You Are My Hope
Artist: Skillet
Album: Alien Youth (2001)
Words and Music By John L. and Korey Cooper
© 2001 Photon Music (BMI).  All Rights Reserved.
Tabbed by Matthew Wong (jamesgupt@gmail.com)
Lead Guitar Part, 4/4 time, C major, standard tuning

I noticed that there was not a complete lead guitar tab written for this song
so I thought I'd give it a shot and create my own.  This is as close to the
actual song as I could get it and it should be accurate except for maybe the
last bar in chorus and the very end.  If anyone has questions feel free to
e-mail me.
