I couldnĀ“t resist!! I personally like this one a lot! Although it can be improved, I think it sounds great!
What do you guys think?

I added both .mp3 and .ogg files for whoever wants to listen to it.

Not bad!  I think one thing that jumps out right away is the crash cymbals.  Definitely a bit too loud!

Mix sounds alright to me, although the vibes or marimba or whatever only in the right ear bugged me, since that's the most constantly going thing and there's nothing to balance it out in the left ear, it was kinda nagging. I felt unbalanced listening to it :p  I'd say try centering it or panning it back and forth from right to left.

As for the song itself, it's a great rendition of Goron theme, more of a OoT feel than TP- although the two are almost the same, TP's has a slightly less cheery, Caribbean feel. I'm pretty sure the first note in the vibes melody there is lowered a half step or two, which changes the way it feels a whole bunch.

I bring that up because there's a big difference in tones that the different games' music conveys. With the more major melody, OoT has a much brighter tone when you're in Goron village. It feels like a party. TP feels much more foreboding and less friendly, and we should consider what kind of tone we want to convey in our game. You've got a great mix of the song, but it is a bright, cheerful mix. It might be worth looking into a way to alter it a bit to seem more desperate, standoffish, etc., to emphasize the tone of the Goron section.

Making it a bit less cheerful could be as simple as slowing it down a bit and changing it to a minor key

Haha, I want to hear it in a minor key! Spritonic, an easy way to transpose it into its minor is to select all the notes and drag them up six half steps, like six squares in the grid (sorry if you already knew that, don't know what your music theory knowledge is). I feel like it would be super ridiculous sounding. Do iiiiiit.
