by the way i just found out that this instrumental is played on a 24
frets guitar, SHIT i got only 22.
here comes a small arpegio, repeat it 4 times, i wrote the fingering
and the strikes:

|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|

repeat the next arpegio 4 times: use roll technique when using finger 1.

//TIP: roll technique is used when using the same finger 2 play the
//same note on different sequential strings, it is done by moving the
//pressure of the finger when moving from string 2 string, 4 example:
//play this with the point finger by laying it on the fret board like
//a bar then start the pressure from the tip of the finger with the down
//stroke and move the pressure along with the single stroke that plays these
//notes in a sweep or arpegio.If u're playing up stroke move the pressure
//towards up.The reason for moving the pressure is 2 mute the string after
//moving 2 the next one (the golden rule 4 playing sweeps and arpegios).

i'm very sorry guys but it seems that timo tuned his guitar a whole
step down not a half,so to play the three final chords u should do
the same or play your own chords.

Amazing tab!

I think he actually tuned his guitar to drop D half a step down for this song, because according to your masterful tab, he doesn't touch the E string at all during the bulk of the song.
