      Asus-Am         Asus-Am     Fmaj9add6-Fmaj9     F...-Fmaj9

This is played until the G, F riff in the verses.


It's easiest to play if you keep your index finger on fret 1 of the
B string and use your pinky on fret 3 for both the A and the F. Also
play the F chords with your thumb of fret 1 of the E string.

That's it, any questions etc, email me.

WOW! this was great, even though i know how to play it, GREAT JOB!


ccastejon - 2004-08-14

This is one of the very, very "rare" occasions were a tab is actually accurate! great job!


Demon_Hunter - 2004-08-17

i love this song, glad the tab is here.
would be so much easier to read if it had lyrics to it (that way id know what the beat was). but i can understand why yall cant.

hey, how come there arnt any demon hunter tabs?


guitarplayer105 - 2004-09-01


hey this is a great song but one thing i found out is that when you play a Am at the begining you can switch off and on to an Asus so it looks like.....
e------------------------------------------------------
B---1---3---3---1----1---1---3---3---1-----------------
G---2---2---2---2----2---2---2---2---2-----------------
D---2---2---2---2----2---2---2---2---2-----------------
A------------------------------------------------------
E------------------------------------------------------

And thats how that works it sounds great and it gives it more of a realistic sound.
O ya and when you play the F you can also switch it to give it that same sound all you have to do is take your pinky (4) off and put it on the third fret on the second string. Its the same place you put you pinky on the Asus chord. Do this in the same rythme as the Am. This will sound great once you get it figured out.

Have Fun!

hey ive been looking at these tabs sorta got frusterated so i decided to do it myself THIS IS THE RYT WAY FRUM UNIFY CD AND REALLY IT IS!

Verse 1:
Guitar comes in on (the second) "true":
e ----3-----3---------3-----3-------------------------------------
B --3-----3-----3---3-----3-----3-----6-----5-----3-----5-----6---
G 0---------------0-----------------5--------5-----5-----5-----5-----
D --------------------------------3-------------------------------

Then he strums this
e ---------------------------------0-----------------------------
B ----------------------------1------1--1------------------------
G ----5----------4------------2---------2------------------------
D ----x----------x------------2---------3-----------------------
A ----3----------2---------------------------------------------
E ------------------------------------------------------

markthepark1 - 2008-06-25

awesome tab


do you no the bit for the holy is the lord solo at the end on the live version


Ilovedelirious? - 2009-01-04

I believe it is:
e--------------------------------------------------------------------------
b----------8---------8---------------8---------8---------------6---------5-
g------7---------7---------7-----7---------7---------7-----5---------5-----
d-5---------5---------5-----5---------5---------5-----3---------3----------
e--------------------------------------------------------------------------

e-------------------- (p)= power chord
b---------3---------5
g-----5---------5---- then it goes into the (p)C, then (p) B, then Am, but
d3---------3--------- with the Am on the first stroke you strum once as the
e-------------------- normal Am, but then on the second stroke you take your
finger off the B string for one strum/stroke ( i dont
know why im suddenly calling them strokes, haha) then
finally, a normal Am again for the third one. Then
(p) F.

Then, in the chorus, as an alternative (useful if you have two guitars wanting to play lead or something), you can play this chord for most of it.

e------------- yeah, just play around with this chord, in some cases,
b-----------13 instead of 10-12-13 you can play 12-12-12 and yeah. basica
g------12----- -lly thats what i have to offer, and i hope this helps
d-10---------- somebody :)
a-------------
e------------- God bless
