Haha, Onionélaf sounds like a name for some fancy French cuisine. :D

I made all those adjustments, thanks!

Cool, thanks for the handy advice, I've updated the files. :)

Awesome! I can see the reasons for each change made and they all make sense. :) I've updated the files with your edited version.

Story Telling / Poetry for Beginners - Haiku (and more?)
« on: June 28, 2018, 10:17:30 AM »
As much as I love reading stories and poetry, I really have no talent for writing them. However, that doesn't mean that there's no reason to still enjoy it as a hobby. I've always found haikus to be both fun and fortunately not too challenging. So I thought I would write some once in a while to distract my mind from the hassles of daily life.

I hope you'll also join me on this mini challenge and get your creative juices flowing. :) Who knows, there may be a writer lying dormant within you...

Pen twirls on paper
A stage of pure perfection
With no binding rules.

White. Black. Back and forth,
Keys are struck, bringing forth sound
As clear as raindrops.

Through ornate branches
The sun burns golden, then red
Amidst pastel skies.

(The winter sunsets have been really beautiful this month!)

Piano Arrangements / Re: The Fire Emblem Arrangment Project

Hi there, welcome. :) Best of luck with your project, it's a great game series to arrange for. I have my own Fire Emblem wishlist that I may or may not find the time to arrange. If you're keen, I've just selected a couple below that I would be happy to see as piano sheets:

Piano Arrangements / Re: Onion's Arrangements

Juggling full-time work and studies is no fun. :( At least I passed my exam in May and could do a bit of arranging since then:

The Legend of Zelda - Skyward Sword:
"Leaping from the Clouds" [MUS] [MUSX] [Original]
"Sealed Grounds" [MUS] [MUSX] [Original]

Fire Emblem: Awakening:
"We'd best prepare for combat, just to be safe." [MUS] [MUSX] [Original]
(I didn't like the formatting of the sheet I found online, so I created my own version)

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations:
"Très Bien" [MUS] [MUSX] [Original]


Again, sorry for the lack of response. Here's the link to the previous submission:

To answer the query about the mordents, yes it was due to Finale playback that I have included them instead of grace notes. At the moment though, the playback sounds off only in m 6.


Sorry for not getting back sooner with the changes (quoted below). Olimar's link was broken when I checked it today... whatever else needs to be changed, please let me know and I'll fix it asap.

Final notes (I think):

-Even in 6/8, you can still beam 10-13 in 3/4 without a time change. That's not unusual to see in pieces like this. Personally I think it would be easier to read that way. Up to you.
-Measures 15 and 17 have a harmony of G minor, so the A#'s need to be Bb's.
-Measures 18-19 have a harmony of E half diminished, so the A#'s need to be Bb's.
-The second layer in 10-13 doesn't capture the harmonic changes from the original as well as it could, and I think this is because of the inversions you used. I would recommend that you rewrite it to maintain the lowest voice as the bass as it was in the original. The B in 11 should also be a C, which is also contributing to this.
-In adition to the above bullet, the LH in that section is also a contributor to that issue. Methinks that should be much higher, like where the bells would naturally sound. They also contain more notes than just the root and fifth (check out my example below).
-I think the dynamics could use some tweaking. Piano seams more appropriate for the outer two sections. The section at 10 could come up some more since it is so different.

Below is a version of this sheet with the suggested changes listed above. Use it as you please:

Yay, congrats all on a job well done! A big thanks for those who helped tidy up my sheets, I'm pleased with how shiny they look. :)

Wow, these are superb! Your performances really bring all of your arrangements to life. Most would be a challenge for me to learn, but I can at least say thanks for your Korok Forest arrangement - I really enjoy playing it. ^^

Please share more!

I'm not having a good run with my time signatures, am I? :P

All fixed!

I think I found myself a cute new mascot. ^^

Well, guess I better get back to my studies... *crawls back into her paper pile*

Cool, thank you for the corrections, I should have realised to include a lot more dominant 7th chords. Hopefully I've understood all of your points correctly (forgive my sleepy brain if I missed anything).

I see what you mean about changing to 4/4 swing, but I felt that because there are so many triplet quavers *ack* 8th notes, it seems easier to read the music in 12/8.
