To celebrate the upcoming release of our 106th 33 1/3 on Super Mario Bros., we’re pleased to bring you the fifth and final installment of Koji Kondo week by author Andrew Schartmann!
Who doesn’t love a Mario-themed party trick? And who doesn’t want to be the one performing that trick? The problem, of course, is that many of us who dream of wowing our friends with a ditty at the keyboard aren’t exactly modern-day Rachmaninovs. But fret not! Today’s your lucky day. I’m going to teach those of you with few piano chops how to play Koji Kondo’s Star Theme. Trust me, it’s easier than you think.
