Ahh, out of curiosity could someone remake this tab and separate the melody and the main? I'd be nice to play one or the other. Not that this one is bad or too hard, I'd just like to see what it sounds like alone.

What's with all those Es an

What's with all those Es an Hs?? dont get it...

they are marking the note

they are marking the note duration. I'm going to simplfy this a bit so just know that this is relative to this particular piece. Think of it this way, this piece is in 3/4 time. What this means is that the main beat is in quarter notes and that there are 3 quarter notes for every measure. That may sound a little confusing so listen to this midi for an example.

http://two.xthost.info/kabukibear/4.MID

The drum beat I added is the main beat. It would be what you tap your foot or bob to if you were listening to it on the radio. There are 3 of those for every measure in this piece and they are called quarter notes. The reason they're called this is that a lot of music is written in 4/4 time which means there are 4 quarter notes in each measure. They break up the measure into 4 equal parts or "quarters," hence the name. You'll notice, however, that the guitar part is playing twice as many notes. What I mean is, for ever quarter note you hear on the drum, the guitar plays 2 notes. What it is doing is dividing each beat in half. So if you have 3 quarter notes in a measure, and the guitar plays 2 notes for every 1 quarter, what do you have? 6 EIGHTH notes. You see how that works? of you divide 3 quarter notes in half equally you get 6 eighth notes. These notes are half as long as quarter notes, meaning they sound and are played twice as fast. Count it out. If quarter notes are counted 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, then eighth notes are counted 1, and, 2, and, 3, and, etc. Just fit the ands in between each number you count. If you are tapping your foot, your foot should hit on each number and come up on each and. It's all very mathmatical. That's all the letters mean, they are telling you how long to play the notes. In this case a lot of the notes are eighth notes, or E, so again, listen to how that works in the midi I included. Every time your foot hits, the guitar plays 2 equal notes.

H means halfnote. It follows the same principles as the others. If you remember that the fundamental beat in this piece is quarter notes, and you know that to make smaller note durations you split those quarters apart, then to make BIGGER note durations, it follows that you are adding those quarter notes together. A half note is equal to 2 quarter notes tied together. So it gets two beats. Now notice the dot that comes after the H? whenver you see a note duration with a dot after it, what it is telling you to do is to split the note in half, and add that half to the original note. Sound confusing? It really isn't. Think of it like this, a dotted half note...we already said that a half note is equal to 2 quarter notes yes? So a dotted half note means it is still equal to 2 quarter notes, but on top of that you add half of itself TO itself. So if a half note is equal to 2, then half of that is 1, so a dotted half note is equal to 2 + 1 or 3 beats. Since there are 3 beats per measure in this piece what it is telling you is to hold the note for all 3 beats of the measure.

I know this might all seem a little confusing but it can't hurt to reread what I wrote and listen to the midi again. Just know that they are ways of splitting up the measures of music evenly, so you know how long or short to play each note. I hope that helped somewhat.

Love this one!

Love this one! I heard this one a while back but even though i loved the sound it had I didn't think it was interesting enough to keep me practicing. But that all just turned around :P. Thanks a bunch for the tab!

If he still came on, I'd tell

If he still came on, I'd tell kabuki that this tab is awesome. but it's awesome either way.

thanks man! i love it

thanks man! i love it

Well, the tab isn't correct.

Well, the tab isn't correct. In the intro, the seventh note shouldn't be there. It all are parts of 6 notes, now you got 7. Besides, the tab doesn't seem to try to use chords.

Anyway, hope it's fun when I can play it.

EDIT: Well sorry, I won't play this. This isn't what I call playing a guitar. Nice done anyway.

I take it you don't play

I take it you don't play fingerstyle. What would you call playing a guitar?

Sure, I know you need to play

Sure, I know you need to play this fingerpicking but the way he composed this is not looking good to me.

They're not marked, but there are chords all over, just arpeggiated. This is the weirdest comment!

any reason for this not being in the top50 ? ;) Except not using chords of course

There are two main

There are two main requirements to be one of the top tabs:

1. Be composed by Kabukibear
2. Be published in 2007

Since this tab meets both, it is clearly an oversight. The artificial intelligence oversight committee will be called into session at the earliest possible convenience.

Actually, if you take a

Actually, if you take a closer look, you'll notice that archard claims most spots in the 50 top tabs. So let me add one more requirement:

3. Be from an overpopular game everyone knows.

ICO fails this one, so here ya go. =)

It's him in disguise!

It's Kabukibear in disguise!

Oh shiz!

How did we not notice earlier?

Impressive disguising skills
