OK. All easy songs, but they are nice.
__________________________________________

1. Great Deku Tree's Last Words... (Legend Of Zelda, The: Ocarina Of Time).

http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/nintendo/n64/deku.mid

Reasoning: This would sound pretty cool if we had all the strings (viola, violin and cello) do the undertone, and then foppy ein and I do the two melody parts.

__________________________________________

2. Valley of the Wind (Xenogears).

http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/sony/ps1/valley.mid

Reasoning: Apart from the xylophone (which foppy could synthesize on his keyboard, or we could even just not have it and it would sound ok), there is no percussion part. And there is like three woodwind parts playing the melody/harmony.

__________________________________________

3. Title Screen (Animal Crossing: City Folk).

http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/nintendo/wii/accf-titlescreen-v2.mid

Reasoning: This is easy and nice. We could just have an instrument cover the guitar part (I dunno, sax or flute). It has a nice underlying strings part, and has a couple parts playing which we can all cover. Main thing is, it's easy.
