Guitar 2

G--2--     G--0--
D--3--     D--2--
A--0--     A--3--
E-----     E-----

These two chords repeat over and over for the first part.

It sounds good if you just do a slow strum at first and then
just finger pick your way through the chord for the remainder.

For the second part, just play along with guitar 1 only an ocatve lower

well, its ok . . . still, I

well, its ok . . .

still, I wouldn't mind the background music for another guitar

It's not bad. I just wish it

It's not bad. I just wish it was more harder to play and more complex as well as more defined in all the sounds that's being played.
I also don't like how the fret goes up past 21. Lol
But that's just me because my accoustin only has 20 and my First Act only has 21. Oh well.

The root note of the first

The root note of the first chord is an F, but the chord itself is not an Fmaj7. The order of notes of the first chord are supposed to be F,C,F,A,D,E (Fmaj7 does not include a D). I'm not quite sure what chord that is though. Second chord was also close. It's a Cmaj7add9(I know cuz I'm staring at the sheet music right now) And I have no idea how to finger that chord . . .

The closest thing I can

The closest thing I can think of for that first chord is an Fmaj7add13. You can't play it on a guitar as it's written here though, because it would be a second inversion with the F still in the bass, so basically,


e--0--
B--3--
G--2--
D--3--
A--3--
E--1--

and unless you have an extra finger, since there's nothing to bar, you can't play it. Unless you can manage to get your thumb around to that low F but I can't on mine.

I would strum it

Fmaj7add13 Cmaj7add9
e--0-- e--0--
B--3-- B--3--
G--2-- G--4--
D--3-- D--2--
A----- A--3--
E--1-- E-----

Yeah yeah ok so I got lazy

Yeah yeah ok so I got lazy sorry guys. I just thought those two chords sounded pretty good/close to the real thing. I'll make a more complete version.

lolol I'm not critcizing

lolol I'm not critcizing archard, you know me, how often do I keep things exactly as they're played? lol.

I was just trying to respond to gibson's post.

Well, according to the

Well, according to the music, in order for the chords to be right, each will have to involve 6 notes.

I don't think they "have" to

I don't think they "have" to do any such thing. Music that's not written for guitar has to be adjusted for the shortcomings of the instrument. Much in the same way that a bend or harmonic wouldn't transfer over to a piano rendition of a guitar piece.

Normally, I would agree with

Normally, I would agree with you, but I've seen a video clip of 2 guys with guitars plus some chick with a flute play this song. I don't remember where I saw it, But the 2 guys made it sound almost the same as in the game.

Then perhaps the guitars

Then perhaps the guitars were tuned differently in order to accomodate. That's always possible. I was just speaking in terms of the tuning archard chose.

Because I haven't seen the

Because I haven't seen the video, I don't know how it's arranged, but chances are the flute is playing the melody and the guitars are splitting the chord between them. That's how I would do it at least.

if you had a flute taking

if you had a flute taking care of the melody why would you need two guitars?

I can only guess because, as

I can only guess because, as I said, I haven't seen the video, but if there were two guitars and a flute I assume the flute is doing the melodies and the guitars are taking care of the rest. It must be more complex as far as one guitar doing the "piano" and the other doing the synth strings or whatnot. I have no idea.

well, you know how in piano

well, you know how in piano you use both hands? I was thinking that maybe one guitar did what one hand did on the piano, and the other guitar did the other job. It's not just the rising arppegios that are the background, there's also what sounds like violins accompaning the melody.

You know what, I have the sheet music. I'm gonna try again to tab it out for 2 guitars. It might take me a while though, so be patient people . . .

Awesome tab been lookin 4 it

Ok, I finally tabbed out the background, but the problem is that the computer I have is a webtv, so I have no way write it out on the computer. Just give me a few more days and I'll send them in so they can be put up.

Very nice tabs archard, but

Very nice tabs archard, but the background guitar is something like this, I think.

My only problem is that it sounds odd playing with a Jackson.
