Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Song: Second Chance
Band: Shinedown
Album: The Sound of Madness
Tuning: Standard
Tabbed: J. Griff (artificial_inside@yahoo.com)
Comments: I didn't see anyone else put out a tab for this song, so I 
decided to tab it out. Shinedown is one of my most favorite bands and 
their new album is a little different, but it's very awesome. On the
downside, I'm quite disappointed with the "departure" of Jasin Todd. 
That guy can't replaced.

I just laid out the chords for you, if you listen to the song then you can
get the strumming down. I know this might not be 100% accurate, but it's a
decent layout for the song. People keep telling me this song is played with
a capo, but I tried my hand at playing/tabbing it in standard. If there are
mistakes please let me know. Please rate and have fun.

The *'s represent when to strum during the pre-chorus.

nice tab... shinedown is my all time fav. Jasin Todd can be replaced however. I think Perri is the perfect person to do it. i was sad to see him go, but if you have never listened to Silvertide, youll know what i mean. nice tab anyhow!! SHINESDOWN IS THE BEST!
