Why does everyone hate this

Why does everyone hate this tab so much? lol

this is npt the song of time

this is npt the song of time this is the lost woods look up lost woods and compare these two just differant frets

wow you are f***ing

wow you are f***ing retarded, there is no way in hell this is the lost woods

Lost Woods??

this isnt suppose to be the lost woods..learn to read man..

-_-

either you ddidn't even play the song or you have no ear for music. i didn't even play the song and i hummed it, it was right so what are you whineing about?

this is the song of time

ook people , thing is about tabs is that they are relative to how you hold your guitar, this one is the correct tabs for the song of time but if you flip your guitar over and play it from higher to lower instead it plays the lost woods song. it works both ways, just depends how you hold your guitar, left handed or right handed. or how you string it. the lower case e symbolizes the higher string and the upper case E symbolizes the deeper string. so stop complaining and just use common sense, saw this once and realized it can be played as the song of time of the lost woods theme simply by turning it upside down

it doesnt matter if your left

it doesnt matter if your left or right handed, low e will always be on the top high e will always be on the bottom so it has nothing to do with how you hold the guitar.

your a tard

wow what kind of f***ed up world do you live in where this is the lost woods?

Definitely song of time

I just played this as I played the song of time on Majora's Mask, which is played the same on OoT. Sounds absolutely perfect.

Same with Maranda's version,

Same with Maranda's version, shouldn't some notes be played down on separate strings to let notes ring?

I say E5 B6 and G8 should be the first part, Imo.
Leave E5, E8, E7 alone... Maybe switch the E3 following to B8 and kind of follow through with that...

This is the best one in my

This is the best one in my opinion.

meh.....im using the higher up part of riverofblood's bass tab and the endjust doesnt sound right...i havent heard the song for awhile so i might be wrong just maybe im just getting the tempo wrong... just if u could check it and make sure make me happier

WTF!! the first parts r

WTF!! the first parts r wrong on all of these. have u guys heard the song b4??? WTF!!!

No, Anonymous is mistaken.

No, Anonymous is mistaken. That tab is correct. Though I would put the tab up an octave. Don't forget that the guitar sounds 1 octave below it's written notes. Even though if you played the tab on the piano both the guitar and the piano would appear to play the same notes, the guitar voices one octave below it. For exmample, play middle C on a piano and then the equivalent C on the guitar. Going by written notes it would be 4th string 3rd fret but in actuality it is 2nd string 1st fret. Just something to be aware of when transcribing for the guitar.

i think we should all dig up

i think we should all dig up our old N64's
(mine already "dug up")

and listen to the song of time in the extremely lit up church in hyrule then maybe we can settle this in a battle royal :/

no but seriously wy dont we write it down while your listening to it

some missing notes but

Good tab, sound quite good, i don't really care if it is really the same octave or whatever... the song is similar to what i know, and help me to improve my skill (i'm playing guitar for my 3rd week, don't have a teacher).

I don't know what you guys

5

I don't know what you guys are talking about. there is nothing wrong with this tab. Also, Maranda's is good too. It is the tabs for the full temple of time music. Trust me, my friend and I are LoZ addicts. the tabs are right.

Most of you are just placing

Most of you are just placing either exactly the same frets, spaced differently, or the same notes on different frets.

Also, I think it sounds better on a lower fret. As I remember it (haven't touched the game in a while however), it's pretty deep. Not when you're playing it in the ocarina, but when you're hearing it in the temple.

the real song of

hmmm i dunno but i've been playing this on my bass sound pretty good lol

It sounds correct to me

5

It sounds correct to me I am an avid LOZ:OT player it sounds very good and it is already a fairly easy tab.

the tabs are correct

look people , thing is about tabs is that they are relative to how you hold your guitar, this one is the correct tabs for the song of time but if you flip your guitar over and play it from higher to lower instead it plays the lost woods song. it works both ways, just depends how you hold your guitar, left handed or right handed. or how you string it. the lower case e symbolizes the higher string and the upper case E symbolizes the deeper string. so stop complaining and just use common sense, saw this once and realized it can be played as the song of time of the lost woods theme simply by turning it upside down

I love this tab fun and easy

Song of Time

Can I please explain something? This tab is "the song of time" just in a lower version, but it is atually called "The temple of Time" because that song is played in the temple. Therefore I'd suggest you changing the name of the song + adding the ending to please all these trolls commenting irrelevant hate-comment.

To clarify some things...

5

god, that argument was funny to read.
But in all honesty, this is the song of time. It's probably the easiest version to play so far.
In regular tabs, the High E string is always on top, with low E string on the bottom. Flip it around, the low E is on top.
And to the argument earlier, Lost Woods goes like this:

i dunno if you just misread it, or if you can't understand the tabs.
