On Fire by Switchfoot,
tabbed by ChristianLife

Alright, follow this pattern exactly chord for chord and it's good. 
The Am is different,
E|-0- or you can play it as a regular Am and it sounds good too!
AND THE Cadd9 is like this:

Cadd9 G Am F(barre)
Cadd9 G Am F(barre)
Cadd9 G Am Cadd9
Cadd9 G Am F(barre)
Cadd9 G Am F(barre)
Cadd9 G Am F(barre)
Cadd9 G Am F(barre)
Cadd9 G Am F(barre)
Am F
Am F
Cadd9 G

Cadd9 G Am F(barre) until fade out

Alright, one more thing, the F HAS to be a barre chord. This is exactly the

Hey kid,
you know that Switchfoot isn't a christian band, right? But anyways your tab is pretty accurate. Good Job

Switchfoot IS a christian band

ChristianLife - 2005-04-11

Actually, the first guy is partially correct; Switchfoot are Christian people, but they do not believe that BANDS can be christian. ANd i never said anything about them being christian in the first place. thank you

Actually, they were originally a Christian band that decided to switch over to spread the word... if you noticed basically all their songs involve God

Dude, it doesn't really matter when you think about it. The members of the band (hypothetical, of course) can be Christian or not, and they can claim to be a Christian band or not, but what really matters is the message in the songs, and the lyrics. Remember, Paul tells us to think about whatever is True, Noble, Right, Pure, etc. Some secular bands meet this criteria, too. Don't trust what the band says, compare their music to the objective standard of the Bible.

I think that the song really goes:
Cmaj7 G(add2) Am7 F

about them being christian or not......I think they are because, for some reason, every song I've heard by them has inspired me so much that I now see life in another way....knowing whats behind the music (basically the lyrics) is the important stuff....its where its all at, its where the meaning takes place. they may be christian in a personal way, but I do believe that their lyrics are somehow Biblical...cheers!! xoxo
