This is brilliant. And um, I'll be doing theory crash courses in time to come, so maybe I could help with that "advanced" part, hehe! ^^

The greatest generation. Sure, the plot wasn't as deep as...um, non-Pokemon games. And Diamond/Pearl had only two Fire-types throughout the whole generation. It was a flawed game.

But holy shite, I loved it. The trek through Route 216 made me love Pokemon forever, even though many games with better gameplay came about throughout the years.

And of course, the soundtrack. If it weren't for this game, I would probably be covering tasteless EDM tracks for my life, so thanks to this great game for everything :)

Pretty sure this one isn't on-site, which is kinda weird. No results for "dodongo", "volvagia", and "stallord". Hmm.

I really love this theme, but it's not so straightforward to arrange as copying the bass and melody. Will give cookies to anyone who arranges this! ^^
(and, well, probably a recording too ahaha)

kinda-double post because i was wrong :p

Nope, turns out that the lower part is the melody, at least for the first phrase. My bad. Cross-checked it with the ending theme and yeah, it came to that conclusion.

Mm in that case I don't think it'll hurt to write single notes! ^^ It's good for contrast, and sixths can mess with the sonority a lot more than someone might hope. So yeah, I'm going to throw in an entirely new idea here - just a single melodic line for the first phrase.

When I was playing Earthbound, it felt that the upper-part harmonisation was the melody - i.e. it sounded exactly as if you were to play this arrangement normally. Not sure if something happened during the OST rip, but I really don't remember the lower part sounding so prominent.

If we are to go by the youtube example and write legato sixths though, it's not really a problem - the melody isn't meant to be 100% legato, and there's some natural jumps in it ^^

I'm surprised no one's commented here yet! ^^ You've got a really nice ear for harmonies, and your Lavender Town was a really refreshing take on the original. Great stuff, really! :)

I think "Pianoth" is a wonderful artistic name with lots of nice flavour! ^^ Welcome to the forums, man, glad to have you here!

It's amazing to think that a serious pianist/composer would come here, so hey! That's awesome. Your first sheet looks really good too! ^^ Above that though, I'm really looking forward to your performances especially. You seem to be pretty competent at what you do, so that's more yay for us all :)

Keeping a lookout for this thread, but have a great stay at NSM~

Honestly I really respect that you're taking charge of this to get something done - thank you so much mate! ^^

It's probably not a bad idea to call for new judges if everyone doesn't have time! I'll consider pulling out to judge if this delays a little too long, whee :)

Help! / Re: What key/time signature is this song in?
« on: March 29, 2017, 12:52:40 AM »
Hey, thanks for the thoughts, Static! ^^ Yep, it's C natural minor with the D-flat chord added in for flavour (there's a theory term for this, neapolitan 6th i think).

I quite dig the idea of notating it in 9/8, and in a similar style to the Brubeck sheet you shared. So thanks for the sharing, yeah :)

Oh, and for great Marsh, the more I think about your idea, the more stupid cut time sounds. I'll be scoring it in 4/4, hehe~

Help! / Re: What key/time signature is this song in?
« on: March 28, 2017, 07:57:55 AM »

It's the 2300 AD background track from Chrono Trigger! :) I don't intend to arrange this, but this is one of the tracks that's worthy of some thought. ^^

If you were to arrange this, what would be a nice time signature? It's not meant to be beated, but there's this fun interaction in the track - percussion parts beat every two eighths, and every long chord lasts nine eighths. Yep, that's right: nine eighths. The phrases are four chords long, with the first and third chord progressing in step to the second and fourth chords respectively. :)

So it would seem right to write it in 9/4, but that suggests compound triple meter. 4+5/4 or 5+4/4 would be ignoring the equal division of the long chords. The best option I can think of is writing in 18/8 (which doesn't really suggest that equal division either, but eh) or writing in 4/4 and making the whole thing a mess of ties. :p

Thoughts? ^^ Would be glad to hear some of them, because this track is just so worth discussing <3

oh and since i'm here: great marsh from dppt.

i'm almost certain this is 2/2, but i have seen pretty much zero sheets on the site in 2/2. would anyone else write this in 2/2?

The amount of effort and thought both of you put into it is clear. Thanks for analyzing it, the arrangement/performance choices give me stuff to think about. Also, nice job with the actual performance itself!

Thank you for taking the time to read that word dump! ^^ If you're trying this sheet, be prepared for awesomeness. ;)

And thank you! ^^ It was a lot easier than i thought it'd be, so I could play a lot more freely than the average arrangement. Glad ya enjoyed it :)
