Passion for Exploring (Track 6 of 13) - by Magnus Pålsson
Arranged for Guitar by Michael Achilles (Tortoise)
6-17-13


Notes:
  -The rhythm I used for the majority of this piece is the one established in the opening measures.
   Every 2 measures, the rhythm is (E Q  E Q  E Q  E Q  Q  Q) 
   So you'll find that the first beat, of every other measure, is not always played.
   With the melody over this, it can make for some interesting patterns with your right hand.

  -In [Section C'] the bend on the 17th fret is difficult on a classical guitar, I play it as the 19th fret and slide down to the 17th.
  
  -There are many notes with an "a" over them. 
   If you aren't familiar with these, they are accent notes and played quickly, and are part of the beat ahead of them, in this case.



Standard Tuning (Capo on Fret 1)

Tempo, Q=210

help me play this part

5

this tab is sick, the rhythm was tricky at first but its really fun to play. i have trouble bending fret 17 to the correct note in section c'. i have a really cheap classical guitar which i know makes it harder but i wanted someone else's opinion on that specific part. if i could play that part smoothly i'd be down to make a recording for this tab.

just noticed this tab again

just noticed this tab again and lel same date as last year. in the year that has passed i have changed my mind, this song is very playable with some practice.
