SPEAKING IN TONGUES
As recorded by The Elms
Album TRUTH, SOUL, ROCK AND ROLL, copyright 2002

Transcribed by scheller: sonnyschell@hotmail.com

I've corrected the intro and added all the other parts of the song, 
including the solo.  The intro is played with two guitars but can be
done with one.  Its a long tab, but I wanted to be thorough.

Skeeter - 2004-02-25

Nicely done. I think you missed something in the intro though. I think instead of the pull-off to the 0 on the G string it's actually a 4b5r4 on the D string. Sounds closer to the CD at least.


Timberwolf - 2004-07-26

U did a good job its almost exactly right cause i just got x2003 songbook and ur tab is very close excellent job!


acethrowbot - 2005-03-05

scheller, could you please post a link to the powertab file for this song? i want to learn it, but i don't have the cd. one of my friends played a little bit of it for me, and it sounded really cool.


RelientKFan7 - 2006-05-01

Its actually not played like this... they use an alternate tuning, i know because I ordered the DVD Burn the Fields... anyways i cant really tell what thur using... but i know that he isnt playing the intro on the 3rd fret...
