Very nice archard keep up

Very nice archard keep up the good work!

this is awesome

this is awesome

I cried when she died. This

5

I cried when she died. This song made me play FF7 over from the very beginning to the end. And with me being a gaming freak, I had to find every little secret within the game.

Fantasitc, cant wait to

Fantasitc, cant wait to learn this so i can shut everyone up by showing them my guitar is not a phase >.<

lol, i think i cried more

lol, i think i cried more when i was at the part at the very end... and then all my characters were sitting on the edge waiting for me to jump in and i was being stupid and used my save crystal and now i can't do anything... it sucks

just so you know, you can

just so you know, you can actually climb back up and get out of the crater. there's a door you can go through and climb out with. I did the same thing and thought I was stuck, but you can go through this one door and then just run/climb up to the highwind's ladder.

im not expert at this... but

im not expert at this... but in the first part where it goes 4 2 3 2 0 ETC... that 0 sounds a little off? is that just my guitar?

I didn't cry when Aeris

5

I didn't cry when Aeris died. I jumped for joy and did a jig. She always annoyed me to pieces, I hated her. Her and Tifa. So irritating. Come to think of it, almost all of the characters annoyed me. Red was cool, though. And Reno.

I always root for the bad guys, anywho. :/

The good guys being stupid hasn't stopped me from conquering the game four times, all secrets completed.

Kefka > Sephiroth. Sephirtoh was just messed up in the head. Kefka was pure evil.

...Anyway, back on topic. Very nicely tabbed. I've tried a few others which are a lot higher-pitched, but I think I prefer this one. Much simpler. Five'd.

I didn't cry either! I

I didn't cry either! I cried for two days when Alys Brangwin from Phantasy Star IV kicked the bucket. Aeris I saw coming a mile away so I really didn't get too bummed out. I generally prefer the more double-sided characters too, and she was pure good and that was sorta boring. But Sephiroth is a whiny baby. Kefka was the friggen MAN.

And someone else said they named their second kid Aeris..I know somebody who did that, also. Apparently its becoming more common, but thats cool.

And as far as the tab, when I figured this song out, the melody was exactly as you have it, but I had all the harmonics to go along with it, i was debating submitting it becuase I figured there was a more accurate version than mine out there, but I might now, because its almost the same tab only its more than just the melody, and it might help out some people.

I have to say, hearing this

5

I have to say, hearing this song always makes me smile, but I cry anyway. I don't care what anyone says, I played this game about two or three years ago when I was 14. I knew it was coming, I knew she was going to die.

Even so, when it actually happened, I cried and I then actually felt angry at sephiroth for killing her and the anger was somehow intenisfied by the fact that due to certain materia on cloud, he was invincible for the following boss fight.

It is easily the most recognized song in Final Fantasy besides one winged angel and the victory music. And Archard, you are my hero for tabing so many songs and making them so easy to play. Keep doing what you doing, and I'll keep on playing them.

has anyone tabs to play the

has anyone tabs to play the accompaniment for this song so me and my friend can play it together

I just finished Crisis Core

5

I just finished Crisis Core and I almost cry when Zack was killed. Now I understand better the whole Cloud-Aeris thing.

I almost cried when aeris

5

I almost cried when aeris died, but whenever i heard the song from the ancient village, my stomach would hurt, i just recently got over that. But yeah, this is a great tab, and i miss aeris. crisis core was amazing, truly and definitely amazing. I miss zack too.

ummm. why do people keep

ummm. why do people keep calling you Archard when your name is Richard?¿?¿?¿

does anyone know this for

does anyone know this for violin or piano?

just find out what notes are

just find out what notes are being played and convert it over to violin or piano

tthis is good it only took

5

tthis is good it only took me an hour to learn it and im just a noob so this tab seems to be simple enough but follows the sound exactly

This is Snake. Gametabs, can

This is Snake. Gametabs, can you hear me?

I played Final Fantasy VII shortly before fighting in Zanzibar Land. Even tough guys like me get emotional, and I can tell you, I was saddened deeply by Aeris' death. This music is excellent.

Archard, there's no one I'd rather have in a foxhole than you.

man this song is so

5

man this song is so beutiful and easy to play thx for tabing it =D

tab is awesome thanks a

tab is awesome thanks a bunch. im playin ff7 again, its the best game ever u get really attached to it. its kinda set me on an ff campaign to get every piece of ff merchandise i can and all the games. aerith is my favourite female character

Thanks Alot

I created an account to tell you thank you.
Me and my two best friends played this game like crazy when we were younger.
This music really is an important part to the game.
Of course, I'd like the music whether it was part of the game or not.

Every once in awhile my friends get to feeling bad.
They turn to me while I'm strumming my guitar lightly and they say:
"Hey play Aeris theme."
I do and everybody gets silent no matter where we are.

I told em' I'd play it at their funerals if I out live them.
And, I demand it at mine as well.
You know some of Mozart's best stuff came from his operas.
I wonder if video game composers will be seen for their talent.
Granted they're not all fantastic, but Uematsu is something different.

Final Fantasy IX has some great music like the them to Dali or Freya's theme.

Thanks again.

I owe you thanks, good ser.

5

Archard, Thank you for creating such a fantastic tab for a wonderful composition. It's simple enough that a n00b like me can play it, yet it still allows all of the emotion that the song conveys to come across. Excellent work.

On another note, honestly, I cried more when Zack fell than I did when Aerith passed... Aerith went to the Forgotten City knowing it was going to be her grave... Then again, I suppose that Zack knew that that last fight was going to be his end as well. I still tear up whenever I hear those last words: "Hey, Cloud... Do you think I became a hero...?" In my eyes, I can't answer anything other than absolutely.

Fricken A

Love the tab but never like aeris. Red XIII ftw!

if i were to describe my teen

5

if i were to describe my teen years in 3 words it would be final fantasy 7, and being able to play these songs from the game, well its something else. i still cry when i see aeris die. but i digress, archard, u r a god amongst ants and i bow down to u!

Thank you very much
