"Like a Child"
Jars of Clay
11th Hour Live DVD (filmed in 2002)

Reason to submit tab:
I have decided to submit this tab because it is in an alternate tuning, which
every tab that I have found has been in a standard tuning.  Also, I have 
included a tab of the solo; a correct tab I should say.

As you may know, Jars of Clay loves to play with alternate tunings. I was 
watching the Jars of Clay live DVD and saw that when they started playing this
song, it was unlike any of the other tabs I had seen for it.  So I quickly 
picked up my guitar and started messing with the tunings until I got to one 
that looked and sounded like the chords the guitarist was playing. From there,
it was just a matter of figuring out which chords to play.  I have tabbed out
the song as best as I could.  I have included parts of the lyrics to show where
certain chords should be played.

Guitar tuned to EABEBE

Capo 3

Here is the basic riff for the verses:

  E     A     A

e-0--x--0--x--0--
b-0--x--0--x--0--
e-0--x--0--x--0--
b-0--x--2--x--2--   Repeat this throughout the verses.
A-2--x--0--x--0--
E-0--x-----x-----



      E      A         E      A       E      A
Dear God,         surround me as i speak

      E            A                E      A
The bridges that i walk across are weak
							   <     <= accent
         E        A        E        A                 E	   A
The frustrations fill the void that i cant soley bare



Note:  On the DVD, the guitarist plays a hormanic here before starting the
second part of the first verse.  Here is what I have been able to pick out:

e--(12)
b--(12)
E--(12)
B--(12)   This is actually on fret 15, but guitar is in Capo 3.
A------
E------


Play the same rhythm for the 2nd part of the verse.  Here is where the second 
guitar comes in.  He is playing something like the following:


e-------------							   ---
b-12-10-8-7-8-							   -7-
E-------------							   ---
B-12-10-8-7-8-  Repeats 3 times.  On the fourth time, stop on the  -7-
A-------------                                                     ---
E-------------                                                     ---


Here is the riff that is played before the chorus:

A-----------0--

   If I will follow and   believe...


with faith like a child


Play through 2nd verse and chorus



Here is the jam, or at least the best notation I can come up with:


e---2---5--5-----2---5--5---
b---0---0--0-----0---0--0---
E---2---5--0-----2---5--0---
B---0---0--5-----0---0--5---    Play this three times, then play this:
A---2---5--x-----2---5--x---
E----------5------------5---

e---0--2---5---7---
b---0--0---0---0---
E---0--2---5---7---
B---0--0---0---0---
A---2--2---5---7---
E---0--0-----------

*drum fill - 1 measure*



*****  SOLO  *****

This is tabbed out as if played in Capo 3.  
So 12 would really be the 15th fret.

**Capo 3**

e------12--11--9--7--4--5--7--4/5/4-0---0-0--0--2
b-------0---0--0--0--0--0--0--0-0-0-0---0h2--0--0
E------12--11--9--7--4--5--7--4/5/4-0---0-0--0--2
B---------------------------------------0h2--0---
A------------------------------------------------
E------------------------------------------------

(continue solo)..                       + riff into chorus

e------12--11--9--7--4--5--7--4/5/4-0----------------
b-------0---0--0--0--0--0--0--0-0-0-0----------------
E------12--11--9--7--4--5--7--4/5/4-0----------------
B-----------------------------------------0h2p0------
A-------------------------------------------------0--
E---------------------------------------0------------



Play through chorus 2 times.


Play the jam again.  After the -7- 
                               -0-
                               -7-
                               -0-
                               -7-
                               ---

it goes kinda like this:

e--0--0---0--0---0--0----0--0---
b--5--0---5--0---5--0----0--7---
E--0--5---0--5---0--5----2--0---
B--5--5---5--5---5--5----0--7---
A--x--0---x--0---x--0----2--0---
E--4--0---4--0---4--0----0--7---

e--0--0---0--0---0--0----0--0---0--0---0--0---0
b--5--0---5--0---5--0----0--7---0--7---0--7---0
E--0--5---0--5---0--5----2--0---2--0---2--0---0
B--5--5---5--5---5--5----0--7---0--7---0--7---2    Let ring...
A--x--0---x--0---x--0----2--0---2--0---2--0---0
E--4--0---4--0---4--0----0--7---0--7---0--7---0



Well, that is it.  I am not sure about the last 2 chords before the song ends,
but it is about as close as I can get it.  Have fun!

Hey guys, it is me again, Gamehenge

I found a couple of mistakes in my own tab! Well, clerical mistakes at least. On the chorus, the chords are tabbed out correctly, but the last chord is an A, not a C...it is tabbed correctly though.

Another mistake I found was during the outro.
Wherever you see this chord: e-0- replace it with this: e-0-
b-0- b-0-
E-2- E-0-
B-0- B-2-
A-2- A-0-
E-0- E-2-

That should do it, i think. Let me know if there is anything else that needs to be changed. Thanks!

GH
