This is dead on, except for one part, at the end of the intro (and everywhere else he does it), it sounds better if you do this:

E|------------------
B|------------------
G|------------------
D|---------2--------
A|---2h4-------2----
E|------------------


jaw_harper - 2005-12-12

cngp90 - 2005-12-16

that sounds awesome
thanks for tabbing this one, I've been wondering how to play it.


Third_Day_Rocks - 2005-12-19

You're right about this part C.RiceWannabe:

Verse:
E B A B E B A
Then this after the last A chord:
e|--------------|
B|--------2-----|
G|--2-2---2--2--|
D|--0-4------4--|
A|--------------|
E|--------------|


I realized I put the tab on the wrong strings, it should be this:

Verse:
E B A B E B A
Then this after the last A chord:
e|-------------|
B|-------------|
G|-------2-----|
D|--2-2--2--2--|
A|--0-4-----4--|
E|-------------|

Hey just read the tab. The Cords are dead on! But, I've been messing around with the tab part myself and found that he's most likely doing it mre like this.
e----------------------------------------------
B-9-9-9-9-9/7--10-10-10-10-10/9--9-9-9-9-9-7-5-
G----------------------------------------------
D----------------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------

e-----------------------
B-----5-----------------
G-5-6---6---------------
D-----------------------
A-----------------------
E-----------------------

Anyway, that's what I think he does along with the chords you've put down.


Third_Day_Rocks - 2006-07-03

I don't think that is right because it sounds like he's playing more than one note. And it's not that high up.


Third_Day_Rocks - 2006-07-17

Actually after playing around with that I found that the end of the intro tab sounds better like this:
D|------2---|
A|-3h4----4-|
E|----------|
Good correction Jon Shae
