It’s the 25th Anniversary of Super Mario Bros. and so I’ll dedicate this lucky 71st Blog to Mister Miyamoto and Koji Kondo―my two favorite Nintendos―and the tonal world they created and continue to inspire. SMB 1 has a samba, jazz bass, a waltz, and the most recognizable first measure of any song in the world. Click on the score, paesano.

Very interesting post, thanks!
I play drums, and have an electronic drumpad that can sample and has built-in effects (Roland SPD-S). One of the reasons I got it was so that I could use these very sounds! Picture the coin sound with a tape echo; I can trigger the Pause sound and the whole band pauses; the Time Warning sound and we all play faster; and the Game Over sound when we’re done!
