Yoko Kanno - Memory (from Cowboy Bebop)

Grand Illusions 30

This is the leading D note and repeat section of 'Memory' from Cowboy Bebop. There's one note I had to make a consession on, the Db / C# at the start of measure 14, the song goes from Db5 to Db4 here, but there's only one Db on the 30 note music box. I played with some alternates, but couldn't find anything satisfying. This is a loop, so feel free to splice it into a loop. The leading D note should start up right after the last cord.

Yay! It looks like this melody can be played offline on a 30 note paper strip music box!

All you need to do is:

  1. Get a 30 note DIY Music Box Kit from our online store page if you don't have one
  2. Export the melody to PDF with paper strips, print it out and cut with scissors. Make sure to use the right paper size and set you printer scale to 100%, otherwise the size won't match. It's better when paper strips are thick, so if you are going to use thin office paper, we recommend you to glue two or three layers together. Another option is to laminate paper strips with a transparent duct tape
  3. Punch holes with a tool from the music box kit
  4. Enjoy your favorite melody playing on a real music box!
