natshere - 2005-01-03

Im' With RK911. What PedaL Do You Use For The Verse?


Choysauce - 2005-06-13

ahhhhh, now that i listen with headphones, i got so many parts wrong. ima redo this when my finals are done ^__^


Choysauce - 2005-06-13

and about the pedal, it might be a light flanger, not sure though, i can definitely hear the acoustic guitar in the background though


cgplaya - 2005-06-15

Verse should be:
C5 D5 F5 G5


nice guy - 2005-06-28

i think for the most part he might use a D2 maga distortion peddle, keep up the good work... steven


jamforchrist123 - 2005-07-21

Actully, It Kinda Sounds Like Chords On A Bass


greatbass123 - 2005-08-12

awesome job on this tab. i love relient k they have such hard riffs to learn. i tried forever to learn this by myself i guess i was pretty close but that is an awesome tab.


EcPuNkRoCkEr92 - 2005-12-02

55 55 5 88 10 10


EcPuNkRoCkEr92 - 2005-12-02

other than that it's a pretty good tab


EcPuNkRoCkEr92 - 2005-12-06

33 44 4 77 \10 10 9 9 10

33 44 4 77 9 9
