Minecraft Note Blocks - Don't Stop Me Now
May 19, 2011
The original, and the video that led to this song being featured in MC Note Block Studio. If you see another video with this song, it's probably a duplicate generated using my planner file and Note Block Studio. Not much I can do about it, oh well.
My first attempt at translating a song into MC note blocks. I divided up the blocks into three layers: vocals, rhythm/backup vocals, and drum/bass. Vocals are on the top above me, drum is the on the bottom left, and bass is on the bottom right. The layer you see in the video is the rhythm layer. If you'll notice everything seems to be a bit more "structured" once the fast part kicks in; that's because I was still trying to figure out what the hell I was doing in the intro.
I'm not a musician so I know it's not 100% perfect and there's probably a couple of stray notes here and there I didn't pick up on, but I think it came out pretty good. For those inquiring, this was a bit less than a day of work spread out over a couple of months. I wouldn't interpret that as too much free time, but that's just me.
The entire thing is over 3,000 music blocks. As for tools I used:
Terrain editing - MCEdit
Inventory editing - LolEditor
Song planning/sequencing - Minecraft Song Planner (now Minecraft Note Block Studio). The file I created for it is now an example file bundled with the program (thanks Davve).
Recording - Fraps

Looks like both were taken down, so the song file included in Note Block Studio will have to suffice, sorry.
I don't think I'll make a habit out of making songs in MC but this is one I really wanted to see done. Enjoy.
