are you sure it's all good?
The last 3 notes, they sound a little bit low...
But still, it's pretty damn good...
This number is hard... it's difficult to play it so fast!

Yeah, difficult to play

Yeah, difficult to play fast, but this is one of the few songs on this site that i can play well! Its actually helped me improve my playing (still a beginner).

One or two of the notes seem a little off, but mabye thats just me, this is otherwise perfect.

Just listening to it, here

Just listening to it, here are the notes I think are off:

starting on the 4th line, the run down the high e string currently goes 3-2-1-0-0, but I think it should go:
e: 3-2-1---0
b: - - -3-4

on the...15th line down, at the end of the phrase, it goes
d: 2-2-0
but I think the last note should be a c(5th string 3rd fret)

Damn cool

Pour la fin, au lieu des 3 notes qui sortent d'on ne sait où, je fait ça (et oui je suis français aussi !):

For the last part, instead of the last 3 notes that are nonsense , I do this :

Just listening to it, here are the notes I think are off:

e: 3-2-1-—0
"

When I play it, I make a pause too instead of playing both 1/8th 0. At least I feel like it sounds better from what I remember of the theme.
Otherwise great tab : 4 stars !

I agree Oliv, it probably

I agree Oliv, it probably should be like that. But tablature is only really supposed to give a loose representation of time. It's up to you to listen to the song to get the timing down.

Hey. I just wanna say that you did a great job on this, and though there's a few minute mistakes, no one that I play this for notices. =P ...If that made sense... lol.

Anyways, this is one of the few songs I can play properly, so YAY!

I think after the e-3-2-1 it

I think after the e-3-2-1
it follows with B-------4-5

G------------2-2---2----------------------
D-----------------------------------------

pretty good, there were some

pretty good, there were some bits that were not even nearly right but some bits that contradicted even myself! three things about the last three notes:
1)after the last note (not including these three) they go down a string and keep going down a string with the frets 0,2,3.
2)they arent in the main theme, are they?
3)the last bit of tab is on the deathe tab only just above this one.

i hope that made sense.

the 2-2-0 sounds really

the 2-2-0 sounds really off...
none of the suggested endings seem right either
and i can't seem to figure it out myself

the 2-2-0 shouldn't really be

the 2-2-0 shouldn't really be there. It's part of the background piece.

Yay!

This was easy and fun even for a complete n00b like myself at guitar

I've never done any tabbing before, so i don't know if this is spaced correctly
but i think this would be a good ending :D

Let me know if that works?

this is true

i loved this but the best way to do it is play i how it is and drop th 2-2-0 at the end.

It is sure PERFECT!!! Great

Last four notes

Instead of the last four notes, I tend to play the game-over theme:
e-------------------------------------
B-------------------------------------
G--5---0-------2-4-2-1-3-1-0---
D----------2--------------------------
A-------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------

THIS PART SOUND BETTER LIKE THIS

I think this part will sound better
if you add a 3 after the

G------0--1-2

e--0---------------1-1-------5-5-5-3-1-0------
B----1---------------------0-----------------1----
G------0--1-2-3--------2-----------------------2-0

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

Ending

At the end, I think that this would sound fairly well.

-iCameiSawiPwned

It's Awsome but I think.........

At the end when you finish the tab you can do this:

.-------------------------------------------
.---1-------0-------------------------------
.-----0---2---3--2--3--2--------------------
.-------2------------------5--4---5---------
.-------------------------------------------
.-------------------------------------------

Do it going more and more slowly..............
