Lightning's Theme
Final Fantasy XIII

Composed by Masashi Hamauzu
Arranged by Nate Brooks (thedstring)
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~
Standard tuning
Capo fret 7
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is supposed to be a more delicate sounding version from ones you've tried.  But I managed
to get most of the awesome colorful notes in there =)

I recommend figuring out where your fret 10 is with the capo (hint, it's fret 17)...you'll need it.

Stretches are a lot easier if you use the capo, and of course, it's the correct key. Good luck guys!!
