make goat horns individual notes not full songs
currently the goat horn in the current bedrock beta works by playing a complete song when clicked. each goat horn can play 3 different sounds that when played together make a complete piece of music. I believe this functionality is a great feature to add to the game but i also feel it can be improved significantly. Minecraft typically introduces very simple features that players can use in the world to create gameplay much more deep and complex then the features themselves. look at Redstone or note blocks or building. this gives player an opportunity to express their individuality. no two Redstone contraptions or houses in Minecraft will look alike.
however when looking at the goat horn I don't see this emergent gameplay Minecraft is well known for. in the case of goat horn Minecraft players can expect ever goat horn song to sound like one of the few preset songs.
to fix this I propose that the original goat horns should not play full songs but instead individual notes that players can use to make their own songs much like players do with note blocks except goat horns will have continuous sound. the pitch will be controlled by the height the player is looking and each goat horn will act as a new instrument. copper horns will still keep the preset sound feature for players who don't want to make their own songs.
with these changes to the copper horn players will have an even deeper level of social interaction. imagine a Minecraft band playing note blocks and goat horns.
