Courage by Alien Ant Farm
TAB by Kyurre(kyurre@hotmail.com)
Standard tuning: low to high (E,A,D,G,B,E)

I think this song is played in drop-d on the album and when live, 
but i think it adds a whole new dimension if you play it in standard!
The other problem i have found with the song is despite Terry Corso
being the only guitarist, a lot of the song has 2 guitar parts.
Anyway for anyone who wants to play it in dropped-d, 
just tune your guitar down as usual, and play the d5 chords 
an octave lower at the open position, as shown below
and transpose the rest of the song up a whole step:

E|----|                              E|----|
B|----|                              B|----|
G|----|  PLAY THIS CHORD INSTEAD OF  G|-7--|
D|-0--|                              D|-7--|
A|-0--|                              A|-5--|
D|-0--|                              E|-5--|

Anyway, any questions or complaints mail me, and i will do
the whole song in dropped-d and post it in the future!

And that is it! I haven't put the exact ammounts of chords 
you play in the faster parts, but if you listen to the cd, 
you should be able to suss it out easy!
