This is pretty good, I was surprised to find it. I do not know much about the accuracy so I will not vote. But good job.


Switchfoot_ - 2007-01-17

RB+Gravity - 2007-01-21

relientrocker - 2007-02-20

Hm101 - 2007-03-03

What do the Bs next to the string names mean? And isn't most of this song piano? Other than that, great tab.


lonlaser - 2007-03-05

the b's refer to a flat. also, yes, the song is mostly piano, but you can hear guitar through almost the entire song.

But thats only a small thing so I still think its 99.9% perfect.


Switchfoot_ - 2007-04-22

It looks good, but I thing the chorus shoud be: Eb Ab C A#m.
I haven't tried the rest, though.


Jesus_dude - 2007-08-14

wow this is nearly flawless, but in the intro, i think u accidently put the bass line down, and i like to play it in standard tuning, its practically the same thing as this, but u make the #'s one fret lower. i dont know how many of the notes you play, just play along with the cd.

Db|------------------------------10's-9's----
Ab|7's-9's-10's-5's-9's-10's-7's---------7's- then repeat it.



The-Guy - 2007-09-15

Is there a reason for Eb tuning?
