                         Main Theme - Final Fantasy I                           

Composed by : Nobuo Uematsu

Tabbed by : ForestMarth

Platform : NES


This tab is a transcription.
I only changed the octaves in which the instruments play in order to fit with what I wanted,
that is to say a tab for two acoustic guitars and an acoustic bass.
For example, the triangle in the original song is at least 1 octave higher
(but I'm not good in finding the right octaves in which instruments play...).

It seems like this song is the Main Theme of Final Fantasy I,
although it's called "Opening Theme" on the soundtrack
(the song called "Main Theme" on the soundtrack seems to be the "Overworld Theme").
To be more precise, here is what auriplane said when I proposed this tab :
"The original name was "Opening Theme" in FF1, and it was "Opening" in FF3 and FF4.
But then it was renamed "Final Fantasy" in FF5.
From FF6-FF9, it was part of the ending themes and didn't have a title,
but then it appeared in FF12 as "Final Fantasy" again.
So I guess we could say that since FF5 the song has been called Final Fantasy."
Thanks to her for this observation :-)
