Song Title: "Forget What You Know (2nd Version)"
By: Derek Webb
More tab available at

  First off: if you are here, you may have come looking for the version 
of this song on the first CD.  It is not here... (but it is not risen).  
Derek and I both agreed, with his vote counting about 100 times more 
than mine, that this 2nd version is far superior; really the only one 
worth knowing.  So the older version is not gonna be available.  Sorry!
  A quick note on my notation in this song:  sometimes you will see the
letter h in front of a chord.  This means strum down, and then hammer on
the chord.  For example, the tab of a hE would be:
--0-----  You will want to really hammer down hard, or else
--0h1---    the sound will be lost.  Also, the higher your
--0h2---    action, the harder this is to do.  If you are
--0h2---    lost, just e-mail me.  Listen to the CD and it 
--0-----    will help.

  Finally, be sure and look at the chord signatures at the bottom,
as some chords are played barred, not open, and will only sound right,
as well as be able to be played smoothly, if these particular forms
are used.  Again, just mail me with any questions.
