I appreciate your nice

I appreciate your nice comments ! For me, the bars from 23th to 26th wasn't easy to play at beginning, but it becomes OK after some training :)
Btw here's the original arrangement for piano by that so pretty & talentuous pianist called Aivi Tran :

YES!!!!

this is soooo awesome!! i am going to try and learn how to play this! thank you for the tab!! ^_^

Thank you !

for info : if u play on nylon guitar, put a capo on 2th bar then the fingersteps become easier (it s like that I play it), have fun :D

Good fucking job, dirakark

Good fucking job, dirakark. I'm mad I just saw this one now lol

Thank you ! I like this tab

Thank you ! I like this tab too ^^

edit : I though the same idea than you when I found it today http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpcXr5LtsYA&list=PL7F4F5CFA2557A23E&index=3

How the..

Is this entire song supposed to be played with "let ring" for every note?
I find bar 53,54,55 and 59 to be impossible stretches or positioning to be able to let all the notes ring :/

U right ! Bass notes can't be

U right ! Bass notes can't be "sustained" all times and especially during the bars u wrote about.
"let ring" as I wrote just meant for me "don't worry about the duration notation" coz anyway it won't sound wrong (really wrong). When I play my tabs, I never care about notes duration (except if a silence, stacatto... exists), I only try to let the bass note rings during the whole bar ; if I can, else I let it be ^^

okey thanks.. I thought I was

okey thanks.. I thought I was doing something wrong.. or I was a finger short lol..
I found it easier to play bar 21-22 on fret 5, 7 and 8, all notes will ring and closer switch to bar 23. This is great stuff! No one recorded this yet?

Yep it's e good idear because

Yep it's e good idear because these bars are tricky. If it can help, In my last version (at home) I play bar 21-23 like that :

               V(4)                  V(4)  
  E  E   E  E  E  E     E  E   E  E  E  E

V(4) mean a little bar chords using the 4th fingers (shorter)

I believed it's the more confortable fingersteps I could find for a guitar nylon & without capo using.

This is how I play that part

Not the best, but I might change the last part and record it again.

Oh it's an interesting

Oh it's an interesting variation, I ll try it yesterday at high speed, I can't now people sleeps nearby (-_-) Your performance give a good idea about how to play it, I like people post video based on my work, it flatters my ego haha thanks ^^
I encourage you to train more on this tune, it's a very beautiful one, as a lot of Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess songs anyway. I noticed it sounds very different from my guitar since my strings are stronger (more tense), and also it probably help me to let the strings rings, especially bass notes, I must say I prefer this aggressive sounds, and play this song in aggressive way too, just a question of taste/feeling.
