Corb Lund Band – The Truth Comes Out chords
A co-worker of mine introduced me to this song. Naturally, I went on UG to find a good tab on it. When I noticed that the other tabs were wrong, I decided to make my own. And this is exactly what he plays. This is from seeing his live performances and even a very short tutorial he did with QTV. If you are having any problems with the dynamics or the strumming of the song, please listen closely and play along. And, when you've made your final judgement, please rate and leave a comment.
