Only Hope

Only HopeBeen having lots of problems with blogger.com lately. Couldn't post anything due to some error message that keeps coming up. However, I apparently changed the www to www2 (read off some help forum) and now it's working fine. Just that I can't edit my page template still... zzz

Anyway, here's the next song recently performed by my brother and I in response to a YouTube user who requested for it. Here's Only Hope, by Switchfoot (Great band, go hear their other CDs to like New Way To Be Human, Learning To Breathe). It was made famous by Jonathan Foreman and Mandy Moore in the movie, A Walk To Remember.

The tabs below reflect both what my brother and I are playing. Enjoy! :P

The instrumental version can be heard here :)

I'm playing the part for guitar 1 and it sounds wrong.. the beginning slide is right, but the 7-9-7 doesn't sound like it does in the video. Maybe i'm wrong?

Graham Choo said...

Hey Chris, thanks for informing me about that. I made an error in the tabbing. Tend to do that when I'm not that careful in my tabbing... too many numbers! Haha. Will rectify it. Thanks!

Chris said...

Thanks! Looking forward to the new tabs, it really sounds great!
