[2A03] - Hearthcliffe's Rage is Everywhere

Okay. I decided to write a final stage song for my indie Touhou -style shmup called Chuhou Joutai . There's eight stages in the main game. I wrote this tune in a style of Hearthcliffe getting angry after Driller (the titular character) defeats him. Of course, this is before the final boss, so I wrot...

[N163] Selene's Light - Touhou 4: Lotus Land Story

I'm proud to bring another PC-98 cover here. Sure this was what Touhou 4: Lotus Land Story might have sounded like if it came out in 1988.

Re: [2A03] - The Annoying Little Tsundere

How I compose my songs is simple: just create one melody that repeats twice and switches to a new melody after. Oh boi we're doing exactly the same thing! Glad I'm not alone. The way composers compose music is you have to learn how to handle motifs. Koji Kondo, who composes for the Super Mario seri...

Re: [2A03] - The Annoying Little Tsundere

Like I said, some fans felt the music for the game needed to sound more Touhou -like. I've been watching a bit of 8-Bit Music Theory just to see how the music for the Super Mario and Sonic series is composed. How I compose my songs is simple: just create one melody that repeats twice and switches to...

[2A03] - The Annoying Little Tsundere

Heya drillers! I was having difficulty trying to come up with ideas for this song. This is basically the follow-up to the stage music, Dusky Eclipse (http://forums.famitracker.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3578), and if you haven't listened to that, I recommend you listen to that first and then come b...

[2A03] - Dusky Eclipse

Heya drillers with another original by The Drillimation Guy! This is a song intended to appear in my indie shmup, Chuhou Joutai . Although my other songs weren't that great, this one should be better. It's longer than the others. This song is also intended to be a stage theme, and of course, you'll ...

[2A03] - Rusty - I'll Destroy Your Mind (Castlevania 1 Style)

Hey drillers!

Back to making covers, I covered the boss theme from the game Rusty for the PC-98. This song might sound good for a shmup game, but still for a Castlevania game.

Re: How do I make catchy melodies?

I often recognize the leitmotifs of Theme of Eastern Story and some melodies of Love-Colored Magic. His more common note patterns such as the one I listed above and a large majority of his songs are written in A Major.

Re: How do I make catchy melodies?

I've made a lot of covers of themes from Touhou games, I was just simply testing them to see how it would sound on the Namco C140, which is a sound chip found in the Namco System 2 arcade board.
