I love the song so much.^^

great dude... got the lyrics

great dude...
got the lyrics in english?

Wow, I can't tell you how

Wow, I can't tell you how hard it has been to work up to this kind of level. This tab is so long it looks super hard but after a while you fall into the mode. Great tab! Love it! Not even that hard really!

This tab is actually

This tab is actually surprisingly easy because it's very repetitive and the fingerings are not tough at all.

im kinda new to guitar and i

im kinda new to guitar and i was wondering how to finger this part can anyone plz help me

Take the index finger of the

Take the index finger of the left hand and bar it over fret 2, meaning lay that finger flat over all the strings on fret 2. Now slide the index finger back one string so you're leaving the 6th string, the low E open. Take your ring finger and put it on 4th string 4th fret, your pinky on 3rd string 4th fret, and your middle on 2nd string 3rd fret. Like this:

--2(Index)
--3(Middle)
--4(Pinky)
--4(Ring)
--2(Index)
--x

When you get to the part where it changes, all you need to do is slide your index finger back one more string so the bottom 2 strings are open. Leave your ring finger right where it is but take all the other fingers off but those two.

--2(Index)
--2(Index)
--2(Index)
--4(Ring)
--0(Open)
--x

I would practice switching between those two formations back and forth to get a feel for how you have to slide your index finger from the first chord two the second. If you find that your hand can't support the bar in the second chord, you could consider playing the 4 with the pinky instead of the ring as it will add a bit more stability to your hand.

thanks for your help i saw

thanks for your help i saw your video on youtube for this song ur amazing

yeah archard is right. Once

yeah archard is right. Once you get the pattern down it's not that hard, though it can look very difficult. Definetly we have much more difficult stuff on the site.

i LOVE this song, its the most relaxing song to play, no matter where i am, if i find a guitar, ill play this just because its a fun song, and somebody always is like "wow, thats really nice!" , but the best part is that my friend said that i would "never be able to learn it!!!" i sure showed him

I absolutely love this song and have been practicing, ^_^' still pretty bad though. Great Tab!
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions to getting it to sound like the song, especially in the begining. I am currently using a soft pick, is this wrong? I tried finger picking but I deff. suck at that. XD
Thanks for the help, and again, beautiful song/tab!

I really love this song, and

5

I really love this song, and this tab is really easy to play from. Yayyy =)
For those of you who are struggling with how to play/it doesn't sound right when you play it using this tab, go to youtube and look up "radical dreamers" or "without taking the jewel" and check out some of the videos. Seeing the rhythm and stuff reallyyy helps.
Also, this song is impossible with a pick. You _have_to finger pick because of the way it is. There's really no way around it...

This is the best tab that

5

This is the best tab that I've seen so far for this song (though I play it slightly differently). And what a great song it is too. It's sure to impress if you can play it.
And actually, this was one of the first songs I learned how to play on guitar when I started (and partly the reason I began in the first place). The fingerings aren't too difficult and the tempo is manageable; it just takes a lot of persistence and practice, and it's well worth the effort.

I agree

With all of that really. This song is one of the main drivers for me learning guitar, and this tab is one of the cleanest of it I've seen. Now if only I could get my fingers to cooperate...

another fantastic tab. well

CURSE MY CHUBBY DIGITS!!!!!i cant do the last half where it changes to the 2 on the A chord.....makes me so sad *cries a man tear*

Yeah, but...

I don't READ tabs, dang it! I want the CHORDS! I can just about play the song, with the exception of one or two variations on teh chordal structure that I can't quite get. I play it as: G-Am-Bm-Am then G-Am-Em (then E)
then G-Am-Bm-Am then G-Am-B (natural)
then repeat...but there are some twists that I can't sound out because it's all fingerpicking and I can't catch the chords that the patterns are based on...And these freaking stupid tabs look like hieroglyphics to me!!!

It's simple. Each number on

It's simple. Each number on the E string of the tab represents a fret on the E string of your guitar and same goes for the rest of the strings. (E|---3-- = 3rd fret on E string / A|---0-- = open on A string)

Great tab! I have one

Great tab! I have one suggested change that makes one little section easier (and allows the strings to ring like in the original):

Instead of:

Easily the best tab of this

5

Easily the best tab of this song. Really easy to follow and as precise as you can be with only one guitar. I can almost play it by memory now because of this. Thanks a bunch. ^^
Also, at the very last strum, instead of sliding your finger to the fifth fret and then back again quickly, I usually just strum all the way down, with the bottom string being open, and then quickly strum the fifth string with my thumb to cancel out the sound of the bottom string. It makes the same effect, but it's easier to play (at least for me). :P
