"Koji Kondo is my hero! He composed the music for Super Mario Brothers and many other of my all-time favorite NES games, like Zelda." - Aaron
Here, Aaron plays the "Overworld" and "Underworld" theme music on marimba with four mallets. The music was transcribed, note for note, from the original Nintendo game.
Fun fact: The Nintendo Entertainment System was capable of producing only 4 sounds at a time: 3 tones + 1 noise channel. Here, Aaron plays the 3 pitched voices: melody, harmony, and bass.
Mallets used: Malletech LS17Z
