I think it’s pretty crazy that someone else left a comment on this song today since I finally decided to learn it. The B/F# has an incorrect note on the 5th string (a natural D), but this sounds right to me: 46456x. Thanks for the great tabs, this is one of my favorites.
I’ve got this song down except for the B/F#, which still doesn’t sound right.
and is B/F# 45456x really correct? I can’t seem to hear the right notes..thank you in advance!
hello, first thank you for the tabs for this song, I love this song it’s so haunting. However I’m having a hard time finding out the correct patterns. Could anybody give me a hand with this please? :p
@fg400a I realized there was a typo in B/F# and it’s been fixed.
@allaf It’s really not too bad once you get it down. There’s a flow to it once you figure out the most efficient fingerings. It’s just a matter of finding it. I’ll leave that as an exercise to the reader. haha.
This is very hard to play.
this tab has a reputation, and it lived up to it.
I’m not sure if that B/F# sounds right. Everything else seems perfect though.
wow thats great
