    • wew, a personal page thingy! ^^

For piano, two electric guitars, an electric drum, and drums

PKMN HGSS - "Ice Path/Dark Cave"
[MUS]

I searched "Ice Path" to see if anyone did something already, and then I saw this. Ooh. This is good stuff <3

Extra kudos for the bass part! It's like this growling Swinub that's trailing you throughout your walk (probably not the best expression for this). But your arrangement, I think, perfectly captures that "this place is frigid and creepy" feeling that the cave intends to create.

Mm, it's a pretty old arrangement, haha, but I think it could be made much more awesome with some variation in the drum rhythm. This is especially true at bar 15, because I'm pretty sure the game track adds in a bit of syncopation (i.e. offbeat accents) in the percussion part, giving it a driving rhythm that moves the music forward and creates contrast with the previous section. I think you could transfer the riff in the piano right hand to the left hand and let the right hand play something a little more awesome to elaborate on that change in rhythm (off-beat chords maybe!). After all, it kinda sucks if the piano player only uses one of his hands for the entire piece :p

Oh! And the piece is in C minor (three flats) too. Hope that helps tidy things up. :p

Awesome stuff! Bars 9- 16 = <3. I love the chugging chord and drum feel going on there as well as the repeated crotchet notes in the secondo part every two bars.

One thing that may (or may not idk) make it better is moving the primo part's left hand, which starts at bar 17, up an octave. It may obtain a more sonorous, melodic tone there. You could then put a simple bass part in the other piano which plays the root notes of the chords to fill the texture a bit. It seems a bit too low to be interacting with the melody above it in the way that it should...if that makes sense?

Anyhoo, good stuff :D

I personally am a big fan of treble and bass lines being really far apart. Beethoven did this a lot.
