Creed (Live) by Third Day
From Offerings II: All I Have To Give
Orginal version By Rich Mullins


Notes: This tab is divided into two sections, since I don't have the ability
to make it a complete professional transcription, with notation and two staffs,
just follow the section corresponding to the guitar part you wish to play.
Also, the wah solo was difficult to transcribe and I have not notated every
single note played, though it is extremely close and if you're good enough
to play it, you can fill in the blanks.
