This belongs in the tablature hall of fame.


@Vic9mm (September 17, 2009 at 1:47 PM)

wow...im speechless this arrangement is EPIC. I know we talked about it a little last night bro but I had no idea it was of this caliber you sir are a great arranger. Keep it up bro your doing an awsome job :)


@Ticonderoga (September 17, 2009 at 7:15 PM)

I remember hearing you talking about this in the shoutbox one day and as soon as i heard you were arranging it i couldnt wait. Well.. it was worth the wait! THIS SONG IS SO EPIC! GREAT JOB


@yoshistrings (September 17, 2009 at 8:05 PM)

Whoa I'm not used to this kinda tuning O_o


@ChelseaRare (September 17, 2009 at 9:42 PM)

Dang this is crazy. Excellent job, Nate


@Clifurd (September 27, 2009 at 2:27 AM)

This is pretty crazy man. Are there any videos of anyone playing from these tabs? If so please let me know.


@yomanation (December 01, 2010 at 5:02 AM)

The second part of the song with the melody being played on higher notes was great, I did not like the first part with the low notes. Also you went a little overboard with the tuning, I'd rather see you try fit it in a normal tuning. But clearly a lot of effort has been put into this.


@natenmn (December 01, 2010 at 9:07 PM)

Thank you for the nice comments, yomanation.

I know the tuning is a bit wacky, but I explain my decisions in detail about it a few comments above. I just felt this tuning made the most sense and gave the easiest results for playability.

I know that weird tunings can be a big turn-off for some, but they can really offer a much better variety of sound, playability of certain key signatures, and other things that standard tuning cannot provide. Although there are a few tips that are important in maintaining your guitar when using alternate tunings. One would be to not get carried away in tuning too many strings up or tuning a singular string up too high, as it can potentially warp a neck (especially one without a truss rod)... Placing a capo on a higher fret and tuning the other strings down is much safer. Tuning down in general is a lot less strenuous on the neck, yet if left for extended periods of time can warp it in the opposite direction. Good practice would be to always tune the guitar back to standard (or whatever tuning the guitar was built for) when done playing in a whack ass tuning.

Despite those tedious things and my laziness, I am a complete lover of alternate tunings. I used to hate them due to said laziness, but once I figured out the glory they offered, I became a die-hard convert. And don't get me started on capos, partial capos, or multiple capos. They can lend so much to a guitar player if taken the time to screw around with different variations... especially in combination with alternate tunings lol.


@Ennea (June 09, 2013 at 8:40 AM)

It has been a while a tab made me feel like a beginner. It's incredible how much you can with a guitar if you're creative.


@WhyCan'tILogIn (April 10, 2021 at 11:59 PM)

I agree with Archard. I have not seen any better Stickerbrush symphony tab than this.
