Chrono Trigger (Super NES)

Here's my version of "Magus' theme," using all of four guitars. If you want to
play the lead stuff, you'll need a 24-fret guitar.
(Note: the MIDI file is a bit off in the part where the three guitars are
going at once. Grab your CD soundtrack. :)

Symbols used:
 ~  = let ring / slight vibrato
 ** = repeat the section

Standard Tuning - (low to high) EADGBe
