Now if only we could see you

Now if only we could see you play one of these :(

If I ever get a preamp for my

If I ever get a preamp for my K&K pickup, I'll at least be able to record audio lol. Currently, though, I have an impedance mismatch with my sound card and anything I record sounds absolutely horrible. D:

Beyond that, I actually made most of this tab quite a while ago and finally went back to finish it. I admittedly haven't practiced it much lately and just made sure the new parts were playable.

Get a mic! :-D

Get a mic! :-D

Holy shit Auri! That was the

Holy shit Auri! That was the fastest response known to man lol.

I was thinking of getting one of those Shure SM57/58 microphones as it is a bit cheaper than the preamp I'd like, but I currently don't have the money D:

Nate is gametabs #1 tease.

I totally want to play this,

I totally want to play this, I really do, but I have no clue how this is performed correctly. Do I have to "strum" the E string with my thumb or strum with my index, or no strumming at all, am I just to slow to play it correctly or is there some kinda trick to it.. I just don't know :/

This is the first time that a video example would really help me out, the way I play it right now feels just awkward.

If you could be more specific

If you could be more specific as to which part, I could probably give some better advice. Also, there is a help file in the zip that might be able to clear something up.

Okay the help-file is really

Okay the help-file is really useful, haven't seen that before! But still, there are some really confusing parts like the tap-and-hold-5th-fret-and-upstroke thing or the T.P. Upstrokes throughout the entire tab but.. oh well... Lets see if youtube can show me how it's done correctly :P

But still, a recording would be great for learning purpose - since this has many non-casual techniques in it.

The T.P. Upstrokes are thumb

The T.P. Upstrokes are thumb pick upstrokes. Here is a post I made a while ago about thumb slaps. The second half concerns thumb picks and thumb pick upstrokes. If you don't have a thumb pick, you don't need to worry about it and can play it like normal. You can also omit the first 16th note after each thumb slap.

The other thing you were talking about is not necessary, but can be useful for keeping the bass notes ringing. This is really hard to describe in text, but I'll try anyways. I use this fingering:

  ^    v               T        T  v                   
  E  S S E  E  Q    E  E     E  E  Q    E   E  E   E   
-----------------------8--|--L--8p-5------------------|
--1--L------0-------------|--------5------------------|
--2--L------0-------------|--------------------0h--2--|
--------------------------|-------------2h--4---------|
---------------2----2-----|---------------------------|
--5--x-5-5----------------|---------------------------|
               1    1              4                   
                                   4                   

Then I tap the 8s with the index finger of my picking hand, and on the second tap I do a sort of pull-off with the tapping finger while hitting the 2nd string in the same motion.

Again, it really isn't absolutely necessary, it's just the way I like to play it.

Holy Mother of 16-bit!

What a tab! I like it :)
