Tsuneo Imahori - Rakuen tab

Artist: Tsuneo Imahori
Song: Rakuen (Paradise)
from the anime series Trigun
Tuning: DADGAD

I originally learned this song using the tab by R.J. Kaufman here:
http://www.azchords.com/t/trigun-tabs-4464/rakuen-tabs-45638.html

Eventually I discovered that the song is much easier to play and sounds
more accurate if you tuned DADGAD rather than drop D tuning.  So I went
ahead and re-tabbed the song in DADGAD tuning and fixed up a few parts
that didn't sound like the original - I believe this version sounds much
closer to the original because I think it was played with this tuning.

With this version, it's also easier/more possible to play the entire song
with a pick if you want to have a clearer sound.

As you can tell, I copied the structure of the original tab and simply
modified the contents. :-)


  / - slide up
  \ - slide down
