Comments about this tab

coolbeans5627 - 2004-11-23

Hey people,
I'm the one that wrote this tab up. I made a couple mistakes that I'm gonna fix. And the Bridge really doesn't sound right so if someone wants to try and fix that they can. I'll prolly give it a shot, but any help would be appreciated. Okay...

Mistake #1
(Pre-Chorus 1)
|----------------------------------------------------------
|----------------------------------------------------------
|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-------------------------------------------- (2x)
|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--5-5-5-5-5--0-0-0-0-0--7-7-7-7--9-9--5-5-5-
|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5-5--0-0-0-0-0--7-7-7-7--9-9--5-5-5-
|----------------5-5-5-5-5--0-0-0-0-0--7-7-7-7--9-9--5-5-5-

Mistake #2
(Pre-Chorus 2)
|----------------------------------------------------------
|----------------------------------------------------------
|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-------------------------------------------- (2x)
|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--5-5-5-5-5--0-0-0-0-0--7-7-7-7--9-9--5-5-5-

|-----------------------------------------------------------

|----------------5-5-5-5-5--0-0-0-0-0--7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7-7-7-
. . . . . .

Mistake #3
Okay, at the end of the 2nd Chorus I put this:

|------- |-------
|------- |-------
|--2~~~- it's supposed to be this...: |--4~~~-
|--4~~~- |--4~~~-
|--4~~~- |--2~~~-
|------- |-------

A stupid mistake, but oh well.
Okay now the song should be close to perefect except for the Bridge which I'm curently working on. But if someone out there can fix it before i get the chance, have at it. \m/(oo)\m/ Rock On!
-Jeff


coolbeans5627 - 2004-11-23

hmmmm,
They messed up my spacing on the last one. Try this...

It WAS this:
|-------
|-------
|-2~~~~-
|-4~~~~-
|-4~~~~-
|-------

It's SUPPOSED to be this:
|-------
|-------
|-4~~~~-
|-4~~~~-
|-2~~~~-
|-------

\m/(oo)\m/ Rock On!

grim reaper - 2005-03-17

i think your all wrong


dwdrumma - 2005-03-20

I agree with the guy agove me, u got this all wrong man, i have my guitar right her, its in C# tuning, i also have the CD playing in the background... and um, it isnt the same.... I have been playing for a long time now, and man, u need to do some serious work on this. I only played through the intro and didnt go any further, i meen its bad... could u tell there is a HUGE difference?


dwdrumma - 2005-03-20

what the crap, why did it put my name on every single one of the comments... hm...


farfromhim - 2005-05-16

Nearly the entire album is tuned a half-step down, spoken as in reference to someone who spoke with Thessien about it. This one is included with those that's tuned down.


jamforchrist123 - 2005-06-01

1. This Tab Is Near Perfect. (With The Corrections)
So To Whoever Said This Is Wrong, Notice That Its
In Drop C# Tuning.

2. To The Dude That Wrote The Tab. On The Verse Where
You Have:

Eb|-----------------------
Bb|-----------------------
Gb|-4---4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4---
Db|-4---4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4---
Ab|-2---2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---
Db|-----------------------
. . . . . . . .

Its Really This:

Eb|----------------------
Bb|----------------------
Gb|----------------------
Db|--9---9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-
Ab|--9---9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-
Db|--9---9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-
* * * * * * * *

If You Listen to the song, You Will Here That.


nyghthybrid - 2005-06-08

Could someone re-tab this??? its way too confusing with all the comments.
thnx
James


collegerocker17 - 2005-07-16

Hey man, I agree. It's definetely confusing. I'm gonna play the song a few times, with the different corrections, and then I'll submit a new tab later today. Hope that'll help! God bless!

GuitaristofGod - 2005-08-20

Someone really need to just clean this whole tab up. Its sounds pretty close but it would b great if someone would just clean it. I'm tring to do it on powertabs but i need a basic draft..


guesswhoiam - 2005-09-24

hey, in case no one has figured it out yet, if the guitar is tuned the way that the tab says it should be, it is gonna sound really bad. all of the strings are tuned down half a step, except the sixth string, which in tuned down one and a half steps down. try tuning the guitar in drop D# tuning(the same thing, only the sixth string is D# instead of C#)


jamforchrist123 - 2005-10-07

Hey Dude, You And The Tabber Are Saying to Tune Your GUitar To The Same Thing. You Guys ARe Just Calling It Different Things. You ARe Calling It Drop D# As In Tuning Yur Guitar A Half Step Down, Then Drop The D# (Eb) To C#. The Tabber Just Called It Drop C#. I Don't Mean To Sound Snobby Or Anything, I Am Just Trying T Clear Things Up.


sk8a12 - 2005-11-26

sportsnutman5 just put up the intro for "when i go down". the song after "life after death...". he did good on that he just commented on the wrong page


Switchfoot_ - 2007-03-08

I was tabbing it and i came out with this( I tabbed the verse, And pre-chorus. still havn't figured out the chorus. I also have the bridge, and the ending chords)

Tunning: half step down

Intro: C#m C A#m x2 F#m G#m C (slide down to A#m real fast after C) F#m (Slide down to F real fast after F#m)x2

Verse: A#m (then palm mute all the strings) then F#m A#m G#m F#m x2

Pre-chorus:C#m F#m C#m F#m Then A#m F#m x2 Then G#m A#m F#m

Bridge: F#m G#m A#m C#m F#m

Ending:F#m G#m C A#m

There You go. it sounds like the real thing.
