Megaman X - Storm Eagle.- Guitar tab

X fighting Storm Eagle
X fighting Storm Eagle

A user of Youtube called GodlyJester posted a video of himself playing the theme from Eagle Storm's stage, from the original Megaman X for the SNES. It sounds awesome! People in the comments beg for the tab, so I decided to answer their prayers to the best of my abilities.

GodlyJester is using what I believe to be a 7-string Ibanez guitar, which has 24 frets. A lot of guitars only go up to the 22nd fret, so you may have to improvise when you reach that part, or play it in a lower key.

For those who are new to tablature, here's a few key points to know:

  • Each line represents the string, starting from highest to lowest.
  • Each number represents the fret.
  • The tilde ~ represent a vibrato.
  • The letter 'h' means 'hammer on' and 'p' means 'pull off'. If you don't know what that means, then you might be over your head with this song.
  • I represent bending up and bending down as '^' and 'v', as in 24^26v24, which means play the note on 24, bend up to 26 then bend back down to 24. I know this isn't standard, but I like it.

Here's the tab:

In the video, he plays this three times.

Well, that's it! I hope you find this useful. You can leave any suggestions or corrections here in the comments section.

Here's the video directly from Youtube, so you can hear the song and follow the tab:
