Final Fantasy VII OST
On That Day, Five Years Ago
Nobuo Uematsu
Arranged by Afonso Teles

Time Signature: 4/4
Tempo: 75bpm

Playing this song just like it's written on the tab is not enough to give it the feel of the original,
so here are some interpretation guidelines. In the bars 6 to 8, the higher notes should be played closer
to the fretboard to produce a softer sound. Another option is the use of artificial harmonics.
The same aplies to bars 11/12, 17/18 and 24/26. Also, in those same bars (11/12, 17/18 and 24/26)
the use of rubato should present, as well as crescendos and diminuendos. On the last bar, a fade out
should be made in order to give the feeling of suspension. Sorry if my english is bad, i'm portuguese.

Was thinking the same thing as laoise, lol. But yea, great tab afonso! Very easy tab that actually sounds quite sweet, love it!

Lol

Heh sorry to disapoint you but there are almost 30 ffvii songs that are not yet on this website xD. It's easy to understand though, since some of them are played like, once in the entire game.

I wanted to tab this, but you
