And YES this has been

And YES this has been transposed into a different key to make it easier to play so if you try to play along with the game it would sound completely wrong. Play it alone and you'll see it's pretty fun to play.

This is amazing,I've mastered a few of your songs and I'm working on a few of your tabs at the moment but I'm putting off all my projects at to learn this song and 'the legenday hero' tab.

They both are so beautiful, they are amazing.

Thank you for all the great work, you have been keeping me busy for the last 3-4 months

Note: All you have to do is

Note: All you have to do is tune every string down half a step, and bingo, you're in the right key and you can play along. Thanks very much for the tabs, they're perfect.

Great tab and all but the quick strum motion thing?
i strum with my thumb so this is sorta hard *brain explodes*
Any tips kabuki? this is my first year guitar and im sorta learning so i sorta suck

Well if you strum with your

Well if you strum with your thumb like you said then you should be okay. Just strum the bottom 2 (or 3 if you follow the video) strings with the thumb while playing the melody. You'll make something of a pinching motion with your thumb and fingers, as if you were "smashing someones head" by looking through your fingers and and pushing them together. If you've ever jokingly done that then you should know exactly the motion I'm talking about...if not then I may just seem a bit crazy.

Cool thanks its still kinda

Cool thanks its still kinda hard but im learning that technique by what you said thanks Also your pretty much a pro and are really god with these songs xD
Edit 2: wait i know about that because i did ur tab on broken promise from dark cloud and i just pulled both strings together to play both which made a harmony with the song as a bounus to the melody

Awesome job! I'm new to guitar and I am really enjoying learning this song.

The first song I ever learned.

I started playing guitar in January of 2009. When I first "played" this, it was completely horrible because I sucked so badly at guitar playing, I even recorded it. A couple days ago, I decided to revisit the song after watching said video. Kabukibear, this arrangement is amazing, and I hope you keep doing what you're doing!
