Most famously remembered from the overworld to the first Zelda game, this is the main theme to my favorite game series.

It's pretty good!, you just need to learn how to and when to use the percussion and add more divisi to the strings.
Celesta and small metalic mallets can add "color" or "bright" to some parts of your songs, if you mix this with the depth of the timpani you'll get a very nice efect, try bot to use the tubular bells a lot, yes I know they sond very cool!, but if you hear a bell lots of times it gets kind of boring with the time, if you want to add more epicness you can make a response with rhytmic phrase with the low brass and horns sections, also, very important, try to avoid the predominating use of sustained notes and make the notes "dance" rhytmically hope you get my point! :)

>:L i didnt like it

MF-Greth responds:

You could at least make the attempt to be constructive with your criticism.

I loved what you did with it for the most part, but was expecting a new louder main layer after a few seconds in. It was lovely in of itself but I expecting the theme to be more impactful, probably just bias toward the original.

MF-Greth responds:

Nah, this is like the original title screen, that was sort of this calm, dignified epic.
