Beautiful!

Great arrangement. Always been one of my favorite overworld themes of FF

Nice! But I had a few

Nice! But I had a few thoughts!

m. 20 - I don't think you should change octaves on the last note of the phrase. I like this way better.

m. 19

m. 30 - this is just the prettiest chord I've ever heard. By itself it's awesome. But how you use it here doesn't make a shit-ton of sense. Cause you're going from a C chord to G, but the first beat of m. 30 keeps the C and E from the C chord as a suspension, then it resolves on the second beat to B and D. But you use a B on the first beat, which confuses the idea of having a resolution. Maybe you could make something of it, but there's nothing like this in the rest of your arrangement, so it really sticks out. I would just make it simpler like this. It will definitely sound great as long as you let the G in the bass ring out as long as possible.

m. 28
  ^                    ^

m. 38 - Again you're going from a G chord to a C chord, and the melody at the end of 37 goes D->E->G, with the G on the downbeat of of 38, topping off a nice C chord. But instead of keeping a simple C chord on the downbeat, you go back to D with the middle voice, making a C-D-G chord. Which is pretty, don't get me wrong, but again it doesn't make a bunch of sense! In 37, you already moved away from D by moving to E on the & of 4 to prepare us for a C chord. By going back to D in 38 with the same voice, it feels like we're going backwards. If you want that D on the downbeat of 38, it would be easy to add a simple melody on top (which you will have to consciously push behind the actually melody when playing the piece) starting with B half way through 37, and moving step-wise up to E. This would reinforce the idea of dissonance on the downbeat to resolution on the 2nd beat that is seen with the melody in m. 30, and would move us better towards the G on top in m. 39. Win-win!

m.37

m. 51 - always remember that a 2nd inversion triad DOES NOT replace a root position or 1st inversion triad. In 51, you're trying to get a D minor chord, but we sure as hell don't hear a D chord with that A in the bass. Of course the movement from F->E->D sounds great in m. 50, but why not do it in an octave where you don't have to jump up a seventh to get the D in m. 51? Here's another win-win solution for you, where you can prevent that awkward jump and keep the D in the bass!

ah, alot to take in and thank

ah, alot to take in and thank you for the input :) aha, theory im still learning. havent quite put it forward with my arrangements so far and in the future imma find alot of stuff that i havent done or done wrong. x3
i did though try to stay true to the sheet music. in m.20 i found this octave change a little easier to my taste x3 but that was just me. its to all their own. and your input is nice! and the chord in M.30 is a piano chord that sounds pretty amazing on guitar x3 it was kinda hard to find a sustain for it. it was either that or remove a note to sustain a bass note, which i didnt want to do, because i wanted it true to sheet.
i was hoping most the octave changes i did wouldnt affect the sound, despite my bad ears, it caught a few people x3
i will consider the input you gave though. thank you c:

Wow, great comment. Welcome
