Departure

Here's the new song for the week! It's titled Departure, by Kotaro Oshio. Beautiful song with a happy tune! I left out some of the slap harmonics and there were a few mistakes here and there, but I had fun learning and performing it. 1 thing to note is that the song has an alternate tuning of C,G,D,G,B,d.

Tabs are below. Enjoy!

Hi there,

I just want to say thank you for the tabs for this song. I do have one question. How do you play the front part where there is a tapping sound? I just can't seem to get it right. :(

Graham Choo said...

It's played exactly the same way as the first four tapping sounds at the start of the video. Just hit your strumming hand against the 6 strings to get a muted percussion sound.

Renee Chung said...

Err... i don't mean to sound silly here *blush* but how do you hit your strumming hand against the 6 strings when you are suppose to play only certain strings? Sorry i'm not so good in my guitar skills. :(

Graham Choo said...

At those points when you mute all the strings, you're don't have to play certain strings. So it's strum, mute, mute... and so on.

renee chung said...

so means is strum, mute, mute, mute ... strum, mute, mute, mute (a different position) but then the mute mute suppose to play the G note on the 5th string right?

Graham Choo said...

It's strum(down), mute, mute, Strum (up), mute, strum (up),

then the pattern repeats with mute, mute, strum (up), mute, strum (up)

it's pretty hard to get, but i hope you'll be able to play it with much practice :P

Matt wilson said...

hi there, umm any way to get the tuning in this song?

Graham Choo said...

Hey Matt, the alternate tuning is written at the front of the tabs. If you're asking how to tune the guitar accordingly, I'll try my best to explain, starting from the 6th (Low E) string:
1. Tune down from E to C (Get the pitch by pressing 5th string at 3rd fret)
2. Tune down from A to G (Get the pitch by hitting the 3rd string)
3. Leave it as it is (D)
4. Leave it as it is (G)
5. Leave it as it is (B)
6. Tune down from E to D (Get the pitch by hitting the 4th string)

I hope you'll be able to understand the explanation. All the best learning the song :)

in the 4th set of lines, theres a 1p0 on the high d string. i think you meant to put it on the B string. it sounds funky otherwise

Graham Choo said...

Hey, you're right! I've changed it already. Thanks for telling me :) Am still quite amateurish at tabbing. Have fun learning the song!
