I love this guy's tabs. Thanks for doing this.

This is wonderful. I love it.


This is wonderful. I love it.

nice !


great music ! i love it, good job !

Yes, man, yes...


Yes, man, yes...

Great tab should change the


Great tab should change the "click here for video example" to maikois video since the original link no longer works.

I'm going to preface my reply

I'm going to preface my reply by saying that I love Maikoi's video and that she is a very skilled guitarist. Anyone that has not seen her video should take a look:


However, unless vicio himself states otherwise, I personally feel that adding a different video as the video example would be insulting to him as I would be representing his arrangement with something other than his own video. I think this would be akin to making Salem's recording of Birth of A God the video example for Kabuki's arrangement without asking Kabuki what he thinks. You or I may think that Salem's recording is good, but that doesn't mean that it is Kabuki's arrangement reincarnated.

Anyways, I'll take down the dead link for the video example. If anyone finds vicio's video floating around the interwebz somewhere, p[lease let me know and I'll add it back in.

Help with fingering for this tab!!


First off excellent tab, butut could anyone help by giving me a recommended fingering for tbis tab? The way I'm playing it looks much different form the way Maikoi playes it. I REALLY want to learn this song well, and so far am having a hard time playing it.so any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks, max

I've quickly made a gp5 and

I've quickly made a gp5 and pdf that include the way that I have played this since I first transcribed Vicio's (the original arranger) video. Here is the zip containing both files:

Windmill Hut Fingerings

Note that multiple measures that are the same only have the fingerings displayed for the first one.

Wow that was fast! Thanks

this sounds better
and this


This tab is a transcription

This tab is a transcription of Vicio89's Windmill Hut arrangement. The way it is in the tab is the way that he played it.

Also, after trying them out, I disagree with either of your alternatives sounding better.

IMO = in my opinion if you

IMO = in my opinion
if you disagree, that's your problem

I wasn't berating your

I wasn't berating your opinion, if you mistook what I said. I was simply stating the reason why the tab is the way it is and was giving my own opinion of the subject.

I am open to implementing corrections and suggestions if I feel that they improve the tab, and have done this in the past. Conversely, if I disagree with something, I won't change the tab. I also feel it is better to acknowledge whether or not I will change a tab based on a suggestion, and that is what I effectively did with you.

I never asked anyone to

I never asked anyone to change anything, i just posted what I play, the first one because it is easier to play and IMO sounds better, and the second one, I just changed the position of one bass note because it sounds more natural, and otherwise sounds bass-empty

Really hypnotic

Such a cool tab, very hypnotic... I've had a lot of fun this morning playing it over and over as a continuous loop, trying different improvisations each time. =) My favorite tab for doing that since the Blue Fields tabs. Coool.
