Not bad but you play it too

Not bad but you play it too sad with tempo too slow, I think it's really an epic song (despite the downstrokes everywhere) and never a sad one.

but that doesn't really

but that doesn't really warrant such a low rating now does it?

Hmmm... odd. No offense, but

Hmmm... odd. No offense, but giving a song a 2-star rating just because it seemed sad to you is kind of strange.

The great thing about an arrangement is having the freedom to create your own interpretation of a song.

I think this song invokes more of a "reflective" feeling from me. Like looking back on life with satisfaction.
Oh well, to each their own.

Well.. too bad you don't like

Well.. too bad you don't like it and that such a tense conversation came up from it. It doesn't really matter to me ;) I don't purposely play it slow though, this is just how I experience this particular arrangement of the song.

Though I do think it's odd to give something a low rating just because the performance doesn't satisfy your expectation of it (in this case, it sounding like the original). Usually, from what I gathered, ratings tend to be based on whether or not the performance was 'good' or not. But hey, it's a free world!

I was trying to express that

I was trying to express that your cover gave me a satisfied reflective feeling, which differed from diralark`s sad interpretation. Showing how a song effects everyone differently and that it seemed weird to rate a cover based on an expectation of a mood when the mood is particular to the individual. I Kind of failed though haha. Sorry if I seemed a little defensive I just really liked how you played it and was confused with the bad rating. :-) Peace

Oh, my post was a reply to

Oh, my post was a reply to diralark's post, hehe ^^; But yeah, a song can definitely evoke different emotions in different people. So I agree that giving a rating based on that.. is a bit odd. And you didn't fail!

And I'm glad you liked it! :)

Ouais dsl pour avoir pourri

Ouais dsl pour avoir pourri ton topic, pour ma défense, j'étais pas tous seuls :) Concernant les 2 étoiles Ben disons que j'adore tes vidéos en général donc là j'ai été déçu par le choix du tempo et aussi (sois honnêtes !) le fait que tu maitrise pas parfaitement la partoche comme c'est habituellement le cas ; si tu rajoutes à cela le fait que c'est mon compositeur préféré et probablement aussi ma partoche ô combien préférée parmi toutes et ainsi TOTALEMENT sacralisée du coup, il n'est pas étonnant que je sois ferme et sur la critique à ton intention, et sur le refus d'ouvrir mon esprit à une quelconque erreur de jugement, moi me trompé ? hahaha même pas en rêve. Sur-réagir ? probablement, mais bon quand c'est le cœur qui parle... Bref "qui aime bien châtie bien" ça peut se résumer ainsi. Je remarque aussi qu'avec le système des 5 étoiles je ne peut pas modérer ma critique, c'est soit j’aime avec 3 etoiles, sois je dis c'est "OKAY" avec 2 etoiles, ce qui sera instantanément perçu comme un attentat, c'est pas pratique. J'opterai plus pour un système à 4/6 étoiles ce qui permettra de noter 2/3 et ainsi ne pas se mouiller ni de créer l'indignation et les dérapages qui s'en suivent. En tout cas je te souhaite une bonne année et continue de poster des vidéos, j'en suis fan même si c'est à une exception près ^^

You realize she didn't write

You realize she didn't write this arrangement right? If you have a problem with the arrangement then say you don't like the arrangement but don't rate based on performance and complain about the way the original arranger plays it as well.

You can look up Daisuke Minamizawa -Ashitakas theme and you will see pretty much everyone plays it the same (probably because they are all using the same tab).

It's kind of stupid to complain about arrangements not being identical to the original, they're not supposed to be identical.

Heh. Crap. Daisuke

Heh. Crap. Daisuke Minamizawa has requested that no recordings of his arrangements be posted on Gametabs. Sorry.

(I edited out the embed, but you can still find it on her Youtube page.)

Seriously? He even commented

Seriously? He even commented "Thank you for playing my arrangement!" on her video, but w/e.

Now I look like an asshole for bringing it up.

Sorry, I have no idea why

Sorry, I have no idea why he'd ask us to take down any Youtube-embedded videos of his arrangements, then post approving comments on Youtube itself. :-/

Oh :o That's a bit odd.. Oh

Oh :o That's a bit odd.. Oh well!

Karathrow, Don't worry about

Karathrow, Don't worry about your full misunderstanding, wrote by high educated person, french becomes a very complex language, I don't think a Google translation can't help a lot. It's a kind of "encryption", for French speaker only ^^

reminds I left a comment in this theme tab about his copyright violation, because the tab is sold, then I invite everyone to buy the official tab, all arrangements are awesome, the official page where u can hear its is :

I think Google Translate is bad at every language, though it's worse at some than others. It's particularly bad at Japanese :-)

I tried to translate your post with my meager French skills:

Yeah, sorry for ruining your topic, but in my defense, I wasn't the only one :) Concerning the 2 stars, well, I have to say that I love your videos in general, so I was a bit disappointed by your choice of tempo and (to be honest!) that you didn't quite master the arrangement like you usually do. On top of that, this is my favorite composer and probably my favorite arrangement of all time. I consider it TOTALLY sacred, so it's not surprising that I'm firm in my critique of your intention and in my refusal to even consider I've made an error of judgment. Am I mistaken? Hahaha, not in your dreams! Overreacting? Probably, but it's good to speak from the heart. There's a French proverb, "qui aime bien châtie bien". It means "he who likes well, chastises well", which sums up what I'm trying to say. I'd also like to note that with the 5-star system I can't moderate my critique. Since 3 stars means I like it, while 2 stars means "OKAY", which will instantly be perceived as an attack, it's impractical. I'd prefer a system with 4/6 stars which allows selecting 2/3 without risking the cries of indignation and the verbal escalation that inevitably follows. In any case, I wish you a good year and hope that you continue to post videos. I'm a fan of yours, even if I'm not a fan of this particular video.

Fifteen years since French class. Woo!

Ho thanks for your

Ho thanks for your translation, I just learned new words reading it. u wrote "Meager french skills" !!?? are you kidding ?.. As far I can say it seems really accurate, and let think you was a serious student with a durable memory.
Btw in this Japanese tabs book there's a lot of explanations about how play the arrangements but Only in Japanese language T_T
I sometimes though it deserves a try with "Google translator" well I think now it's a vain quest, or only for fun during a rainy day maybe.
In contrast, for people knowing Japanese, this book-song can also learn new guitar skills about each songs, this is a good "addon".

I was proud of being one of the few who could understand it in French. Now snailri ruined that ;A;

Hehehe. Sorry xD

Karathrow, Don't worry about your full misunderstanding

I'm not worried since I didn't misunderstand anything. Although you certainly seem to misunderstand your self-worth since you think your opinion is God's gift to gametabs. Your opinion isn't worth the paper I wipe my ass with.

"you think your opinion is

"you think your opinion is God's gift to gametabs"

Okay, well let's read my msg (in english, forget the french one, it's so obvious u can't read or understand french bro) and find where I said my opinion is best than others, after done, report us right here. I can give u a clue : just skip the msg where I wrote "My heart & my ears feel free to like or dislike something, also my opinion / note is same value than yours" hoping it can help you to success in that holy quest, now it's time young warrior, go ! good luck :D

"Your opinion isn't worth the paper I wipe my ass with."

Wahoo thank you to raise the debate ^^
I known paper is from Trees who are probably the most beautiful things living on earth in my opinion (I mean my God one ;-) ... So it's nothing bad with toilet paper dude, it just can't be, sad you misunderstood that also... Now show a little more respect to your toilet paper, would you ?

Uhh okay.....?
"to each their own" is a saying that basically means each person is entitled to their own respected opinions/beliefs or what have you.
Maybe there's some lost in translation situation going on here :-)

I just thought that a rating should be based more on technical issues like bad playing or crappy microphone, right?
Not "This song makes my eyes rain. Bad recording" haha hope the new year brings happiness to you my friend.

Nobody said you weren't entitled to your opinion. You're being a little defensive when no one's really attacking you. People are just disagreeing with you. Nothing to get upset about.

With lower ratings it feels more like people are jumping at you and demand a clear justification how and why and where exactly this does not deserve full rating. Which sucks.

This one sounds fine to me.

Haven't watched the movie in forever, although it did come up in conversation the other day so I think I'm gonna do a re-watch.

O and great cover!

1 star mean "poor"
2 star mean "OKAY" <------- I CHOOSE IT
3 star mean "good"
etc...

I didn't realize vote to tell : "your recording is "OKAY" " adding a critic about tempo too low (just to help the guitarist because I know the real tempo, having the original CD of the official tablature) can create a Troll like that but apparently I created a monster growing more each days like a chain of unending disagrees, multiplying themself.. reminds me old tales, even Ghibli anime itself, it's a kind of fantasy here..

See you are assuming that an arrangement has to be exact to the tempo of the original.
The point I was making is that an arrangement has the freedom to be whatever tempo or make any changes you want while keeping the song recognizable.
I can't say whether or not the person who did this recording purposely slowed it down to give it a different flow but you need to understand that could be the case.
Bottom line, aparrently you're basing your rating solely off of tempo. Seems irrational to me.

P.S. Calling someone a "troll" just reflects on your true intentions. Learn to be more open-minded. Peace

Ok I m gonna learn to be more

Ok I m gonna learn to be more open-minded, I promess... But I m pretty sure I definitly doesn't like this tune with slow tempo, I don't think I can't change it even a total opened mind, but we'll c ...I just noticed u critic my notation & I didn't critic your notation, but I'm gonna just be more open mind oh yeah it will be good for me, anyway it s a promess so...It wasn't you the troll, it was the message which creates the polemic. I admit my english can be confusing, it is not my language, but i'm always happy to improve my knowledges. I'm sorry if u thought I'm insulted you, I don't do that because I don't like insult people, especially people I don't know. How can I even judge someone I doesn't know, it will be irrationnal isn' it ? I hope this is the end, this polemic must ended now in the Maiko topic ; My fresh opened mind invited u to continue in private (MP) only if u need coz personally I'm a bit tired of this. People have different point of view , that's just OKAY fo me, it's life, it's human. Cya bro

One of my favourite song from an anime. Nice recording.
Not "perfect" but I truly like it. You don't deserve less than 4 stars.
