Radical Dreamers

I'm back! It's been quite some time since I posted a video, so here it is! This one's called Radical Dreamers from the anime Chrono Cross. It's originally composed by Yasunori Mitsuda, and it's a really simple and nice tune.

Took me quite a while to get this video together because I wanted to try something different. In the video, I played a midi file in the background to complement the rhythm. Also, I made a close up video using Adobe Premiere Pro 2, with the help of RenHao. Technology rocks!

Hope you enjoy the videos! Tabs are below.

hey...
just thought i'll drop by to say, yep, you play really well (:
i picked up e guitar two days ago and yuck, i can't play as well as you do ):
are you daniel choo's brother? found his account in youtube when i was searching for smth for chapel...
yupyup, you guys continue to inspire me :D
God bless!

Graham Choo said...

Hey, yeps, I'm his twin brother. Just sharing his account since he already has one on YouTube. Gonna integrate his vids into my blog soon too, with tabs as well, so look out for that.

All the best in your quest to learn the guitar. Hope this site helps :P

It's a very beautiful song and you play very well!!

Hi i was wondering if you could do an instructional video on Radical Dreamers, Im having some trouble with it Thanks!

Graham Choo said...

Yeah I already had that in mind cause someone else asked it over YouTube. It's on my list of things to do, but it'll take a while since i'm doing other instructions too

k.natsu said...

Hi, Nice to meet you.
Thank you for the tab and chords.
I came from YouTube.
Your play is awesome.
Thanks again!

Anonymous said...

hey thanks for putting up the tab and video for this song it really helps. But do you have any advice on barring chords becuase im having a little truble barring that F#sus of the last line in the first verse the one that goes G,A,F#sus,F#

Graham Choo said...

Hey,

Here's some tips on how to play the barre chords better:

1. Apply more pressure. You might not be pressing down hard enough.
2. Arch your other fingers (not the index, which is barring the whole fret), so that they don't touch the other strings, and muffle them.
3. Try and play your notes nearer to the right side of the fret you're pressing on (ie. press nearer to the right side of the fret). It gives a clearer sound, without having to press so hard.
4. Keep practicing playing the barre chord. They shape is retained wherever you go on the fret, so it's actually quite easy to play songs with it after awhile. Only problem is that your hand might get tired eventually.

Hope that helps! :)

something wrong with tabs.its not sound right in some places .are you 100% sure that tabs are correct?anyway good site.but tabs are little bet messy:)

Graham Choo said...

Hi, no, I'm not 100% that the tabs are correct, because I tend to make some mistakes with the numbers sometimes. But if you could tell me which parts don't sound right, I can have a look at them, and rectify them if need be. Thanks! :)

David said...

do you pick with your pinky or do you do the travis style?

Graham Choo said...

Hi David, I'm not sure what the travis style is, but I usually use my last finger to pick if I'm playing a chord that requires 5 different strings on the guitar to be plucked.
So for thumb plucks either the E or A string, while the rest of the 4 fingers pluck the rest.

David said...

Thanks! i love these anime songs haha thanks for the tabs and videos, they help a lot

Anonymous said...

Hey Graham,

Thanks for the awesome video!
I have just minor differences from the original tabs. I downloaded scanned versions of the official guitar tabs.

I think it's suppose to be (starting out)
--------------
---------0----
-----2-------2
---0-------0--
--------------
-3-----3------

You seem to have reversed the last 2 and 0.

Graham Choo said...

Hey, you're right. I tabbed the intro a little differently from the song. I only realised that after posting up the video and tabs.
I think it's still alright anyway, but if you want to change it, please go ahead :)

Anonymous said...

someone said that the part: G,A,F#sus,F# is difficult for barring.
i do that part with my middle finger pressing the index while it's barring the F#, so that i can make more pressure on the chord, like a two finger barring. if you're having a hard time with this note, you could try this tip, as well if your guitar haves the chords to uplifted like mine do.
