More songs by Caedmon's Call


This transcription is not my own work; it was contributed to the site by another Caedmon's Call fan.

I haven't had a lot of time for guitar recently, but this is one of several tabs that various nice people have sent me. I haven't reviewed or editted them, so no guarantees about accuracy, but I'm sure people will find them useful. If you have transcribed a Caedmon's Call or derek webb song that's not already on this site, please feel free to send it in to be shared here.

Okay, so I'm new to the whole tabbing thing, but I figured out
this beautiful song (or an approximate tabbing of it) and there
wasn't one here yet.
It's probably not exact, but it'll work.
My e-mail addy is lotrpms@yahoo.com, if you've got any corrections or
anything. Those are certainly welcome! :D

There are some strange chords that I don't know the names for, so
I'll call them D2a and D2b. Basically, what you do is you take the
D2 chord up to the 4th fret, then on up to the 6th, muting all the
strings except for the top three.
The fretting is capo-relative. The capo's on the 2nd fret, so you're
actually taking the D2 up to the 6th and 8th frets.

Capo 2nd Fret

1st verse:
A2  D2
A2  D2
A2  D2
A2  D2

Chorus:
D2  C#m  E  A2
D2  D2a  D2b
Bsus  D2

And the next two verses go pretty much the same as the first verse.

Have fun, and enjoy the song!

Chords:
A2:   0-0-2-2-0-0
D2:   x-0-0-2-3-0

I think these chords are more accurate with the CD.
In the Instrumental break, the chords switch back and forth from F#m to Bm to D2, so
those are those.
I hope this works out.  I havenít submitted a tab for this place yet.

I was going to just submit some corrections to the other 2 tabs done already
for this song, but I thought it might just be easier to redo the whole thing.

This song is in standard tuning, capo 2 and played in A.

Intro
A2 D2

Verse
A2 D2
F# E
A2 D2
F# A2 (the electric guitar actually walks this up: F#-G#-A)

Chorus
D2  A/C#  E/B  A2
D2  A/C#  E/B  D2 (Strum just once)

Verse 2
A2 D2
F# A2

Chorus - Instrumental A2 D2 F# E
(by the way, if anyone tabs out the solo there, Please
e-mail it to me. I love the sound of the tribal percussion)

After the instrumental, the whole thing is just trasposed a whole step up
(i.e. A=B, D=E, etc.)

The Chords I use:
A2  x02200
D2  xx0230
F#  202200
A/C# x42200
E/B x22100
These are probably not the exact chords that CC uses, but they work. Also,
this is a very bassy song, so try to stay off the high e-string as much as
possible. It makes the song more rich to keep it as low as you can.
