Comments about this tab

njsk8rboy - 2004-08-17

very good


Drew Peterson - 2004-08-18

Thank you!


njsk8rboy - 2004-08-19

i think it would be better 2 play it in drop d but u should try both


Drew Peterson - 2004-08-19

They play it in Drop C...just play along with the song...oh yeah...you can't, yet--legally. hehe.


Drew Peterson - 2004-08-19

I do like the drop-d sound, though.


pistolpete - 2004-08-20

Whats drop C


njsk8rboy - 2004-08-20

i just won the cd from tvu and drop c is a tuning thats alot lower than standard e and if u have a tuner the its 4 flats


Drew Peterson - 2004-08-20

*ahem* it is 2 flats below standard drop-d. That so rules that you won the CD from TVU. Did they e-mail you or call you? I have beenentering a million times.


njsk8rboy - 2004-08-22

an e-mail


Drew Peterson - 2004-08-23

Nice...I ordered it through BestBuy.com. It was only $7, though I paid another $6 for 2nd day air shipping.


njsk8rboy - 2004-08-23

awsome


njsk8rboy - 2004-08-23

u check out my far away tab i need 2 re-do it it's DEFANETLY in drop c


pistolpete - 2004-08-23

Thx,though I still don't get it.


njsk8rboy - 2004-08-24

u make your guitar sound lower by dropping the tuning youll get it someday just like me


njsk8rboy - 2004-08-29

ure right it is in drop c and bitter and lifeless and shadows and all the other
1s on potters field


GodrulesWill777 - 2004-09-02

Drop C is my favorite tuning. That's what my band plays in. It gives the sound a much harder sound. Good job on the tab also. This song rocks. GOD BLESS!!!


FerriuS - 2004-09-04

I agree with njsk8rboy - i think all songs on Potter's Field are in Drop C. And about this tab - there are no slides in intro, it's hammer-ons and pull-offs. And don't play lower C string in first part of intro.


rockerclb - 2004-09-04

stay form potters field is in standard tuning though


Drew Peterson - 2004-09-04

Why the heck did I say slide in the verses? That is impossible to do. Whoops. Thanks for pointing that out.
~Rockboy


njsk8rboy - 2004-09-05

ya i just sent my new far away tab wich is WAY better and in drop c


No Name Face - 2004-10-09

Here's the deal for who ever didn't understand drop C. It's the same idea as Drop D. The difference is, you tune all 6 strings down a whole step. then it's just like being in standard tuning only everything is a whole steplower. then you drop the sixth string (usually E but now D) another whole step down to C. Then play riffs and stuff just like you would in drop D. I hope that helps a little

Drop-C tuning: C G C F A D


UAgoldenbear21 - 2005-01-12

GREAT TAB....I WON THE CD OVER RADIO U AND I LOVE IT....GOOD SONG NICE WORK ON TAB


mondaymrningfan - 2005-01-25

To tune to drop C you first have to tune the 5th string down to the 3rd string. After that you tune the low E string by playing the seventh fret and tuning down to the 5th string you just tuned. After that you can easily finish off the tuning by tuning all the strings with the strings you already tuned. Hope that helped, it took me a while to figure out drop C tuning. I don't kow if this will make sense to any of you but this is how you tune it to drop C without a tuner.


Jetix - 2005-03-06

im not sure if the verse is entirely correct. somehow the 9-8 part doesnt sound right. otherwise its a great tab. keep it up. anyone know any other challenging drop c songs? i need to practice on it since i just started using the tuning.


again alone - 2005-03-07

The Way I Feel, by 12 Stones is a good challenging song.


Kondore - 2005-03-17

yeah...during the verse when ur playing high notes..it sounds like he goes like a fret lower near the end of the verse


Axeman_1 - 2005-04-04

i think in the verse instead of going from F-10 A-10 to F-9 A-8, it should be F-10 A-10 to F-12(hammer-on) A-10


Tobbbe - 2005-05-31

In the verse, instead of:
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------
F|----------------------------------------------------------------------
C|-8--8-8-8/10-10-10-10/8-8-8-8/10-10-10-10-----------------------------
G|-8--8-8-8----8--8--8----8-8-8----8--8--8------------------------------
C|-8--8-8-8----8--8--8----8-8-8----8--8--8------------------------------

I think it sound better with:
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------
F|----------------------------------------------------------------------
C|8--8-8-8-10-10-10
G|8--8-8-8-8--8--8
C|8--8-8-8-8--8--8


GUITARock12s - 2005-06-03
