For me, this means that the piece must fit on two pages, be easy to read (visually), and be easy enough to play that I can pick it up and play it at any time without having to do any maintenance practicing on it.
This is the first chance I've gotten to download your arrangement, Daniel. I have a few other arrangements, but this is the only one I could just read right through without having to stop and say "What?"
(I'd have to spend an extra minute looking at the section where it goes up to the 5th position, but that's no problem).
Kudos for getting it on two pages! They're printing out as I type and this is the arrangement that's going into my wedding book. Thank you! (You deserve a commission everytime I play this at a wedding).
There are only two suggestions I have. In measure 42, I think you meant to use the 1st finger for the G#. It's lots easier.
Also, I like the rhythm in the bass in measure 12 and see no reason why it can't be used in measure 13 as well. I'm used to hearing it that way and it's just as easy to play it there. (If you decide to change it, you already know that there are a couple of other spots where the exact same thing happens).
