Thanks for all the people who Diamonded this! I really appreciate it. Unfortunately I didn't make it Into the top 50 :( Anyway as a thanks I have put the map download link on this blog! :)
Today I will be telling you how to make Smoke on the Water with Noteblocks and a Minecart Track. It takes about half an hour if you're good at noteblocks and a bit longer for beginners. Be sure to watch the video above to see what the end product should look like. Lets start!
Use Creative Mode! Superflat recommended for Beginners!
Step 1 Create a Minecart Booster. You'll need: A basic block (dirt in this tutorial), A Button and powered rail.
Place a powered rail on the ground. Place dirt 2 blocks to the side of it. Then place the button on the dirt block on the side facing the rail. It should look like this:
You'll need: All 3 types of rails, Redstone Dust, Dirt, Noteblocks and a Minecart.
Build a straight track about 56 blocks long.
These are the chords that you will use:
E- E, G#,B
G- G, D, B
A- A, C#, E
A#- A#, D, F
Next to the Chord names there are the notes which make up the chord.
For each chord you will have 2 of the 1st note, 1 of the 2nd note, 1 of the 3rd note and the bass note will also be the 1st note. For Example An E chord will be:
Piano (Dirt): E, E, G#, B
Bass (Wood): E
Look at this diagram (via Minecraft Wiki) for the number of right clicks needed for each note:
For piano notes place the Note block on dirt or air. For bass notes place the noteblocks on Wooden Planks.
Now arrange the blocks and notes like this:
-Noteblocks next to a red square are bass noteblocks (place wooden planks under them)
-The track next to the blue square is where the minecart should start
-Redstone Lamps are optional
Step in the minecart, press the button and there you go.
