Sooner Or Later Tab

   
Sooner or Later - Breaking Benjamin
Tuning:  CGCFAD (down 1 step)
Acoustic Tuning: CFBbEbGC (down 2 steps)  
Now Fully correct!!!

Guitar 1 - Fink
Guitar 2 - Burnley
Guitar 3 - Unknown (only used in INTRO)

Alright, this tab would have been for real nearly IMPOSSIBLE to figure out without the
book!!  The lead guitar was tab to try to tab even with the freakin' book!!! Based Hal
and Leonard's tab book, this song really has 5 guitars in the recorded version but I'm
going to minimize it to 2 guitars EXCEPT for the INTRO!!! Some things have been changed
to fit my tastes for the song!  

This song just hit #1 on the Rock Radio Charts!!!!  A very popular song from a rising
band.  Check out their AOL videos!!!!

Any more BB requests, just post in the comments section!  Please rate!
