by the way i just found out that this instrumental is played on a 24 frets guitar, SHIT i got only 22. here comes a small arpegio, repeat it 4 times, i wrote the fingering and the strikes:

repeat the next arpegio 4 times: use roll technique when using finger 1. //TIP: roll technique is used when using the same finger 2 play the //same note on different sequential strings, it is done by moving the //pressure of the finger when moving from string 2 string, 4 example: //play this with the point finger by laying it on the fret board like //a bar then start the pressure from the tip of the finger with the down //stroke and move the pressure along with the single stroke that plays these //notes in a sweep or arpegio.If u're playing up stroke move the pressure //towards up.The reason for moving the pressure is 2 mute the string after //moving 2 the next one (the golden rule 4 playing sweeps and arpegios). //

i'm very sorry guys but it seems that timo tuned his guitar a whole step down not a half,so to play the three final chords u should do the same or play your own chords.
