There's really nothing wrong with a 15ma line here. It's perfectly appropriate where used.

As for m. 19-22, I think the disparity from the harmony comes from having it incorrectly written in the first place - when I arranged this I got a G minor chord for m. 19 and 21 instead of Eb major.

I've kept some things the same in my arrangement that appeared different in yours (8va that I wrote in on beat 4 of m 11, chord voicings in m 19, etc.), but if these need fixing then I'll get on it right away.
I'll go double check sometime soon (pretty busy today).

Definitely possible, but worth the trouble for the average user? I'm asking Yug Guy to consider the massive gap in difficulty between playing both hands one behind another in close proximity, or dividing up the line to be played with two hands rather easily - and to consider if the difference in sound is worth it.

I realize this arrangement is much more of an actual arrangement, rather than a transcription for piano, but I don't see why this would be problematic.
There's nothing wrong with that. The things I listed above were my concerns about how well your interpretation "works" for piano, not how "accurate" it is.

I'll have more to say at some point later; I will have quite a busy week coming up (and am eagerly awaiting your new edits!)

Ah whoops. I knew the To the Moon one and the Odyssey one but I forgot to PM in answers...

Latios? Is that you?


sees one single CD-i sheet in submissions

I only asked him to place the courtesy accidentals that were clarifying for one previous measure (not two, three, etc.)
Yeah, I figured that was what you were going for. Was just pointing out that the sheet was inconsistent because you missed some places I mentioned above, like m. 23 when the Eb follows the En.

Just popping in real quick - in measure 21 you have a G7 chord, so make that Cb a Bn.

And in measure 27 RH, it's best to clarify which A you're playing since the LH is playing Ab.

Also, if you're going for courtesy accidentals, there's a handful of other places they could be placed, like the LH of 5, 7, 14, 23, 30... not that you have to. Other places like measure 8 RH don't seem like they're needed at all. I guess my point is, find a level of pickiness you want in terms of where to put courtesy accidentals, and keep it consistent. I'm not saying you should take them out or keep them in, but I tend to err on the side of fewer courtesy accidentals to avoid clutter (particularly parentheses), and sometimes even confusion where a courtesy accidental is present on a note that would obviously be read as intended anyway. Keep in mind the player knows what the key signature is, and should automatically mentally reset accidentals at the beginning of each measure.

One handy thing you can do that I find helpful is try sight-reading the sheet with no courtesy accidentals at all, and then mark the places where you misread or do a double-take. That might help you determine which ones are clarifying and which ones just take up space.

I really like the sound of that.

Looks good to me!

A while ago (mid-2016) I posted this arrangement, not totally satisfied with how it came out, and I hadn't touched it since. But daj surprised me with this super awesome cover, so hey I guess it does work! I touched it up a bit just now, so the links lead to slightly neater files.

Spread love to daj for doing yet another awesome performance! :D

Haven't looked too closely yet, but just a few passing comments:
- A tuplet number is overlapping some notes at the beginning. Actually, this seems quite difficult to play and would suggest cutting it down to just one line for simplicity.
- Measure 6 needs some playability adjustments... measure 10 likely does as well.
- Slur the grace notes in m. 21-22 to the notes that follow.
- D.S. at the end is missing a period after the S.

Could I recive a feedback please?
Patience, please. There are a lot of other submissions for us to go through as well.

Anyway, there's no need to write this in 2/2 with such a high tempo. Cut all the note durations in half, as well as the tempo.

Very good work. Sure has come a long way. I like the way the left hand is really easy to play.

- You've got ample room at the bottom of page 2. Free up some space between staves by moving a system from page 1 to page 2, and raise the copyright up a bit from the bottom of the page.
- How about a D under the RH G on beat 1.5 of the last measure? (It's there in the original, just an octave lower).
- In the interest of maintaining intervallic consistency, try using a C flat in measure 32.
- Last note of measure 8 LH should be a G.
- Is there a reason you have the left hand lead-ins at measures 16 and 24 at different octaves?
- D on beat 4 of measure 32 (LH) should be Eb.
- beat 1 of measure 40 LH should be Ab.

Okay, now that those small things are taken care of, take a moment and think about the arrangement as a whole. The accompaniment up until the last section is extremely light. You've sacrificed the low bass notes, which makes it sound super light and airy. This is fine to start with, but it starts sounding same-y after a while, and it makes the transition to low bass notes in measure 32 very sudden. Consider lowering the accompaniment by an octave somewhere around the middle of the song to keep things interesting and do a better job of building up to the last section, if that makes sense.

Looks good, but could we put all of the left hand staccatos above the noteheads in places where they're currently not? You could also afford to space out the systems a bit more.
