RADICAL DREAMERS - NUSUMENAI HOUSEKI (Japanese Title)

Composed & Arranged by: Yasunori Mitsuda
Lyrics by: Noriko Mitose

Acoustic Guitar: Tomohiko Kira
Vocal: Noriko Mitose

Recorded & Mixed by: Kenzi Nagashima
Assistant Engineer: Ken Hiranai
Recording Coordinator: Kenichi Funayama

Tabbed by Daniel Hughes, inspired by the tab that Stefan Uddenberg wrote. Without his
I would probably never gotten started with this tab. Give some credit to him as well. I’ve
some mistakes, made it more detailed, rhythmically correct and better structured, 
I found his tab a little bit hard to read. I've made brackets around most chords and
written out the chord names above to make it as easy to read as possible. I've also put 
list of the chords at the bottom of the tab. I found many of the chord names at 
using their Chord Name Finder.

I strongly suggest you play this song with FINGER PICKING, NOT A PICK. When I started
learning this song I could hardly do finger picking at all, now I love it and often prefer
to using a pick.


MAIN RIFF (played through most of the song with different endings)

The tab is a timeline, but the vertical brackets do not count. There are eight dashes
each chord. (B9 and F#m are the same except you remove one finger) That is because the
is played with the speed of a 1/8 beat between nearly all the notes. If there is a 
row of dashes (-) without any notes on either string, then it is a pause of a 1/8 beat.
most notes come in rapid and fluent series, but there are a few short pauses between 
notes. The last part of the main riff ends differently nearly each time. I will show the 
in order throughout the tab.

The second time you add an F# note (2nd fret, e-string) at the Bm chord. This variation
the main riff is only played here, NOT in any other time the main riff is played.

CHORD LIST

I will list the chords in order of appearance with notes for each string from low E to
e. x means that the string isn't played. As an example, an A minor chord (Am) would be:
|x02210|
I will list the chords with the notes played in the song, as well as the full chord with
same chord name.

NOTATION EXPLANATIONS
/x = A slide up to the next chord, not producing any note, only the
     typical scratchy sliding sound. Used in first chorus only.
h  = Hammer on. You hammer on a finger to create the next note without
     actually picking it with your right hand. Used near the song's ending.
/  = Upward slide between two notes or into a note. Used in final chord.
\  = Downward slide between two notes or into a note. Used in final chord.

FINALLY! I've had this tab lying around for months, all because of a few details I
was hard to hear but wanted to get perfect, so I just kept on pushing it ahead of me. A
song requires a perfect tab, so I hope I got it all right. If you find the slightest 
please comment or send me an e-mail at daniel_san805@hotmail.com if you want to be sure
read it.
Anyway, tell me if you find any mistakes and please give me some feedback on this tab.
me if I explained something poorly or if you need help with anything like finger
finger picking and so on.

どうも りがとう。(Thank you in Japanese)
