AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER

Book 2      -  Earth
Chapter 15  -  The Tales of Ba Sing Se [The Tale of Iroh]


Little Soldier Boy
- It is played on-screen by Iroh using a liuqin, which is a type of lute
- It's quite loosely played, so don't worry about following the tab note for note
- During 5-/-2, you can pause briefly on the 3, to match how it's sung

Little Soldier Boy (Reprise)
- The second time it plays in the background as Iroh mourns his deceased son Lu Ten
- Unlike the 1st version, this just has one run that is played the same every time
- This scene is easily the most emotional moment in the entire show

Backing
- If you have a second guitar, this can accompany the main tune (both versions)
- The second version however doesn't have the first and last chords
- It doesn't in the song, but you can end with the chord xx7x10x

thank you so much for posting this. i love the show and this song especially. it's the only song that makes me cry. Iroh is one of my favorite characters. i applaud the voice actor for his emotion, and the musician who wrote the song. so sad

Nice tab. This part of the episode makes me cry every time. x.x The other funny moments afterward makes up for it though. :D Is this how the song is played or did you just add some extra parts? I think there is only like 4 guitar lines in the whole song like if you just play the main parts. Could be wrong though. I have all 3 seasons on dvd but I didn't bother getting the live action movie because it failed. .-. I thought so anyway.

I want to post or [tab]
