Hey everyone,
I have been looking for the tabs for the grand kai theme song from DBZ for a while now but I am unable to find them anywhere =c
I was wondering if anyone can work out the tabs for this theme song?

Even if you have not watch Dragonball Z the theme is very blues based and is totally awesome!!
Have a listen on this link:


Thanks in advance for anyone that does do the tabbing for this!
Peace,

Shadowcreeds.

I could tab it, but it would be awhile. I don't have a lot of time any more to tab and I have a couple of other things to work on ahead of this. Plus I'll be in Mississippi and New Orleans for about ten days over the Christmas and New Years holidays, so it would probably be the middle or end of January before I could get to it. Let me know.

Thanks sooooooooo much!!
Can't wait for your tabs!! =DD

Okay, no problem. Keep checking back here after the first week or two of January. (I hate to spend the time doing a tab and the person who asked for it never checks back.)

Later.

Okay, I see you're back. I'll start on it soon (within a few days or so).

I hope your holidays were great and the coming new year is a good one for you.

I'll be back!

I've started on it. I've done about 25% of it. I'm going to post what I've done so far below just so you can get an idea of how I'm tabbing it. I haven't checked it for typos or anything, and after I've done a tab I usually go over it to see if the particular note-sequences could be played easier in another location, etc. So this is just the first part of the "rough draft" so you can take a look at it.

Grand Kai Theme -From Dragonball Z
Lead Guitar -1:17
Tabbed by Dadfad (John M) 12/16/11
For re-copying: Originally tabbed in Microsoft Notepad using Courier New 10-Font.
#-----------------------------------PLEASE NOTE-------------------------------#
# This file is the author's own work and represents his interpretation of the #

#-----------------------------------------------------------------------------#
Key of G: Gm-Pentatonic (A#maj) Scale-based
.
A few things about my tabs:
I use an "h" to mean hammer-on (for example -3h5- means pick the 3-note and then
hammer onto the 5-note above it). I use "b" for bend, and if it's a whole note
or more up I'll usually put that note next to the "b" in parentheses
(for example -5b(6)- means pick the 5-note and bend it to approximately
the pitch of the 6-note). If the note is actually pre-bent to a higher fret
when played I'll put them together with no parentheses, like 6b8
(6-note bent to 8 when played). I'll use the symbol ~ for a slight bend
or also for a slight finger-vibrato and I'll use the letter "v" for a
stronger vibrato. A slide up the neck will have a / (for example 5/6,
the 5th-fret slid up to the 6th) and a slide down will have an \ (like 6\5,
sliding the 6th-fret note down to the fifth-fret).
.
Nothing that unusual and pretty much the same way lots of guys do tabs.
I'll sort of divide the lines up into short phrases which are easier to work
with individually, and then can be put together into the complete sequence.
I'll put the approximate timing locations on the recording in seconds for each
line. (Beneath the line I'll put the bass-guitar notes that sort of lead
into the phrases.)
.
Anyway...

Just played it and sounds good so far!!
Just a quick question you mean pull off @ 6po5, then what does the "p" on its own stand for ie: 5p3?

Yes. Sorry, I was waiting to hear back from you to make sure how I was doing it was working okay for you and I didn't see that you'd posted back later that same day, so all I did was another phrase. I'll get right back on it.

I think that p versus po is just a typo.

I have a couple more lines done. (Sorry this is taking so long. Like I said, I only have a very limited amount of time to do tabbing (my lunch-break at work) and we've been really busy here. Which means I'm often getting phone-calls all through my lunch. (I'm an engineer and I get calls from several time-zones.) Anyway, I have a little more. Hopefully that'll be enough for you.
