"Frosty Wheel" (Kirby’s Epic Yarn) - arranged by Nebbles

Sheet music:

A peaceful piano solo from Kirby’s Epic Yarn! Kirby’s Epic Yarn has some downright soothing pieces that are among the most relaxing I can think of…

This piece is pretty straightforward to play - C major, 4/4, not too fast. Though, there are multiple voices, a few accidentals, and some interesting chords to make things interesting. It makes for a nice sight read since it’s very recognizable even if you take it slow. Enjoy the chilly but cozy vibe ^^

"Mii Channel" - arranged by Olimar12345

Sheet music:

...This one really needs no introduction. But did you know that Olimar did a pretty awesome piano arrangement of it? ;D

It's one of the arrangements I've always wanted to play, but never had an occasion to. Give it a shot, it's really cute xD

Ohoho you thought you'd be goin unscathed didn't you (hehe)

Just like my "One Melody, Five Three Styles" challenge, there would be a judging round for this too!
All your compositions will be judged by yours truly ;)

And the judging criteria are...

Structure (10 points)
I need to see a well-defined structure in your compositions -- introduction, climax, resolution and all. If you can, make your piece tell a story! And if you must, explain to me what that story is (main characters & events that said characters experience) uwu

Flow/Musicality (10 points)
Of course, your composition has to make musical sense (which kinda links to my point on structure). Remember, it's a composition, not a conglomeration! xD

Motivic Development (10 points)
Use The Mystery Riff in a musical way! Of course, feel free to add your own spin on it. This criterion is basically all about how you develop specific motifs in The Mystery Riff, and how tasteful you make it! ;D

Stylistic Appropriateness (10 points)
And speaking of tastefulness, any developments to the riff need to be stylistically appropriate. Of course that means you have to tell me the style/genre of your composition if I can't guess from first listen.

And last but not least... Community Vote (10 points)
Yep that's right, we're letting you play a part in the judging as well! Even if you did not participate in my challenge, you can still decide who you think the winner would be! A poll will be set up for you do vote on who you think did the best. :) Only non-participants will be allowed to vote though.
The voting period will last for up to 1 week after the challenge window ends. That means from 22 Aug to 29 Aug GMT!

All the best folks!

And yes, we can never get enough challenges ;)

Yooooooooo it's Taegan back again with another challenge!
This time, it'll be all about one thing -- composition!

So as you can see, I have provided you with a lead sheet (in the attachment), which I'll be referring to as 'The Mystery Riff'. Your challenge is this: write an EPIC instrumental composition based on The Mystery Riff! :D

Da rules include the following:
  • The Mystery Riff must be used exactly, in its original key, time signature and rhythm. You are, however, allowed to develop The Mystery Riff after you have used it once in its entirety.
  • Your composition can be at any tempo (since no tempo mark is specified).
  • Your composition can be in any genre/style. ;)
  • You can use as many (or few) instruments as you like! :)
  • Your composition must be between 2 and 4 minutes in length. If your composition is loopable, each loop should be no longer than 90 seconds in length.
  • Be as creative or technical as you like! However, your compositions need to be playable.

Everyone will be given around 2 months to work on this. To submit your wonderful pieces, simply DM me the pdf and mp3 of your composition. ;)

The deadline is temporarily set at 21 Aug 2020, 23:59 hrs GMT (do the time zone math to convert that to your local time zone!)

Have fun! uwu

"Midna’s Lament" (The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess) - arranged by Erich

Sheet music:

One of the flagship songs of Twilight Princess, Midna’s Lament is written as a simple piano piece. But its unorthodox arpeggios and use of modal sounds give it a solemn, eerie feel.

It’s a very simple piece to read - both the pitches and the rhythm. The left hand just keeps going away at the arpeggios and the right hand plays a simple melody. This piece is a bit tricky though, because of the unusual way the left hand arpeggios are written. Rather than a sweeping range of notes in the left hand, the notes are pretty tightly packed together with a bunch of second and third intervals. This means that you’ll need to rely on your 4th finger (!) a lot as well as make some pretty tight turns.

You can check out daj’s performance for fingering suggestions (although some that I use personally differ).

”Parting” (from PMD1: Rescue Teams)—arr. Bespinben!

Sheet music:

Wait, an easy Bespinben sheet? Whoa!

All that aside, this is one of Bespin’s earlier sheets that I’ve had the privilege or playing through quite recently. It’s a bit old and unrefined, but overall still a joy to play and just flashy enough for a good show ^^

Elaboration on my vote: If the liquid is being poured into the glass, it's half full. If the liquid is being taken from the glass (e.g. by consumption), then it's half empty.
