E|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0----------------0--

then it goes into intro part 2 as soon as gtr1 hits the E5
(play just once)

chorus3:
same as all the other choruses.

outro:
just play intro part one.

after that, its just a bunch of non-repeating lead that I
can't hear. well, thatís it, though it may be a little 
schetchy in some parts. 
I hope you enjoy!
   
In Christ,
Your fellow rocker

sanctusfan14 - 2004-06-28

great job, im workin on closer, cuz its sweet, but im gettin a bit confused in the solo, ne way, i give urs a 5


jesuslova - 2004-08-11

beautiful job, thank you very much


jayhoo62 - 2004-08-31

Excellent job on the tab. The only thing wrong that I noticed was:
g|----------44444444------------------
d|222222222-44444444-444444444*-------
a|222222222-22222222-444444444*-2*2p1-
E|000000000----------222222222*------4 <- that 4 should be a 2.
Xxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxx xxxxxxxx

Other then that though, I can't really find anything else wrong.


guitarbmee - 2004-09-19

thanx for the correction. I'm not suprised that I made a mistake. I never thought that my part sounded just right, but I just didn't take the time I guess. thanx again!!
In His grip,
Ben


JohnM - 2004-12-15

It's right, but play it in flat tuning (Eb Gb Db Gb Bb Eb) and move the tab up a fret and it's a lot easier. (That's what a few other Sanctus songs are in too, i.e. Say it Loud). I.e. intro 2:

Eb |-------------------------|
Bb |-------------------------|
Gb |-------------------------|
Db |------------5v-----------|
Ab |-----0h3p0-----3-3h5p3---|
Eb |-1-1-------------------3-|


SRguitarfrk444 - 2005-02-12

johnM was almost right...its a half step down drop D...all sanctus song except for "i love you" are either a half step down or some other weird tuning...so the little fun riff goes like so...

e
B
G
D-3-3-------5~-------5-5-5-5-5-5-5xxxxx
A-3-3-2h3p2--3-3h5p3-5-5-5-5-5-5-5xxxxx
E-3-3----------------5-5-5-5-5-5-5xxxxx


JohnM - 2005-04-24

Having just seen them 2 days ago.. he started playing this on the first fret, meaning it's in standard Eb. I guess he re-tunes between Eb and Drop-Db for the different songs (e.g. Say It Loud is definately in standard Eb).


Luca - 2005-11-10

Woah no the original is right... it's supposed to be in standard tuning


Luca - 2005-11-10

Sorry for double posting

g|----------44444444------------------

E|000000000----------222222222*------4 <- that 4 should be a 2.

Not quite it should be *-2*2p1----
*-------4-2


jsoccer - 2005-11-23

nice


gnarlynarwhal1 - 2005-12-08

no... this is super nice!!!


undertone - 2005-12-27

I saw them on 10/8 (on my birthday) in Atlanta (actually Peachtree City) and talked to them about this song. They said that they play it in dropped D tuned half step down (C#-Ab-C#-F#-Bb-Eb). No sweat though this tab is great. I play it this way in standard tuning with some minor changes. Basically because who cares as long as it sounds good and you like it. Rock on under God.


gnarlynarwhal1 - 2005-12-29

I was wonderin. why dont they have any walpaper to download on there website??? i think there the best band ever, but i cant have a picture of them on my computer!!! oh yeah, theyre comin out with an album around April fourth '06 SO GET READY!!!


jsoccer - 2006-02-01

so i went to one of thier concerts and they played 5 of thier songs off their new album, (awsome songs, very awsome)


Hauck - 2006-02-18

Yeah, they played this song at their concert and they totally rocked. I've heard them play it on CD, LIVE, and I've played it on my guitar, sounds very accurate. Great job, 5/5.


rockNforchrist - 2006-05-08

If you play this in standard tuning I think that part in the intro goes like this:

E-----------------------------------xxxxx--
B-----------------------------------xxxxx--
G-----------------------------------xxxxx--
D-------------4-------------4-------xxxxx--
A-----------2------2--2-4-2-4-------xxxxx--
E-0--0--2-4-----------------2-------xxxxx--
/ \
hold this


rockNforchrist - 2006-05-08

Woops, the hold should be under the

-4-
-4-
-2-


rockNforchrist - 2006-05-08

Also I think the second line in the verse should go

g|---------44444444----------------------
d|22222222-44444444-4444-666-444-666-6*6*
a|22222222-22222222-4444-666-444-666-6*6*
E|00000000----------2222-444-222-444-4*4*
Xxxxxxxx xxxxxxxx Xxxx xxx xxx xxx

instead of

g|---------44444444----------------------
d|22222222-44444444-4444-666-444-666-4*4*
a|22222222-22222222-4444-666-444-666-4*4*
E|00000000----------2222-444-222-444-2*2*
Xxxxxxxx xxxxxxxx Xxxx xxx xxx xxx

but Im not sure.


rockNforchrist - 2006-05-08

Ahhhhhh! It was off again! The palm mutes should line up with the notes.
