To Zanarkand

Here's a song composed by Nobuo Uematsu, and performed by The Black Mages from Final Fantasy 10. Really short clip, but was fun playing. A very easy song to learn for people who want to learn a cool and simple song.

The second video features a zoom in on the fretboard and plucking hand, done with Adobe Premiere Pro 2. Hope it's useful for people who are planning to learn the song.

Hey, you can actually find a few more anime OST tabs in the "Requested Tabs" section. Just click on the links to listen and see if you're interested in the song. Then you can make a request, and I can send you the tabs via e-mail.

They're usually the ones with the Japanese composer names :P
