List of games where the player plays music
Games in this list require the player to interactively play music on an in-game instrument. For example, in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64), the player must play various tunes on the in-game ocarina using buttons on the Nintendo 64 controller to play different notes.
|The 7th Guest (CDI, DOS, W32)||The player must play a game of follow the leader on an in-game piano by clicking various keys.|
|Brain Age 2: More Training in Minutes a Day! (NDS)||You are supposed to play Piano Player every day and accompany a randomly chosen classical or folk song using the stylus. The score scrolls by and, in easy mode, the note names.|
|Hugo: Wintergames (W32)||Rather ghostlike, the organ plays 8 bars of Jingle Bells by itself. Every 4 bars, it pauses and you have to click the keys yourself. The moment you hit the wrong one, someone slams all 5 keys at once and you have to repeat the half.|

|To be on Top (AST, C64)||First, you compose a song by choosing existing patterns and sounds only, but once you reach the top 3 of the charts, you must play the drums on a TV show for 2 minutes using the joystick to keep up.|
|Ultima V: Warriors of Destiny (A2, AMI, AST, C64, C128, DOS, FMT, PC88, PC98, X68)||You have to play the song Stones on a harpsichord using your PC keyboard.|

- Category: Games Where the Player Plays Music
Please do not include games where the player has no control over the music that an in-game instrument plays. For example, in The Legend of Zelda (NES), Link plays a recorder, but the player has no control over which notes are played. Also, don't include games just because the player has the ability create music on non-musical devices. For example, if a game lets you enter numbers into a touch-tone phone, you can technically play "music" with the numbers, but this is not intended.
