Zelda Theme Tab

   
Zelda Theme as performed by Yngwie Malmsteen
   and transcribed by David Wooten

Standard EADGBe Tuning

h - hammer
p - pull
/ - slide up
s - slide
~ - vibrato

****--Notes--***************************************************************
-Guitar 1 is pretty easy to hear on Yngwie's version, but there's a spot
  where it was iffy, so you may want to improve there (I put a not by it)

-Guitar 2 is alot harder to hear, but most should be relatively accurate.

-When playing rhythm guitar remember to start out a little soft and slowly
  crescendo until you are playing pretty powerfully.

-Note that I made this for my own use so I wouldn't forget what little
  progress I had made while figuring it out, and it's my first tab to ever
  post online. If you have any problems with reading it (perhaps I left an
  entire part out), you can email me at solidus408@aol.com
