me.  I haven't been able to figure out the bridge yet, so any help on that
would be appreciated.  Enjoy :)

Thanks so much for your input for this song. The only thing I see that sounds a bit off is the:

G D Em In the first verse

Try playing a G2/F# Make sure you play the F# as your base note instead of the D

G G2/F# Em

Same for 2nd Verse:

A E F#m sounds a bit off

try A A/G# F#m

hold the A but play a G# base note.

I would love to see what you think??

Hey there, my name is Nick, I just started playing the guitar a few months ago, and have heard this song many times. It is a great song, and Im impressed with your tabs. Is there anyway someone can email me a copy of the tabs, but also with the starting lyrics that match the chords? Im trying to learn to play an acoustical version of this song to play for my family on christmas eve. I would really apreciate any help! Great job again on the tabs!

This is a great song thanks for putting up the tabs. I have been working on it and I think I have figured out the bridge past. I think its A, E, F#, B.....A, E, B, F#... B, F#. Give that a try, if anybody can improve this please do. For once I am gonna try and play a song all the way through. LOL!!
Good Luck and Thanks!

Could someone please tab "Psalm 40"... I can't get it

river_nymph7 - 2006-11-16

Thanks, this was helpful, though I found a few parts that I thought were a bit off. In the chorus I thought it sounded better to drop the E in the first part where it goes A E F#m for "Sir I wanna buy these shoes, for my Mamma please", and just stay in A.
I tried the chords that someone submitted for the bridge but it did not work for me so this is what I figured out:
I knew I had (E) caught a glimpse of (B) Heavens love as he (A)thanked me and ran (E) out...I knew that (A) God had sent that (E) little boy to (F#) remind me what (G#m) Christmas is all (F#) about...
Hope that helps...

Theres only one mistake on that... I knew I had (E) caught a glimpse of (B) Heavens love as he (F#)thanked me and ran (E) out...I knew that (A) God had sent that (E) little boy to (F#) remind me what (G#m) Christmas is all (F#) about...

Just that A should be F#

acousticjammer - 2008-12-08

acousticjammer - 2008-12-08
