What if you used: D5 and D2

What if you used: D5 and D2 instead of B6 and G7 and then also G3 and D5 instead of e5 and b6? Not really sure since it's been a while since I played the game.

Nope, those are the wrong

Nope, those are the wrong notes. Notice in the first part they are the same notes played one octave higher.

Actually that octave higher

Actually that octave higher is just when the song kinda "responds", its like the 3 0 3 0 2 3 2 3 part, then an octave higher response after, then the second part, then the "solo".

sounds fine to me

I'm looking for somebody to write a article for may blog about guitar playing video games. We could work out something for compensation- I have lots of other sites, so I could provide some backlinks. contact me at: r e el p ony % g mail . com (remove the spaces and replace the % with you know what)
Thanks,

It sounds alright, you just

It sounds alright, you just gotta time it well.

The end is good once you

The end is good once you play it at the right speed.

Instead of

G---2------
D-----3-2-0

at the end this sounded prettier...

B-6/5-3----- (Pluck six and slide to five... =P)

I dunno, sounds right for me.

I think the main "song" part

I think the main "song" part sounds good as

D 3-0-3-0--3-3
A --------4-4

But thats just me...

it sounds good, i need to

it sounds good, i need to work on the correct speed though.

archard may i say. you're the man

Couldn't have said it better

Couldn't have said it better myself. just another great TAB

yeah :D

yeah
:D

Heheh, they made the ending

Heheh, they made the ending as tough as possible for beginners, didn't they? Well, it was a very good tab (coming from a novice to guitar and a know nothing to tabbing).

I'm looking to transpose

I'm looking to transpose some of these tabs to a trumpet. Is there a certain way? I'm not familiar with guitar notes, so I'm not sure what a guitar's note would be if you asked for a B flat major note.

That, and I can't read tabs so well to even figure out what note is what XD

This might help you

This might help you transpose tabs, assuming you know at least a little bit (just the basics) of music theory:

A guitar is tuned, from lowest (thickest) string to highest (thinnest) string as follows, E A D G B e, with the high e two octaves higher than the lowest E. Frets divide the string by *half-steps*, i.e., 1st fret on the lowest string is F, 2nd is F#, 3rd is G, 5th is A, and so on, up to 12th which is one octave. The 5thh fret on any string is the same as the string higher than is played open, with the exception of the g string, in which case it is the 4th. Example, the 5th fret of the E string is the same as the A string played open (or 0), and the 4th fret of the g string is the same as the b string. Make sense?

Now, tabs simply tell you what fret to play on what string with each line representing a string, so...

this is e|----------1-0---|
this is B|--------1-----1-|
this is G|------2---------|
this is D|----3-----------|
this is A|--3-------------|
this is E|1---------------|

This would be played as 1st fret on the thickest (E) string (an F), then the 3rd on the A string (C) then 3rd on the D string (F), then 2nd on the G string (A), then 1st on the B string (C), then 1st on the e string (f), then the e string played open (e), then 1st on the B string again, (C). These would all be played as separate notes, as opposed to all at once. which I will talk about in a second. (in case anyone is wondering, this is an F major arpeggio, with a fun ending.)

Alternately, some tabs will have things that look like this:

e|--1-------------|
B|--1-------------|
G|--2-------------|
D|--3-------------|
A|--3-------------|
E|--1-------------|

This is a chord, F major, actually, where all the notes are played at one time. Obviously, you can't play a chord on a trumpet, because you can't play six notes at one time. If you needed to transcribe this for an instrument such as a trumpet, you would probably just play the root note, (F in this case.)

hope this helps!

it should be lik

I was just about to comment

I was just about to comment the exact same thing Cory said... It sounds better than 3-0-3-0, because it lets the notes ring, like they should. Other than that it's a sweet tab!

ouch. those votes arent

ouch. those votes arent great... for whatever reason.

I don't like how low it goes

I don't like how low it goes at the end, something tells me that it should end on a higher scale. I think instead of

-1
---
--2
---3-2-0

it should be something more like

-1--1-0
--------3
--2------

something like that.

this part sounds kind of

this part sounds kind of wrong

e-3---3---------

I'm not understanding where the bad ratings are coming from, it sounds great to me.

someone must not like archard or something for this to be voted 100's of times in order to make the average a 2.

I also do not understand why

5

I also do not understand why this has such a bad rating.

wtf is wreong with u people

5

wtf is wreong with u people this is perfect!!!!!

I have a feeling that

I have a feeling that someone figured out a way to bypass the one week waiting period for anonymous users, back when anonymous users were able to rate tabs on this site.

You mean 138 legit votes

You mean 138 legit votes seem slightly unlikely? ;)

this is perfect. I love this

5

this is perfect. I love this piece and it's my favourite in the game (well Sarias song is a good match but still). thank you archard for all these great tabs!!

Awesome!

5

hahah! got the rating back up to five stars!

something seems off

Maybe my guitar's out of tune, because I tuned it by ear, or maybe I haven't heard the song in a while, but...
G----------2---2---------7---7--------
D--3-0-3-0---3---3--------------------
I think the notes on the second fret on the G string should be a fret lower. Same applies for their counterparts on the high E.

EDIT: My guitar was way out of tune. Like, you wouldn't believe it.

Fire

I have been teleported to the fire temple,lol. Sounds great.

however, you did a good job with your tab

AWESOME

THIS . . . IS . . . AWESOME!!!!!

Sheet Music Transcription

In the sheet music that (I think) Nintendo produced, the notes are the exact same as the ones in this tab.

I agree with you all this is
