My arrangement is included in the attachment.

This is a piano arrangement for Sky Chase Zone from Sonic 2. The original tune is very chill and calming... A relaxing and nicely paced song. So I wanted to convey it a little more by taking advantage of my applied reverb, and playing the tune without any of my typical arpeggios. So I played it nice and slowly and added my own section in the middle of the song.

I used Logic Pro as my DAW. I used the Galaxy Vintage D library for the piano sound.

Really dreamy. Short but sweet. Not too interpretive but enough personalization to keep it fresh. Middle section is pretty. Nice performance too.

So this is nice and all. Relaxing, nice tune. Right sort of length for something this simple.

But seriously, this is too much reverb. Like, twice as much as needed to give the same effect without drowning it.

After consulting with my fellow joojes and after much personal reflection, I have decided that this is not a big enough deal for me to ask for changes, even though I think it would be better with less verb. You may pass.

excellent piano tone, wasn't as bothered by the reverb personally, but I agree that it is a bit heavy. excellent tone and sequencing. gonna echo Shariq here, the arrangement isn't too crazy or interpretive, but a nice adaptation with plenty of flourish, and the performance is beautiful. Nice work. :)

Yeah, I'm in the "too much reverb" camp, to the point where it adversely affected the arrangement and just needlessly made it sound lossy. That said, on the seesaw of the arrangement quality vs. the production quality, I'll live with it given the strength of the arrangement. Let's go.

Welcome aboard, Joe, keep 'em coming!
