Tabs with lyrics

Jesus Freak by D.C. Talk
from the album Jesus Freak
Based on tabs by: Gert Hansen and aXman

This is Jesus Freak as I hear it.  I haved based my transcription on the
work of Gert Hansen ([email protected])
who in turn based his work on that of aXman ([email protected]).  These two
people deserve most of the credit for
this work and what I have done is merely an improvement.  I have done my
best to make sure this sounds right and
have put a lot of effort into it but this is my first tab and I'm pretty
inexperienced.
I have included parts for both Accoustic and Electric.  Each section (e.g. -

intro, verse, pre-chorus, chorus etc.)
consists of two parts: accoustic and electric.  Mostly the accoustic is
chords and the electric is tabbed.  I have
labeled all of them anyway though.  I have also included the bass parts that
Gert did, I have not checked these and
they could be wrong.  Also, I have tried to indent it to make it easier to
read, does this help?
If you have any comments, suggestions, or if you find any errors mail me at

Here we go....


Tuning of Guitars:
Just like Gert I have written the tab in standard tuning.  There are two
main reasons for this: firstly Gert
originally wrote his tab in standard tuning and two, because it's much
easier that way.  This song is actually
played with a tuning of A chord diagramFF (that's a half-note up).
Intro:

Acoustic Guitar:
  A chord diagramE MajorE A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramC majorC A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramA augmentedA (Note: play these as bar chords, it sounds much better.)

Next the electric guitar comes in with the main riff (below).


Main riff: Electric Guitar (used in Second half of intro and the chorus)
