Song: Use Me

Tab version

Okay before I start know this. I am NOT perfect. This is the best I can 
do to figure this out. Basically Guitar 1 is the left hand and Guitar 2 
is the right on piano. I have tried to arrange it so that it is possible 
to play (though it will take practice) I have figured  out and can play 
both parts and I have only played for 1 1/2 - 2 years. Obviously you 
would need to embellish on this to match the piano perfectly but that 
would also be about impossible! 

Guitar 1 and 2 will play the same part unless noted

   C              Dm       Dm  D2 
This is that weird sounding part on top of chords can be played by 
finger picking the A string with your thumb and walking over the G and B 
string with your pointer and middle fingers. It is a dotted 32nd note 
and a sixteenth for the B to G string timing.

Verse: Guitar 1  References in **'s are 2nd guitar    1st/2nd   when 
shown like this.
 
C   C  Dm         Dm D2     Bb        Bb F   *riff 3*
Son of God come in,     and take away my sin
C    C  Dm    Dm D2       Bb    Bb   Bb Riff F/*Fsus*
Draw me closer    so I'm  never away from you
C    C C9 Dm      Riff Dm/*Dm D2*     Bb       Bb      F   *riff 3*
Take my   life oh God                let your will be done
     C    C C9 Dm   Dm D2    Bb      Bb          riff F/*Fsus* - strum 
with cresendo  
As I walk this earth       I want to be like your Son

Chorus:

Guitar 2
e-------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------10-11-11-10--------------|
G---------10-10-10-10-12--------------------------|
D---------10--------------------------------------|
A---------8---------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------|
    C     F              Bb       F/A    <--(guitar 1)
Use me

(both)
    C     Fsus F4      Bb    Bb   Bb   F 
Use me          so I'm never away from you

(repeat)

Repeat verse cut all riffs. Riff F and Dm is now F and Dm
At "Draw me closer..."  guitar 2 does riff 2

on Chorus 2nd time all individual second guitar parts are gone but 
listen to CD and these parts are played at their respective times by 
second guitar. Listen closely and you'll here them. I put them 
exclusively cause they sound very good. all the other improvisions are 
too much to figure out.

at 2:05  
e---12-13-12-13-12-8--|

2:09 - 2:13 
e--12-13-13-13-13-13-12-10----------------------|
B--13-13-13-------------------------------------|
this has a little lead in that goes something like
e--6-8-10-13-12-|

Bridge:
C  F/A  (arpeggios sound nice)
Ohhh
C              Bb           F            C     <--(F/A last time into 
chorus)
Lord I give my life to you, I won't turn back
(these chords are played in triad arpeggios. Pick the 1 3 5 of the chord
in that order.

Chorus

bridge in reverse order. Instead of the 1 3 5 pattern just do random 
arpeggios.

That's it!!! When the 2nd guitar is left for awhile let him or her play 
around with the chords and finger picking to simulate the improvisions 
of the piano. If a Dm doesn't sound right somewhere try F/A and vice 
versa.  

Have fun and God bless
Nick
