Never did I think that anyone would attempt to even try to transcribe this song (not like I can play it yet <3). That deserves a Super-Duper-Mega-Hug! Some of these parts are beyond my ability to play as they are too fast (I use finger-style picking and not a pick :D).

I'm working on finger-style

I'm working on finger-style but I'm really still not very good at it--most of this I had a pick in mind.

Lady Auriplane is the only girl on the internet! She has the power!

This arrangement. WOW. I thought it was impossible to play a song like that in a guitar. This place just loves to prove me wrong. This sounds as awesome as the piano version! AWESOME!

I can't even imagine how much work it must have given you. Ouch. Arranging the notes and the timing of two instruments must be a pain.

But, well, the results were AMAZING. Congratulations for your hard work!

Thank you very much for sharing it with us!

I didn't play it too well,

I didn't play it too well, but I made a recording of this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLDcz0BUKWo
