Hi there, fullmetalpianist! Welcome to NSM!

To start out, I'd like to say thank you for taking on this replacement! It was needed.

However, before your sheet goes any further, I'd take a look at the following Formatting Guidelines. No offense, but your sheet doesn't look much like the ideal NSM sheet. Not to worry, though; we can help with that! Even better, you seem to already have a great grasp on arranging for piano, which is an awesome factor!

Have any questions? Ask away! We're here to help!

Yeah, for starters, the sheet music font looks like the one I see for jazz music, not the typical font.

Semi-personal preference on my end, but I prefer no key signature for this piece.

This piece does need a replacement fairly badly, though...(but not as badly as some other Kirby pieces...I should get going on my Kirby transcriptions...)

Oh, yea, that's what it was!

Now I'm picturing a jazz remix of Marx's Theme.

For ease of checking your arrangement against the original, please include a YouTube video or something of the original song in the future:


OK, now some feedback to start regarding the arrangement itself:

- The music font should be either Maestro or Engraver and the text font should be Times New Roman.
- "Composed by" and "Arranged by" shouldn't have colons (also make sure this information is right aligned).
- The Arranger name on the sheet and on your forum profile don't match; they should.
- The first system should be indented by 0.5. The "Pno." text for every subsequent system should be removed.
- In a song like this (and because of the way you arranged it), I would put the tempo as 8th note=188. It's a bit awkward to count in quarters when the time signature is usually always over 8 and changes frequently.
- Instead of including 2 loops in the sheet, you could add a D.S. to m3 in m34 and remove the 2nd loop entirely.
- The Copyright info at the bottom should just be plan, not italicized.
- I would put notate the key as F minor instead of C minor.
- This is more of a personal preference than anything else, but have you considered doubling the values of everything and making all the time signatures over 4 instead of over 8? You don't have to do this of course, but I'd suggest trying it out.

I'm not sure whether or not you use Notepad, so if you need help making any of these changes let me or someone else know and we can get this taken care of.

Oh, and the song title is, "Meddlesome Marx".

If you'd like, I can get you a template file to copy and paste your existing notes into!

I don't usually use notepad, I use sibelius. I only got notepad to create a mus. file for ninsheetmusic.

Fullmetal, Static and I will help you get a formatted sheet as soon as we can. I'll also send you a template via Personal Message so you can use it on further arrangements.

Any more questions? Ask away! :)

Do you need the full version of Finale to copy time signature changes? I tried to find a way but nothing is working. Might as well give up now aye?

Archiving this for the time being due to inactivity. You're welcome to resubmit after all the formatting gets ironed out.
