How to play Sweden on Saxophone

On this page, we'll be learning how to play Sweden from Minecraft on Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone or Soprano Saxophone!

One of the best-known tracks from the Minecraft soundtrack, Sweden was released on the album Minecraft – Volume Alpha in 2011. Like almost all the music from the game, it was composed by German musician Daniel Rosenfeld, better known as C418. The track's title may be a nod to Minecraft creator Markus 'Notch' Persson's home country.

Rosenfeld started working on Minecraft when it was in its very early stages, and the minimalist music and sound design were shaped by the limitations of the sound engine. The soundtrack in Minecraft is "repetitive by design", according to Rosenfeld, allowing players to concentrate on the gameplay.
