Subject: TAB: "Forgiveness" by Collective Soul

"Forgiveness" by Collective Soul 
as heard on the album "DISCIPLINED BREAKDOWN"

Words written by Ed Roland and music by Collective Soul

This is the first song I've tabbed for OLGA so please, bear with me. Any comments, questions or corrections would greatly be appreciated. So E-Mail me if you want to!



*****the tone of the instrument which comes in after the intro is so weird-and cool! I can't tell if it's a guitar or an organ.(it said in the liner notes that a guy played organ for one song) In any case I arranged it for guitar.*******


*/*/*/*  NOTE */*/*/*	When **** is next to a chord it means 
				that there are 4 muted 16th note slashes
				using the G-chord Starting on the 4th beat.
				Example:	1	2	3	4 e a u
									/ / / /

INTRO


Em		B		C		G


Guitar 2 (or organ) fades-in on last beat of intro


riff 1

E----------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------------
G-9---11-12-8---11-8-9----------------------------------9--
D--------------------------10-12-----9-10------------------
A---------------------------------10-----------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------


Verse

	Em	   B		     C		  G
 	  In my silence I would love to forget

	Em	     B		    C		   G
	  But restitution hasn't come quite yet

		   D		
	And with one accord I keep moving forth

	  Em				 C5
	I stretch my heart to heal some more


Chorus

	G		          Em	      C5
	 It used to be all I wanted to learn

					G  ****
	 Was wisdom trust and truth

	G			       Em	     C5
	 But now all I really want to learn

				     G
	 Is forgiveness for you


then guitar 2( or organ) comes in again with almost the same thing as riff 1



riff 2
				    ( pitiful attempt at repeat sign )
  play what's in 1st box once, repeat it and then play the second box  

E--------------------------------------------------l-------
B----------------------------------------------.---l-------
G-----9---11-12-8-----11-8-9--------------12-------l---9---
D------------------------------10-12-----------.---l-------
A-----------------------------------------10-------l-------
E--------------------------------------------------l-------

							*(Not sure about octave
							  before repeat)*

Verse

Em		B		     C	 G
  As my seasons change I've now grown to know

Em		B			     C		G
  When one's heart creates, one's soul doesn't owe

	  D
  So I wash away stains of yesterday

	  Em			    C5
  Then tempt my heart with love's display


 
(Play Chorus again)




Guitar interlude (couldn't quite call this a solo!)
It sounds approximately right to me			

								(again, there's that 
								famous repeat sign)
E---------------------------------------------------------------------l
B---13-13----12-12----10-10-8-8-8-8----13-13----12-12----10-10------.-l
G---12-12----12-12----12-12-9-9-9-9----12-12----12-12----12-12---12---l
D----------------------------------------------------------------12-.-l
A---------------------------------------------------------------------l
E---------------------------------------------------------------------l
					*listen for the muted 
					slashes between each chord*


DRUM BEAT	(4 Bars)


...I think so?


		Finger-pick all this part	  	 (Oh,come on! You must 								         get the idea by now!)
E------7--------------------7-------------------7---------------3------l
B------8--------------------8-------------------8---------------3--.---l
G---------------------------------------------------------------4------l
D---------------------------------------------------------------5--.---l
A--------------------------------------3------------------------5------l
E---3----------------3------------------------------------------3------l
						
									  *play last chord 									   very gently*

Chorus w/acoustic guitar	(no break with muting)



Rest of band kicks-in still with chorus (break with muting)


Play chorus chords (no vocals or break w/ muting) 3 times




Well, I did as good as I could...

This truly is a great song. But I was disappointed that, like the other songs on "Disciplined Breakdown", there are no real solos. Ross Childress is an extremely talented guitarist, Why don't they let him solo? It would make the great tunes even better.  

P.S -	Comments, Questions, improvements; welcome and appreciated!

You've got the fretting right. But what is going on here is the use of an Ebow, during the sections where you say it may be an organ!! Buy an incredible Ebow and give it a try here. It is perfect!!
