This is the full tab of Relient K's "Pressing On" off their "The Anatomy
of Tongue In Cheek" CD put out by Goatee Records. This song is relatively
easy besides the fast intro and sometimes random chords thrown in.I think
i got most of it correct, except maybe the beginning of the prechoruse, so
email me at Dwilly677@aol.com to comment or complain.

i think the second time the guitarist hammers in the intro its different than the first one, but i cant figure out anything thats quite right, but im pretty sure that that isnt right. its no biggy, but still if anyone knows let me know.

Hey if any one could tab a few Poor Man's Riches songs on here or some Forever Changed songs, that would be great. They are great christian rock bands and i guess there new...... and so nobody has tabbed any....thnx!!
