Creed - 'The Song You Sing'

From the Album 'Full Circle'

Tuning - all strings down 3 frets (C# F# B E G# C#)

 

The rhythms are difficult in this song since the acoustic has a eighth note

pattern on low strings and high string melody triplets over 2 beats during

these eighth note patterns, so the rhythm gets complex. I tried to show

differences in rhythm so anyone can play these with some practice.

Please rate or comment.

Why let my worries steal my days
