Closed Minded Girl
Xenosaga ep. 1

Composed by Yasunori Mitsuda
Arranged by Nate Brooks - thedstring

May 17, 2012

Standard Tuning

I arranged this to be played easiest on the guitar, if you want it
to sound just like the original use a capo fret 8, but I arranged this to sound
pretty good without a capo.  Some of the fingerings are pretty tough
but they are doable with some practice.  I also took a few liberties 
in making certain parts sound awesome for the guitar.  Play it a little
slower than the original if you want.

4/4

Sounds like nobody has even given this song a try =(

It's quite difficult even though it's slow, and its such a great song on the OST

Given it a few tries now, hadn't spotted this being uploaded earlier this year, and the only thing I dislike (due to not having PG length-ed pinky) would be the
e 3
B 2
G 1
D
A
E 4 chord, but at least I can reach it and have it down now. Doesn't mean I like it more now though.
The rest sounds great on guitar and is well arranged, particularly starting the 9th measure 'till the end (the A2 e6 stretch isn't awkwardly placed, and going to bar the 8th (or 9th) fret chord afterwards flows nicely, + nice outro).
GJ, and I don't remember the original at all so I don't know how much you've re-arranged it, but either way I believe it's good.

Sorry for the late

Sorry for the late reply...

If you're interested in hearing the original version of this it's for piano. Here's the ost version, maybe let me know if you think it was accurate!

Thanks for the comment!

Here's a link to the original song:

And here's me playing it:

(I just watched that video, maybe I should remake it with my better mic, it sounds terrible)

Also, if you wanted to play that chord a different way you could do
