Title: The Answer
Artist: Shane Barnard
copyright 2002 True Bliss Music/Waiting Room Music/River Oaks Music company
(BMI) All rights administered by EMI Christian Music Publishing

This version of "The Answer" is from the Shane Barnard and Shane Everett cd
"Upstairs." This tab is going to be difficult for beginning guitar players as
it has advanced use of barre chords. Make sure to read where strings should be
muted because it's in the key of Eb. 

I've created an elaboration of the sheet music viewable on the cd rom of "Upstairs"
so that you won't have to apply theory yourself.

Try using a regular F chord instead of the F7/A to reduce the tension placed in the verse and prechorus.

I love this song and was wondering if you could send me a copy of the song with the cords in the key of G, so that the Junior High Praise Band can play it at church on Sunday mornings. I have seen it in two different keys already, but they are way to difficult for the guitars to play. If you could do that I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,
Ashley McCarley
