Hello UG Community!

Today, I decided I was going to learn the song "River Below" by one of my favourite bands, "Billy Talent", and so I went looking for some tabs.

I found a couple of versions, but none of them seemed right!

They sounded right, but it felt weird playing it.

So I decided to take the time and look at all of the tabs, and I learned how to play "River Below" in many different ways.

Once I did that, I opened up Notepad and began typing up the way that felt most comfortable and natural to me.

In other words, I combined some of the tabs together, and eared some chords, and I came up with this tab.

I think this is the easiest and best way to play this song!

The only thing that sounds a bit weird is the very first notes, the "0-0-3-0-7-0-3-0", but I'm sure some kind UGer will post a better way to do it.

Here it is! ENJOY!

(If enough people like it I will post it on the main site.)

-Disclaimer-
I give absolute 100% credit to the kind beings who created the tabs! I DID NOT WRITE ALL OF THESE OUT MYSELF! I JUST COMBINED THEM AND CHANGED A CHORD HERE AND THERE IS ALL!
