I can't really get that plucked violin part in the beginning to sound as cool as in the original.
I think goes:

e-------------------------------
B-------------------------------
G-------14----------12----------
D----12----------12-------------
A-10----------10----------------
E-------------------------------

No, the plucked part is just

No, the plucked part is just fifth+octave:

e-------------------------------
B-------------------------------
G-------12----------12----------
D----12----------12-------------
A-10----------10----------------
E-------------------------------

You're hearing the A on the bowed violin part, which is in the same register, so it's influencing how you hear the harp.

This part is a harp, not a plucked violin. Try playing on a clean channel, plucking gently at the 12th fret past the note. That gives you a sort of pure harp-type sound :-)

The whole thing is really simple. It looks like this:

    Intro

e--------------------
B--------------------
G-------12----------- x4
D----12--------------
A-10-----------------
E--------------------

    Part A

e--------------------
B--------------------
G-------9------------ x8
D----9---------------
A-7------------------
E--------------------

    Part B

e--------------------
B--------------------
G-------------------- x8
D-------10-----------
A----10--------------
E-8------------------

    Repeat back to Part A.

Sweet! I was plucking that part by like the 15th fret trying for that "harp-ey" sound :D

I didn't even think about the harp, even though it's in like 90% of all FF songs hehe :)

It sounded pretty easy. It was sort of hard to hear though.

I'll update it with a 3rd guitar playing what you figured out, if you don't mind ;-)

Yeah, go for it :-)

Did it!

It was random that I tabbed this song.
I struck a riff that sounded like the second part of the melody and I knew instantly what song it was haha

Looked for a tab, saw there wasn't one and decided to get it done! Surprised there wasn't a tab for this one already.
