This sheet looks pretty cool! Just a few things to consider:

- This is a fast-paced hard rock tune, so it would probably make more sense to put the song in 4/4 instead of 2/2 and give the tempo as quarter=230. You also might want to consider removing that marcato marking and instead put something like "Rock groove" there. Also, feel free to place more accents and staccatos in places that might warrant them.
- m24 & 32, beats 3-4: I would rewrite this rhythm as a dotted 8th, 16th-tied-with-8th, 8th.
- Generally, watch out for playability; several parts of the sheet have parallel 4ths in 8th notes, which at this speed is very difficult to play. These would probably work better just as single notes.

Awesome work!

I like your Rock Groove idea a lot, definitely using that!
Also changed the rhythms and did take out those 4ths from the RH in measures 8 & 12. Should be a lot easier to make that jump now and they sounded a little muddy anyway hehe

While the arrangement looks and sounds great, there are still some playability concerns that need to be addressed that I came across as I play-tested this sheet:

- Parallel 5ths are insanely difficult to play, especially at this tempo. In places like m8, 12, 20, 24, etc., you'll want to make the LH part just octaves instead (which are actually easier to play). If you want you can change the current RH line in those measures to the harmony line (starting on C in m7 for example). If you do this, you'll want to keep it an octave up from where you currently have this line in the LH for playability.
- The offbeat notes, particularly in the B section and onward, are really, really important. It might be a good idea to add some extra chord tones on these parts (such as (RH) m25 beat 4.5, m27 beat 4.5, m29 beat 2.5, m30 beat 2.5, etc.)
- Even though the song is in a rock style, it wouldn't hurt to include some more variety in dynamics (perhaps a crescendo in m24 to a ff in m25; just some things to consider.)
- You might want to add some more articulations and accents past the A section.
