Trouble with the audio sample?

Most Final Fantasy titles in the series have a regular battle theme, most often affiliated with a generic random encounter.

A recurring feature in the earlier titles is that each battle theme starts almost identically, with the same two measures of eighth notes repeated in the bass clef twice before the main melody of the piece joins it in the treble clef in its third measure.

AppearancesEdit
