Challenging, but very well

Challenging, but very well done. Great job on this arrangement.



I love this tune, U gave it a very nice tab. Playing it on my guitar, I feel a bad envy to play a old Mario game (:

Great fun


I've had great fun with this tab. Fingerstyle is something I've only really tried this year and it was a fun way of learning the skill.

Although, I'm stuck on one chord in this arrangement that I just can't get to flow.


(1 = Index, 2 = Mid, 3 = Ring, 4 = Pinky)

It might be that I've got the fingering wrong somehow, but lately I've been thinking about substituting it for.


Isn't too much of a stretch with the capo on the 5th fret anyway.

Any guidance on this is most welcome.

You got the fingerings right

You got the fingerings right or at least how I do them XD
Your substitution seems like a good way to do it,maybe it's even better that way.
I believe you should do the one that feels best for you :)
Anyway,follow your heart and forgive me for being of no help at all


Well it helped to know I was using the right fingering.

I played electric guitar for a long time, self-taught. Needless to say, I picked up a lot of bad habits. I've been trying to smooth them out, but of course, it takes a little time to re-write well established brain circuitry.

I noticed that when playing that particular chord as it was quite high up the neck with the capo on, my arm/body position would restrict the angle of my fingers on the strings. So while that chord I still find a little uncomfortable (I tend to visualise it as an A minor with a C bass note, but the delay on the little finger gets me in trouble since that note is plucked first), maybe there's still hope for it.

I've been trying to find a resource for a while on a theory behind finger choice depending on chord shape for classical guitar. There's the basic one finger per fret rule, and the occasional tab with it marked, but I get the distinct feeling this is one thing you have to figure out yourself sometimes.

Anyway, ramble over, once more, thanks for the tab!
