The Decisive Battle

Hi again. Just learned this song recently, and I must say that it was quite a challenge. It's an OST taken from the game Final Fantasy VI, composed by Nobuo Uematsu, performed by The Black Mages, and it's hard to learn because it's just so... fast. Almost like shredding... heh.

What I did was play the midi file in the background at 90% of the original speed, but even so, it was still quite hard to synchronise. Few mistakes here and there, but I hope you like it. Tabs can below.
