Nightwish
Track 10 From the Album: Dark Passion Play (2007)
Music & Lyrics: Marco Hietala
Tabbed by: Mariano Arnaiz
Anything to: marianoarnaiz@hotmail.com
Tunning: 1 & 1/2 Step down
On acoustic guitar with metal strings, Use a pick (folk guitar)

So. This song has been in my mind for a while and i learned it like all of us from the 
tabs.
But the licks and chords they didn’t feel right. There was some mandolin kind of thin on 
guitar
But i just guess it was the 2 guitars and the piano and all that sh*t. I saw a video in 
internet
From a dude that recorded Marco playing ut live, i had the chance to see a little bit 
i figure out
From there the tuning and fact that the guitar lick has a top line and a bottom line in 
high strings.


It aint that hard but it takes time. I hope you like it
