Comments about this tab

trmcello24 - 2007-01-05

wow adam, this is one of the best tabs ive seen from you. gosh this such a amazing song.


tl_guitarnut - 2007-01-05

Does anyone know where I can listen to this song for free.


Adam K - 2007-01-05

30 second clip on iTunes


underoathrocks - 2007-01-11

You can go to Purevolume.com, I think they have it up.


tl_guitarnut - 2007-01-11

nope, I just checked, not yet I guess.


tl_guitarnut - 2007-01-18

Yes! Its on Purevolume!


skilletrocksjo - 2007-01-23

also on myspace.......if you have a myspace account


underoathrocks - 2007-02-11

MySpace is a huge temptation to get us christians to sin, there is so much crap on myspace, everywhere you look there's a bad word or a pornographic picture or just anything. Purevolume isn't as bad because there aren't as many people on it and it's a little less known, the only problem is that everybody has a myspace so you may not see as many bands on Purevolume.


tl_guitarnut - 2007-02-12

Tell me how this relates to this band or this song please?


Adam K - 2007-02-15

okay?


sac346 - 2007-02-15

Adam K - 2007-02-24

t_dub224 - 2007-03-21

wolfgal525 - 2007-03-29

yeah so what do the x's mean? I'm new at trying to read this stuff.....only got my guitar at Christams 06


gnarlynarwhal1 - 2007-04-12

If you just got your guitar, this isn't the song for you:D I don't know if I can play it and I've been playing a long while. The x's mean you mute that note.
