Tabbed by Mark Glass [d/m/y = 7/9/2001]
Artist: Newsboys
Album: Going Public [1994]  copyright by Star Song Communications 
Song: Shine
Copyright: Star Song Communications

Basic Chords: 	Main: F	G	Am	Am?,	F	G,	C 
                          Chorus: C	F	C	F
1)	Common time used 4/4 (4 beats in a bar, quarter note gets the
beat). Played at ? 104 MM. Or at least between andante and moderato
(practise slow first if you’re just beginning guitar!)

2)	All instruments under a heading (ie. “Intro 1”) are played at
the SAME time, except for Fills (which are indicated in the
Beat/Chord tab). The Beat/Chord uses the exact same 4/4 timing, it’s
just for chords.

3)	When képo engaged on a fret, all named values (ie. 7) are
relative to position of képo (ie. if you played a 3 without a képo
engaged, that would be the same as playing a 0 with the képo engaged
on the 3rd fret).

= barlines
---- (or - - - - for the Beat/Chord tab) = the 4 beats in each bar.
= Medium vibrato

So that’s pretty much it. Use the same beat/chording for
the rest of the verses and chorus’. Jam around with the
flange when it’s supporting the 1rst guitar.The bass
follows the clean guitar in ome melodic areas. 

If you have any suggestions, etc., feel free to write me.
I can’t guarantee there are no mistakes, but I think I
caught all of them. ^_^

Please use only for private practise use...if you would
like to use it for other purposes, please ask me permission
first (and that credit is given thereafter). Thanks. ;-)

Have fun and God Bless!
