    ABOUT THIS FAQ:
    
    ==============================================================================
    
    This FAQ talks about the ten Ocarina songs learned in the LEGEND OF ZELDA:
    MAJORA'S MASK. They are story relevant and gameplay relevant in some cases.
    
    The FAQ will talk about where you find the songs, when you find them, what
    they are used for, how to play them, and any requirements if any.
    
    It does not cover extra "out of game" songs that some FAQs are written for.
    While a little redundant considering how relatively minor the songs are (and
    that they can be referenced within the menu itself), the FAQ's purpose is
    to show the differences in control between the various versions of Ocarina of
    Time that have been released, and to serve as a reference tool for those who
    are interested in where/when/what the songs are.
    
    The controls for the Nintendo 64 version, Gamecube port, and Wii Virtual
    Console version are all noted.
    
    ==============================================================================

    within the brackets listed below.

    CONTROLS [CTR]
    
    ==============================================================================
    
    The controls for playing the Ocarina in game are simple. You equip it to one
    of the item slots, and when using it, you will go into a mode where you can
    push the C-buttons, as well as other buttons, to control it.
    
    The game's songs do not require you to change the pitch of the notes at all,
    so the FAQ will not go too in depth on buttons you do not need to worry about.
    
    As the game has come out on the Nintendo 64, Wii Virtual Console, and 
    Gamecube, the respective controls are listed below. I will stick with the
    N64 controls for simplicity.
    
    Nintendo 64:
    
    UP C BUTTON    = Up
    RIGHT C BUTTON = Right
    LEFT C BUTTON  = Left
    DOWN C BUTTON  = Down
    A BUTTON       = A
    B BUTTON       = Cancel
    CONTROL STICK  = Change pitch
    
    Gamecube:
    
    C STICK UP    = Up
    C STICK RIGHT = Right
    C STICK LEFT  = Left
    C STICK DOWN  = Down
    A BUTTON      = A
    B Button      = Cancel
    
    X BUTTON      = Right
    Y BUTTON      = Left
    Z Button      = Up
    
    Wii (Virtual Console)
    
    -If using the Gamecube controller, it is the same controls as "Gamecube"
    -Classic Controller's right stick is used to substitute for the "C stick/C
     Directional Pad")
    
    The Notes: (N64/GC/Wii)
    
    Up    = ^
    Down  = v
    Left  = <
    Right = >
    A     = A
    
    You can see where they correspond below:
    
    ==============================================================================
                                         UP
    ==============================================================================
                                    LEFT
    ======================= RIGHT ================================================
                     DOWN
    =======   A   ================================================================
    
    These positions are shown when you enter the notes in the game anyway. No
    worries.

    The format is as follows:

    Notes: How to play the Song
    
    Where: Where do you find/learn it
    When: When can you find/learn it
    What: What does the song do?
    
    Note: All songs can be reviewed in the menu of the game.
    
    Note: While they are "Ocarina" songs, the instruments will vary depending
          on what transformational mask you are wearing (Deku/Zora/Goron). But
          the notes are the same regardless.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    [001]
    
    SONG OF TIME
    
    > A v > A v
    
    (RIGHT A DOWN RIGHT A DOWN)
    
    Where: Story Event, when the Ocarina of Time is acquired, the song comes with
           it in the events that play. Atop the Clock Tower.
    When: When you get to the top of the Clock Tower for the first time and face
          the Skull Kid. It is a requirement to proceed in the story, and cannot
          be missed.
    What: The song is very important. It allows you to travel back to the first
          day at the expense of your money and items (not weapons, but ammo for
          them), as well as resetting all events that occur. It also allows you
          to save as you start at the first day again. Obviously a vital song. It
          saw less significant gameplay use in the prequel, Ocarina of Time.
    
          There are two other versions of the same song used for gameplay purposes
          in Majora's Mask, listed below. They are playable the moment you get
          the Ocarina, but are NOT listed on your sub menu. The Scarecrow in the
          Astral Observatory talks about them, but beyond that you don't get much
          of an indication for these very useful songs!
    
    [00A]
    
    SONG OF DOUBLE TIME
    
    > > A A v v
    
    (RIGHT RIGHT A A DOWN DOWN)
    
    What: This song forwards time to the next phase. By "phase" I mean "Dawn of
          the Second Day" or "Night of the First Day", it forwards you every half
          day, but cannot be used after the "Night of the Final Day" for obvious
          reasons. It is useful if there are certain events that take place on
          the third day that need to be forwarded too, or just forwarding to event
          specific times in general.
    
          The song itself is just the Song of Time with every note played twice.
    
    [00B]
    
    INVERTED SONG OF TIME
    
    v A > v A >
    
    (DOWN A RIGHT DOWN A RIGHT)
    
    What: This song slows time down, so the game clock goes half as fast. This is
          useful for prolonging a three day run, obviously. The time marker will
          change color (Blue being slowed down, Green being normal). To speed time
          back up, simply play the song again, and it will resume the normal
          speed. Great for exploration/playing Mini-games and just for general
          use.
    
    [002]
    
    SONG OF HEALING
    
    < > v < > v
    
    (LEFT RIGHT DOWN LEFT RIGHT DOWN)
    
    Where: Inside the Clock Tower, from the Happy Mask Salesman
    When: After travelling back in time using the Ocarina the first time (right
          after the above Song of Time is learned, pretty much). The Happy Mask
          Salesman will teach you this song to turn you back.
    What: A Song mostly for acquiring various masks throughout the game. The
          soothing melody is used to acquire the three main masks of the game, as
          well as being in other events.
    
          Also, if you chop up a sign, you can play the Song of Healing to
          fix it right back up! A minor, but still fun, fact.
    
    [003]
    
    SONG OF STORMS
    
    A v ^ A v ^
    
    (A DOWN UP A DOWN UP)
    
    Where: Ikana Graveyard, beneath the Grave on Day 1, taught by "Flat"
    When: You need to have access to Ikana Graveyard, as well as the Captain's
          Hat, so you may go below the Grave on the first day.
    What: The song has various uses. For one it counters the "Melody of Darkness"
          that is played by "Sharp", and is needed in order to proceed. The song
          is also used to allow Magic Beans to grow when planted in soft soil
          around Termina.
    
          If you happen to get cursed by a Blue Bubble (you will know, as it will
          tell you), the Song of Storms can be played to counter the effect.
    
    [004]
    
    EPONA'S SONG
    
    ^ < > ^ < >
    
    (UP LEFT RIGHT UP LEFT RIGHT)
    
    Where: Romani Ranch, taught by Romani (must be earlier than Day 2)
    When: When you are able to use the Powder Keg as a Goron, you can clear the
          road to Romani Ranch (At Milk Road) to enter before Day 3. You can then
          do the training session with her, and she will teach you Epona's Song.
    What: It is used to call Epona around Termina Field.
    
          Like in Ocarina of Time, the song can also be used around cows to fill
          an empty bottle with milk!
    
    [005]
    
    SONG OF SOARING
    
    v < ^ v < ^
    
    (DOWN LEFT UP DOWN LEFT UP)
    
    Where: In Woodfall, taught by Kaepora Gaebora (the Owl)
    When: When you first reach Woodfall, and the Deku Palace, you are able to
          acquire this song when you reach the Owl Statue that sits near the
          palace.
    What: The song allows you to warp to any other "activated" (Owl statues that
          you have hit with a sword and have their wings spread) Owl Statues all
          around Termina. An owl statue sits in a lot of the vital places, and
          are great time savers to warp to in a game where time is the essence.
    
          Also, in dungeons, the song warps you to the dungeon entrance.
    
    [006]
    
    SONATA OF AWAKENING
    
    ^ < ^ < A > A
    
    (UP LEFT UP LEFT A RIGHT A)
    
    Where: Deku Palace, taught by the Monkey
    When: When you first reach Deku Palace, and find your way into the Monkey's
          cell. It is a story requirement, and is required to enter the first
          temple.
    What: The song is used to raise Woodfall Temple out of the water. It is also
          used for other events, such as awakening Captain Keeta, or a sleeping
          Deku Scrub in the Swamp Spider House.
    
          It can be used to get a Piece of Heart in a hidden grotto in Termina
          Field. The one with the one giant Statue and three smaller ones. The
          other two songs, Goron Lullaby and New Wave Bossa Nova, also work to
          get this heart.
    
    [007]
    
    GORON LULLABY
    
    A > < A > < > A
    
    (A RIGHT LEFT A RIGHT LEFT RIGHT A)
    
    Where: In two parts, the first half is taught by the Goron Elder, and the
           second half is played when playing for the young Goron.
    When: When you reach Snowhead and the Gorons there, this song is required to
          enter Snowhead Temple, and so cannot be missed.
    What: The song is used to put the Big Goron outside of Snowhead Temple to
          sleep.
    
          It can be used to get a Piece of Heart in a hidden grotto in Termina
          Field. The one with the one giant Statue and three smaller ones. The
          other two songs, Sonata of Awakening and New Wave Bossa Nova, also work
          to get this heart.
    
    [008]
    
    NEW WAVE BOSSA NOVA
    
    < ^ < > v < >
    
    (LEFT UP LEFT RIGHT DOWN LEFT RIGHT)
    
    Where: The Marine Research Lab in the Great Bay Coast, taught by the newborn
           Zora
    When: After you recover all seven Zora eggs and bring them to the Research
          Lab, the newborn Zora will line up as musical notes. You can learn it
          by pulling out the guitar when that happens. It is a story event, so
          it cannot be missed.
    What: The song is used to restore Lulu's voice, and is used to gain access
          to the Great Bay Temple.
    
          It can be used to get a Piece of Heart in a hidden grotto in Termina
          Field. The one with the one giant Statue and three smaller ones. The
          other two songs, Goron Lullaby and Sonata of Awakening, also work to
          get this heart.
    
    [009]   
    
    ELEGY OF EMPTINESS
    
    > < > v > ^ <
    
    (RIGHT LEFT RIGHT DOWN RIGHT UP LEFT)
    
    Where: Ancient Castle of Ikana, taught by Igos du Ikana
    When: When you complete the Ancient Castle, the King teaches you this after
          the battle. It is required to enter the fourth and final temple, so it
          cannot be missed.
    What: It creates a statue of Link in his form when playing it, with a maximum
          of four statues (Link, Deku Link, Goron Link, Zora Link), that can be
          moved around, and put on panels as needed. The statue will appear in
          the place Link was standing when playing the song. No more than one of
          the same form can be made into a statue at a time. So you cannot have
          two Deku Link statues, the second one will make the first disappear.

    When: Right after the completion of Woodfall Temple, Link is taken to one
          of the giants, who teaches him the song. It cannot be missed.
    What: The song is used for a significant story event, after the four giants
          are gathered, it is to be played atop the Clock Tower on the night of
          the Final Day, and gives access to the Moon. It can be played without
          the four, but fails as all four are needed.

    Short and simple, but I'm taking suggestions if there is anything else that
    needs to be added.
    
    I know there are some secrets I missed, as to what some songs can also be
    used for, and I would appreciate it if someone emails me those details.
    
    If you want to help, naming all the instances the "Song of Healing" is used,
    or other songs that effect events aside from the main quest, I will add them
    and credit you for the information! Also more information regarding all the
    small secrets that come with the "Song of Storms" would be useful.
    
    If you have any other ideas as to what to add to this FAQ that would be
    relevant to using the Ocarina in Majora's Mask, please email me!
    
    I'll be sure to give credit where credit is due!
    
    Also, any errors you see, or anything even as small as a typo, please email
    me! I'll fix it as quickly as I can.
    
    Thanks for reading, cheers!
