(C)1995 Class Reunion Music/Little Man Big Man Music/gray dot songs, a
division of gray dot, inc. (ASCAP)

I think this song as in all Third Day songs has at least 2 guitar parts 
(probably more that I cnat pick out). I'll try my best to seperate them
but it can also be played very easily on one guitar I also want to thank 
Jeremy Bell (jbell47@hotmail.com)for getting me started and giving me 
some hints enjoy

mmggppmgp - 2005-07-28

mmggppmgp - 2005-07-28

i noe for sure though that the 1/3 in ur ending is not as full

as a slide from a C to a Dtriad(x54030)

I noticed that the TAB for this song and "Love Song" were listed here as being more than one guitar. I played those two tracks in '95 and it was just me. Mac did a scratch vocal part in the hallway of the studio as I played guitar. David Carr used to work in my music store and Tai Anderson took guitar lessons from me. I was happy to go and play when asked. The important thing is that they have shared the gospel message all over the world in a direct and positive way. Praise God.
