Help with Picking a Key Signature

in Piano

Hey, I am currently working on arranging a song by ear and currently the flats and sharps are all over the place. I need help with picking a key signature for the piece. The chord progressions goes like this and changes about every 2 bars:
Ab minor, C minor, Ab minor, C minor
B minor, Eb minor, B minor, Eb minor
C# minor, G# minor, C# minor, G# minor
D minor, A minor 7, Bb minor 7, E minor

Then it repeats from the beginning again with the Ab minor, C minor stuff. 

It is fine if it changes key signature every once in a while as this piece seems to modulate between keys quite a bit. I can't be changing key signatures every 2 bars though. What is your opinion on key signature? 

Here is the sheet music:

Composing Playoff Contest

A composing playoff is a contest with 3 rounds (sometimes more depending on how many people enter on the first round). The first round anyone can enter their pieces in. When at least 5 people enter the contest, a few members (selected by me) will judge the top 3 winners. In the 2nd round, the top 3 will then compose another piece for the round. Then the same judges will judge the top 2. Then in the 3rd round (the final round), the last 2 winning contestants will compose yet another piece. Then the judges will judge the 1 winner of the round. The judges will vote on the reward for the winner.

[s] BSG Lives on the Help Forum, Sources Confirm


It's common knowledge that BSG is one of the most active members on Musescore's help groups and help forums, but yesterday sources confirmed a new development: BSG actually lives on the help forum at 

"Yup, it's true," a sheepish BSG admitted. "I was on there so often, it just made sense for me to move there and handle the new discussions as they came." 

The MNGA staff would have liked to hold a longer, more in-depth interview with BSG, but he had to hurry home. There's a new discussion pending.
