Comments about this tab

Prof. Footbag - 2004-11-19

This tab is pretty accurate the only thing I noticed is that they play this song in drop D tuning. (D A D G B E) So all notes on the 6th(D) string will be played 2 frets above what is shown in this tab. Also, the two chords played during the last part of the end piano solo are E|--------
B|--------
G|-------- D|--4--0--
A|--4--0--
D|--4--0--


Prof. Footbag - 2004-11-19

Sorry that last post didn't come out well the last two chords are:

E|--------|
B|--------|
G|--------|
D|--4--0--|
A|--4--0--|
D|--4--0--|


stratocasterman - 2004-11-20

YES!!! THIS SONG RULES!!!!!!!!!
i like this cd
its more serious and better than
the others in my opinion
but the others are still great


jsoccer - 2004-11-22

ever since i heard this song on the radio ive been waiting for someone to tab this song


nathaliepk07 - 2004-11-28

hi! im trying to teach myself guitar, with the help of my dad and brother of course, but i was wondering how do you read these tabs? or whatever they're called? Becuase i've never seen these before.....? Help? email me or whatever


bc2skaterpunk - 2004-12-01

for the 2nd guitar during the chorus after each of the 1st guitar power chords try something like this
e|
B|
G|-15-14-
D|-------15
A|
E|


rkeman - 2004-12-03

to read the tabs just look at the number and what string it's played on>>so if theres a number 4 on the e string play the e string on the fourth fret..you'll catch on so don't worry...and this tab is pretty good..though the chorus and verses are pretty simple..so good job


nicchern - 2004-12-09

ive played a little bit of this tab and it sounds correct for the most part but is there any way that you could make one that is a little easier to read and that is not so jump aroundish


homas - 2004-12-30

Hi im from England, just wonderi, do you guys here christian bands like rk on radio?


mmggppmgp - 2004-12-30

of course... dude i really like this song cuz i liked it from the radio... In my opinion this is not their best cd cuz all their CD rocks and I show no favoritism in their CD's... hehe... Their CD is more serious and more mature than their previous ones. There are high and lows in that but i think i give RK 10 out of 5... that is like 200% oh well do the Math... God Bless!!!!


mmggppmgp - 2004-12-30

neways i really like this song, and since im an evil brother(just kidding), im going to make my little sister figure out the piano parts by ear. And when she does im going to transpose it and submit it... the thing is she might not but there is a good chance... Aight God Bless


mmggppmgp - 2004-12-30

im sorry guys i dont think she dont want to... sorry


rkeman - 2005-01-05

be on the lookout for rk's 12"


bob6621 - 2005-01-13

hey does anyone have any chords for this song


39lashes - 2005-01-19

the intro for me works well using a Dm and slide down with e string notes


gregorykicks - 2005-02-11

Hey good job, but i think the very beginning goes like this (i'm just giving the chord you'll get the timing
e-9---9--9---9---9---9-- do that 2 times. the last chord is when the bass
B-10--9--10--9---9---10- comes in for the first time. You should be done
G-11--11-11--11--9---11- playing this rift whenver he puts the echo effect
D-11--11-11--11--11--11- on the guitar. Hope this helps.
A-9---9--9---9---9---9-- Greg
E-9---9--9---9---9---9--

jt16935 - 2005-03-04

Great tab! Can you try to tab Pressing on because no one has it just right.thnx!


niceguy - 2005-03-05

Hey i have the tab for pressing on and this is how it goes.

E-----------4-4------------1-1
B-----4--------------1--------------4
G-------3-4------3-1---3-4------3-1 you start on B.
D------
A------
E------


guitarist4god14 - 2005-03-08

Almost, it's played on the lower stings and he uses power chords on the 1-beats


G--6-*-3/4------3/1--3-*--3/4-------3/1-
D--6-*---------------3-*----------------
A--4-*---------------1-*----------------
E----------4-4----------------2-2-------


Hahathefunnyone - 2005-03-13

Hey for the intro to pressing on, I think it sounds better to use power cords for the [ E|--4 and E|---2 but hey this is Cl,Cs&tlc not pressing on...


jamforchrist123 - 2005-03-18

Yo, Why Are We Discusing Pressing On? Why Not Do That In The Pressing On Tabs?
Second, For The Intro, I Play This:

E--9---9---9---9--9--
B-10---9--10---9--9--
G-11--11--11--11--9-- 2x
D-11--11--11--11--9--
A--9---9---9---9--9--
E--------------------

Sorry If This Is Off, I Don't Have My Guitar
With Me Right Now.


sk8erje16 - 2005-03-24

I just asked thiessen and he said the whole album is tuned a half step down...obviously this song doesnt use any of the chords that you would need to tune a half step down...but I guess if you would like to play them how they play them on the record just take everything down...or something.


OC-humbleguitar - 2005-04-05

On the pre-verse ("I gotta get outta here..."), the high fill can be played:
e|------|-----------------------
B|10-9--|-----------------------
G|-----9|---9-------------------
D|------|11---9---9-11p9--------
A|------|----------------12p11-9
E|------|This last part is hard to hear on the recording, but it sounds cool

Yes, I am aware, rk plays it a half step down, but I know theissen plays standard tuning, not dropped like some guy said.


v@por - 2005-05-03

did you watch the music video yet?
www.myspace.com/relientk
there's this part in the video where thiessen does 8,8,10,9,8,8
is the beginning


guitardude15 - 2005-05-03

How does the begging of be my escape go?


guitardude15 - 2005-05-03

How are you talking to Thiessen?


OC-humbleguitar - 2005-05-07

e|--x----x----x--x--x--x----x--x----x----x--x-

E|--x----x----x--x--x--x----x--x--x----x--x--x-

That's the intro, with rythme


Down_In_Flames - 2005-05-16

regarding the 1st post: if you drop D it then play 2 above its the exact same thing. it's ten times easier to keep it standard


Down_In_Flames - 2005-05-16

where do you hear them on the radio?!? plaese for all that is good in this world tell me!!!!


rockin_4_Christ - 2005-05-27

yeah how are you talking to Thiessen


rockin_4_Christ - 2005-05-27

o by the way, what do u play right after the intro or it might still be part of the intro where it is like 16th notes or w/e where i think its 2 guitars? did that make any sence? right before the piano starts playing


Fatherladd - 2005-06-02

You almost have the Intro right...It's actually this:
The slashs above the one tab is the other guitar.

e|--x----x----x--x--x--x----x--x----x----x--x-

e|--x----x----x--x--x--x----x--x----x----x--x-

G|--11---11---11-11-11-11---11-11---11---11-11
D|--12---12---12-12-12-12---12-12---12---12-12
A|--9----9----9--9--9--9----9--9----9----9--9-
E|--x----x----x--x--x--x----x--x----x----x--x-

A|--9----9----9--9--9--9----9--9--9----9--9--9-
E|--x----x----x--x--x--x----x--x--x----x--x--x-

Then for the next part the guitars do this (Using the chords for the letters I put up there):
Gtr 1 A A B C Do that
Gtr 2 A A B C 4x

I'm making a powertab of this right now but I may go ahead and submit a tab here to!


jesusismyhero - 2005-06-04

Yes please make a power tab! Oh, and how do you finger those chorus chords? I can't figure it out! When I try and use my pointer finger to mute all of the chords and have my pinky and middle finger pressing down on the other ones (like a bar chord almost) but it sounds horrible! What did I do wrong?


Fatherladd - 2005-06-05

Don't try to mute them, just okay the power chord...I'm sure thats what the other person meant anyway. I posted how I have of the power tab in the forum, But I haven't finished it yet and don't know if I will.


Fatherladd - 2005-06-05

Also verse two need a revision:

Verse 2:
Do this 4 times (mute the notes with *'s on them)
e|--------|
B|--------|
G|--------|
D|--------|
A|------7-|
E|-*5*5---|
Then play the end of the little Piano part that is posted above.
Play both of these things together twice!
Ask if you need anything else.


guitargirl232 - 2005-06-10

wait... now im really confused... whats rite and whats not??? can somone please e-mail me this with the lyrics! please please please please please... o and my e-mail is jesusluvsu525@comcast.net ... THANKS A BUNCH!
Nicole


Fatherladd - 2005-06-12

Everything is right except the 2nd verse tab and the intro which I both posted above all this!


rockclimber06 - 2005-06-13

about that one person explain tabs to that other person.... how do you know what the rythyms are???? Or do you just have to know the song?


rockeraj - 2005-06-15

man it looks sounds pretty good but the prechorus dont sound right for some reason!!! or maybe its just me!!! no im not that mental!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


rockeraj - 2005-06-15

ok scratch that what i just said i meant verse!!!! leave me alone im SPECIAL!!!


klyr - 2005-06-24

A big part of playing guitar is to learn to play by ear and I'm not the best but I can usually figure it uot on my own....now that that has been said, on the intro the chord that is there is right for the first two measures but then it goes to "D" (the same thing on the fifth fret) hope this helps everyone who thinks there's something up with the intro like me. God bless


rockon4l1fe - 2005-06-24

this is amazing. i had the intro right. its the first time i figured out how to play part of a song just by listening to it. im so happy.


thebobert66 - 2005-06-26

dude, this song is pretty cool. my guitar teacher even though he's not a christian likes Relient K. pretty cool hu. im trying to pick this song up by ear.


rockin'4God21 - 2005-06-26

DUde, this tab rocks, so does RK,,, Thanx



`Cody


Bisquick - 2005-06-28

Yeah there is definitely a D hidden there.
I think the chord progression in the intro goes something like this:

F#-, F#-9, F#-, F#-9, D, D, D, D, F#-, F#-, F#-/D, F#-/D, F#-/A, F#-/A, F#-/E-F#, F#-/E-F#, A, A/B, D, D

where each comma signifies the end of a bar. Hope that helps...if you want you can IM me at Spymod HF and we can figure it out to perfection. Also, does anyone want the piano riff/chords?


guitarplayr4jc - 2005-07-01

i think the guy who tabed the song did good



Relient K Rox my Soxs


Alex


Fatherladd - 2005-07-11

It does go to the 12th fret d. Thats what I put in my tab halfway up, that gives it that little higher sounding part with the other guys playing over him.


HolyBlood8 - 2005-07-17

still how did you talk to thiessen????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????


jamforchrist123 - 2005-07-18

Ditto


jamforchrist123 - 2005-07-18

O Yeah, I Saw Relient k Last Monday
On Jay Lenno And When Hoopes Started The
Intro It Looked Like This:

E--9---9---9---9--9--
B-10---9--10---9--9--
G-11--11--11--11--9-- 2x
D-11--11--11--11--9--
A--9---9---9---9--9--
E--------------------

Only A Half Step Down (Duh)
Also In This Tab Where He Says
He Can't Make Out What They Are
Playing (I Think) The New Guy
And Hoopes Are Just Going Back And
Forth With The Intro Chords (Yet Again, I Think)


bronxbomber - 2005-07-21

yeah! sk8erje16!!! how are you talking to theissen?


bronxbomber - 2005-07-21

and jamforchrist is definately right about the intro.


rocketboy8690 - 2005-07-30

If your a paid member of the Relient K club, you can talk to the band.


dizzydaisy - 2005-08-06

hey could anyone but that to paino


dizzydaisy - 2005-08-06

here's my email dizzydaisygirl1992@hotmail.com thx


coolcowboy - 2005-08-13

Sup dudes! I started to try and figure out this song by ear several days ago and I first came up with this for the intro and it sounds very very close to it:

e--9---9---9---9--9--
B-10---9--10---9--9--
G-11--11--11--11--9--
D-11--11--11--11-11--
A--9---9---9---9--9--
E--x---x---x---x--x--

e--x---x--
B--x---x--
G--7---7-- <--follow the song's rythme for that part
D--7---7--
A--5---5--
E--x---x--

(then go back to start)

Then I usually continue going like this:
/// /// /// /// <--slashes indicate the quick strumming being played
e--9---9---9---9--
B-10--10--10---9--
G-11--11--11--11-- x4
D-11--11--11--11--
A--9---9---9---9-- (play according to the right timing & rythme of the song)
E--x---x---x---x--

After piano, go:

e--x---x---x-----x---x---x-x-x
B--x---x---x-----x---x---x-x-x
G--x---x---7-----11--9---x-6-7
D--7---9---7-----11--9---9-6-7
A--7---9---5-----9---7---9-4-5
E--5---7---x-----x---x---7-x-x

Pre-chorus:
/ / / /
e--x---x-----x---x-----
B--x---x-----x---x-----
G--11--7-----x---9-----
D--11--7-----7---9----- x3
A--9---5-----7---7-----
E--x---x-----5---x-----
H-- <--H means harmonics (play w/o pushing down)
vvvvvvvvvvvvvv// <--v means downstrokes only & / means strum
e--x-------x---x---
B--x-------x---x---
G--x-------7---9---
D--9-------7---9---
A--9-------5---7---
E--7-------x---x---

Chorus:
H--
v v v v v v v v//v v v v
e--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x
B--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x
G--x--9--7--9--x--9--7--9--x--9--7--9
D--7--9--7--9--7--9--7--9--7--9--7--9
A--7--7--5--7--7--7--5--7--7--7--5--7

B--x---x---x---x---
G--11--9---x---7---
D--11--9---9---7---
A--9---7---9---5---
E--x---x---7---x---

2nd Verse:
I'm getting really tired so I'm going to finish the rest of this typing later. All of this is one way that I have figured out how to play the song btw. So I'll finish this later. Goodnight (or morning) to you'all and have fun rocking and RK... "I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!" ok now I'm getting weird... I REALLY need some sleep now.lol.. ttyl dudes

prof. footbag, if you watch the "be my escape" video you'll see that they don't play in drop d, it is easier, but it doesn't sound as good b/c you'll be playing lower on the neck (btw you can see a stream of be my escape at my myspace if you want to see http://www.myspace.com/paintballer1087)


trupunkrawker - 2005-09-18

this has alot of replys going about nothing... maybe a mod could help


powerchordguy - 2006-01-13

Perfect tab. I don't know if anyone put this already, or if it's just obvious.
During the second chorus they play this lick.

E-5-4-0-
B- - - -
G- - - -

Just listen to the song. It's there


bassfreek208 - 2006-02-17

relient k started out Christian, but recently they've been moving away from Christian themes and toward mainstream themes, just like switchfoot has. they don't sing about un-Christian stuff, but they are slowly moving toward a more secular audience. they also recently went on tour with a few bands such as korn, which are all decidedly secular and who sing about stuff deserving a parental advisory label.

only time will tell though.

also, what did that guy up higher on the list mean when he said matt theissen told him how to play the guitar part?


goodwood505 - 2006-03-24

hey i would be so greatfull if someone could tell me the piano part of this song.



god bless


goodwood505 - 2006-03-24

sportsboi - 2006-04-08

hey guys first of all, 90% of the stuff on mmhmm is tuned a half a step down. the only ones that aren't are Be my escape, my girls ex-boyfriend and when i go down. ive also noticed that alot of you have been requesting the piano part to this song, so here it is, its all just played in eight notes but goes really fast:P im gonna have to put it into tab cuz its to hard to explain it...lol
e---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5--

You should get the cd's songbook. It has all the tabs with staff music for all the songs on MMHMM. The book is about $20 in most places. I got mine on eBay

Rock For Him,
The Kent


cody horne - 2006-04-29

some one make a chord version please!


chordsnottabs - 2006-05-22

cody horn your not alone i cant read tabs and i hate them...cause i cant read them and they do need a chord version.


fenderbender123 - 2006-05-23

Sounds better if the intro is played like this:

e--9 e--9
b--10 b--9
g--9 X5 g--9 X5 note: DON'T play big E
d--9 d--9
a--9 a--9
exxx exxx


Jimbob773 - 2006-06-23

I read the comment about relient k & switchfoot appealing to more secular audiences. I don't necessarily think that it's all that bad. I mean, if you listen to the lyrics, the themes are still there. I mean, yeah, they might play relient k in Hollister (i only went in there once and heard it by chance), but they still rock for the same reasons as they always have.


lokdonchrist - 2006-07-05

This is AWESOME i just started getting back into piano cuz of rk!!! w00t! heh xD anywayz i can't read the piano tabs so can someone send me an email w/ the chords plz!!

guitardude00 - 2006-10-14

if u have itunes download the relient k interview from revlution tv podcast it explains all the stuff if they r christian from theissen himself!


bob20 - 2006-12-09

what is x and / and whay do you do


bob20 - 2006-12-09

what do you do


RB+Gravity - 2007-01-07

you mute that string


RB+Gravity - 2007-01-08

i forget what / is...at the end of the intro (where u sed that you couldnt figure out the lead guitar and put the 2nd), i think the part is:
E|x--x--x--x--|x--x--x--x--||
B|10-10-10-10-|9--9--9--9--||
G|11-11-11-11-|11-11-9--9--||
D|11-11-11-11-|11-11-11-11-||
A|9--9--9--9--|9--9--9--9--||
E|------------|------------||


RB+Gravity - 2007-01-08

i think they do play it in drop d cuz i saw the yahoo exclusice performance and they only used one finger for the power chords
