Shine  Collective Soul

 
 -------

By Ed Roland
As performed by Collective Soul
Transcribed by John S. Jacob
Paul D
Capo on the 4th fret (Fret numbers are counted from the capo)
This song sounds kinda retro to me. I don't usually like that sound,
but I really like it in this song. Unfortunately, I don't have a
recording of "Shine", so the music is what I got off the radio the few
times I've heard it on Live 105. I haven't sequenced the entire song,
but all the riffs are here. The lyrics have been generously provided
by Paul D. Thanks! -- John

Hi there, Im one of those naughty people that tape stuff off the radio
I taped this and tried to work it out ( SHINE - by Collective Soul that is)
and this is what I came up with:
I think it is tuned down a semitone, then the sixth string tuned
down a further 2 semitones
intro and verses : (this is from memory)
 
 Eb------------------------------ -------------------------------
 Bb---5h7----7----5-------------- --5h7---7---/10-----------7----
 Gb------------------7--7-7-5-7-- -----------------7-7-7-9-------
 Db------------------------------ -------------------------------

 Ab--10------10----10----10---10- -12--------12-----12-----12----12-
 Db--10--8-8-10--8-10--8-10-8-10- -12--10-10-12--10-12--10-12-10-12-

then sometimes that heavy part:
 
 Eb---------------------------------------------------------
 Bb---------------------------------------------------------
 Gb--------------------------------------------------------o
 Db--0--0-0-3-0-3-0-3-0-5---------0--0-0-3-0-3-0-3-0-5--6--o

 Db--0--0-0-3-0-3-0-3-0-5---------0--0-0-3-0-3-0-3-0-5--6--- 

yeah!
chorus:

 Db-5-----------5------------------0------------------------
 Ab-3-----------5------------------0------------------------
 Db-------------5------------------0------------------------

woah... heaven let yor light shine down
there you go, the first two bars I think are right but
there seems to be something else playing aswell like another
string. The second two bars are my least confident, Ill have to
work on them but i thought i would enclude them anyway. the rest I think
is pretty right and the solo has roughly the same chords as the chorus
but i dont
remeber in what order. If anyone has a more correct version, I would
love to see it
anyway, seeya
