Hi, I'm Magellan.



1) Firstly, some things you should or might want to know:

- I'm primarily a bass player, NOT a guitarist. I've been playing bass for over 9 years, 
but guitar for just over 1.

- I tabbed this song and I'm pretty happy with the result, but due to the above, I'm not 
skilled enough to play it myself yet. ^^ Awesome... >.<

- This is my first guitar tab, but NOT my first tab ever. I've made many bass tabs, and 
some are online. A few even date back to 2002 or 2003...



2) About this tab:

This tab is a GUITAR tab for the song mentioned at the top...
But it's *NOT* a tab of what is actually heard in the record. That has already been done 
(albeit not perfectly) on Guitar Pro format, and can be found online.

This tab is meant to be something you can play along to on your own, with only one 
instrument (the guitar), and make it sound rich and full. Maybe even sing along if you're 
feeling brave - I've left room for that.

Thus, it's not what the artist originally made. It's *MY OWN INTERPRETATION* based on 
the music. There can be many variations. If you know your music theory, feel free to play 
along with the arrangement, take stuff out, put stuff in, etc.

I made this tab because as far as my search has showed me, there's nothing like this 
online yet. I made it both for myself and, heck, to see if it helps you all - why not.



3) Inspirational videos & credit:

Gotta give credit where credit is due. My tab is based on two different arrangements for 
this song. It's kind of like a mixture of what I feel is the best of both, plus a 
little bit of my stuff added.

Here are the videos that helped me make this tab. They might help you learn the song.

-> (this guy attempts to play the voice melody in his arrangement - I didn't do that in 
this tab, I made it for singing)

-> (this guy tries to sing along, rather nicely, but the guitar arrangement is too 
simple at times)
