Gosh, this just sounds

Gosh, this just sounds EXCELENT. Fits perfectly a simple, humble guitar. This is one great arrangement for one great song. Thank you for sharing it with us, I'll try learning that one now!

wow

Love the sound but curse the difficulty, i still love you tho

so beautiful gave it a nickle

amazingly nice tab. Btw try a

amazingly nice tab. Btw for beginners, try a -5 semi-tone transposing to obtain a "easy to play" version. Using capo at 4th bar it sounds pretty

Well, it would sound bad if

Well, it would sound bad if you did that, because you'd be throwing away important bass notes. How would you rewrite the arpeggios to preserve the bass, transposed?

You right , -5 translation

You right , -5 translation will be destructive, so before Translate, I always try to preserve what is possible to be preserved from the first string (to the third string generally)

    bar n°1 : bass note is condamned |+|
                
    barn°2 : I can save her using third chord & +2 bar    [*** so 1 become (3) on third chord  ***]

    bar n°9 : I can replace bass note with a medium one [ 3 become (5) on third chord  ], result will can be ok or not

After translation, tab isn't complete coz 4 bass notes missed -_-

beginner version (some bass notes missing)

Criticism about new notes added : playing new tab bar n°1,2,21 seems not bad (for my beginner ears). I ear the medium new note bar 9 sounds a bit strange. medium note bar n°10 sounds a bit ugly, well hum maybe its best to remove it (?).

Well finally indeed this easy version sounds not pretty as original do, it s not a surprise coz an easier version is generally destructive. Must consider that like an easy way for beginners (or lazy people :)

Of course, people wich want a pretty sound will have to play orignal tab.

nice

Two to three lines in I was thinking, "This is amazing so far--I hope it doesn't let me down by having a compromise that destroys the musicality" but it held up all the way. Gorgeous tab!

I do finger a couple of things differently, but I'll just bother with notating them if I end up posting a recording here.
