Chrono Trigger - Lucca's Theme and Delightful Spekkio

I've tabbed two tracks from CT - firstly, because they're awesome, and secondly because I think it's always good to have multiple versions of a song for the community to mull over.

Lucca's Theme

Delightful Spekkio

I hope I've done this correctly.

Hello! Submitting tabs like this is fine :-) Usually it helps if you put a link to where the song can be heard, but I happen to have this soundtrack, so I don't need links.

Your tab for "Fanfare I"

Your tab for "Fanfare I" looks fine. The notes are all perfect!

It does require shifting around while you play, but that's your personal decision as a tabber. I'm going to post it!

The Delightful Spekkio tab

The Delightful Spekkio tab has some wrong notes. I'll type up some specifics:

On the guitar part:

E|-5--5-(5)-5--5-(5)-5-5-7--7-(7)-7--7-(7)-7-7-------| 
B|-6--6-(6)-6--6-(6)-6-6-8--8-(8)-8--8-(8)-8-8-------|
G|-5--5-(5)-5--5-(5)-5-5-7--7-(7)-7--7-(7)-7-7-------| 
D|---------------------------------------------------| 
A|---------------------------------------------------| 
E|---------------------------------------------------|

The note on the first string should be 6, not 7.

On the flute part, every note is wrong. First, check your tuning. If you'd written every note one fret higher, every note would have been correct, except for the fourth note of each staff, which would be two frets too low.

Here are the correct notes for the flute part:

E|----13--------10------------------------------------|
B|--------13-10-----13-11-10--11p10-------------------|
G|-10-------------------------------10-12-------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------|

E|----13--------10------------------------------------| 
B|--------13-10-----13-11-10--11p10-------------------|
G|-10-------------------------------12-10-------------| 
D|----------------------------------------------------| 
A|----------------------------------------------------| 
E|----------------------------------------------------|

The Xylophone is likewise written in E rather than F, and should be:

E|----------------------------13--13----13-15--------| 
B|-13--15--13-----------13-15--------15--------------|
G|------------15--14-15------------------------------| 
D|---------------------------------------------------| 
A|---------------------------------------------------| 
E|---------------------------------------------------|

E|-17-13-15----13-13----13-15-17-20-18-17-15-13------| 
B|----------15-------15------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------| 
D|---------------------------------------------------| 
A|---------------------------------------------------| 
E|---------------------------------------------------|

The bass part is incomplete as written, but the first few notes are:

G|---------------------------------------------------|
D|-3-------------------------------------------------|
A|---0-1-2-3-----------------------------------------|
E|-----------1---------------------------------------|

I actually just made a bass tab. I'm going to post my tab first, so that when your tab goes up, it'll be on top :-)

I hope you don't mind. I need to hear back from you about your Spekkio tab before I post it, and you only had the first few notes for bass, so I wanted to tab out the rest :-)

I've not been able to reply for a little while, but thanks for the feedback. I haven't done a lot of tabbing in my time, so I appreciate constructive criticism. I'll fix the tabs.

Also, auriplane...

I really don't mind if anyone posts tabs that I've tried to do, if they have done them better or differently.

Having viewed and implemented the suggestions, I realise that it was not the tuning of my guitar that was at fault - it was just my ears. All those explosions, gunshots, electrocution torture, radiation etc must have damaged my hearing.

Again, let me know what you think.
