I Can Tell By Looking At This Alone That This Is Excellent

Can't wait to play when I get a chance!


sounds perfect! addicting to play repeatedly! lol

The Childhood Feels


They flow to me so strongly <3

Practically speechless


The tab speaks for itself. This was one of the first songs I ever learned, and it was a simple version since no others would pull it off quite right in fingerstyle. This, though....this is the best version of this song I've ever seen. Bravo.

Strange... I hear it sounding

Strange... I hear it sounding totally wrong ! Maybe I played too many times the songenuit version ?(as songenuit said "I used a different harmony to make it more interesting. It sounds a little medieval, now")
Strange my feelings here anyway :)

That is definitely a cool

That is definitely a cool arrangement.
I followed the official piano sheet music as closely as possible, so the it should be accurate as accurate to the original as possible.

Hey ! Thanks for rapid

Hey ! Thanks for rapid answer.
Well you right, the official piano sheet music itself sounds wrong or strange :
According the piano performance, I hear the bass notes very messy, I mean not synchronized with the same harmony (chords) than the melody. It's even different than an constant shift as often used vocals harmony. Here's I can here just the Chaos ! ^^
I rarely met a piece like that before for solo, it sounds so bizarre, I even can't love it.. but I loved all the simplified version (with Only One harmony) as songenuit tab & ofc the Erutan (aka katethegreat19) cover :
Since Nobuo Uematsu can't be wrong :D I guess I just need to learn much more about music to be able to appreciate this kind of "divergent style" :)
