Instrumental: I usually play this with a Wah, and a few ghost notes here and there. Just cause I can, and cause I like it that way ;)

Riff continues through the Bridge too, but if you have more than one guitarist, then make him chug the chords out.
F Ab Bbe|-------------------------------------|B|-------------------------------------|G|-------------------------------------|D|--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--6-6-6-6--8-8-8-8--|A|--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--6-6-6-6--8-8-8-8--|E|--1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--4-4-4-4--6-6-6-6--| . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
After the bridge theres some form of interlude. It follows the same chords, F, Ab, Bb. Basic strumming, simple stuff. If you have the ability to shred out some cool solo, then go for it. If not, then play the F, Ab and B in octaves, but up the octave as shown below.
F Ab Bbe|--------------|B|--6-\-9-\-11--|G|--x-\-x-\-x---|D|--3-\-6-\-8---|A|--------------|E|--------------|
Or F Ab Bbe|--------------|B|--------------|G|--------------|D|--3-\-6-\-8---|A|--x-\-x-\-x---|E|--1-\-4-\-6---|
This is a genuinely easy song. Don’t worry if you can’t get the timings perfect, Just practice along with the mp3. You can either buy it from or iTunes, or you can hop onto youtube and watch the video. Also, listen to the track for arrangements and stuff like that, but feel free to create your own arrangement to fit your needs. Also, if you want some pretty legit sounding tracks, then go to this website: The tracks aren't free. Cheapest is about US $10, but it's well worth the cost. You get a track with no vocals, but you get some mint sounding synths, some phat guitars, possibly drums depending on what you buy, as well as click tracks and all that cool stuff to help you not only learn the song, but also play it in church depending on your setup in terms of running trax/in ear monitors. A lot of work goes into making these, and personally I think that 10 bucks is pretty cheap! So support my friend and I as we keep making trax for people :D It's fun, but very time consuming. Email me at if you have any questions about either guitar in general, or tabs. Or just about anything really. I'm open to suggestions, questions, and most requests depending on my schedule. Cheers, Christian Heinze-Rowney
