Wow, so many responses, even West himself! Thanks West, that's a very generous offer! (Maybe we will finally solve the eternal mystery of that one passage in Traveling Minstrels

Unfortunately I don't have a good recording device either, I just use my ipad which ruins the tone. But I don't think we should let that stop us? I mean this is just for fun and not trying to be a perfect recording (however, phones do sound horrible so I would try the laptop instead)
And I think it would be so awesome to have us collaborate on a piece since we've been working together on the sheet music (only if you two want to, of course).
I play (just) the cello by the way, so I could play the bottom part.
Samonella wrote:** a flute-like instrument that you've probably only heard of if you've played The Legend of Zelda
Ha, this is too true for me, actually I thought for the longest time that the ocarina was a fictional instrument they made up for the game!
I don't know the range of the ocarina- would it be able to play the middle line?
Here's the main theme written in 3 parts, based of Samonella's "accurate" version. Any suggestions for changes? (maybe some stuff in the first few measures should be moved to other parts)
Edit: actually the first 3 notes would probably sound most awesome on the trumpet (an octave up)? Would that even be in the range?
(Oh, and Samonella: I LOVE how you added different instruments to the score!! The brass on the first 3 notes totally caught me by surprise!)
