The Streetlight Diaries
Search the City
A Fire So Big Heaven Can See It
Tabbed by: Cody
Email: cjmeserole@yahoo.com

Tuning: drop C# (Db, if you prefer)  tune all your strings down a half step, and your 
E string down 1 1/2 steps to a C#.
i won't change all the letters on the side, so just remember the tuning and you'll be fine.

i learned the entire lead part from silas_001's tab, but i'm submitting a tab with this song
in the correct tuning and with the backing guitar parts as well.
his tab is Ver. 1, and it totally rocks, so i give him full credit for a good majority 
this tab.
 i'm just here to perfect it =)

the tab is written with Gtr. 1 on top and Gtr. 2 on bottom.  there are minor parts i 
know,
 so those are just blank, obviously.
