Not a question about the sheet (or directed at you since you didn't create the title information for this game), but shouldn't Yooka-Laylee be under the Banjo-Kazooie section on site?

Ah, good question! Yooka-Laylee is independent from the Banjo-Kazooie series. It is technically created by the same people, but completely different companies (Banjo being Rare and Yooka being Playtonic). The only similarities is that it is a 3D platformer with a duo protagonist (like Banjo-Kazooie).

Two things:
 - In M.22, that 8va gets really close to the deep notes in M.23. I'd recommend either making it shorter to wrap around the notes it's actually affecting, or remove it entirely, considering you're letting the left hand notes go that low in the following measures anyway.
 - From M.39-46, would it sound nice to put some arpeggio articulations onto the RH chords? I'm hearing a bit of that in the original song.

Wonderful sheet. Can't wait to see more.

Well, it's not uncommon for a game in a series to be developed by a different developer. We also have a spiritual successor listed under the original series on site: Bravely Default.

Anyway, I'm not trying to argue a point about whether or not it should technically be classified as part of the same series (since you clearly know a lot more about these few games than I do); rather I just imagine that someone visiting the site looking for Yooka-Laylee sheet music would be more inclined to check the Banjo section rather than Other. But I could be wrong. :P

It's different when the notes are in octaves than when they are alone; they're easier to read, which is why there is only an 8vb in M. 22. I could just shorten it, but it's not really that huge of a deal.

- From M.39-46, would it sound nice to put some arpeggio articulations onto the RH chords? I'm hearing a bit of that in the original song.
I thought of that too, but they are too uneven. Those pizzicato stringed instruments don't "roll" up or down, but they are all played at roughly the same time while slightly off. I articulated that with a staccato.

Well, it's not uncommon for a game in a series to be developed by a different developer. We also have a spiritual successor listed under the original series on site: Bravely Default.
Oh, ok. I didn't know that. It really doesn't matter to me haha.

I guess so. I didn't know spiritual successors were classified under the game series they succeed. Really doesn't matter to me either way. Anyone else have any thoughts?

It may be a spiritual successor, but it is not part of the same franchise, which is how the sheets are organized on the site.

Try to do everything; you're bound to succeed with at least one.
