Note to Christian Guitar: More sections added to Guitar 1; Guitar 2 added

Artist: Shawn Mcdonald
Song: Take My Hand
Album: Simply Nothing

Note: I am not 100% responsible for tabbing this song. The main beat for
guitar 1 was tabbed by Mandi9 and the guitar 2 part labeled (with capo 3)
who i've seen was tabbed by goowiz. everything else was tabbed by me.

Guitar 1:
(Capo 3)
e -----x------x-------x-------x-------x-------x-------x-------x------x
B ---3-x----3-x-----3-x-----3-x-----3-x-----3-x-----3-x-----3-x----3-x
G ---0-x----0-x-----2-x-----2-x-----0-x-----0-x-----0-x-----0-x----0-x
D -----x-2----x-2-----x-0-----x-0-----x-2-----x-2-----x-0-----x-0----x
A -0---x---0--x---2---x---2---x---3---x---3---x-------x-------x--0---x
E -----x------x-------x-------x-------x-------x--3----x--2----x------x
   (1)    (2)     (3)     (4)    (5)    (6)      (7)     (8)    (1)

You play this throughout the entire song, with the exception of one part 
of the song.

When you hit around 1:26 of the song,
where he begins to sing "I fall to my knees...", you play this:

e-------------------------------------------------------------------
B----------3---------------3---------------3------------------------
G--------0---0-----------0---0-----------2---2-----------2-------2--
D------0-------0-------2-------0-------2-------2-------0-------0----
A----0-----------0---0-----------0---2-----------2---2-------2------
E--0---------------0---------------0---------------0-------0--------

e-------------------------------------------------------------------
B----------3---------------3---------------3------------------------
G--------2---2-----------0---0-----------0---0-----------0-------0--
D------0-------0-------0-------0-------2-------2-------0-------0----
A----2-----------2---3-----------3---3-----------3---0-------0------
E--0---------------0---------------0---------------3-------2--------

then you go straight back go playing the normal beat.
(hint: if you look at how you finger the notes, the finger placements
are exactly the same as the regular beat)

now to go onto guitar 2.

Guitar 2:
(Capo 3 is optional)
After the 1st guitarrist plays his entire beat through once,
or once you hit around 00:07 of the song,
the second guitarrist would play this:
 
(with capo 3)
E---------------------------------------------------
B--1h3--0----1h3--0----1h3--0----0h1h3--------------
G---------------------------------------2-----------
D---------------------------------------------------
A---------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------

OR

(without capo 3)
E---------------------------------------------------
B--4h6--3----4h6--3----4h6--3----3h4h6--------------
G---------------------------------------5-----------
D---------------------------------------------------
A---------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------

when the song hits about 01:34 guitar 2 plays a short beat,
once he starts around saying "... new from the inside out..."

E--10h11-10h11-10-13--
B---------------------
G---------------------   x2
D---------------------
A---------------------
E---------------------

At about 02:09 the 2nd guitarrist plays this:

E--13--13--13--11--11--11--10--10--10--11--11--11------
B------------------------------------------------------
G------------------------------------------------------
D------------------------------------------------------
A------------------------------------------------------
E------------------------------------------------------

E--13--13--13--11--11--11--10--10--10--11--10--11--10--
B------------------------------------------------------
G------------------------------------------------------
D------------------------------------------------------
A------------------------------------------------------
E------------------------------------------------------

E--13--13--13--11--11--11--10--10--10--11--10--11--10--
B------------------------------------------------------
G------------------------------------------------------
D------------------------------------------------------
A------------------------------------------------------
E------------------------------------------------------

E--13--13--13--11--11--11--10--10--10--10h11-----------

a friend of mine caught me on this, i forgot to leave a note for the rest of the guitar 2 parts. after the guitar 2 part around 00:07, all those tabs for guitar 2 are non-capo. if you add the capo just bring everything down by 3 frets, sorry about that.


baboxwangdda - 2006-03-24

technically you would be playing on the 10th 11th and 13th fret so if it makes it any easier just use the markers on your guitar to find those spots and play there, i just forgot that i still had the capo on and that would raise it to 16th =x
