                The islander
Nightwish
Music & Lyrics: Marco Hietala
Tunning: 1 & 1/2 Step down
On acoustic guitar with metal strings, Use a pick (folk guitar)

So. This song has been in my mind for a while and i learned it like all of us from the 
tabs.
But the licks and chords they didn’t feel right. There was some mandolin kind of thin on 
guitar
But i just guess it was the 2 guitars and the piano and all that sh*t. I saw a video in 
internet
i figure out
high strings.


It aint that hard but it takes time. I hope you like it

An old man by a seashore at the end of days

Anchorage unpainted and a ship without a name
