Wow this is really cool. Kinda tough to play but still very playable. Very good job.

How come the tab doesn't have duration markers though?

Wow...I'm speechless. This is REALLY nice. The passing harmonies are awesomely dissonant and just gorgeous. I really like this alot. Great job. Puts my arrangements to shame hehe.

"How come the tab doesn't have duration markers though?"

Well, I don't really like them, they make a tab seem more cluttered and they make it difficult to write in fingerings and whatnot if I print it off, so I thought I'd try doing away with them to see if someone noticed...and you did! right away, too. What do you guys think? Should I keep them in?

And thanks for the positive feedback, guys. I think this is actually the first true arrangement I've made - I'd consider what I mostly do to be more guitar adaptations that require changing to fit the guitar than actual arrangements, but it's just semantics. I'll have to try doing this again sometime.

This is great Stamen, but I

This is great Stamen, but I too noticed there weren't any time markers.
I think it's best to leave them because it's easier for us to read if we don't listen to the song.
Either way, great work!
It sounds just awesome.

Actually... Lol Would it be

Actually... Lol
Would it be okay for you to add the version with the duration markers?
It's kind of hard to play how it's supposed to sound, at my own pace, without them.
Thanks.

hi, sorry im quite new to

hi, sorry im quite new to reading tabs and such, but when you have capo 3 like it says, thats telling me to slap on a capo at the third fret right? if so how do i play the notes where it says 1st fret and 2nd etc?

When you have a capo, all

When you have a capo, all the notes are now in relation to the capo'd fret. So fret 1 would be the first fret after the capo, or the 4th fret if there was no capo.

thanks for that info, now i

thanks for that info, now i just gotta get a capo, god i cant wait to play this beast

I feel mediocre

I feel mediocre, in both playing and writing, this is the first tab i've ever come across that i cannot get pinned down, as well as perhaps the most interesting. absolutely genius!

It's so amazing and

It's so amazing and frustranting to try at the same time. You are the man, sir Stamen!

This is fantastic

This is really great. My favourite Tab on this site. Challenging but worth every minute of practise to learn it.

I'm absolutely speechless in front of this kind of degree of awesomeness.

THANK YOU SO MUCH Stamen47 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've come up with a new chord

I've come up with a new chord for the end, and I redid the fingering of the last 2 measures to make it easier, and to make it ring out better.

Tell me what you guys think.

instead of this:

Baller. Sending me to the guitar. Not to play that though, because tears.

Also, it messed with my head, you being left handed.

Oh hey, I missed your comment

Oh hey, I missed your comment on this one! I'm glad I got you back to your guitar!

(and it messes with my head to see a left handed guitar player too, I don't see it from the same angle unless I see a recording of myself. You guys look the same as me playing in the mirror)

I guess I didn't rate this

I guess I didn't rate this before, but definitely 5 stars. Above and beyond. Maybe one day I'll tackle it.

Did you watch the video of me

Did you watch the video of me playing this song?

oh shit, of course you did,

oh shit, of course you did, you commented on it earlier. I must have misread your name, thought you were a different person that posted earlier =)
