Epiphany

Performed By: Staind
From the Album: "Break The Cycle"
Lyrics & Music Written By: Aaron Lewis



Notes: 

 - With four versions of this song in the archive,
   you would think that at least one of them would
   be completely correct. None of them are. 
   Some are extemely close, but none are 100%.

 - I decided to have a go at this incredibly simple,
   yet beautiful song off of "Break the Cycle". 
   I have added everything that I possibly could have
   to make this tab 100%. With a song this simple,
   I fail to see why other people did not bother to
   put some time and effort into their tabbing of this.

 - As stated by users in the comments of other tabs
   of this song, the tuning IS what I have tabbed out.
   This is because during the strumming of each "chord",
   the b and high e strings are played open. Why others
   failed to notice this is beyond me; as I noticed it
   the first time I listened to the song.

 - I appreciate any comments on this. However,
   if you're going to attempt to argue with me
   "I have the tab book and this is wrong", etc., 
   don't even bother commenting. You're just wasting
   my time, as well as your own.

 - Finally, some familiarity with this song is
   obviously necessary. 

   ENJOY!

"Sounds 100%", "is 100%", same thing. :P Perhaps I should've made it more clear then, huh? Anyway, I suppose I can still gloat and say I have the best tab of this on the site. Thanks for voting, mate!
