More later.

Post by: Deku Trombonist on November 23, 2009, 11:34:02 AM
I added the 8vas and I shrank the Wind Waker Title Theme but I'm not sure where the E#'s are in Kalimari Desert. Now, I could be blind and might've just missed the obvious but where are the E#'s?

Post by: KefkaticFanatic on November 24, 2009, 12:28:40 AM
Ok, so the low note in the bass of Witchyworld is just a quarter note that you lift, not a dotted half note.  You just hold it until the next chord in which you are going to lift and play semi-staccato, like any waltz would sound.

Sorry to bump your topic lately, but I've had a song on my mind for a few days now, and wanted to see if I could find sheets for it. I'm talking about the Pollyanna theme from Mother.

Well, I saw your arrangement, but the end of it made me wonder a little. What version of the song did you base the arrangement on? Measure 21-24 all go the same way, but in every version I've heard, it takes a little break midway through what would be your arrangement's measure 22.
(as hear around the 0:53 mark here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4Fc2H7jvQM&feature=related
or around 0:42 here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TaPXShP9D0Y
And also in versions here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmA5bGv6FSQ&feature=related
and here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_emzi7gKen0)

Sorry to be picky, but I really like this song, really want to play it, and wonder which version is correct.

I haven't been able to reply because I've been on a Jazz Camp for the past week  :D.

Anyway, I fixed up the Pollyanna arrangement a bit. By the way, I mainly used this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTauatC6_Zk&feature=related) to arrange the song as per the request thread (http://www.ninsheetm.us/smf/index.php?topic=1834.0).

P.S : Sorry to keep you waiting Universe, I'll try to get the other half of Beach Bowl Galaxy done soon. School starts in 2 days and that seems to be the time when I get the most arrangements done instead of doing homework :P.

metroid/bkfan: I've never played any Metroid games properly so it's kinda unlikely that I'll arrange something from the series and unless somebody requests a particular song.

^^hehe, no probs! :D Glad to see you're still alive, and I'm looking forward to Beach Bowl! Should be awesome! :D

Also, I'm doing some work on Mario Paint, and it looks like I'm using your version of Final Destination from Brawl as my next song! Hope you don't mind and expect the final versionin the next week or so. ;)

That's better. Wonderful, actually.

*prints, sits down by the piano and plays happily*

The song was good to begin with, can't deny that, but with that little issue cleared, it sounds better (I've had the lyrics stuck in my head for months now, and when I hear it and the melody doesn't match, it drives me nuts).

Great work!

I got there eventually... (sorry universe)

[WII] Super Mario Galaxy

metroid/bkfan: To me, the Space Pirate Battle Theme doesn't sound as though it would translate into piano that well. However, if you really want me to do it, I could give it a shot and see where it ends up.

universe-X: It might not be as epic, but it's got your own style in it, and that's good too! I think it would be cool if you stuck with the 8-bit theme a bit longer than just the intro (maybe for the first chorus?), or made an entire 8-bit remix.
Title: Re: Deku Trombonist - (Added Beach Bowl Galaxy[Super Mario Galaxy] 31 Jan)
Post by: universe-X on January 31, 2010, 03:48:24 AM
The 8-bit sounds were just a replacement for that little string section, and I added it as a deeper vocal with higher vocals in the chorus (right after the 8-bit part). I suppose I could do an 8-bit remix, but you wouldn't believe how much of a headache the 8-bit sounds were giving me while I was adding them in. So, maybe another day. Plus, in this soundfont, the 8-bit sounds stretch across 2 octaves from middle C. That's it. I'm glad you liked it, though!

As for Beach Bowl, I can't believe how fast you got it done, plus the accuracy! This as amazing, you really caught the mood of the song (this is coming from a guy who's only heard 3 other arrangements of yours). You really did the song justice here. Love it. I might just do a Mario Paint of this too. Just maybe... ;) I'm gonna finish the SSBB Main Theme first, though. What do you think?

I'm not very familiar with Pokemon arrangements, however, so if you're gonna give me a song from there, it would be a good place for me to start Pokemon arrangements! :D

I must say, Beach Bowl sounds really great!! well done!

except, one thing i think would be better: in measures 24 and 32, on the right hand, instead of having those two eigth notes, change them into a dotted eigth and a sixteenth. (so the sixteenth is still tied to the quarter).
it's just my opinion, but thats the only thing i noticed that could be fixed.. because, otherwise great job! :)

Great work on including the famous "Loop 65" of Results #1! I had a laugh after I accidentally found the track on YouTube, and had to check your arrangement. Awesome!

Yes, but on the soundtrack it plays after only 2 loops of the A section. ;) As for being a fan, I justed started on my 3 favourites and then momentum took hold and I ended up doing most of the soundtrack.


On a side note, I'm getting back into doing replacements thing again so check back once in a while to find some new stuff.

Hmm... you might want to look through SMB2 Overworld once more. The repeat makes no sense.
Also, what is wrong with the one we already have on site? The same goes for the SMB Overworld theme. Your versions are good, but so are the ones we have, I'd say.

The other ones from SMB1/2 on site, however, desperately need attention. And you gave them that, and more. I've listened through them all (five in total), and you've done a marvellous job on them. Overworlds are good too, but I think the versions already on site are sufficent. But that's just my opinion, others might mean differently.

Thank's once again Brassman  :D.

As for the Mario stuff, I didn't really look at the arrangements on the site that closely before I started, but I did notice that on the site's SMB1 Overworld arrangement, the left hand is an octave to low. And as for the SMB2 Overworld, the unecessary L.H. octaves kinda put me off that one. But if you'd like me to just fix the formatting and leave the original arrangement as it is, I can do that too.

And thanks for picking up on the repeat error, I forgot to put the opening repeat in  :-[

Perfect. Now could you please do something about the Overworld from SMB3? First of all, it sounds really boring to listen to. I'm pretty sure something can be done about this. Second, some of the notes from 16-17 are supposed to be in different octaves. Third... the MUS has some plucking bass playing in the bass part (wtf). And finally, the arrangement is by DoKoCo, but is put under G-Han's name (unless they're the same person, of course).

But, really, the song definitely can be more exciting without percussion. I know you can do it TDT ;)

I've tried my best with Rainbow Road. Not sure what to think of it.

Deku, you don't need such big chords to get the point across of what kind of chord it is. Keep that in mind. I try to limit myself to at least a triad. Unless of course it's a 7th or something obscure like a "dim5thadd9". Anything over that and it gets tiring.

I was just wondering, is it acceptable/ok to do what I've done here with your update of the Athletic sheet (mainly measures 13-15 & 20)? I did some browsing through my mum's piano books and found similar kind of set outs used regularly.

Is there any possible way to fix the left hand in measure 14 of Clanker's Cavern so that it doesn't look like D-double flat?

For a crap sell out game, Pokemon TCG had some really good music in it. Imakuni among others. Very catchy tunes.
I remember loving TCG as a kid.  I might have to try it out again with the ol' GBA.  Imakuni freaked me out then, but if he ever made a cameo in another Pokemon game, I would freak out in a good way.  I think he needs to show up somewhere.

As for Clanker's Cavern, I don't really think there are any ways to solve that problem.  My suggestion would be to just omit the note in the second layer, but then again the note underneath is a different length.  I guess worst case, just put a note there indicating it's not a double flat, etc.

Have you removed links to all songs that were uploaded to the site? That would free a lot of space.

If you already have, I could delete my first reply to this topic. That way, you would have two consecutive posts at the beginning, and could move all the replacements over there.

I had nice red "New" tags but they had to go when I started running out of characters. I guess I could do that again. Or perhaps I could put a new section up the top for arrangements that have been there less than a week.

And...err...Dusty Dune...oops. I'll get back to it after I finish the opening title from Secret of Mana.

Deku, any chance of ever doing a revision of Link's Awakening: overworld? It sounds accurate on the site but pretty bland and lacking of passion for the most part, and because I personally like how straight-to-the-score your arrangements always sound.


Edit* Apparently there isn't even one on the site for the overworld, all the more incentive?

In the pikmin 2 Wistful Wild, measures 1-15 modulate based on half steps every measure. However, 16-end is in C minor. Eb, Ab, and Bb, though some/most of the time, the B will be natural.
Ir's only a key change for the last page though. Sorry there's nothing more.

Some of those chords from 9-11 in the right hand feel like they can be improved a little. And are there any impossible chords in the left hand in the later part of the song...?

I kind of like it. But that's just me.
I don't like one thing - but I'm not sure if there's anything I can suggest for it. There's a lack of left hand at the amazing/heart-wrenching section. But maybe it sounds better that way. Don't kill me.

Hahaha, sorry.

What I mean is:

Elaborate and make it for two pianos. The original song has way too much going on for just one piano. Not sure how good it will sound. Considering it might sound like mush. Good arranging should fix that problem.

Ah, I see. I thought you were deciding whether to call the piece "Epilogue" or "Credits". My mistake.

The song sounds nice, not much you can do with just one piano though. But, for some odd reason, I feel like you left parts out. Not sure why that is. I might just have to listen to the piece again.

Overall. Good job, mate.

Actually my original question was different altogether :P. Basically, the track name in the OST is called "Ending" and it includes the Epilogue and the Credits. I was wondering whether I should split it into the two seperate sheets or leave it as one 8 page epic.

But you raise a good point about the two pianos thing. I might go and do that now, cool idea!

And yes, I did kinda leave parts out or try and move octaves around a little to make it work for one piano.

@DekuTrombonist--This is a little late, but I don't think you'll mind as you're getting praised! :D

I finally got around to playing your Fluffy Bluff arrangement! It's fantastic! I had shoved it aside when you first submitted it because although I wanted to play it, I had other things on my plate. However, I recently remembered it, and I think it's a really great arrangement of an epic song. Little or no playability problems (something unfortunately rare here).

It was fantastic and I hope you arrange more soon! :D

I am pretty sure it was yours, but it's not on your submission page, so I can't be sure.

I am not especially happy with Olimar's arrangement of Sky Station... You did fantastically at Fluffy Bluff, so do you think there's any chance you would do a replacement/revision?

Woah...2 requests. Anyway, I've got trial exams coming up this week so no arranging from me for at least this week. Then after that, I want to finish off everything from A Link To The Past. And after all that...I'm actually kind reluctant to commit to taking requests on at the moment seeing as there's a bunch (including SMG2 credits...) which I still haven't finished and I keep getting sidetracked. But I may change my mind after trials are over.

I'll leave it at "I'll get back to you on those 2".

Well I've pretty much only got two things to do - school, and trombone practice (which is starting to take up an increasingly large amount of time). And school doesn't really take up that much time, although from what I gather, that's probably because the education system is fairly lax here in SA.

I missed the little tunes from BK and BT here on MSN, finally there's someone who arranges them! But there are two things that bother me a bit (how often did I say this now?!): Would you mind throwing the fanfares altogether in one file, I think that the piano player would be annoyed to have a couple of pieces of paper with just two measures on them, don't you think so, too? The second one: In the "Bridge to Grunty's Lair" theme, there are some tremolos, could you exchange them with "Easy Tromolo" signs from the TG Plug-Ins?
Title: Re: The Deku Trombonist - (Added 8 Songs[Banjo Kazooie] 11 September)
Post by: Deku Trombonist on September 11, 2010, 11:11:27 PM
OOOO...Tremolos. I've never known how to input those, thanks. I'll do some experimenting with it now.

As for all the fanfares, I will probably end up putting them into one but not until I've finished the rest of the small fanfares & collect themes (which just may happen today...you never know ;)).


EDIT: How do make tremolos play back at 6 to a beat. Having a two-beam tremolo makes it play at 4 to a beat(dotted semiquavers) when there should be 6 because it's in 12/8.

How I love that aquatic and cave (or clanker) variations of the level themes. Do you know that statement of Kazooie in BT where the trouble theme is played and she says something like: "I don't like that music!" It always making me laugh! :D But The Salty Hippo theme is almost identical to the normal theme, except for the orchestration which you can't hear in a piano arrangement... While we are at Treasure Trove Cove: Kirkhope uploaded the beta version of the Treasure Trove Cove theme, which was intended to be used, but was changed because it didn't fit. Could you think about arranging it? I'm asking you because your recent uploads were from BK and your arraging by ear skills seems to be great. ;)

If you're going to go back on the Fixing the Sheets Project, maybe you could keep up on the Grant Kirkhope spree and work on Donkey Kong 64 (and the Donkey Kong Country games too). Mostly the problems just lie with formatting, but there are some missed notes as well. There are also a couple levels that don't have arrangements (Hideout Helm and Jungle Japes). Otherwise, I'd love to see the Paper Mario 2 sheets patched up as I those songs are fantastic. And weren't you working on Dusty Dune Galaxy earlier in your thread?

Yeah I guess I could go back to Banjo. It's just that for some reason I tire of working on Banjo songs really easily, not sure why though. I started on a couple of Star Fox arrangements because a friend suggested that there aren't too many in the Star Fox section to fix up.

Oh...Dusty Dune Galaxy....shit. I keep forgetting what I've been working on and haven't finished. I tend to move between things pretty quickly and what isn't done seems to get left behind. I guess I should be able to finish that one today.

You're the arranger, go ahead and do the songs you want! I don't really recognize many tunes from Star Fox, but I'm sure many others would love some arrangements. There aren't many on the site so it would be good to bolster it some with some new, quality sheets and it wouldn't take too long to fix the ones already there. And thanks for finishing Dusty Dune! Super Mario Galaxy has fantastic music so we shouldn't leave any song unarranged. Also, despite the mistakes, that's a pretty solid duet Olimar!

Having said that, it is a fairly awesome tune. It's just that I've said that I was going to a bunch of things (eg. Dusty Dune, SMG2 End Credits & other requests) which I feel that I should probably finish before agreeing to take on anything new.

Sorry no one replied to Atlantis, it was definitely good! As far as Super Metroid goes, you probably should add the extra measures. As far as I can tell all it would take is copy/pasting of existing measures to organize everything to match the video. Also, shouldn't measure 18 have an E flat on beat 3 in the left hand?

Why did you upload another arrangement of Cauldron Keep?  Nothing is different besides the staccato spam.  If anything you should only show the staccato for a measure or two since it just repeats.  Though it didn't need staccato since it's obvious if you know the song.

If it'll motivate you, know that you're an extremely talented and prolific arranger. The fact that you get so much done and that it's accurate is really impressive! But maybe that means you deserve a break for a while too...Whatever you decide.

Sorry Brassman! You might be surprised on the multitude of classic games I've missed. But that might be because I didn't get involved with gaming until about halfway through the 64's lifecycle anyway. I know a lot more now than I did back then.

I'll agree that the music is pretty epic in Star Fox, especially in the original! I'm glad I'm able to get exposed to all this great stuff even if I've never experienced it in context, but the best music is usually the stuff that can stand on its own as well as fit in a game's background.

Concerning Petalburg: It's E flat major, please change that, then it's fine!

Concerning Dusty Dune Galaxy: WHOA. NELLY. Do anyone know how to apply a non-linear key signature? As this piece is in the style of a raga, and indian music tend to be... unusual, we need a key sig. that isn't in the circle of fifths. From m. 1-36 we need just a g# key and from m. 37-52, we need a c# and a# key. In m. 53-60 it's c major.

To the critics: Please don't say "let's just keep it in c major, that non-linear key sig. thing isn't necessary/is to hard". I'd really like to see it with the non-linear key sigs imo.

Post by: Sekter77 on September 30, 2010, 09:25:31 PM
I do have a couple of suggestions for Petalburg. In the last two measures, there is another bass part if you want to add more notes so it's not just the left hand playing. Also, in measure 16, could you make that last Ab an octave higher? And as a final suggestion, maybe you should double all the note counts as well as the tempo. For some reason I always counted those sixteenth notes (semiquavers?) as eighth notes (quavers? I want to make sure I have the terminology down). Of course, these are just my opinions so if you're happy with the arrangement then by all means keep it! I won't complain.
Title: Re: The Deku Trombonist - (Added 3 Songs [Multiple Games] 30 September)
Post by: Deku Trombonist on September 30, 2010, 10:52:18 PM
Ooooh responses. Goody, goody.

Korados: I can do non-linear key signatures so by no means am I going to say tht they are difficult. But after playing some pretty cool/out there recently pieces, I've come to realise that key signatures don't really mean that much. It's only really useful if you've got some sort of siginificant transposition from C Major/A Minor. And seeing as this is kinda atonal according to the Western system of tuning/keys which we use here, I'm kinda reluctant to put one in. But if you really want me to put one in, I could, but perhaps not for the version that ends up on the site.

Shit, I forgot to put the key signature in Petalburg? Oh well. It's usually the last thing I do and sometimes it gets missed :P


Sekter77:Don't worry about using the correct terminiology, I can make sense of either one you decide to use. Having said that, you did get it right :D.
Measure 16 Ab - Done.
Re-doing note values - Done.
Last two measures - *scurries to find mp3* - Done

Ok, understood, so normally you use non-linear key sigs when the piece should be some sort of atonal. The piece is faaar away from atonal, it only got an indian feeling, I only thought that as a cosmetic change to the score, as the piece has so much sharps.

So does that mean you're going to re-do your old sheets or scrap all the ones you don't like?
And maybe starting a new, clean thread would have an opening post free from crap so you can feel better updating it.

EDIT: As another question, are you just going to focus on reformatting and updating sheets instead of new arrangements? Or is the new workload just going to put you on hiatus for a while while you help clean up the site? It's great that there's another hand around to keep the site running, so good luck with your new job!

Ah, Four Swords Adventures, wonderful music, horrible game. imo. Your arrangements are superb as always, Deku, just two things:

Are you sure that Dampe's Cabin is in C major or is that just the chromatism that looks so messy? and concerning Lake Hylia: I'm pretty sure it's G major up to m. 21, then it's C major and then it changes back to G major in m. 29, if I'm right. ;D

I don't think I really ever played the game that much, although I seem to remember hating the controls.

Dampe's Cabin: Chromaticism gone wrong. It kinda very loosely hangs around C minor (or perhaps G minor) but trying to put a key on this is more trouble than it's worth.

Laky Hylia: I'm pretty sure you're right, thanks ;)

Got some comments for two sheets you posted a while ago. :P



Puzzle Plank Galaxy is awesome on every level. Really good job with this. Only two minor problems I can find with it:

Petalburg is one of my most favourite pieces from PM:TTYD, and you've done it great justice; it actually sounds better on Finale than the original thing, would you believe. :P However, there is one thing really bugging me about it:

Seriously great arranging, Deku. Hope I helped. :D

Post by: Deku Trombonist on October 15, 2010, 10:10:53 PM
Puzzle Plank Galaxy:
Actually... I wrote the chord in measure 8 on the wrong beat :P But I'm not sure if moving it onto the corrct beat has made it more awkward. But I moved the bottom note to the left
hand anyway. Key signature, fixed. Other small things, fixed.

Petalburg:
I don't really think it needs a clef change seeing as the highest it goes most of the time is G, 3 ledger lines up. But if I was to put into treble then the lowest it would generally go is Eb, which is 3 ledger lines down. Not much difference in my opinion. But I did add a couple of 8va's for the few high Bb's and C's. As for the melody, as you said, I guess the best idea I could think of at the time was removing the staccatos. I raised the melody up an octave, I think it sounds alright there.

Just give me a couple of minutes to update the links. I'll put them here when I'm done.

Route 47?...hmmm...What the hell does that one sound like? *runs to overcrowded Mus Folder*

Woah! I just opened it in Finale 2010 and the anacrusis went all screwy on me. I may or may not fix that later.

Also, I don't get it, why does everybody seem to love that one? Personally, my favourite ones are the ones I've done from Secret of Mana that nobody seems to care about :P As for my other stuff, well I took 10 minutes to print off and learn Space Armada from Star Fox but as for everything else of mine, I think "meh" sums it up quite well.

But I digress, I guess its kinda cool that someone likes something I've done ;)

Nice job on the title theme, I've been playing Clocktown for a few years now, I wanted to ask, when the left hand breaks at about measure 30 (im not completely sure) Is it the same left hand a clocktown on day 2?

It seemed like it was with a few changes, so I'm not completely sure if I'd be right if i told you the left hand was different XD. But otherwise, i love it, I enjoy Majora's mask music a lot :P

O-shiii....... You're right, it is the same as Clocktown Day 2. Nice pickup there! I should probably go back and transcribe it from that recording instead seeing as it's alot easier to hear. The strings in the Title screen are really faint so I just did the best I could.

Banjo Tooie Overture? I dunno, I'm not really arranging much of my own stuff at the moment. If you can wait about 6 months, sure, I'll give it a go.

On Majora's Mask Title Screen: why did you change to 4/4 at the end? 6/8 still works for all the measures, and for me it would be easier to read without having to worry about a different way to count it. I guess it works no matter which way it's written, but it still kinda bothers me. Ultimately though, it's your call.
Title: Re: The Deku Trombonist - (Added 2 Songs [LoZ: Four Swords Adventures] 5 October)
Post by: Deku Trombonist on November 08, 2010, 09:29:57 PM
I can't think of how else to put this, but to me, it just didn't feel very 6/8-y (it makes sense if you read it out loud :P). Also, I didn't think it was a different way to count it. 6/8 has 2 beats to the measure and 4/4 has 4 beats, still the same number of beats per minute so there's no speed change. Although, I guess it feels a little different going between the two. I dunno. But I don't really think there's too much wrong with it the way it is.
Title: Re: The Deku Trombonist - (Added 2 Songs [LoZ: Four Swords Adventures] 5 October)
Post by: Sekter77 on November 09, 2010, 08:21:55 PM
It really could've gone either way. I guess it's just easier for me to read with a consistent time, but if the song's intention is to be in 4/4 then it should transcribed that way too. Also I think someone on a YouTube comment mentioned that the end is based on another song in the game which may actually be in 4/4. So, it's fine, I can just get used to the change.

Never played the game, but wonderful arrangement so far, it just lacks the key sigs:

mm. 1-4: C
mm. 5-12: G
mm. 13-16: Bb
mm. 17-28: G
mm. 29-32: Bb
mm. 33-36: G
mm. 37-50: Eb
mm. 51-52: C

Then it should be alright! ;)

Are all those really necessary? To me, a key signature change for 4 bars seems kind of pointless. And key signatures don't come from the accidentals, the come from the tonality of the piece.

Hey Deku, I know you've been very busy with life/updating/etc. but if you do find yourself with the desire to arrange something, any chance you could tackle some of the Donkey Kong Country arrangements? Many of them need brush ups or complete do-overs due to poor quality. I could take over a few updates for you if you wish so that you could find the time, seeing as it's been a while since I've done any updating. I feel your applied expertise would really nail that section.

Busy with life? Oh the lols  ;D You oughta spend a day with me sometime hehe. I've just started arranging again, got a couple of things in the works. So hopefully I'll get better with the whole juggling arranging/updating thing over time. I'm currently going back over my to-do-list and starting from the top, and on the top is finishing off fixing up the Animal Crossing section seeing as I started that over a year ago and never finished it. There are only about 5 songs left to fix up so it won't take that long. I guess I could bump DKC to the top of the list seeing as it all fits into the replacements category anyway.

Post by: Nakah on January 08, 2011, 06:58:23 AM
For such a synthesized track and musically jumpy song, I'd say you got about as accurate as one can for making it playable on the piano(without cluttering). Listening to it brought back the same feelings as playing the game, so that alone is success. This isn't an easy peice to arrange because of the difficulty in selecting which sounds to include, but you did a job well done to putting it all together. Kudos.


I'm being genuine about this as well, as I'm usually very critical of the songs from games that I like most, and listening for accuracy and authenticity is something I pay very close attention to. So rest assured I'm serious when I say you accomplished the 'feel' of the song.

Edit* I've also been checking back on this thread religiously since you said you'd move DKC to the top of your list, so you can count on my constructive criticism in the future.

Cheers Nakah. Do you think it'd be worth continuing the run at 26 through the first beat of 27 or is that asking a little too much of people?

Post by: Nakah on January 08, 2011, 09:16:08 PM
I would just leave it there. Anyone who's not going to learn both together can just leave the beat out, but it's more accurate with it in there. So might as well keep it as accurate as possible and let people take what they want from it.

Awesome! Donkey Kong Country music is fantastic, but it is difficult to transcribe because it's very atmospheric. They're really good, but I do have a couple of suggestions. In Aquatic Ambience, could you put in the tinkly instrument part or whatever that is in the last two measures to fill out the treble part? And in Fear Factory, I think measures 13 and 14 need to repeat another time.

I'm also glad you finished up the Animal Crossing sheets too. I didn't realize how great those sounded on piano until a couple weeks ago. So would it be too much to ask to have you do the Title Screen (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyo6KICXkvw&feature=player_embedded) music from AC: Wild World? It's just that that section seems a bit lonely compared to the Gamecube one.

Either way, thanks for making all these quality sheets and getting this place cleaned up.

After spending some quality time at the piano attempting to do Nemesis King Koopa I realised that overlapping notes aren't always that bad. Obviously they should generally be avoided if possible but sometimes it makes sense to have them for the sake of continuity. Also, I couldn't think of any way to really avoid it in this one.



Optional ending? Well..uh..I don't really do those, I wouldn't really know what to put.

Small playability issues in the ending that can be fixed by moving some notes into the left hand. But I'm the wrong person to ask for feedback seeing as I've never really bothered with endings.

Actually, I can't find any obvious mistakes. It's certainly better than the one already on the site anyway.
The only fixes I can find are that the tempo is a bit too slow (it should be about 100, not 92). And maybe in measures 13-16 and 27-30 you should have the last set of sixteenth-eighth be kind of swung instead of the straight feel. I went ahead and changed it (http://www.mediafire.com/?i9vuju565nuaxr9) for an example, so you can choose which rhythm you think is closer to the original.
Thanks again for more DKC!

It's actually great. For one of the trickier songs in the game that has a lot of sounds in one, you fit it together nicely.

Nakah: Contrary to what may be popular belief, I actually don't really want to spend all my time here doing replacements. But someone's got to do it.

But Deku, every DKC replacement you do revives a bit more of my childhood within me. What could be better than bringing life back into others?

I'm not sure which other songs from DKC are on your priority list, but if you do decide to take a break from them please find the time to do the DKC 2: World Map Theme if you can. That's my all time favorite and is one that needs replacement pretty badly. No rush, though. You're doing superb.

Post by: Sekter77 on January 13, 2011, 04:33:02 PM
Wow. I can't believe I never noticed that pun before. That's pretty clever!

The arrangement has kind of an empty bass part, especially in measures 3-5. I figured it would have more of the violin/string part in it. (measures 12 and 14 have a cool background string part too) But since you put this one up so quickly I guess you just didn't have enough time to get it worked out.

And even though you may not like doing all these arrangements, it is really appreciated. I've spent my free time learning these DKC replacements on guitar. They're great practice and lots of fun.

Nope, I had a choice of either the bass or the strings and I just picked the bass. Combining the two doesn't work, it's just unplayable.


So here's version 2 of the Map theme. Which one do you like better? I've left the links up for the version 1.

Hmmm. It's actually a pretty close race. I'm going to go with the second version with the string part though. Other than the A held at the beginning and the half notes in 12 and 14 (which aren't huge losses), everything's there. It just feels a little more complete in the second version.
I think I'll save both though, just in case. ;)

Can't wait to see what's next!

I personally like version 2 better. It sounds more whole and doesn't leave the listener imagining what the bass sounds like in the actual song. It's not an easy song to arrange, that's for sure, but this version sounds more close to the real song in my opinion.

Holy crap this is so awesome! I love the Kirby Air Ride soundtrack and this just made my night. This can easily go up there with Brassman's excellent duets.
A few suggestions though: in Measures 46 and 56, there's a quick high-pitched synth thing that could go in Piano 1's right hand.
*In Measure 26, I think the left-hand part in Piano 1 has an eighth-note triplet on beat 2.
*Measures 21-22, shouldn't Piano 2's left hand also be played on the "and" of beat 3 instead of the quarter rest?
*At the beginning, maybe Piano 1's right hand could also cut out at beat 2 instead of continuing to play that sixteenth-note run. I think it works a little better anyway.
*And finally, is the key signature supposed to be all naturals?
(The section could also use some cleaning up as there's a redundant sheet there and some other things, but that's for a different post.)

These are all just nitpicky things though, this is seriously great.
And thanks for a duet, they are the only way to really express a Kirby Air Ride song. They're too complex for just one player.
(Maybe you could do a duet to replace the City Theme too? *crosses fingers*)

Really like DKC map! Of course, I feel the need to be nitpicky and suggest maybe using the soundtrack title of the piece, "Simian Segue"? I noticed you used Aquatic Ambience as the title for the water piece and figured a neat trend would be nice. :D Excellent work!

Post by: Sekter77 on January 15, 2011, 07:06:50 AM
I hate to correct again, but it would actually be "DK Island Swing." Simian Segue is the title screen music.
And the map for DKC2 would be "Welcome to Crocodile Isle."
Aquatic Ambience and Fear Factory are both totally accurate names.

Measure 46 & 56: I can hardly make out the notes at 46 but I'll put something there. 56 is a little easier.
Measure 26: Nope, that's just the snare drum
Measure 21-22: I initially thought that too, but eventually realised that the only thing on the and of 3 is the "bass trombone" pumping out low G's.
Beginning: Fixed.
Key signature: Done.

Feel free to post replacement requests in here seeing as that's about all I end up doing these days aside from the occasional burst of inspiration & motivation.



Omg...what is this...2 new replies while typing!?!

I'd seen two conflicting names for the map theme of DKC so I left it as map theme. As for DKC2 map theme, I just figured "Island Map" may seem more obvious to more people as opposed to "Welcome to Crocodile Isle" but if it matters that much, I guess it's not too much effort to change it.

OOH!!!! OOH!!!! PICK ME TO CORRECT AGAIN!!!!

I did my research, and I'm sorry to say that this is what I found. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_go0c9fxCI)

The title makes sense, because segue is a term used to describe a way to smoothly transition from one topic to another, or in this case, a level.
Maybe DK Island Swing is the first level?

EDIT: Up to you, Mr. Deku. :D
Title: Re: The Deku Trombonist - (Added Nebula Belt (Two Pianos)[Kirby AirRide] 15 January)
Post by: Sekter77 on January 15, 2011, 07:41:01 AM
Well, the soundtrack I downloaded had DK Island Swing as the map theme. YouTube does corroborate your claim though so I guess I'm wrong.
DK Island Swing is the first level according to the OST, but there's another very similar song called Jungle Groove on the OST as well.

Deku:
Don't worry about the names honestly. It is more convenient to just use "Menu" or "Title Screen." But when it comes to levels, the proper names should be used cause they're usually descriptive enough. And if the City theme is really hard, I don't mind it going on the shelf. I'm requesting a lot more than I'm arranging so I don't think it's fair to dump a lot more work on your shoulders.
However, with the Kirby's Air Ride section, Magma Heat is the same song as Magma Flows and it's definitely not as good so it can probably be taken down entirely. Angel Valley is supposed to be the alternate song played on the track called Celestial Valley (http://kirby.wikia.com/wiki/Celestial_Valley). This song is actually the Forest music from Kirby's Adventure which has a sheet under Nightmare in Dreamland (a remake of Kirby's Adventure). You can compare Air Ride (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f05z7J8FuBI) to Adventure (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fa-Hik-w-Cw) to Nightmare (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47J6iGub3ks). You can decide if the differences are enough to warrant separate sheets (I personally don't really think so) and then remove or change names as needed.
As far as requests go, I'd rather see more Donkey Kong fixes (3 Country's and 64) cause they have some of the worst examples of formatting/arranging here and because I love the songs and want to see them properly presented.
EDIT: (Shameless self-plug: if you have any suggestions for my new arrangement I'd appreciate that a lot.)

Post by: dahans on January 15, 2011, 12:18:13 PM
Concerning Nebula Belt: It is really a good arrangement, no doubt about that. But I think arrangements for two pianos are useless. It would be much better if you could change them into a "4-hands" arrangement.
Title: Re: The Deku Trombonist - (Added Nebula Belt (Two Pianos)[Kirby AirRide] 15 January)
Post by: Sekter77 on January 15, 2011, 05:47:11 PM
Yeah, I'd try the twinkly bits. And the OST name for this is "Credits Concerto" if you want to change it ("credits" is still in the name)

Another thing is that this song has that echo-y effect on the notes and sometimes it kinda feels like the notes should be repeated more instead of just held down. Measures 12 and 16 are fairly strong examples of this. However, the rhythm can easily be altered by the player and may not need to be inserted into the sheet itself because the notes aren't changing. And the key signature should probably have F#.

After that, Treetop Rock or Cranky's Theme desperately need some fixing up.

I know I didn't get around to fixing up the DKC Credits, I'll try to get it done in the next day or so. In the mean time, I'd appreciate if anyone wants to/can be bothered to look over my old stuff that's still sitting in the opening post and tell me what needs a redo/fixing up.

And what do you mean "put anything that you want to arrange as a priority"? If you just want me to focus on arranging instead of corrections don't worry. I can't arrange any until the weekend and I should have quite a bit of time today and tomorrow. And besides, corrections don't take very long because I don't have to know what a note is, I just have to know it's incorrect.

Post by: Sekter77 on March 11, 2011, 09:01:12 PM
Olimar's suggestion sounds good.
Other than that you did a pretty good job balancing out the different instruments. I forgot that the end adds a lot of parts in.
Anyway, constructive criticism time: maybe look at Measures 153-159. The bass sounds a little weird, but maybe the chords are dissonant on purpose. I can't really tell.
Also, maybe you could put in the flute part at Measure 126 just before the next bar.
I think the left hand chords at Measure 143 are off a little bit too. It sounds like the high note should be above those in the preceding measure, not even with them.
And my last nitpick will be to say that the right hand G which starts Measure 143 could have a grace note on it.

Good job though on a long and difficult song! It's good to see one of the classics finally get the replacement it so badly needed. Thanks for putting so much work into this arrangement!

Key Changes: Couldn't be bothered and I'm not really sure where they'd go.

Runs @ 122 & 124: Fixed.

L.H. @ 153-159: The clarinet(or whatever it sounds like) plays the top notes in this bit and then I just added the chords from 137-144 seeing as that's where the section borrows some stuff from. But this changes some of the harmonies (ie Cmaj becomes Cmaj7 and Cmin becomes A half-dim7 etc) I personally don't mind them, it sounds kinda jazzy.

Flute @ 126: Done.

L.H. @ 143: I didn't write the chords where they were in the original because: 1) Any lower and chords start sounding crap & 2) It flows quite well where it is.

I don't think it's that important, but it's all i could catch.

The bass line written in quarter notes. In the audio track, when it repeats, the second time through, there's missing notes. On the off beats of beats one and three, there is a missing note. The bass like goes (D_C_D_C_)when it should go (DEC_DEC_)

The parenthesis represent a whole measure.

Only the second time through though.

It's hard to explain sorry.

Hey, a new Deku arrangement!
That one measure with the chords you're not sure on: I believe that the first two chords are correct. I'm not entirely convinced of the last one there, but I'm not too good with chords yet so I can't help much. I guess if I had to offer my opinion, I'd say my skepticism is with the lower notes in the chord. If you still can't figure it out though, it sounds good enough to pass submissions.

Also, winterkid, I do hear what you're talking about. There is an E between the C and D and it shows up both times that that section is played (i.e. before and after the repeat). I'm not sure how to include it in the sheet though since the first voice already has an E in it, so putting it in the red voice would be a bit redundant since the note would be getting played regardless. Maybe taking it out of the chord on that beat and putting it in the red voice would work since it kinda sounds like that's how it's being played in the original.

Anyway, the rest of it sounds great! Keep up the good work.

Lolz, it was the last one that I was most sure of. Anyway, I went back and looked over them and I reckon I'm pretty happy with it.

As for the other thing, it sounds like it's just a way of hearing it. Seeing as the E is already part of the repeated quavers, I'm inclined to leave it as it is.

Post by: Deku Trombonist on July 14, 2011, 03:19:58 AM
Hmmm... I dunno about that first chord. I think perhaps the A could be moved down to a G, and maybe the bottom E can go? The other 2 sound spot on (except B# and C are the same note :P). Thanks

Post by: Brassman388 on July 14, 2011, 04:41:06 AM
Yeah, I wasn't so sure about that first one either. I'd usually think you couldn't hear the A because the other tones were drowning it out, or something like that. As for the writing, I try to keep the note spacing even. You know, theory stuff.

I'm glad that helped.

...I got chills listening to that...

Measure 73: I'd go an octave higher in the right hand for that last phrase.

Also, I'm not so sure about the chords in the main theme (Measures 3-6, etc.). I'd double check those if I were you.

I would also add articulation to the beginning/main theme (like.. the first page, for example?)

mainly staccatos.

Post by: Sekter77 on July 14, 2011, 09:59:07 PM
Awesome! 2 in a row.

I actually never liked the Mario Kart Wii music as much as the other games. It has the same feel as the other games, but the melodies are just not as memorable to me.

Anyway, on to the song.
*In Measure 23, check the first two chords (C, D, and G) I think the first one is different than the second. It sounds like one of the middle notes is a bit higher, maybe another C major chord? SOmething like that anyway.
*Also, the E chords in Measures 68 and 70 sound like they have different inversions instead of being repeated the same way.
*And lastly, is there any way to make the very last note a chord and a glissando at the same time? Just having the single note there makes it kinda lack the impact of a full chord, but I don't know how Finale would react if it had a chord and the glissando line there.

Glad to see you're back on arranging again.

Post by: Deku Trombonist on July 15, 2011, 02:07:45 AM
Chords at the beginning: I changed one, the chord right at the end of bar 3 & 5 and wherever else that reappears. The rest seem fine
Bar 73: I left it where it is for the sake of continuity and minimising leaps etc
Articulations: Added
Bar 23: Nope, they're fine
Bar 68/70: Hmmmm... the thing is, the piano is split over two bits, the melody, and the chords behind the melody. So, the piano chord 'voice' is frequently in a different range than the melody but I've pretty much gone with the melody throughout. So, for that bit, I left it the way it was because the top Es stay there.
Chord+glissando: Done.

I'll update the link in my previous post in a sec


And I changed the left hand somewhere near the end

Wot? Deku arranged something?!?!

So I've had this replacement sitting around for a while, and I'm looking for some constructive criticism, mainly on the left hand. The first page LH is a bit of an experimentation to make it a bit more interesting.

I'm always so impressed with you arrangements Deku.   :)

First off, welcome back!

I actually didn't feel like the LH was experiment at all.  The rhythm's the same.
EDIT: Just noticed something:  On measure 22, I feel like that F should be an E sharp.  Something similar with measure 24.

Post by: Meta-Ridley on December 01, 2012, 12:07:40 AM
Hey Deku - I'm really glad you threw in all the field battle themes as well in this one.
My problem is not with the left hand, but rather the right hand. In bars 6, 8 and 12, as well as all similar bars throughout the piece, you have a long note, followed by quaver triplets. This clashes with the left hand (a bit) and it feels out of place. I think rather that you should say, for bar 6, have a dotted crotchet followed by two semiquavers.

Everything else was pretty damn good. I can't help but feel that there's not a lot happening at bars 67-83 but I know it's an accurate transcription of what's happening. What about a little experimenting?  ;)

EDIT: Just noticed something:  On measure 22, I feel like that F should be an E sharp.  Something similar with measure 24.

I did actually think about these as I was writing them down! :P The chord progression from bar 22-23 is viio7- I in A major. Therefore the chord in bar 22 is G#-B-D-F. Same thing with bar 24, except the progression is a tone higher, in B minor.

This clashes with the left hand (a bit) and it feels out of place. I think rather that you should say, for bar 6, have a dotted crotchet followed by two semiquavers.
Hmmmm... I went back to the original just to check, and the rhythm is definitely triplet-y and alot more relaxed than a semiquaver rhythm would be. I see what you mean though.... Anyone got any thoughts? Brassman?

Oranges are your best friend. Consume plenty.

Quite a bit happened since the last time we typed. I traveled a good distance across the U.S. Lost my job. Met a sweetheart of a lady. Been writing music. I guess you can say I went through a revision/reinvention of lifestyle. It wasn't dramatic or anything but, man, if you ever get a chance to travel and get out of the small plot of land you call home, you experience stuff. Good stuff.

Yeah, just for a laugh. Because in the game the second section plays on (or after??) the 64th time :P

And here's something I just knocked up since my last post.

[GCN] Super Smash Bros. Melee

Edit:
Aaaand here's one I just found lying around.

[GCN] The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

Mmmm not really, but I have this  :D

Super Smash Bros. Melee - Final Destination (Duet) (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/84117653/Submissions/Super%20Smash%20Bros.%20Melee%20-%20Final%20Destination%20%28Duet%29.mus)

Meta-Ridley requested duets of SSBM ages ago and I started this one, got about half way through and haven't touched it in about a year :P
So I just wrote down the rest of the notes tonight. This is kind of a first draft, some of those harmonies are pretty insane to transcribe and the actual arranging isn't too flash. I'm just looking for feedback and ideas ;)

I only want to pick on something about the melody:
Ever since I first heard this song I have always interpreted the melody to be like this (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/75726060/Menu%201/final%20destionation.pdf)?
I don't know what you think about that..

Nope, I slowed it down and that's not it. Having said that, it wasn't what I had either so it's fixed now.
The note you're putting on beat one is from the background chord hits, not the melody instrument.

Haha thanks Banjoman  :D

This is a song that modulates very frequently - but I don't think it is such a big deal with this song.
It is a pain to read with key changes everywhere, so I wouldn't change the key.
That's just me though.

Yeah it moves up through the interval cycle of minor thirds (G min, Bb, Db(written C#) and then I forget what it does).

No I'm not putting a key change. You don't need it to indicate key, only to remove accidentals. And then I'd have to work out exactly where else it changes key because it doesn't stay in Bb for that long. The piece is still in G anyway, it just moves.

Post by: Dudeman on March 28, 2013, 05:18:55 AM
A very good arrangement! The only thing I have a disagreement with the first measure. I don't hear the A, in the left hand of the primo part, in the original piece. If it is there, it's very quiet and subtle, so maybe the note should be likewise? That's the only thing that I'm not liking in the piece though; great job overall!

Personally, I'd love to see a replacements for "Pokewalker" and "Pinna Park". Specially "Pinna Park", it's a shame that such a wonderful song has such a poor arrangement (http://www.ninsheetm.us/sheets/SuperMario/SuperMarioSunshine/PinnaAmusementPark.pdf).

But if someone else wants some other song more, I wouldn't mind. :)

Deku, you know me, I'd be happy with any of the Zelda songs on there.  I think JD is doing TP Staff Roll, and Dusk did SS's, but it's only one piano.  And we DESPERATELY need a new arrangement of OoT's.

Oh, god..

Well, Deku, you listed Brinstar:
If you can't find motivation for any of the songs, you could just do the easiest of them - Brinstar - now, why is that the easiest one? Well, basically because I already arranged it (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/75726060/Brinstar/Brinstar.mus), so it would be extremely easy to just exploit my arrangement for help and inspiration.
Just a suggestion
^I should mention; almost all of my key changes are stupid, so screw them.

I found a sheet of music inside a stack of papers, and the top of the sheet was ruined and it looked like there were a couple of pages following it.
When I played it it was the most beautiful arrangement of Pollyanna I've heard on a sheet of music. I'm looking high and low for the arrangement, and I'm wondering if it was you who arranged it.

K I'm going to speak my mind here, mariolegofan. It's kinda starting to bug me how you're always underhandedly trying to request songs on specific people. If you want a song arranged, request it like everyone else. I'm not trying to be mean, but it seems kinda rude to be (I use this term loosely here) "assigning" people songs that you want arranged.
I mean, either just request them the orthodox way, or do them yourself. (I'm not mad, but I think it needed to be pointed out)
Title: Re: The Deku Trombonist - (Added Rainbow Road (Duet) [Super Mario Kart] 21 June)
Post by: FierceDeity on September 25, 2013, 11:46:27 PM
I agree with JDMEK. I won't give some preachy lecture on showing respect when requesting arrangements (lest Slow comes and gets mad at me again), but the fact is that people will do requests if and when they want to. For example, I'm going to finish Overthere Stair for you, but it may not be for a bit, due to a combination of me being swamped/having other arrangements (Nimbus Land, which I'm also doing for you :P) that I want to do more.

But yeah. Arrangers who want to do requests go to the request board when they're good and ready.

Nice, the MKDD Menu theme! I've been requesting that one for years! (only saw your PM now, though, I'm not as often on here any more).

The sheet is very good, but the... gah-what-are-they-called-chords (like the very first chord) feel a little too short. I think they are a little more dragged out in the original. Can this be fixed somehow?

Also, the bass line is a little hard to read, with all those deep notes. Could 8vb be an idea?

Other than that, though, great job!

Well kinda.. Is this better?

Also, the bass line is a little hard to read, with all those deep notes. Could 8vb be an idea?
I wasn't so sure about that because then I'd have the A's and B's on top of the staff with an 8vb which might look weird, but you're right, it is a bit of a pain. Fixed.

Post by: Cobraroll on November 25, 2013, 08:19:31 PM
Yeah, a lot more readable, at least!

Listening to the original song, the "fanfares" (for the lack of a better word) are a lot faster than I had remembered. I always thought they were five notes in rapid succession, but they turn out to be more like how you wrote them. In other words, your sheet is more accurate than I thought it was. Well done!

And Waddle Bro, I'm still around, from time to time. It's just that I have a lot more to do now than earlier, and the discussions in here either go way above me (the music stuff) or are a little too internal (the Off-topic section is basically a chat room for a few members, it seems). I still visit NSM every now and then, though, and will continue to do so, hopefully. Nice to see that activity is still going strong on this forum, though main site updates appear to be just as infrequent as they used to be.

May I use the ocassion to ask Deku, an uploader: How long does it take to approve and upload one sheet to the main site? Is it a quick enough task that it could be done regularly (say, once a week) to keep the main site somewhat active? If the uploaders plan a little ahead, make a schedule and keep each other in check, we could get sheets to the site at a regular pace, at least, without sucking too much of the uploaders' time. With five uploaders working together, each of them would only have to commit X minutes of their time every fifth week, which wouldn't be too bad. Having updates on the front page is also what makes visitors come back to NSM. It shows that there is activity, that the site isn't dead. One sheet a week is very little, but at least it's more than nothing.

Really nice! Two small things I pointed out though:

-Chords in the left hand like bar 12 and 20 are very hard to play for me, and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one. Maybe you could add parentheses on one of the notes to make it easier for the less-Liszt under us?
-You missed a repeat marking in the last bar. Hurdurhurblurderp.

1)Hmm.....I had 20 like that because I could play it (I wouldn't do that with many chords other than C). And as for 12, it looks like Finale undid my cross staffing.
2)Oh noes!! lol

Ummm....correct me if I'm wrong but shouldnt this be in 12/8? I mean 3/4=6/8 and 4/4=12/8....
3/4 is not 6/8, 6/8 is 2/4 with tuplets, just like 12/8 is 4/4 with tuplets. I haven't dug deep enough into music theory to understand the difference between the 6/8 and 12/8, but I have a feeling this isn't 12/8. Gonna look this up now actually.

EDIT: I think it has something to do with the accent of a beat, 6/8 being 1-and-a-2-and-a, and 12/8 being 1-and-a-2-and-a-3-and-a-4-and-a. If that makes sense.

Spot on. 12/8 has a heavy accent on all four divisions, with a heavier division on 1 and 3. This is why it is so similar to 4/4 with triplets. 6/8 on the other hand, has a strong 2 to 1 weight distribution.

The music from castle crashers is especially inspiring. Just the way that it perfectly coincides with the mood of the game is great. I'll just throw in the title theme for convenience.

I also really love Glorious Morning from Castlestorm *cough*I found it in Age of War*cough* and I can not say how many times I have listened to it. I just love it. :)

I have a notebook full of Deku arrangements which I still enjoy playing through to this day :P

Curious, the Ocarina of Time arrangements you have on your YouTube channel. Do you plan on updating the "on-site" ones with those? That would be awesome since the ones on site could use your updated ones.

Ah...that's a shame. Oh well, I'll definitely go search through what you have, so no worries ^^



I went to quick-learn your Ocean Palace, and in the performer's position I saw a lot more awesome things than I did when I listened to your track four times consecutively.

It has to be said - you've done an absolutely amazing job with this arrangement.

I think your Ocean Palace best encapsulates what an "arrangement" should be. The original uses loops, which we, as arrangers, don't really like. In the first section the blippy ostinato that you've transcribed in the first bar is supposed to repeat throughout, with added layers of pads increasing the tension in each repetition. You chose to, mostly, ignore the pads, and instead focused on building the tension rhythmically. Which was a really creative and ridiculously effective move. As a performer, I definitely felt the tension rising in each phrase, I was naturally moved to give a little more as you threw in more notes; I knew what the original sounded like, and this wasn't really close, but that's the magic of an arrangement. In that first section I found myself taking an entirely new take on the music - instead of presenting it as a serene but tumultuous build I went full-cinematic. It was epic. You wrote it in such a way that I knew your intentions exactly, without any reference to the original.

The second section was even more creative - in the original the melody soars above the blips, but that's not possible on a piano, so you create contrast with the first section by adding this peaceful arpeggio in the left hand without losing the bass motif. The contrast can extremely naturally as well. And when the melody came back in chords, with a few extra octaves added in the left hand part, everything came together.

The D minor section (you chose to keep it in the original key, which is kinda fine because there weren't clear resolutions) was quite faithful to the original, but I saw that you scored the drum beats using the left hand part ;). I love that technique, it worked out really well in the performance, and it helped to create a nice rhythmic contrast with the previous flowy section.

Even in the following chromatic section, you played a fun move. The original has four exact repeats - you took advantage of the ability of the piano to conveniently add a few notes to thicken texture and created a very, very effective rhythmic and textural build to a temporary ff climax. It flowed so, so dang naturally.

There was so much genius and so much creativity in that work, and I thought that the least I could do was to report back to you on it so you knew that, well, we can tell. When you communicate with the performer so effectively that all things come into place without too much hassle, then you've got a fantastic arrangement.

Amazing job, once again ^^

I have a notebook full of Deku arrangements which I still enjoy playing through to this day :P
Yay, it's nice to know someone gets something out of them.

Oh well, I'll definitely go search through what you have, so no worries ^^
You'll probably be disappointed :P I set out with a different intention when arranging Ocean Palace, so this is somewhat different to my usual fare. Most of my stuff is basically transcription.

I thought I'd try something a little different and try to transcribe the entirety of something. I might do a few more of these, they're a good stretch.

Here's a new arrangement. It's from Super Mario Odyssey so I'll put the video in a spoiler for now in case some people haven't reached this point in the game yet.
