Hey everyone, I'm very sure that this is at least almost all 100% correct.
As you can see, I picked out what I think is a second guitar part, because you
know, Falling Up DOES have two guitars. I hope this works!
God Bless,

Well even though they got two guitars doesn't mean they play it in fact I saw them last night and only tom played it, and I noticed he doesn't start on 000 but on 444 so your "100%" is not really 100%.


Jimbo12 - 2005-01-23

Just because one of their guitarists played it live doesn't mean there's not two parts for it on the CD. After all, the low part is a lot easier to hear than the high part. After Jessy sings "You can break, I hold 'cause something etched this way", and the B power chord is played or whatever note it is, if you listen closely you can hear that part go on when the lower part comes in. Also, you can see Tom playing it like that in the video. I also heard it every time they play the chorus. All right, so maybe he does start on the fourth fret and not the open string. It's hard to tell you know. And you could be a bit nicer about it. At least I tried.


Jimbo12 - 2005-01-31

Yes, on the CD that high guitar part is definitely there.


sac346 - 2007-02-12

You gueys are funny. he holds his hand over the fourth fret for the intro's first note. he doesn't push it down. he does that because they start at 0, not 1. if you watch his hand, you will find that it goes down after the first note.
