It seems that when it comes to videogame tabs so much of it comes to nostalgia. The tabs that are the most popular aren't necessarily the best, they're popular because the game they're from is popular. This leaves a slew of really great guitar tabs out there that remain unplayed because the game they're based on isn't as popular as Final Fantasy or Zelda. So we're starting a weekly article to get some more recognition for these great but often ignored tabs.
This week's GTYNP is Stamen47's fine arrangment of the intro to Secret of Monkey Island available here
Stamen, a regular contributor, again delivers a very good and fun tab to play. Many tabs can't stand on their own, meaning that if you were to play it for someone that didn't like the game you'd most likely get a "meh" or "that's nice". This piece can stand on its own, something that I look for in great tabs. I'll admit for some reason I had a hard time reading the beginning and it isn't for beginners, but at the same time it isn't beyond most players. It really is quite fun to play, one of those pieces that sound much harder than it actually is.
Good job Stamen. Keep it up! And to everyone else, Keep Contributing! Someday you might see your tab here.
