Just to tell you guys, the "D" is a D5!

x x 5 7 7 x

matt j t - 2005-01-27

Oops! What I meant was:

x 5 7 7 x x

Hey, Matt j t!
what are power chords?
-Andy Miller

matt j t - 2005-02-12

Power chords are just like saying "5" chords

for example: Em - G - D (use power chords) means

E5 - G5 - D5.

Andy Miller - 2005-02-13

Matt j t,
so how do you play the power chords?
-Andy Miller

matt j t - 2005-02-14

This is how to play the "power chords" on this song:

D = x 5 7 7 x x

G = 3 5 5 x x x

B = x 2 4 4 x x

A = 5 7 7 x x x -or- x 0 2 2 x x

E = 0 2 2 x x x

I hope that helps.

matt j t - 2005-02-15

Just to let you know, the only chord that is not a "power chord"
is the "Bm" in the verses and the bridge.

MTMK - 2005-06-17 ROOOOOOCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

matt j t - 2005-06-21

thanks matty!!!!

walking4jesus - 2005-06-29

the Em is actually an Emaj, to F#/A to G, at least thats what sounds best to me

matt j t - 2005-06-30

about the Em....i know it's Emaj.....but i meant to say E5....which is the same as Em

gsus_freak7 - 2005-07-01

Gee...I don't know... I have the real copy righted Book and this is almost the same exact chords ( except for flats or minors or sumin like that.) But its illegal to copy the real chords. ;) ><>

castingcrowns14 - 2005-07-02

can any one give me the lyrics with them? the words help me know when to transfer to different chords. thanx!

matt j t - 2005-07-08

yeah i'll give them to u...........and hey gsus_freak7, i figured this out myself.....i know that it is wrong to copy from the book......i guess that's how good my tab is...... ;) oh yeah......who voted on this that made it less then 5.0?

gsus_freak7 - 2005-07-18

ok, misjugdement i guess. Forgimme?

matt j t - 2005-07-19

yeah don't worry about it....

DaGeek - 2005-11-16

Are you sure it's a B in the chorus? When I play it, it sounds odd... What's the power chord version of B? Maybe that will work.

matt j t - 2005-11-18

I posted it above, but incase you didn't see:

B = x 2 4 4 x x

beattitudekorah - 2006-04-23
