I love your tabs Relient Nelson!!!


relient nelson - 2006-06-08

Yay! :)


valkyriemissle - 2006-06-09

this tab is not correct..yur tabs er wrong ..mainly the intro!


tl_guitarnut - 2006-06-09

Don't listen to that guy, I have played this with the cd and it sounds exact


relient nelson - 2006-06-10

Thanks guitarnut! :) as to that other guy, he can think what he wants, I'm just trying to help. What specifically didn't you like about my tabs sir?


rockNforchrist - 2006-06-16

That sounds great! The thing I want to say is that I play Guitar 2s outro different. I play like this:

D#--333---------------------
A#------6-5-3----3--3-/5-3--
F#-------------5--5--------5 repeat until song ends
C#--------------------------
G#--------------------------
C#--------------------------

I t might sound the same as yours but I find it easier to play.


relient nelson - 2006-06-17

Yeah, it sounds the same as mine, but it might actually be easier to play. Thanks for the comment!


sac346 - 2006-10-11

You can play every single part of this song in drop D. Why did you make it Drop C#? Good on the note accuracy, bad on the tuning.


Guitar_Chik424 - 2007-01-23

You really don't need to drop it at all.


relient nelson - 2007-02-07

I just tabbed it the way that they play it. I know it's not necessary to drop it to play the song, but my objective was to tab it as close to the way they play it as possible.


cjennings - 2007-12-22

he didn't have to drop the tuning but it is more accurate because hawk nelson plays in drop C# in most of their songs


punkrocka - 2008-04-10

this tab seams perfect but idk bout the intro the standard 1 seams better
