Hey, I wasn't sure whether to post this here or in the tab talk area, but I figured if anyone would know a good way to accomplish this, they would be here. So I need to arrange or combine the two guitar parts for the song "All Around Me" by Flyleaf for a solo acoustic guitar in order to support my singer in a competition. I'm having difficulties finding the music for the Flyleaf acoustic version (at least good accurate ones) so I was wondering if somebody could help arrange it or arrange it for me? Basically something combining the rhythm part with the little lead fills that make the song interesting or at least something that would sound good as a solo acoustic guitar and solo singer. Thanks in advance!

Nick

gosh, ive never heard that song until now. it sounds like a great song for open tuning, although i personally wouldnt know where to begin...
theyre also using a 12 string, and i loveee 12 strings

its also three guitar parts not two, and i think you should just get the little rain maker shaker thing and say screw the guitar

i can throw a few ideas out.. not very good at making these things line up lol
intro and a few other parts:

|-------0----------0---------0-0------------|
|-------0----------0---------0-0------------|
|-------6----------6---------7-6-------------|
|-------7----------6------7--7-7------------|
|----7--7------7--7----5----5-5-------------|
|-5-----5---4-----4--------------------------|

-----------

then the "im still alive" part
|--0-0-0-0---0--0--0--0---|
|--0-0-0-0---0--0--0--0---|
|--9-9-9-9--11-11-11-11--| repeats a few times and ends strumming some on (below)
|--9-9-9-9---9--9--9--9---|
|--7-7-7-7---7--7--7--7---|
|--0-0-0-0---0--0--0--0---|

|--0--
|--0--
|--9--
|--7--
|--5--
|--0--


"i can feel you all around me.."
(strum each chord 4 times)
---0---0----0---0---------------0---0---0----0----0-------
---0---0----0---0---------------0---0---0----0----0--- (play that last one once and let ring)
--14--13--11--9-----X3------6---7---9---13---14--------
-----------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------


i think the main idea to getting a full sound in this song is pretty much always having the high e and b strings open and ringing, it ties it all together

Would you rather someone make a new acoustic arrangement of the song or transcribe Flyleaf's acoustic version?

Also, when is the competition?
:E

Sorry I forgot about my own thread haha. In response to the new arrangement or the transcribed version, either works, I'm open to anything. And the competition is in like 2 weeks now. Thanks
