YES! I was looking at my old

YES! I was looking at my old tab the other day thinking that I would love a classical arrangement for this. Great job. Though I really like the original key. Still good though.

I know, it sucks changing

I know, it sucks changing keys and all but I have to make a decision between either having to change voicings and rhythms around in the regular key, or staying true to the original in a new key. I usually will choose the latter.

Still though, you can always use a capo to play it in the original key. In this case just put a capo on the 3rd fret and play the tabs as written.

Ahh, what a beautiful tab! I

Ahh, what a beautiful tab! I never have played this song before! But this is positively divine!

What's a Capo??

There's supposed to be a

There's supposed to be a capo for this piece?

In fact you can do that for

In fact you can do that for just about any of my drop D pieces if the lowest note of the original key is above the D. Just put the capo on the proper fret.

No, but I'm saying if you

No, but I'm saying if you really are dying to play it in the original key you can put a capo on fret 3.

SWEET! Capo FTW!

SWEET! Capo FTW!

Perfect man!! If only I

Perfect man!! If only I could play classical better...

there needs to be some sort

there needs to be some sort of thing where it slowly scrolls the page down for you, i hate stopping to continue that tab

If you have guitar pro you

If you have guitar pro you can play along with the guitarpro file, it will scroll and play the tab. If not I suppose you could just print it out, it's only 2 pages.

I actually know of a script

I actually know of a script that does that. I almost installed it awhile ago but just decided not to. Personally I don't find it useful but if enough people want it I can install it.

the best part about this tab

the best part about this tab is that the pause in it is convenietely in the spot where you have to scroll down!

Yay, Thank God, I started

Yay, Thank God, I started playing acoustic guitar first. Now I have no trouble playing songs like this, wheee!

Thank you

Thank you

Wonderful arrangement!

Wonderful arrangement!

This song always makes me

This song always makes me feel worried and anxious, yet at the same time it makes me feel at ease and somewhat blissful. It's weird.

Well, just giving this arrangement some more love.

I love you.... ..... tifa..

This is the best tab on Tifa's Theme I've seen.

man, i love your tabs (this one, fishermans horizon, wind scene, etc.). they are demanding but not too difficult and they sound simply beautiful. thanks alot, man, youre my favourite tabber of all time : )

This version....

Wipes the floor with archrds version (no offense archard but yours is a 2/5 compared to this)
AND ONE MORE THING
Why are people comlaining about drop d tuning? if its not in drop d then the 6th string sounds out of tune FACT

Always a sweet song. to play

Always a sweet song. to play and listen to.

i am learning this one

W/o Capo

hi im new to guitar, does the piece sound really different without the use of a capo on 3rd fret, do i need to use a capo to play this song?

No, you don't need a capo to

No, you don't need a capo to play this. It will sound exactly the same, just a few semitones lower. You won't notice the difference unless you're playing along with the recording. The capo is only used to make the piece be in the proper key, while still allowing for the easier fingerings.

Great job kabukibear! I

5

Great job kabukibear! I really like this tab and I think the song is very relaxing. Archard you have my vote for an automatic scrolling thing. Sometimes it is pretty useful.

Hey Archard, Why Don't You

5

Hey Archard,
Why Don't You Put Up A Voting Thing For The Automatic Scroller?
I Think A Lot Of People Would Vote For It.

like my nick says im a noob

like my nick says im a noob and i dont know how to do brush ups

another name for "strum" as

another name for "strum" as in strum down from low to high ;)

If there are parts where I skip strings it means to make a strumming sound by plucking each individual string played quickly, low to high.

ok thx
