[SNES] Kirby's Dream Land 3 - "Grass Land Map"


This is actually the third draft; the first two were so old they weren't even in swing tempo or my newest template. You can probably guess what those looked like.

This was a piece of cake. "Grass Land 4" will be next (but, unfortunately, it will not be a dessert.) Just stay tuned. I'm still waiting on help on some sheets, so it's hard to tell which ones I'll be sharing next.

Always remember to post a video; preferably a non-extended version.

Before I go too deep into this, I noticed there's an intro your sheet is missing. Listen again.

4 old but finally finished sheets incoming


[NDS] Mario Kart DS - "Nintendo WFC Menu"


I don't normally do calm, relaxed songs like this, but this sheet was definitely worth the patience. Even better, it's currently getting a slight makeover in submissions, which makes me happy.


[GCN] Mario Kart: Double Dash!! - "Circuit" (Replacement)


Hoo boy, this one took a long time, too. It sounded empty without a whistle part, so I thought, "Why not? I'll add one in." Checking chords and revising for consistency took much longer than everything else, but I'm glad it's done and on its way to the site.

[NES] Mega Man 4


Dr. Wily Stage 1 [ZIP]

I didn't finish this right away, due to playability concerns, but I later moved notes around and got over it. I tried to make this sheet as accurate, as well as unique, as possible, so I hope you like it!

Here's a nearly 1 1/2 year-old one. I hate almost everything about this tune, but hey, it's Mega Man, so it's on my list. Take it!

That's all for today. I have two more nearly-completed sheets on the way; I just need help from a couple of people first. Toodles!

P.S: While updating the OP, I noticed my character limit had finally maxed out. So, I moved all the sheets in the "Other" category down to the next post (as well as kept the original 2 year-old post intact in quote form) Also, I now have an extra dedicated spot for my two current submissions, which can be found in the Key. This has been your regular OP maintenance message.

Very good interpretation, but there are a couple of very minor things that could possibly be tweaked.

Measure 3 is actually a G chord, possibly a major 7th in the bass. I would definitely put it in the next measure seeing as it's the same chord.

In measure 9, it seems like the A in the bass is held out for much longer than the quarter note that you give it.

In measure 10, 12, it seems a little odd that you would chose to give the A in the treble it's own layer, when you could just attach it to the first layer. That would speak clearly to the performer, and get rid of unnecessary rests in the measure.

Measure 17, Another 2nd layer option that seems strange. Maybe change the top layer so that it's playing 2 half note A's in succession, then have the whole note A below it in a second layer?

The thing is, when you have pedal markings throughout the piece, it makes it kind of redundant to have second layer notes function as if you didn't have pedal markings. I see this problem from measure 21 to the end and especially in measure 29.

Measure 22, 30 - I would consider deattaching the D in the & of beat 1. It gives clarity that you're coming from an off beat to on the beat.

That's pretty much all I got so far.

Hope this helps.

Oh, one more thing: grace notes are inherently connected to the note it's attached to, so slurs connecting the two notes are redundant.

I disagree with the part about the grace notes. However, in this example they don’t need to be connected all the way to the end of the tie; connect them to the next and flip them to go downwards instead of upwards.

Thank you guys, this helped a lot. I updated with Brassman and Olimar's suggestions.

One question for Brass: is there any reason you got rid of the LH slur in m. 28? I kept it because the articulation of the RH on LH rhythms seems to have contrast in that measure, and to keep a slur out would probably confuse the performer by having nothing at all.

I think Brassman knows what he's doing. This site already has freeform sheets like this, doesn't it?


Evil Devil -
An interesting song here.
- I would put a dotted line (shows voice crossing) here so this doesn't look like it was sporadically placed.

- Personally, I think M. 6, in general, is a mess. I would remove those 16ths. They're unpianistic in my opinion and serve little purpose. Also, the Ab seems unnecessary.

- The layout is a bit of a mess. The page is currently at 95%. I would put it down to 90 or 85, use the staff tool and click the top box (so it highlights all the stop staves), spacing them that way, and then moving the copyright down a bit. This will also solve the problem of the mp dynamics looking like they're a part of the top staff instead of wondering which they're a part of. As for the dynamic markings, I would recommend putting them in the middle of the grand staff, but I understand this is your preference.
- When playing through this song and coming to M. 8, the 16ths confused me because it looked like there was an E# and then a subsequent F (natural) when in fact it's an F# sharped somewhere previously in the same measure. To purge any ambiguity, I'd put a parenthesized courtesy accidental on the F# on beat 4.
- The second dotted half in M. 11, 13, & 14 (and any other measure like it) change to like M. 6 in my screenshot (eighth tied to quarter).

I think that's all I have for this one, but make the changes and I'll double check. The notes sound good.

Updated Evil Devil. How do the 6/4 measures look? (along with the rest of the sheet, of course, including 2nd layer rests)


Revenge -
- Once again, I'd zoom it out to 85%, space the systems, move the copyright down, etc.
- In M. 2 & 4, go ahead and turn the tied quarters into a half note (also anywhere else that returns).

Rhythms fixed. Shrunk the sheet to 90%, and adjusted the systems accordingly.

Quote from: Sebastian
"Theme from The Legend of Dracula / Reprise" looks pretty good.

Great. So that means the little narrative I wrote in towards the end can stay?

Notes sound good. Thanks for picking 8-bit songs.  ;D

Hey, that's why they call me I call myself the "Game Boi Arranger". ;)

Try again. The right files are there this time.

Woo-hoo! That monstrosity of a sheet is no more (course, I did happen to save it to my files)


As indicated by the title of my sheet, I'd like it to be renamed "Circuit" to give Mario & Yoshi Circuit credit for having the same theme.

I'd also note that, yes, the Balloon Fight sheet under Melee is supposed to be under Balloon Fight as "Bonus Round". Same song.

Usually, in 6/8 time, I'll leave the measure whole. Also, I like it for counting reasons and I feel it'd be helpful for those that want to count out the song. If encouraged more, I guess I could change it.
I don't use the Maestro font. I use the Engraver font set.

Ok, just checking. That makes sense.

This is a swell sheet, but why not just use a pickup measure at the beginning?

Also, I've wondered something about your recent sheets; the 8va doesn't look like the general Maestro format. Is there a reason?
