Nightwish - Last Of The Wilds tab

Song: Last of the Wilds
Artist: Nightwish
Album: Dark Passion Play

Thankx to the unregistered person who gave me the basic pattern to this song.

Any comment are welcome.

And yes, I know they usually play in C standard, but for this song, Drop D is acceptable.

Final Chorus

At this Point, Emppu just decides to go nuts and break into a pretty much inaudible solo.
Ok, instead of the solo, one can play the Guitar Solo or the Chorusís again, or brake 
their own improv shredding, it doesnít really matter. It anyone does tab the Final Chorus, 
hats off to you! I would love to see it.


Outro
From here the Chorus A melody is played one octave higher than the Violin Part, which 
higher than most guitars can go, including mine.
