Creed - 'Sister'
From "My Own Prison" Album
tabbed by jjhand
Tuning- DADGBe, on 2 guitars


Thanks to Elrockero56 for the original version of this tab. I tried to
fix up the rhythms and add a couple things that were left out. Please
rate or comment.

During this intro, a second distorted guitar plays a 4th string D at 0:07
and continues to get feedback and harmonics during the melody above. I
think that it is easiest to get these sounds with a tremelo bar.
