In your future PA updates, it would be nice if you could include the YouTube videos AND the Dropbox links. It makes it annoying to go find them in the first post.

Sure. Actually, you just made me think of an easy way to do that, completely destroying the reason that I don't. I'm gonna go edit the other posts to also have that.

Done and done. You should check out the second page of the thread. I added videos for the first four arrangements of mine. I apparently never put videos for them. Now onto what Dekka said to do!

A nice little remix(?) of the Toad House theme from Super Mario Bros. 3. That's right, today I bring to you, The Ranger's Cabin! The LH is all wonky (because Notepad doesn't let you put in clef changes), but I have someone who might be able to help when he gets the time.

Now a song that sounds tough to arrange, but really isn't. We have a game that is not on site yet (again). Gooper Blooper Battle Boogie!

And now for my first replacement! It's definitely not submission-ready yet, but it's way better than the crap that's already on site. The arrangement on site isn't bad, it's just not accurate. And missing a whole section of the song. Anyway, Fever!

I actually started this months ago, almost finished the first section of the song, then procrastinated because it was tougher than it seemed. I went months without working on this. But now it's done!... ish...

Looks good, but here's some stuff to fix:

- When you have lots of chromatic half steps like this, it's better to write them with different note names. For example, in the bassline do A# to B instead of Bb to B. And later in the RH, like in m11, use D# to E instead of Eb to E.

- In m6, write beat 3 with F#s and C#s because it's moving chromatically upwards.

- In m10, write the LH part in the treble clef because the amount of ledger lines you have right now is far too many and it makes sight-reading it difficult. Also, replace the first 2 16th rests in the LH in that measure with an 8th rest. For the RH, use 8va for just that measure as well because the amount of ledger lines there is also a lot.

- Redistribute the measures in the last 2 systems because having one empty measure like that taking up an entire system looks awkward.

I can do everything except for this. Notepad doesn't let you mess with measures. I would have done it already if I could.

You can send me the file and I could redistribute the measures for you if you haven't gotten it fixed already.

Re: ThatHiddenCharacter's Arrangements - NEW! Replacement! Collab!
« Reply #56 on: June 15, 2017, 02:54:52 AM »

And we have two new songs! One is a collab with E. Gadd Industries and the other is another replacement! We got Dreamy Mushrise Winds co-op and Dodo's Coming!! replay. While Dodo's Coming!! didn't need a replacement as badly as Fever did, it still needed one.

These look neat! Here's a bunch of feedback:

Dreamy Mushrise Winds

- m9 and any others like it should look like this:
Spoiler
[close]
- m11 and any others like it should look like this:
Spoiler
[close]
- m20 LH - remember to beam those 2 8ths on beats 1.5 and 2.5 so they match the RH
- m49, 51, and 53 RH - those tied 8ths should just be quarter notes.
- m51 - that keychange needs a double barline


Dodo's Coming!!

- Key is c minor, not g minor.
- Since the C and Db in m8 are right next to each other, it would be better to write this as a trill with a flat sign. I don't think you can notate this in Notepad, so if you need help, I or someone else could edit that in for you.
- Since this song is in 6/8, you can replace those tied 8th notes in m9, 11, etc. with quarter notes. Actually, since these notes are short in the original, you should just make them an 8th note followed by an 8th rest. The tied 8th and quarter in places like m10 and m12 should be a dotted quarter.
Spoiler


In 6/8 time, its important to remember that each beat is a dotted quarter note, so the beat groupings for 8th notes should be 3 per beat.
[close]
- You should make all the offbeat dyads in the LH staccato to more closely match the original, like in m9-14, etc.
- If you're going to be splitting up dotted quarter rests into a quarter and 8th rest, the quarter should always come first:
Spoiler
For example, in m13 and other places like it:

[close]
- m15 RH - The first D should be a G.
- m17 - The tied 8ths should be just a quarter.
- m18, the note on beat 2 should be a lot shorter; just an 8th note followed by 2 8th rests will work fine. Also, there should be a low F# and G in the LH underneath the D and Eb.
Spoiler
[close]
- m19, there should be a grace note An leading to the beginning Bb.
- m21, 23, 25, 29, 31 - remove the tie and 2nd 8th note from all these measures so it matches the part from earlier:
Spoiler
[close]
- m22, 26, 30 - the tied 8th and quarter should just be a dotted quarter
- m21-26, 29-32 LH - The accompaniment changes rhythm slightly to this:
Spoiler
[close]
- m27-28 should look like this:
Spoiler

I moved that Bb to the RH instead because it's part of the main melody, which continues in the RH after that.
[close]
- m32: since you're moving that melody down to the LH, you should put it in a separate layer and use the Smart Shape tool to draw a line showing the path of that voice. I'm not sure if you can add the line in Notepad, but like I said earlier, me or anyone else I'm sure would be glad to fix that for you. Also, the Bn there should be a Cb
- m33-37 are off a little. This part is really tricky, so I don't really blame you for this lol. This is how I would write it, though the rhythm is still very unclear, particularly in m34:
Spoiler
[close]
- For the very last system, I would put m36 along with m37 since it looks really awkward. Again, I know you can't do this so I would be happy to or you could ask someone else who's willing to do that.

In general, just be careful about the note and rest groupings in compound time signatures like 6/8.

Awesome stuff here, it was fun taking a look at it.

Thanks for all the feedback! I went ahead and fixed everything you said for Dreamy, and I've updated the files in my PAT. I'm sending THC a copy as well
