Song: Angel's Son THE RIGHT WAY TO PLAY IT!!!
Group: Sevendust
Album: Animosity
Lyrics: Clink Lowery & Lajon Witherspoon
Music: Sevendust

Okay, I have looked at some of the other peoples tablature for this song, and honestly I could
not believe how off they are, even though the authors seem so sure that they're right. Some
people say that the song is played in drop-D tuning with 2 guitars, and other people say that
it's not even detuned. Well, guess what THEY'RE ALL WRONG!! So without further ado, I will show
you how to play the song correctly, and you will sound almost identical to the Clint Lowery on
the Album.

Recommendation: I recommend that you use brand-new earnie-ball strings on an acoustic guitar.
It doesn't matter what type you use, but I prefer to use heavier strings.

Okay, Just to clear something up, to play the song you WILL have to detune your guitar. The song
is played in drop-D flat(b) ex.= Db,Ab,Db,Gb,Bb,Eb. To achieve this you must first detune your
whole guitar down half a step. Then drop the low E-string as you would normally do to put it in
drop-D. The high e string is not played throughtout the whole song so try to avoid hitting it.
And one more thing. From listening to the song, I have heard that the acoustic part is played
by only 1 person, though I guess it can be played by 2 but I'm not sure why anyone would want to.

ummm...hey guess what..? you are wrong. the tuning is wrong.. and its all downhill. you have got the right idea, but the person who tabbed the version 1 of the original angels son has the tab almost perfect and it sounds great for an acoustic. the tuning for your version of the song is C# G# C# F# B C# a note to u...C# is Db ...advice- check version #1.

Lack of formatting. Lack of accuracy. this isn't correct. it sounds kinda close, but definitely not close enough. And the whole letters-instead-of-numbers thing is annoying and goes against any convention I've ever seen
