I Will Not Bow
Tabbed by thepook84
Tuning Bb F Bb Eb G C

I made some corrections off the U B band tab. That was the most accurate one. So thanks 
them.  This tab is prob 99% if not 100% correct now.  I saw them play it live and have 
recorded.  But then again feel free to make corrections if you do not think so.

The solo came from the U B band it sounded right but i could not see it good from the video.

I tabbed it for a 1 guitar band except for the solo part. I have the rythm for that.

I am surprised that UG or someone voted for this to be posted. You didn't do much to my tab but make it worse. For instance, the verses are way off, chorus, and outro are off. Tabbing from what you think you see on an acoustic set of "I Will Not Bow" isn't much of tabbing at all.

Why do so many people on this site have to rip other peoples tabs? If you have a suggestion why not post it rather than being an idiot?
