Tabs you always wanted played

So, okay, there's been hubbub about people getting ratings lower than they want. But question: do you ever put in tons of work for a tab, but it seems nobody cares to even try it out?

What about a thread where people trade trying out tabs? Where person A tries out a tab by person B, in exchange for person B trying out a tab by person A. We all like attention, but we're not all Kabukibear. :p

And you could specify what category you have and/or would be willing to try. For example, I do fingerstyle/classical playing, so that is primarily what I would have to offer. However, I'd also try out electric/melodic stuff.

I think that this could be, in addition to getting tabs attention, a way for people to simply try stuff they wouldn't normally try, without it being a contest.

Does this sound like a feasible idea? It could be pretty low-key and relaxed, I think. One tab for one tab.

Actually Ennea, I've got plenty of classical music to keep me busy. I really was thinking I wanted someone else to try a couple of my tabs, and I would play theirs, if it seemed like a fair trade.

Yes, irc people, I say this openly. So if you have a problem, please criticize it openly, instead of posting what amounts to a smear. I was in fact asking if people thought it was a good idea overall.

There are plenty of great tabs that never get any attention. I like the idea, but the authors of some of those tabs don't post anymore, so we'd have to trade those tabs on their behalf.

Also, its unfortunate that there is poison being spread in IRC. Seemed like a decent enough place the few times I visited.

Wouldn't mind to try out some mentioned pieces here, can't promise a recording though (especially not for multiple guitar - I suck at editing) - but don't have many tabs to offer :D

so does this mean I can play one of your recordings badly to make you quit guitar so I can one day be better than you?

Not too hard hand position wise so it'll go well with practice, but still not something I'll have mastered in just an hour imo. From the look I had, I'll most likely use thumb on a small number of occasions for low e bass notes (even on my acoustic it never strains my hand so I don't mind doing it; piano worked my hands stretch like a bitch due to some chords larger than octaves (which is also the case for a Chopin nocturne I'm working on atm for the conservatory) so +flexibility gain even on guitar), otherwise m11 seems like the hardest to pull off cleanly with those sixteenth notes and working on the neck between fret #3 and #12. I never knew Stamen did a fingerstyle arrange of this underrated piece though which is why it was a pleasant surprise, thanks for showing it.

The main thing I lacked at the time was keeping time while in the midst of two hand tapping rhythms. Mind you, I definitely made good use of training more with time as far as my base playing goes. Tapping is a different form of audio and tactile stimulation, shit is fly.

Ennea, I didn't mean you. I meant everyone Salem was quoting in his post from irc chat, and Salem as well, for posting it instead of saying "I think this is a bad idea, because.."

However, the original idea is, to be even more explicit, for people to be able to say,

"I made this tab, but it doesn't seem to have been tried very much, it doesn't have any votes or comments. Is there anyone else with a tab they would like feedback on? And I'll play that tab, if you play this one."

So the point is fundamentally based on the idea of trading, rather than requesting.

Of course, if you're not a big tabber yourself, but you have tabs that you know about that you do think deserve some attention, that's fine too, as long as it's still an offer for a trade and not merely a request. I wasn't thinking about recordings as part of the deal, but of course they can be, if people decide to.

It's not about whining either, because whiners just complain--they don't offer anything in exchange.

If you play it musenji I will play your tab

But seriously, I put a lot of work into this and thought it was funny how my prelude tab from the same game which only took a half hour to tab got more views, ha.

What would you like to be played of your tabs musenji? It would be nice to actually learn something, I never actually take the time to memorize anything on this site, although I do play nearly everything being a moderator.

Not smearing anyone. All I said was you post crazy shit when you are tired. You even said as much in one of your posts.

Also lemon don't hate, you play some gross ass games too.

As for this thread there are a couple tabs I got close to recording but never sealed the deal on. Seeing someone play them in a way that didn't sound shitty would be cool I guess?

It's the 'Buried in the snow' (FF7) or 'Boundary South Gate' (FF9) of FFX for me I guess, since those are also only played in one area (not sure about FF9 anymore, but pretty convinced anyway), not really mentioned/ever used in medleys, but I would always stick in those maps forever just for the music.
So started learning EotA a bit, m11 is actually easier than I thought even at tempo. I'm busier with piano atm though but I'll probably finish learning it by heart by this weekend/mid-next week, then playing it entirely in a good manner: iunnoyet. I'll record it then.

It's not like I'm doing it for you though, b--baka!

Tapping is more like playing a keyboard instrument than a string one, is how I always saw it (although pull-offs is what makes it still different). And gj for progress.
Edit: I forgot again; what was that acoustic song you had mentioned sometime last year in IRC which even the composer didn't perfectly play? From some free game probably, and besides that I remember you played it while streaming more recently. I'll fave it this time as to not lose it again |:

@hakoria, yesss, buried in the snow is great, and while south gate is a great song, I think this is the true buried gem of ff9. I don't even remember when this one plays, but i'd love to have a friend to play the cello while I play the guitar (it would sound cool on a harp, but fuck it, guitar works too!)


and I expect a recording by end of next week at the latest <3

Okay hsl, so the section of your tab before the Airship section has 284 measures. I'm gonna assume the airship bit is about as long. I think total, my tabs all put together have less measures than that one tab alone. :p

But you're the first to actually ask what I wanted to see played. So. My offer is to take a crack at the entire first half of your FFVI tab (which, regardless of the votes, I will probably be the first person to actually DO, haha), in exchange for having these five played through a bit:

http://www.gametabs.net/dragon-quest-iii/small-shrine
http://www.gametabs.net/legend-of-zelda-ocarina-of-time/windmill-hut-1
http://www.gametabs.net/wave-race-64/dolphin-park
http://www.gametabs.net/dragon-quest-iv/mysterious-shrine
http://www.gametabs.net/dragon-quest-iv/town

They total less than 100 measures. And, rather than votes or a recording, per se, I'm most interested in commentary on them. I'm interested to see what someone else actually thinks about them, from a playing perspective. But if you wanna trade draft-ish recordings, I'd think about it. Have to play through it first.

Sound good?

Ha, I thought people would play a part or two and come back another day to play a different part. The song is split into about 20 sections and I labeled the timing of each.

I'll check out those tabs and offer feedback. I don't have anything to record with though.

I got up to Relm, now I need to sleeeeeeeep!

Initial thoughts:

Some of them are really nice, I liked Gau's playout. With some of the others, it's a bit of a stretch to have it on one guitar instead of two since the texture --really-- thins out. Nevertheless, I feel you've captured the important notes pretty much throughout--the ones that make the music feel like it should.

There is some funky left-hand workout action, barres on the first fret while playing up to fret 4, pretty regularly. Makes me think you'll like my mysterious shrine from DQ IV--classical style but played on electric, with a couple of really, really funky left hand position switches that are doable, just not what anyone should be used to. Speaking of electric, I was trying this on a classical and obviously when you get up past 12, it's danger territory, though perhaps not impossible.
