i think my guitar was in E when i figured it out, but if any of this is off its because it could have been a 1/2 step down.. cause i played all this with the CD and i got the EXACT notes....enough blab here's the tab :o)

D-5---5-5-5-5--5-5--7
A-3---3-3-3-3--3-3--5

B-16~-15-16-15-16-15-16-15-13--11-13--15-13--11-13--18-16~  2 times
switch to a nice clean tone with this and add some reverb, this is only the lead part......the second time you dont play the last note

(riff 6)
e----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B-13---13---13---14--13---13---13---11--12--13-16~~15-14~--11--13--16~~15-14~

e-11-11-11-11-----13-13-13-13 !
B------------------------------

(riff 8) vocal part
A-10---10-9~               the instrument that plays after riff 8   e-11---10--8
E----11------  2 times         each time goes like this....         B-----------

(riff 9) 
A-10--12-13------10--12-13~
E-----------11~-----------        aria di mezzo carattere mirrors this part

(riff 10) this really should be part of riff 9 but whatever
A-13-13--15--------10-8~
E-----------11~--11----

(riff 11) end vocal part
A-------------9~---12------
E-9--11-12-----------11--9~ 

and finally, here comes the coolest parts of the whole thing! 

(riff 12) the  rhythm for riff 13 and 14
A---9---9--
E-7---7---

(riff 13a) this plays over riff 12 and under riff 14
G------------------12-----------------------------------------
D----------12h14/15---14-12-14--12--12------------------------
A-12h14/15------------------------15---15p13-15----12h13p12---
E----------------------------------------------15----------15
(riff 13b)
G------------------12------------------------------------
D---------12h14/5---- 14-12-14--12--12-------------------
A-12h14/15------------------------15---15p13-15----12--15
E-----------------------------------------------15-------
  this is a little fast,make sure it stays smooth and fluid

(riff 14) 
G------------12~--12p10h12-13----12~---------------12~--------------------
D-10-10-10--------------------------10--10-10-10-------12p10h12h13-12--10~

(riff 15)
G-7--5-5-5--7---12--10--7-7-7-8---15--14--11h12h14-15--19---17~-16
D------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

now repeat riffs 13 and 14, but at the start of riff 14 replace the 10's on the D string with all 12's on the G string

repeat riff 13 twice(with slight variation) then end it like this...    G-12
15 on A 4 times with about 1 second inbetween each, then >              D-14
                                                                        A-15

(riff 16) end part- this is beautiful! 
e-------------------------------------------------------------------------
B-12-11-12---12-11-12---12-11-12-14-15-14-12--10-8-7--7-8----7--5-3--2-3--
G---------------------------------------------------------6~-------------4  2 times

(riff 17)
e-------------------------------------------------------------------
B----2-3---3-5-7---7-8-9--8-7-----7-8---8-10-12---12-14-15--14-12---
G-4--------------------------9--9--------------------------------11~
  i wish i could figure out the guitar part under this..but this lead will do

repeat riff 16 and 17 twice, then do 16 once more a little stylishly... THE END!

this took forever to get right, its truly a uematsu masterpiece, i hope you guys like it!
the song sounds good with either full on distortion, or my neck pickup/clean/reverb combo. Play everything all the way through, repeating where noted..phew!
