This week's theme will be swing time. So I'll use a personal favorite from Super Mario RPG.

The whole song is pretty short, so one time through will suffice.

Here is a video for you: http://www.gametabs.net/recording/agahnim/lets-try

Good luck, I was originally going to use a portion of Stamen47's sunlit earth arrangement, but I think we've had enough triplet fun for now.

Planning on it, but mentioning that won't do any good for the time being.

You constantly ruin my plans.

Hybrid Picking?

So for these fingerstyle challenges is hybrid picking allowed or only straight traditional fingerstyle? I can do both but have grown comfortable with hybrid picking, regrettable left true fingerstyle on the back burner. I need a classical guitar so bad...

I have to say fingerstyle

I have to say fingerstyle only. The purpose of these things is to improve proficiency in fingerstyle, after all.

And then I realized that the chord progression from Chrono Cross's Another World is the same progression as the chorus from Peace of Mind by Boston, and life was never quite the same.

So what, guys, Bhael says everybody needs a break, and you all BELIEVE him? I mean, wow, placebo effect/power of suggestion. Or not? WE'LL NEVER KNOW.

Maybe it's because this tab is kinda hardish to read for swing? I'm taking a crack at it, even though speedfreak already WON by default. Congrats speedfreak!

I figured I'd just wait till this was brought up again. We'll call the new deadline on the 1st of may if people are still willing to stab at it.
