I haven't played the entire

I haven't played the entire thing yet, but there's a mistake in 5th measure (4th if you don't count the pickup measure). the open string on B should actually be replaced with a finger on the third fret. It doesn't sound correct with this tab because of the chord played before it, but if you compare it to the video, it is correct.

Thanks, Striker. I caught

I caught another mistake. The 11th measure (not counting pickup) should be:

You are truly an

You are truly an inspiration, your music has a soul that fills its listeners with life upon listening, you truly feel your music when you play it and you leave no emptiness(silence) of Ambience in the music, and you make tabs to help others, that is truly noble. I am working hard on the tabs. Watching your video and listening to your chords make me strive for perfection on this Masterpiece song. I thank you once and again and again. Thanx friend !
P.S Can't wait for the game MGS4

Joao, I agree with your first correction. I'm not sure if the second part is necessarily wrong but I think it can be improved upon. It doesn't sound quite right rhythmically.

What are the chords you use for the 5th and 6th sections, cause when i was playing i wasn't using chords, but in the video,you are, and it looks much easier that way, i just can't follow it or figure it out correctly through tabs

Okay, it appears I'm too

Okay, it appears I'm too stupid to figure out the rest of the song after the first part, could you please post the chords, or a tutorial? Because you are obviously doing chords instead of moving your fingers back and forth, but I just can't figure out which ones your using.

Sounds great on classical, and the arrangement perfect! One of my favorites

What does \1 mean? Its

What does \1 mean? Its optional to play?

It means to do an a slide

It means to do an a slide down from an indefinite note. The note doesn't have to be any in particular, I usually start three or four frets above or three or four frets below if it is an indefinite slide up.

GP5 version for y'all

Hey guys, first off props to cgseth for this great arrangement - I took the liberty of creating a Guitar Pro tab, it's kind of an amalgam of the tab here and the sheet pdf - It sounds spot on, but I'm always open to criticism :]
(I'm still new here, long time lurker)
Enjoy!

Metal Gear 2 - Zanzibar Breeze

Can anyone write a tab for Metal Gear 2: Zanzibar Breeze. Here's the link to the song:
Metal Gear 2: Zanzibar Breeze

In my opinion, one of the best 8-bit game songs.

Great song

Classic!

Epic.
