Comments about this tab

relient nelson - 2007-01-03

Nice tab Adam the K. It is exactly the way I play it. The only change I would make is I think on the chorus it might just be octaves... Thanks for the tab


Oh!Gravity - 2007-02-06

I think the intro goes a little something like this instead.

D|-0-3---0---0----------------------
A|-----3---0-0----------------------
D|-----------0----------------------

Outside of that, it sounds good.


Jesus_dude - 2007-02-15

Adam K - 2007-02-15

I didnt. I got it off iTunes


Naragrath - 2007-02-18

Perfect. Excellent work, this seems like a hard song to tab.


rokn4godgrl - 2007-03-26

WashburnGuitar9 - 2007-05-03

really this is wrong! I even showed my guitar teacher it and he had an interview with switchfoot and they taught him how to play "dirty second hands" and he said it sounded like it but it was waaaayyyyyyy off! so he gave me the copy of the real version and now it's the 3rd dirty second hands on here (the newest one with the date of 5-01-07 seriously try it out! it's perfect


GUITAR MASTA - 2007-05-22
