Yay ! My first tab !
I loved so much Space Harrier in my childhood ( loved the Arcade and the SMS version ), and never find a tab, so here it is . . .
Is a simple tab in "Archard Style", nothing amazing, but I think that can work.
Hope that I post this in the right topic ( as I said this is "my first time" ), and I hope that some of you will enjoy it.

Woo! You finally made a tab!

I think your guitar was tuned a half step down, becuase the notes are one fret off. So everything should be moved down one fret like this begginning part:

E||-13---12--12----|-------3----5----|
B||----------------|-----------------|
G||----------------|-----------------|
D||----------------|-----------------|
A||----------------|-----------------|
E||----------------|-----------------|

Also you made "mistake" many people do on their first tab. You put most of the notes on the top e string. Try moving some notes down to other strings to reduce neck movement like this:

E||-13---12--12----|-----------------|
B||----------------|-----------------|
G||----------------|-------12---14---|
D||----------------|-----------------|
A||----------------|-----------------|
E||----------------|-----------------|

Post an updated version with these two corrections and I'll publish it

If you are unsure of where notes are, plug your tuner in and play a fret, it'll tell you. So you can move them into the same area and make it easier to play. Like e3 is also g12, as hsl pointed out.

There is an easier way than using a tuner. Just move up five frets each time you go to a lower string, except from the b string to the g string, which is four frets.

E||-0--------------------|

G||-------9--------------|

No, I meant I was saying the same thing he said. My intonation is fine, yeah I fixed it back then. What I mean is, if you're playing something on the e and b strings, and you move it up to b and g, your fingers won't be in the exact same position.

What slide exactly? The 3-15e? You were saying that was difficult for you, which is why I suggested tabbing it like so. You can add in your own technique when you play, a tab is just a basis of the song so you know what notes to play. You have to figure out when slides/bends/harmonics sound good. And you're welcome, just showing you how to make it easier to play...

If you want I can work more on it, and make it more similar to the one from Bardi >_<

I didn't check it at first, becuase I assumed bicardi's version was the same notes on different strings, which I think it is. The second version was in the correct key, but you still had a lot of notes on the high e string.

Yeah, the 12 13 to 3 5 and back thing can sound cool, and it's easy to play. The 12 9 6 5 3 1 0 is awkward, though--barely playable. The 8 10 9 6 5 3 1 isn't as bad, but it's a little awkward. Bacardi's version is a lot easier to play.

Actually, that 12 13 slide 3 5 slide thing is addictive. XD Pasto style!

You can delete the uploaded tab for now if you want.
So I have to write something like
"13---12--12/3----5~" Stuff like that ?
Hm . . . I put many empty space for the right timing ( I like that ) , so How can I keep timing with slide symbol ?
And I will change te "8 10 9 6 5 3 1 " part for sure.
I hate that too !

Hah, I'm the opposite, I am better on the higher frets (7+) and the lower strings. That's probably why I never play rhythm. I think when I get my new guitar I might be better, as the neck is thinner (I don't like Strat style guitars). I usually try to tab songs to sounding as close as possible to the actual song because when I practice guitar playing I do play along with the song. Like I said totally up to you...as long as the notes are right and everything it's all good!
