Verse 2  (aside from playing the previous written verse tab, you could also 
          play the following; you realy have to listen to hear the timing.  I
          also think that the notes may be different for each repeat [more 
          slides and such])

Comments about this tab

WingedCousin - 2004-11-20

I forgot to add when I tabbed this that the 4-2 on the E string in the intro is really fast and hard to hear; it could even be left out and just play a 4 on the E string instead. I think it sounds better with the 4-2 but that is just me. God bless

Burndt - 2004-12-08

Your verse 2 is a little off. I think it goes more like this

e--12-12-12------------------11-11-11--------------------
B--------------11-11/12/12--------------9-9/10/9---------
G--------------------------------------------------------
D--------------------------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------

e--13-13-13-----------------7-----7----------------------
B---------------9/10----------10-------------------------
G-------------9------9----9----------9-------------------
D--------------------------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------

the second time through they add a couple more notes in, but you get the picture. Other than that it's a great tab. I give it a 5


Davy - 2005-01-22

awesome tab. first one ive seen anywhere near correct. but i think youre a little off on the verses.
for the first time, like "come back....me home" it's what youve got.
e----------------------------------------------------
B-------5--------------------------------------------
G--------------------3---------4---------4-----------
D----6----------------------2---------2--------------
A--4--------------4------0---------------------------
E----------4---2-------------------0-----------------
but the second part "give me...me whole" i think its, with F#m instead of F#
e----------------------------------------------------
B-------5--------------------------------------------
G--------------------2---------4---------4-----------
D----6----------------------2---------2--------------
A--4--------------4------0---------------------------
E----------4---2-------------------0-----------------
then repeat both in order again. this just sounds better to me when playing along with the track. via con Dios.

Good job on tabbing the song, the main tab and the post comments all sound pretty good, but I think the actual way the first part of the song is played goes like this:
---------------------------------------------------------------
---------5-------------------0---------------------------------
---------6---------3---------4---------4-----------------------
------6------------4------2------------4-----------------------
---4------------4------0------------2--------------------------
-------------2-------------------0-----------------------------

IT SUCKED ><> ???????????????????????????

Overhaul on the bridge...this took me a long time just listening to it and figuring it out...so I'm 99% sure it's right. It sounds kinda weird without the rest...but if you play it with the song...it sounds right. Also...the bridge comes out on different speakers. Some parts were played in one, some in another, this is a composite, so, everything's together.

The last two notes in () can barely be heard because the chorus comes in there. So it's up to you if you want to play it or not.


LeftshoeBob - 2006-06-24

Whoops, I meant Verse 2 not bridge.

Also, this tab's pretty fantastic anyways.

The bridge is a little off...I don't have it completely right yet but it's starts like this...and I don't have the rest.

And then I don't know...feel free to add on if you do.
