Hey, this is a good tab. One thing you might add is the timing, it makes the chords alot better for people learning the song.

Great tab only thing is i like the 3-4 lead into but that would be for a minor song i think petra uses 3-5 which would be a major interval but great job on everything else God Bless!

Soundmankev - you are wrong. Sorry. I saw Bob Hartman in the fall during the fairwell tour. And being a guitar player I watched him very closly to see exactly how he played songs (I was in the front and the concert was in a small church so I was only about 6 feet away from Bob the whole concert) anyways I know the 3-4 makes it a minor, but that is what he does. Also, incase anyone cares, the only effects pedal that bob used on the fairwell tour/cd is the Boss GT-6 that was it.

oh ya... I have a correction for this part:
Lead guitar comes in
G5 C2 D C2
I dont know how many times you strum it just listen to it, but you play it like a D chord at the 7th fret, then ad your pinky for the 8 and move your pinky to the 10 and back to the 8. You can argue if you want, but thats how bob did it. :) God bless.
