Duck Game – Music and How to Play It

In this guide, I will show you how to play instruments in the Duck Game.

The Basics

Let’s get down to business. In the last Major update (1.5), the ability to play musical instruments was added. Previously, it was also possible to play instruments, but only for owners of controllers. After update 1.5, you can play musical instruments on the keyboard too. This tutorial will only cover playing the keyboard. Let’s start with the fact that Duck Game has 5 types of musical instruments:

  • Keytar
  • Trombone
  • Saxophone
  • Trumpet
  • Drum Set

They are all different from each other and each has its own peculiarity. In order to start playing musical instruments, you first need to press the Jam button. You can find out the jam button in the game settings, in the main menu, at the top left in the edit controls section, at the very bottom.

The Notes

In the Duck Game, in order to play music, you need to press the keys to the rhythm. Even knowing the notes, but without the rhythm, the melody may not work. Each key corresponds to its own note. Our favorite game has only 13 notes. The higher the note, the higher the sound.

  • “1” is “C”.
  • “2” is a “C#”. # indicates that the pitch is raised by a semitone. That is, the difference between C and D – one tone, between “C” and C# – half a tone. There is also a “b” – flat. It does not denote an increase in pitch, but a decrease. That is, Db is equal in sound to C#.
  • “3” is “D”.
  • “4” is “D#” (you can also call it Eb).
  • “5” is “E”.
  • “E#” and “Fb” do not exist, since there is no black key on the keyboard between E and F.
  • “6” is “F”.
  • “7” is “F#” (Gb).
  • “8” is “G”.
  • “9” is “G#” (Ab).
  • “0” is “A” (this is where the octave begins. Octave is the range between two identical notes, but we don’t include the second repeated note, that is, from C – B. Remember, there was the note “C” and “C2”? So, this means that the note “C” is repeated, therefore, the following notes will be exactly the same as in the last octave. So, 11 notes between “C” and “C2”, including the first note “C” = 12. This is an octave.
  • “-” is “A#” (Bb).
  • “=” is “B”.
  • The “erase button” (Back) is “C2” at a higher octave. They sound the same with “C”, just “C” sounds lower, thicker, and “C2” – higher, thinner.

What is Transpose?

This section is very related to Notes section, so do not be too lazy to read the Notes section before reading this section. Some melodies have very many notes, and most importantly, the notes are in different octaves. An octave is a set of notes from C to B. There is a limitation in DG because the keyboard is not a piano. Because of this, only 13 notes can be used in Duck Game. From “C”(1) to the next “C2” (back). This is 1 whole octave and 1 note from the next one. But we need to play normal tunes with a limited Duck Game range (13 notes). Normal pianos have much more notes, but we play DG on keyboards. In order to play normal melodies we need to transpose the melody to the DG range. You ask – “How to do it”? Transposing is tricky and VERY confusing. I’ll try to explain. It is thanks to transposition that we can play melodies in Duck Game. Transpose is the transfer of a melody to the DG range. We need to transpose the melody so that all notes are in the DG octave (13 notes). Sometimes the melody is played in several octaves. Too low and too high notes we first transpose, and then we simply insert them into our range.

About Keytar

Let’s start! Keytar (keyboard + guitar). Is this a piano? Or a guitar? This is Keytar! To start playing musical instruments (this applies ONLY to the Saxaphone, Trombone and Keytar), you need to press the JAM button. The scheme is as follows: 1. Pick up a weapon, 2. Press the JAM button once. You press 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 – = and the erase button (arrow or Back) is the notes. You can read about the notes above. 1 is “C”. 2 is “C#”. 3 is “D”. 4 is “D#”. 5 is “E”.6 is “F”. 7 is “F#”. 8 is “G”. 9 is “G#”. 0 is “A”. _ is “A#”. = is “B”. “Erase button” (Back or arrow) is “C(2)”. Keytar is delightful not only because it is new, but also because of its sound. On the strafe button you can change its mode. In total, Keytar has 5 modes. 1. Typical 2. Flute 3. Low 4. Harmon 5. Hitting the table. Let’s move on!

About Trombone

The same as the saxophone, only it sounds lower. It also only has 13 notes. The trombone is a good place to start. If you play both trombone and saxophone at the same time, it turns out to be a good combo. I will tell you how to play 2 instruments at the same time later.

About Saxaphone

In general, everything is the same as Keytar, but you cannot change the modes (but it sounds good by itself). Some melodies play best on it. This is a real Classic in DG music. Saxaphone was added to the game a long time ago. Someone started to play the first normal melodies on it. I wonder who was the very first musician in the DG community? Most likely it was a player with a controller or a mod.

About Trumpet

For me personally, Trumpet is a specific tool. Talking about management. In order to play notes, you need to press the shot button, strafe and ragdoll. And it’s all! 3 notes?!?!?! So few. You can play it if you like. This instrument is very difficult to play and in my manual there will be no notes for it.

About Drum Set

I practically don’t know anything about drums, if I study more, I’ll write something about him. Controls: buttons up, down, left, right, shot, ragdoll and strafe.

Little Facts About Musical Instruments

Also, Keytar can be in different colors, but this does not affect the sound. By the way, using Power Holster, you can play two musical instruments at once. True, it is a little broken (Thanks for the update for such a new item). First you need to put on the Power Holster, then take the musical instrument, press HOME 1 time. We put our weapon on our back and press Home again, then take the second tool and that’s all. You can play 2 instruments at once. Any links with Saxaphone, Trombone and Keytar work. You can take at least 2 Saxaphones or 1 Trombone and 1 Saxaphone. Experiment and create your combos! 2 Keytars with different modes will work too. Instruments can also be gold, but this also does not affect the sound. There is also a pink Keytar, but this is also just a sprite. All instruments except the DrumSet can be combined using Tape, but after that you will be able to play ONLY 1 note by pressing the shot button. You can make 4, but why?

Music Practice

It takes a lot of practice to learn how to play well, BUT musicians are often killed. What to do? We need to make a map with musical instruments. To make a map, you need to go to the Level Editor. We go there and we can build what levels we need. There is a menu with which we will make our level.

Here’s what level I got:

Multiple Tunes

In this part I will write notes of different melodies. You can write to me or in the comments what to add, or even better, translate the melody into DG yourself. In brackets I will write what to press, and before the brackets how many times to press.
