Falcon-fever777 - 2006-04-28

close but the final chorus oicking with the 10-7 are off. he doesn't keep playing 10-7. he switches.


AllForHim2008 - 2006-05-05

guys if you can tab any of the new cd "face of love" then please let me know @ tmckenzie@madison.k12.al.us
Sanctus Rocks and I could use some collaboration on tabbing these new songs.
thanks
God Bless. rock on. peace


Falcon-fever777 - 2006-05-15

I will try hard to remember, I almost have the song the face of love done.


idaman_1111 - 2006-05-23

Justyn


tl_guitarnut - 2006-06-26

I think the lead plays something different in the verse


I Am Not - 2006-07-13

Hey.....Can someone tab the ENTIRE Acoustic version of "Im Not Alright".....This acoustic version sounds really good. The only place I found this version is on iTunes. You can download this song for .99 cents. I would be much aprreciated if someone can tab the acoustic version. Thanks brothas.

I Am Not


GeorgiagurlB15 - 2006-09-01

Hey! Great tab! But I was wondering if you could put the acoustic version of this on here?? Would be much appriciated! God bless!
*BeTh*


musikfreak165 - 2006-09-18

okay, I haven't tried this but I think it'll be right, rather than this for the intro:

Eb|--8/-8/-8/-8/-8/-8/-8/-8/-8/-8/-8bbb--|
Gb|-12/12/12/10/10/10/12/12/12/12/12bbb--|

try this:

Eb|--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--|
Bb|-12-12-12-10-10-10-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13--|


CrossbearerJDC9 - 2006-09-18

Sweet man.
CrossbearerJDC9 - Pick Up Your Cross


rednaxela - 2006-10-16

Hey how do u put it into that tuning?


musikfreak165 - 2006-10-19

*clears throat* here we go into a little tuning lesson:

C#-G#-C#-F#-A#-D#

take the E string and start turning the tuner for it to the right (or, if you don't have your strings on right, whichever way makes it lower). Go to D#, then D, then C#.

on the rest of the strings do the same thing but only go one note lower.

yay! you've successfully tuned your guitar to C#!!!

I hope that's what you meant by "how do you tune that far?"


rednaxela - 2006-10-27

Thanks


drumin2dabeat - 2006-11-02

this tab may be correct, but the exact tab that is played can be found at

http://srboards.vervecreations.net/viewtopic.php?t=3445

it is tabbed by Chris the lead guitar player for the band...so im guessing its correct


sanctusfootrock - 2006-11-17

sanctusfootrock


madguitarist - 2006-11-18
