Creed - 'Overcome'
From 'Full Circle' Album (2009)
Tuning: Drop B, or B F# B E G# C#
tabbed by jjhand


This Creed song is heavier than their previous hits and has a nice Clean
Guitar Verse riff that is simple. They have a second Guitar player on tour
who doubles the parts shown or plays rhythm chords, so I'll note those
parts. Please rate or comment on Ultimate-Guitar.com. Thanks!

Solo updated 9/10/09

That is wrong Bilawal, it is tuned to Drop-B and the open strings played in the verse riff work well in that tuning. Also you need to play as low as a B5 in the chorus ending. Its easy to say that Creed plays all songs in D tunings but the new stuff is not the same case.

Yeah i guess so, this totally means that we can expect a new and heavier creed...
