How to Make ACNH Island Tunes

The game by Nintendo known as Animal Crossing New Horizons or ACNH gives the ability to you to be the architect of your own island. If you have so much creativity, it is the perfect game for you to play.

Every time you speak with one of the residents on your island in the game, a version of a short song will be heard. This song is known as the island tune.
