im liking all your tabs im

im liking all your tabs im playing. i have a question about how you arrange them if you don't mind answering. is playability something your emphasize over staying true to the original and to what extent? ie, rather than trying to stay in the original octave(?not sure if thats the right term)

like this instead of what you have written.


   e  e  e  e  e  e  e  s s

this is just an example, i'm not saying the measure i changed it into is particularly difficult, just that its harder

the reason i ask is cause i usually try to stay as close as i can to the original. while i was playing your tabs, say this one for example, i was thinking that measures like the one i changed above could be played like the original, but sometimes staying true to the original means having weird and almost unplayable chord positions.(i don't know if this was the case for this specific arrangement, i haven't tried changing the whole thing to stay in the original octave)

that said, i really liked your tabs i played, and feel that if i were to focus more on playability then i would have more tabs done. not that i will change my ways, im too stubborn.

sorry if anything i wrote is confusing.i hope i got my point across.

Good Question

Hey, thanks! I'm glad you like my comp style.

Yes you nailed it: My philosophy is typically stay true wherever I can but where it doesn't feel right on forming the chord or if it takes too long to crawl up the neck and back down, I'll make a sacrifice in octave. It bugs me to do it, because naturally then I sacrifice my ear instead... I want people to have fun playing, and I'm just an intermediate player myself (with smaller hands ha), so honestly I want to have fun playing them too (just a bit selfish). A big case of sacrifice in my other tabs you'll notice is DK 64 Jungle Japes. It's just hard enough to play as it is so I put it on the lower frets.

At the end of the day, what you do is your style and although there's right and wrong in this world, I don't think there's a right or wrong way to do it if you and others like your tabs! I'll make sure to check yours out and tell you what I think. Cheers!
