Sounds great, but those stretches are killer haha. No idea how you can hold down some of the bass notes for a whole bar though, seems like your fingers have to move about a lot. Would love to see you play this :D

It's a midi tab--there will

It's a midi tab--there will never *be* a recording (including the bass notes, with everything clean and well-played).

If someone proves me wrong, I dunno what I'll do, but it will be something dramatically embarrassing to myself. Like dancing Alizee's J'en ai Marre.

I used a midi file online as reference

But, that's an arrangement I made.

I have to admit, the stretches are rough.
The 4th to 9th fret stretch is one of the easier parts actually.

and on things like measure #2 and #5, I hold down my middle finger to play the 3rd high note. and the hardest part I think is the jump from measure 6 to 7.

Here's my blog of tabs. Some videos, I added a video for this one last night.
Poor quality, but you can tell it's not impossible.

pretty nice video! but i

pretty nice video! but i would suggest not basing tabs or arrangements off of midis you find online
midis are made by people like you and me and can leave out parts of the original song or have notes that are just completely wrong :E

This is very true, I'm gonna

This is very true, I'm gonna take a listen at the original to be sure.

On measures 2 and 5, I think

On measures 2 and 5, I think you have to be double-jointed to be able to hold down your finger like that - my finger will snap if I bend it backwards that far :D I can see from how your thumb curls back that you have very flexible finger joints.

The stretch from 4th to 9th fret is *just* about doable, but it really hurts my hand. I have big hands with long fingers, but the way I have to press down with my fingers all contorted is quite sore, especially on my thumb that can't bend like yours seemingly can.

the best tab ever about this tune

Even lonlonjp version isn't so good. Bravo & thanks to share it ! ^^

Thank you! It's comments like

Thank you! It's comments like this that make me want to post a new tab every day. :)

Giving you 5 stars for recording a video to prove me wrong!

Also I played through the tab myself and realized it's not impossible but you might need to have slightly larger hands than mine to pull it off. I don't think I'd be able to make it sound as good as you did in the video without hurting myself. I dunno.

Anyway, good show! It's very pretty.

Fantastically painful!
