Short, concise, terse. Uhm, I thought that word meant that in English, I was wrong apparently, interestingly enough ("Sintetico" in Italian means both "concise" and "artificial"). Anyway, that's what I meant; I guess I'll modify my post to make it clear enough.

But I in fact strongly disagree with Olimar's view that the formatting guidelines should simply be linked to. I think he underestimates human incompetence. I think they need to be much more prominent than a simple link within a page, or else it will not change anything.
Yeah, that's why I also think we need a very concise but clear page (or even two pages, but not more than that I would say) with as much information as possible, but as short as possible (otherwise, most people won't contribute because of tl;dr).

I think we should create one or two concise pages, containing only the necessary information, that is:
  • how to check if your arrangement is good and follows all the formatting standards of the site;
  • how to submit the score.
Any other tips on arranging in general, and music theory stuff, must be either inserted in a concise way on the first page, or just with a link to the forum, or both, with the forum having more information. We must be careful though: the more information you give to users on that page, the less likely they would have patience and learn everything before submitting. That's why I think doing more than two pages wouldn't work.

I conceptually agree with Olimar: many things would be learned quickly on the first submissions. But a simple, concise page would help a lot, I think. In fact, I don't think that writing these pages would be a problem; the main issue is selecting what to say or not. The plan proposed by Altissimo would be great if we wanted to update the NSM Resources on the forum, but it would be just too much for the site.

I agree with the idea, also considering I needed to search and read several pages before making my first submission. I think that the best thing that could be done is basically to put all NSM Resources on the main site, in some well-ordered way.

Happy birthday Olimar!! ;D ;D ;D

I put quite a bit of effort in this arrangement. There's fingering when I thought it was needed, and that's the fingering I believe that it's the best (I tried several possible alternatives), at least for my hand.

2 versions of a new arrangement:
[NS] – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Spirit Orb ObtainedOriginalMIDIMUSMUSXPDF
Spirit Orb Obtained (Duet)OriginalMIDIMUSMUSXPDF
After all the hype for my latest two arrangements, I decided to arrange everyone's favorite song in the entire soundtrack. Just kidding ;) I didn't have much time this week, so I decided to post this short sound effect. It wasn't even that easy to arrange actually. The duet is as close as I could get to the original. Actually, I could write the rhythm more precisely, but I decided to go with this one to keep it simple. The solo version is the closest I could get to the original without using a second performer. I put a delayed A in a lower octave because the harmonics make it sound like it wasn't played much after. Moreover, that way it sounds a lot more intentional.

Yeah I know, it's a thing that must be done at the end of everything. Actually, in this case, both LH and RH should be moved, so I would also prefer to use the measure tool (you can also manually drag notes with that btw, and it moves both LH and RH). The solution I suggested is more appropriate when you need to do a small and quick fix. I think it's mandatory only in the case you need to move only one of the layers (the measure tool moves every layer), or when you need to move a note/chord in only one of the staffs.

That'd take forever.
There are literally 16 chords to move. It's not like it would take "forever" hahaha... Since the score is short, these are pretty much equivalent solutions. My solution is slower, but it's easier to explain and to understand ::)

You could also just move the notes with the special tools.

Those cluster chords towards the end were fun to make, I'm not sure if there's a better or easier way to make them, so if you know about them please let me know. As always, feedback is greatly appreciated!
The way you wrote them is fine, in my opinion.

Great, now this is stuck in my head
This got stuck in mine for quite a while:

Really? That would be awesome!

The purpose of a key signature is not to help the reader with accidentals, but to show the tonic/tonal center yes? I'm personally against no key signature songs that are obviously not centered around C or A, technically allowable or not.
Yeah, I agree, although no key signature is also fine if the piece is atonal. The beginning of this is piece is kinda atonal... But the rest isn't. This should definitely be written using Bb minor key signature, even if you find it less readable (I don't even agree on this point since you would just need to use the alterations more carefully). You need an example in which this is done? Chopin Sonata N. 2, fourth movement (pages 17~19). There are a lot of alterations in the piece, and it doesn't even seem much "tonal" sometimes, but it's written with Bb minor key signature, since it ends pretty clearly in Bb minor.
This piece, on the other hand, doesn't have an ending, but it's clearly moving around Bb flat minor. So, at least in my opinion, it should be written with that key signature.
