One day I wanted to make a music box.
It seemed a pretty simple task with a crystal clear objective: make a music box that, upon opening its lid, would play a tune called "Forever." But there was no word from anywhere telling me that "Foreverbox" wouldn't be complete until over two years after I began. I was never told of the obstacles I would face. There were no clear directions, no resources I could refer to for guidance in building it.
The point of this introduction is that I wanted everyone who is willing to make a music box to be able to have the resource I wish I could have had. Going through the project alone wasn't easy, but it doesn't have to be harder than it needs to be, especially when someone's already done it. So here it is: How I Made My Custom Music Box Tune.
