GTYNP: Final Fantasy VIII - Blue Fields

Posted in GTYNP

ffviii3.jpgJust to prove that I'm not dead, I decided to post up a long overdue Greatest Tab You've Never Played. For those of you who don't know, this is where I post up a relatively unknown tab in hopes that it will receive some recognition from those who missed it.

This time I'm posting Stamen47's arrangement of "Blue Fields" from Final Fantasy VIII. Now when I say arrangement, I really mean arrangement. Stamen takes a lot of creative liberty in this piece and really turns it into something that sounds amazing on guitar. It's a little bit difficult to play, but not too hard to get the hang of. Great job Stamen.

Take a look at the side by side comparison between the original Blue Fields midi and Stamen47's arrangement. Or just view the tab.

New Feature: Favorites Lists

I know there's been a whole bunch of little issues cropping up all over the place since I upgraded the site, which I'm working on, but I figured that while I sort everything out I might as well give you guys something which has been a long awaited feature of the site (and in fact made possible only by the recent upgrades).

So without further ado, I present Favorites Lists!!! :D :D :D =0 <3 <3 *-* o_0 <(O-O)>

You'll notice under your "My account" link is a "My favorites" link. This is where your very own, personalized, unique and special list of favorite tabs goes. To add a tab to your favorites list, all you have to do is click the "Add to favorites" link, which now appears on every tab below the five star rating (this location will most likely change in the near future). You can seemlessly add and remove tabs from your list there, as well as remove them straight from the list itself. Tabs will be sorted alphabetically by game first, then by title of the song. You can favorite as many tabs as you wish. Now have at it =D

New Layout, woo... hoo?

I had hoped to write a more cheerful message when I got this layout up, but unfortunately I ran into a few issues while doing so. I also attempted to upgrade a bunch of stuff as well as switch to a new forum software (and hopefully resolve the login issues that so many of you have been having), and long story short, I've simply run into some unexpected problems that have prevented a good portion of the site from being functional, for now.

The good news is that all the tabs and categories are up, as well as ratings and comments. But the forum and recordings section are gonna be down for now, and some things are just a little out of whack. Once again I chose to make major upgrades to the site late at night, and once again I run into issues that need a good night sleep to resolve. So I apologize for coming up short this time, but just sit tight, everything will be back soon better than ever.

***UPDATE*** Recordings section now back online.

***UPDATE 2*** Added links to category pages on Browse Tabs menu.

***UPDATE 3*** Add Latest Transcriptions and Latest Arrangements menus to the front page. Now you can view the latest tabs broken out into arrangements and transcriptions.

***UPDATE 4*** Added Top Rated Tabs page.

***UPDATE 5*** Forum is back up, as well as user profiles.
