Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


What Drives The Weak    Shadows Fall



I know everyone out there who has the new SF album NEEDS to know how to
play every song on it.  Well, heres a start.  I just figured this out not
too long ago.  I have everything but the solo's obvioulsy because Jon is god,
and the chorus, which isnt much in the guitar department.  This tab should
be 100% correct.  If its not, leave sugestions on parts that are wrong please!
