Song: May Your Wonders Never Cease
Artist: Third Day
Album: OFFERINGS II: ALL I HAVE TO GIVE
Copyright 2003 Consuming Fire Music/ASCAP


Tabbed by scheller   sonnyschell@hotmail.com
I tabbed this out with Powertab and it is pretty extensive.  In order to
make this simple and shorter, I'll leave out the minor things and just
give the main riffs and solo.  The two guitars (Gtr I, II) used in the
verses, chorus, and part of the solo are capo 5.  I recommend you getting
the Powertab file for this song that I did either here:
http://www.christianguitar.org/forums/showthread.php?t=50979 or try
powertabs.net (at this point I have not submitted it there).

CHORDS:
No Capo       Capo 5 (chords in parentheses represent shape relative to capo)
A5 57xxxx
G5 35xxxx
C5 x35xxx
Am x02210.....(Em) 022000
G  320033.....(D)  xx0232

J Walker - 2004-05-21

The "E" in the verse is supposed to be an "E7."


rockstarwannabe - 2005-04-09

I don't think that's the way the ending goes. (I have the Offerings II book). I'm not positive but i think it's wrong


sixstringes777 - 2005-04-16

awsome!!! awsome!!! awsome!!!
this tab is the best there is.
No tab even comes close for this song.


fallout - 2005-05-07

I think guitar1 in verse2 is playing EM7,D2,G,EM,D,G with a capo at 5th fret


Third_Day_Rocks - 2006-02-25

Thanks for tabbing this. It will save a lot of time trying to figure it out.
