Comments about this tab

jesus rules ok - 2005-01-10

DUDE!? what the f*** is that first chord?? how can u say youre one hundred percent correct when that isnt even a chord!!?? 445534 my a**! tab it properly or not at all!


becauseHelives - 2005-01-11

It may not be the correct way to play it but there is no reason for cussing especially on a Christian site. So if you feel the compulsion to cuss then goto another site for your tabs.


pearlbasher34 - 2005-01-17

Ok, instead of cussing out the dude who made a mistake(which we all do) how about I just write out the chord the correct way - 335543(C#m). This is a great song and a great tab. Hope I helped someone, especially beginners cause I was one too.


surge88 - 2005-01-25

sorry about the confusion with that chord. its actually 446654. i dont know what chord that is, but sometimes people make up their own.


pearlbasher34 - 2005-02-03

Yeah- the chord 446654 is a C#m, I put it in ( ) in the other correction cause I wasn't sure what chord the tabber actually meant. Thanks for getting the right one. But yeah-C#m.


sk8tdue8 - 2005-02-07

The small solo actually goes

Great job. Man, this a great tab, you don't need to swear here. Please keep it to yourself, Jesus rules ok.


David wood - 2005-03-18

HEY "JESUS RULES OK" WHAT IS UP WITH THE CUSSING. LIKE THE GUY A FEW COMMENTS A GO THIS A CHRISTIAN SITE.


Anthony24 - 2005-04-08

So if this is a 'christian' website, shouldnt that mean that you shouldnt be going crazy at someone because the way you have been tought makes a few words 'cuss' words??

God is much bigger than a few words that humans classify as 'bad'.

Its just a few letters bunched together.


Mara - 2005-04-14

That's not the point. The point is that certain "cuss" words are offensive to certain people. Christ wouldn't unnecessarily offend people. If you were offended by something I did I would try not to do it around you. Swearing offends people, and it clearly offended several people here, including myself.


Anthony24 - 2005-04-18

Well... Jesus didn't yell at people straight away for their the things they have done wrong... He showed compassion... You don't need to shoot the guy straight away, if it offended you, just stay away from it or tell the person off nicely.


srcbwc1 - 2005-04-19

Jesus rules ok
what you doin' talkin' like that man?


Krarwoodwatcher - 2005-04-19

Okay, the reason cuss words are cuss words is because they have negative conotations. For example, if you say D*** you, then what you are saying is you are condemning them to go to H***. The H*** isn't a bad word if used in the proper context. If you say that non-christians go to H***, then you are making a reference to the place and that is okay. However, out of context, it is being used in vain without respect to what it actually entails. That is what makes it wrong. The same for D***. If you read in the bible, the word is used often to describe what has happened to a sinner. But in that case the meaning of the word is actually fulfilled. If you say to someone D***, then you are saying something you don't mean and are treating the Lord's punishment lightly. And if you do mean it, well, lets just not go there.

S*** is crude, but so is crap (sorry to anyone who doesn't like it) and i don't quite understand why that is a bad word.

F*** is just bad all over. In one sense, it has the same conotations as D***. Nowadays, there is also the conotation of sexually assulting someone, which is pretty bad too. So the word has an extremely bad conotation and shouldn't be used.

Hope that helps.

coolcowboy - 2005-05-04

yeah you said it... wow.... ok how about zero, nada, zip, cussing in life period?..huh?... and you are probably thinking, "Well that sounds like a great idea, except it won't happen because there are so many people in this world." well guess what it's not impossible..... so it might as well begin with me...

curt02k1 - 2005-05-22

pretty good tab...i just wish someone would post "monday comes around"...switchfoot's underground "new" song


Spinnaay - 2005-07-04

Intro bass tab (or guitar)

e---------------------------------------
b---------------------------------------
G--------9----------9------------13-----
D-11--11---11---11-----11-----11-----9--
A--------------------------12-----------
E---9---------9-------------------------

And there also is some very nice slide parts around the C#, octaves work.
And then just before the singing there is a B to C# hammer on on the e string.
Also beginning of second verse under 'yesterday is a kid in the corner' there is a decending fill on the E major pentatonic.

e-12-9-------------
b------12-9--------
G-----------11--9--

Also the riff before quiet chorus, this can also be doubled up by bass, sounds good.

e-----------------------------------
b-----------------------------------
G-----------------------------------
D---------6----------6-/7--6--------
A---2-/4------2-/4-------------7----
E-----------------------------------


jamforchrist123 - 2005-10-29
