This is an awesome song but I really like FORWARD MOTION the best.  I am 
tabbing that out next. I have noticed that the relient k guys sometimes 
drop the lowest string one to give it a sort of minor feel. 
Which is pretty cool you'll notice it thoughout the song and all of 
their songs one this record.  It's really hard to do the rhythm so
i put a basis for the song.  
Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions at all!

Word of advice. You are writing your tabs wrong. It makes it really hard to read like that. Bottom line for a tab is the low E not the high e.


greatwhitellama - 2004-03-14

I don't think the intro is a chord, it's an octive. Other than that it's good.


Timberwolf - 2004-06-19

The end solo is actually
1-0---0-----------0----------------------
----3---3-1---1-3---1--------------------
------------2----------------------------

sanctusfan14 - 2004-06-29

teenspirit89 - 2004-07-02

Twigguitar_1992 - 2006-06-02

i wuz in a Christian bookstore and i found a book with this song in it and it said the intro goes
e|-------
B|-------
G|-4-----
D|-X-ALOT
A|-2-----
E|-------


cakinman - 2006-12-28

ok, I have the book, and I know the song, this is a really close tab, except for the fact that it is upside down. The solo is played on the high e string
12-11-9-11-9-7-4-7-9-11-9-7.
the person right above me got the ending exactly right.
the intro is played
---4---
---X---
---2---
and the verse starts on
-9-9-6-
-9-9-6-
-7-6-4-
