Tabbed by: Does it matter?
Email: No.

Tuning: Standard

The chords posted elsewhere are correct (F, Dm, Gm, C through the whole song), but I've 
the violin theme stuck in my head all day. So here it is:

Intro:
e|--------------------------12--10----------|
B|-13-(let ring)--------------------10------|
G|------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

2x:
e|-------------------------12--10-----------|
B|-10-11-13-15-10-----------------10--------|
G|------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

Right before percussion enters:
e|-12---------15----------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

Main theme:
e|-13-(long)-13-12-10-------------------------------12-13-|
B|---------------------13-11-10---13-6---10-8-11-13-------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------|

Now go impress your friends.

Right notes, but your fingering choices could use some work. You can play this all at the top of the neck if you don't try to do it all on two strings. For instance, in the main theme, instead of 6th fret on the 5th string try it as 10th fret on the third string so you don't have to move so far and adjust the rest of the notes from there.

@Johnny Devil

uhh, do you mean the 6th fret on the 2nd string?

and so it would be this? :

Main theme:
e|-13-(long)-13-12-10-------------------------------12-13-|
B|---------------------13-11-10---13-----10-8-11-13------|
G|------------------------------------10------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------|
