The Nightmare Begins - By Nobuo Uematsu - Guitar Tab
Tabbed by Jeremy Burr A.K.A Blockinlick

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

I'm going to first give credit to those who helped me tab this and ofc Nobuo Eumatsu for
it.

#1: SilvaGunner on Youtube for posting this "video"
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cW3jE_Q49Mc
This helped me play it by ear accurately the way it is played in-game.

#2: SouthSaturn on Youtube for posting this Video 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEJkTpSk08k&feature=response_watch
This helped me play it not only visually but also opened up more complex variations and
alternatives to the riffs.


Since this entire song is played via chord progressions I will also post a chord graph
each part.

NOTE: An x on the fretboard of chord graphs = a note change. In this song, for instance,
indicates the pinkey fingers change to the third fret(on the e-string) in the main riff.

Main Riff

     E_a_d_g_b_e
     _ _ O _ _ _
     | | | | | O
     | | | O O |
     | | | | | x
     | | | | | |

e---------1-----1-----3-----1-----1-------|
b-----2-------2-----2-----2-----2-----2---|
g-------2---2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----|
D---0-------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------|

     E_a_d_g_b_e
     _ _ O _ _ _
     | | | | O O
     | | | O | |
     | | | | | x
     | | | | | |

e---------1-----0-----3-----0-----0-------|
b-----1-------1-----1-----1-----1-----2---|
g-------2---2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----|
D---0-------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------|

     E_a_d_g_b_e
     _ _ O _ O _
     | | | | | O
     | | | O | |
     | | | | | x

b-----0-------0-----0-----0-----0-----0---|
g-------2---2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----|
D---0-------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------|

This next part is difficult to coordinate. There is an easier alternative to this part,
I don't think it sounds as good. This alternative is second.

e----------3------1------0------1------3-------|
b----------------------------------------------|
g-----2-3----3-2----3-2----3-2----3-2----3-2---|
D---0------------------------------------------|
A----------------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------|

Alternative

e---------3-----1-----0-----1-----3-------|
b-----3-----3-----3-----3-----3-----3-----|
g-------3-----3-----3-----3-----3-----3---|
D---0-------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------|

The main riff repeats again but instead of using the last riff you play this chord.

     E_a_d_g_b_e
     _ _ _ _ O O
     O | | | | |
     | | | O | |
     | O O | | |
     | | | | | |

Riff 2

      E_a_d_g_b_e
      _ _ _ _ _ _
 3rd  | | | | O |
      | | O | | |
      | | | | | |
      | | | O | |

This first chord is really a ***** to get used to at first.

e-----------------------|
b---------3-----3-------|
g-------6---6-----6-----|
D---0-4-------4-----4---|
A-----------------------|
E-----------------------|

     E_a_d_g_b_e
     _ _ _ _ _ _
     | | | | | |
     | | | | O |
     | | | | | |
     | | O O | |

e-----------------------|
b---------2-----2-------|
g-------4---4-----4-----|
D---0-4-------4-----4---|
A-----------------------|
E-----------------------|

     E_a_d_g_b_e
     _ _ _ _ _ _
     | | | | | |
     | | | | O |
     | | | O | |
     | | O | | |

e-----------------------|
b---------2-----2-------|
g-------3---3-----3-----|
D---0-4-------4-----4---|
A-----------------------|
E-----------------------|

Then it goes back to...

e-----------------------|
b---------2-----2-------|
g-------4---4-----4-----|
D---0-4-------4-----4---|
A-----------------------|
E-----------------------|

Riff 3

Here is where I get an ere****n lmao jk
I would suggest playing the following chord with your index ring and middle because
need your pinkey to do changes on the e-String. (Although make the second note change with
index).

         E_a_d_g_b_e
         _ _ _ _ _ _
   5th   | | | | | O
         | | | | | x
         | | O O | |
         | | | | | x

e---5-----5-----5-----8-----6-----5-------|
b-----------------------------------------|
g-----7-----7-----7-----7-----7-----7-----|
D-------7-----7-----7-----7-----7-----7---|
A-----------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------|

      E_a_d_g_b_e
      _ _ _ _ _ _
      | | | | | |
      | | | | | |
      | | | O O O
      | | | | | |

(I suggest barring this chord)

e---3-----3-----3-----3-----3-------|
b-----3-----3-----3-----3-----3-----|
g-------3-----3-----3-----3-----3---|
D-----------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------|

This next one is a bit of a stretch for your pinkey but whew does it sound beautiful.

      E_a_d_g_b_e
      _ _ _ _ _ _
      | | | | | |
      | | | | O |
      | | | O | O
      | | | | | |
      | | | | | x
      | | | | | x

e---3-----3-----3-----6-----5-----3-------|
b-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----|
g-------3-----3-----3-----2-----2-----3---|
D-----------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------|

      E_a_d_g_b_e
      _ _ _ _ _ _
      | | | | | O
      | | | O | |
      | | | | O |
      | | | | | |

e---1-----1-----1-----1-----1-------|
b-----3-----3-----3-----3-----3-----|
g-------2-----2-----2-----2-----2---|
D-----------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------|

This next part is definitely the hardest. Not only is this chord a ***** to place, but
also requires a good pinkey stretch at the same time.

      E_a_d_g_b_e
      _ _ _ _ _ _
 7th  | | O | | |
      | | | | | |
      | O | | | |
      | | | | O |
      | | | | | x

      | | | | | x

 5th  | | | | | O
      | | | O | |
      | | | x | |

Well there it is... The FULL and COMPLETE tab of The Nightmare Begins that everyone has
waiting for.
Let me now state that this was by no means a direct sheet music translation no matter
accurate it is. This was done entirely by ear and also visually. I simply watched and
to the videos named above and put together my best representation of the them.

(I don't even know how to read sheet music hahaha...)
