i think your chords sound great... it took me a while to figure what you are trying to tab at first... first of all the order of your strings are upside down
example...
E--------------
A-------------- <---Your strings are in this order
D-------------- and that is the wrong way of tabing
G-------------- and it could throw people off... do
B-------------- worry about it I use to read tabs this way.
e--------------

This is how it is suppose to be written as

e-------
B-------
G-------
D-------
A-------
E------- (am I confusing???)

and the second minor thing is that, the chords are not related to capo
and that threw me off at first, but then i figured it out... well if im confusing submit another comment... and i will re-post your tab... i give it
a 4 because the chords are really good but just very confusing at first...
GOD BLESS!!!

good tab, aside from it being a little confusing haha ... gets a 5 in my books


cjo406 - 2005-09-29

Sorry, but I am quite confused. Great song though.

Yeh I found it quite confusing at first but after reading the first comment it makes perfect sense. Good job on this tab... just give it a correction and its a 5!


YESILOVEMYJESUS - 2006-01-12

if you STILL don't understand.. the correct, or NORMAL way to tab, you put the guitar string order as if you were looking at your guitar as it's in your lap. So the guitar strings are upside down.

You don't need to use a capo on this song. because all the chords are closed lol.


JasonD - 2006-05-30

you dont need a capo if your just plucking the strings all at once like shawn and then slapping down in them ...... but when he starts to strum the chords in the song - a capo can be quite nice since you can strum all the cords and it will still sound nice

I am dearly confused please help, cjval09@snet.net, thanx guys!
