Timing is as close as I can get it. I can't actually play 95% of this, so
I am assuming its right :-)

I have to agree. This piece of music sounds so amazingly beautiful played alone.

I hate tabs because I can read music. I have to write the notes out from the tab. So far, I am getting chord arpeggios. Some of the chords seem difficult to finger. I am looking for the melody tabs and I don't know what page they start on. I have recorded the sound track from the movie, at the begining of the movie and at the end.
If heywhynot41 and Muppet say this is the correct tab then I should not have any difficulty in playing.
