Epiphany
Performed By: Staind From the Album: "Break The Cycle" Lyrics & Music Written By: Aaron Lewis
Notes:
- With four versions of this song in the archive, you would think that at least one of them would be completely correct. None of them are. Some are extemely close, but none are 100%.
- I decided to have a go at this incredibly simple, yet beautiful song off of "Break the Cycle". I have added everything that I possibly could have to make this tab 100%. With a song this simple, I fail to see why other people did not bother to put some time and effort into their tabbing of this.
- As stated by users in the comments of other tabs of this song, the tuning IS what I have tabbed out. This is because during the strumming of each "chord", the b and high e strings are played open. Why others failed to notice this is beyond me; as I noticed it the first time I listened to the song.
- I appreciate any comments on this. However, if you're going to attempt to argue with me "I have the tab book and this is wrong", etc., don't even bother commenting. You're just wasting my time, as well as your own.
- Finally, some familiarity with this song is obviously necessary.
ENJOY!
