Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) Sheet Music

Nintendo Entertainment System

The original Nintendo Entertainment System console didn't have a very powerful sound hardware. However, more than a weakness, that became one of its strengths: with so few resources available, composers were obliged to squeeze their brains and create the best melodies they could for their primitive sound chips. Some of the most memorable video game tunes ever composed were for NES games such as the three Mario Bros installments or The Legend of Zelda. They focused in developing a simple melody with very little or no underlying harmony at all and used to be very rhythmical. The sound those chips produced was very different to anything that had been heard before; limitations in memory didn't allow for a better sound quality, and the music notes had to be generated by the hardware. This fact, far from reducing the appeal of this music, gave it a distinctive character which established video game music as a genre.
