Themes from the

SUPER MARIO BROTHERS


Video Game Series

Koji Kondo
Arranged by The Blindfolded Pianist
Transcribed by Andrew Owen

This transcription is of a video recording of the The Blindfolded Pianist, playing the various themes of
the Super Mario Brothers Series. During the first theme, he is blindfolded. From the second theme onward,
he is not blindfolded. The video was provided by the Internet Web site, www.gprime.net. Due to the poor
recording quality, some inaccuracies may be present. Naturally, there are simple errors in the performance
such as the second note in measure 5. Regardless, I notated it as it was played, adding possibly missed notes
in parentheses and disregarding his minor changes in tempo. Andrew Owen

*This trill is to start on the upper note, E b.


**I believe the intended note here to not be B b, but A.
***I have notated as close as I could the actual notes that the performer played in the actual staff.
In the Ossia staff, I have notated the progression from the original version of the theme. Owen

*It was possibly the pianist's intention to hit the notes simultaneously at a sixteenth note speed.
**The pianist skipped the third beat, possibly to not have to play the F to G below it. Do what is possible to play those low notes,
but you may omit the low F.
