I just started learning this song yesterday.
I love playing it but it's giving me a bloody headache learning the correct tabs.
I have the official songbook and it has tabluture without using capo.
Which suits me fine b/c I'd rather not use a capo if I don't need to.
The problem is the fretting for Dadd9 they suggest:
x57755 sounds nothing like the actual song.
x57755 is Dadd9.
I looked it up using a reverse chord find tool:http://chordfind.com/
But a more common variation is x,5,4,2,5,2.http://jguitar.com/chordsearch/Dadd9
What's driving me nuts is the two variations don't sound alike AT ALL!!
The latter sounds exactly like the chord in the actual song.
The one the offical songbook suggests.... doesn't.
I just restarted learning the song with a capo and it looks soooo much easier.
First of all Dadd9 is just x32033.
And having the capo on 2nd frret eally simplifies things by making 3rd string open A.
I've also been watching youngelectricpop's cover on youtube. He sort of follows Turtle's tabs but not quite. His alterations were giving me a headache too. But for the most part they make sense. This song makes use of vibrato for a lot of effects and you can't perform vibrato on an open string.
Why couldn't this song be more straightforward like Demo Koi??!!
Turtlewalk still has a few mistakes but overall he did a great job of tabbing.
When I figure it all out I'll try posting correct versions for tabs with and without capo.
edit: this song is insanely easier with capo. I am kicking myself for struggling to play the song wiithout one. I'm not even going to bother posting tabs w/o capo. Did Ecchan ever proofread the freaking songbook? :blink:
Found this tool that quickly transposes tabs from one scale to another.
For example, my songbook has Oyashirazu tabs in standard tuning. With the capo on 2nd fret I need to transpose all these chords/notes down by 2 halftones (ie -2 halftones).http://tabtransposer.com
