OMG!!! PWNAGE DUDE!! YOU

OMG!!! PWNAGE DUDE!! YOU ROCK!! THIS TAB IS SO L33T!!! GREAT JOB!!

I agree, very leet tab

I agree, very leet tab

Man, sometimes I

Man, sometimes I wonder...this isn't even in the top 10 anymore but stuff that's like 3 lines long is? I think the rating system needs a revamp. No offense, I'm sure I'm partial and all, but still, that's a little ridiculous.

personally I think the top

personally I think the top 10 is more of a nostalgia meter. Some of the best tabs here haven't been rated. That's mainly because no one plays them because their not from popular games.

I know man it's kind of

I know man it's kind of messed up but there's not much I can do about it. I can only make average rating determine the top 10. Maybe when I move the site to the new CMS I can make top 10 lists by category, like one for classical tabs, another for electric, etc.

Yeah, I just wish it could

Yeah, I just wish it could do like rounded numbers. It sucks that, because something has more ratings and has more a possibility of being rated, the likelyhood that SOMEONE will rate it lower increases. A tab that has 10 five stars and 1 four star loses out to a tab that has 2 five stars. Is there any way to round? Like 4.5 and up is considered a 5 star while 4.4 down to 3.5 is considered 4 star? I dunno if that's even possible. Just a slight gripe is all.

And yeah that's true too Ron. It's a bummer because there are some real gems from obscure games.

Perhaps it would be cool to

Perhaps it would be cool to have a like a weekly column or something like, "Great tab you've never heard of." or something that highlights some of the great unpopular tabs on the site.

Also what I can do is make

Also what I can do is make it so you have to be logged in to rate a tab. That way we don't get any random 12 year olds giving tabs 1 star ratings for no reason. Also I like that idea ron, I will start something like that when I move over to the new site.

I was wondering if it was

I was wondering if it was possible for someone to make a printer-friendly version of this, making it so that no bars are left partially on one page and having the rest on another.
Everytime I tried to format the tab into a page-by-page print out, I was left with parts of one bar on one page and the rest on another.

that'd be tricky but

that'd be tricky but possible

Nevermind, nevermind. MS

Nevermind, nevermind.
MS Word does its job very well.

@ superdoughboy4 you should

@ superdoughboy4

you should use the pdf to print. it has tabs and is nice and shiny.

Very nice tab. One question

Very nice tab. One question though, How come you made it into 8th notes when it sounds like 16th at least?

Note durations are relative.

Note durations are relative. This is written as 8th notes at 192 bpm (beats per minute) which is the same as saying 16th notes at 96 bpm. I chose 8th notes because I felt it would be easier to read, with more space between the notes. 16th notes would've been all jammed together.

awesome tab kabuki!

awesome tab kabuki!

Kabukibear, that totally

Kabukibear, that totally makes sense now. Since, I started taking guitar class this semester, it is understandable.

wow

i... cant play this in my lifetime

wasnt this originally composed for keyboard?

I'm officially rating this the impossible tab

5

Not saying it can't be done, but I couldn't play this if my life depended on it. Of course, I can't finger pick anything so that could be the reason. One question. How come you haven't shown us a video of you playing this. I just wanna see your fingers moving to this. Plz make one.

P.S. you are god.

because it's hard as shit!

because it's hard as shit! LOL, I can play it but I stumble a lot here and there. I prefer not recording myself until I can play a piece with as few mistakes as possible, since a lot of people use my videos to practice with.

=3

Lol this tab is damn awsome! a challenge i must accomplish. thank you, man!

i'll try to play this, maybe

i'll try to play this, maybe not that speed but a bit slower, i don't know how long i can go with this... but ill try anyway just because it's really cool arrangement

awesome tab

but what is this from? i cant remember this song

One of the final boss songs I think, before One-Winged Angel.

Hey, Kabukibear. I've been picking this tab up here and there for the past, what? Year or so?

It's definitely possible to play it up to speed, but I've started to learn it over, adding a bit of percussive fingerstyle here and there, especially around the break down near measure 74. I'll let you know how that goes (let's see if I stop being a cheap bastard and pick me up a webcam or something).

Just wanted to let you know I was a fan, and have been ever since your Eternity tab waaaaaay back when (shame you deleted your old account, I'd love for you to add your old videos on your new one). Thanks for tabbing out such great songs!

P.S. You should totally arrange Piano Collection version of Wind Crest :P

I started to, but - dammit - I just don't have the patience for such a thing. Some people were born with that kinda talent, I suppose.
