PDF File Download: FFVIII – Fragments of Memories NAF Tab
Original Composer: Nobuo Uematsu
Technical notes: Requires use of cross-fingering, half-holing on the bottom note and one upper register note. Play on an NAF in the key of G if you wish to accompany the original track.
About: Another pretty song from the FFVIII soundtrack, played during the flashback scenes of Laguna’s stay in Winhill. It has a very nostalgic, sweet ‘music box’ feel to it.
On Playing: The half hole mostly occurs in sequence with the bottom hole note, so it’s easy to roll a finger up to it – other instances have a little more of a jump. You’ll notice when playing the tab that some sections have been transposed down an octave to fit within the scale of the NAF. Feel free to omit printing the second page of the PDF if you wish – the first page contains the main melody. The little piece on the second page is the sort of ‘bridge’ section starting at approx 1m into the track before it loops back to the beginning.
