Crown of Thorns
For Today

Transcribed by Colton Wood

I basically tried to put this together as fast as humanly possible, so don’t 
expect everything to look all fancy like usual. But of course, I promise that 
the notation is spot on! FYI, For Today, doesn't use a Verse, Chorus, 
structure, but I will use Verse, Chorus, etc. to label the sections, for the 
readers sake.

You can also use this cover as a reference: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytqM88nYihI

Tuning: Drop B (B, F#, B, E, G#, C#)
3/4 times, about 110 BPM.

Intro:

 Lead 1
|-------------------------------------------|

The above riff repeats as the rhythm plays:

|--------------------------------|

|-0-----0-----8-----7------7-7-7-| x2
                           . . .

We Crown Him: The rhythm’s pretty straight forward.
