Creed - "Time"
From the Album "Full Circle"
Tuning - Open Em - BEBEGB
         12 string Acoustic, 6Str Elec 
Tabbed by jjhand for ultimate-guitar.com


** Note that the 12 string used for most of the song is tuned where 
the lowest four strings are paired with a string set an octave 
higher. The high G and B strings should be doubled (not octave higher), 
which you can hear on some of the ringing notes during the main riff.

Play all acoustic parts with fingers (not easy, but practice hard!)
Please rate or comment.

 the difference that makes us so different.
 We've said everything, our words only betreat us
 nothing is left, nothing was left unsaid"
