I'm tabbing this song right now but I can't quite get the rhythm right. I can't tell what the last 2 notes are before it loops, and just want to make sure what I have so far is right, so if anyone can help I'd much appreciate it! This is so far:

Rhythm:

e|------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
D|--0---------------------------------|-----0-------------------------------|
A|--0--0-----3---------1--------?-?---|-----0--0-----3--------1--------?-?--|
E|-----0-----3--3------1--1-----------|--------0-----3--3-----1--1----------|

This is the song:

Thanks, that's actually what Jacob got too. I got it all finished up to 1:10 but the rhythm changes there and I can't figure out the melody so I got nothin' for the last 30 seconds of this song :/

Me too, I'm a huge fan of the music. Have you seen the pc remake, The Oath in Felghana? I've yet to play it but LOVE the soundtrack..holy shit. It's so awesome to have that kind of music in-game! I guess I can post what I have so far, if anyone wants to finish it just give me credit for the first part lol

Nah I haven't seen the pc version I will have to look into it. I had barely any working knowledge of japanese and without practicing it I've lost most of what little I had. Unfortunately most of the Y's games never made it stateside iirc? I only have the SNES one. I saw there was one for ps2 but I heard it was kinda meh.

Anywho don't mean to derail your thread so I will pipe down now.

As far as I know there's an English patch for it. I've seen some videos on YouTube of gameplay. It looks nice but the soundtrack is by far the best part! Yeah, I've only played 3 myself. The ps2 remake looks like shit lol.
