***COMMON CREED*** By Wes King

A couple of things before we start here. One, This is not a note for note
transcription of the tune. This is the way I heard it and adapted it. I did
not tab every strum,because most people can get that from the recording.
This is my version, but I think it's a good one, and pretty close in some
areas. If you play this along with the tape it will sound "right". At times
the mix was such that I couldn't quite hear the guitar, so necessity
dictated that I "fill in the blanks". CAPO AT THE 4TH FRET.  Don't try to
play this as written without a capo. :) Enjoy...I also did not try to name
every last chord, as I am too lazy to, if you really want to know 'em, e
mail me, and I'll  write you with them.

The 4 is the capo. Have fun.

This is the way I figured out the main riff  Riff A, at the beginning.  The
first chord shape is a D, but being as this is capoed, we are now playing a
F# major chord. Use your pinky at the hammeron.

--6------6----6--6-6----6-----  chords he's using as he plays

Optional: The second guitar plays this at the same time at the end of the


As he sings "It's a call to love.." I played it like this. The third chord
is F#major with an added G# or a F#add2 chord. I don't know if he used this
but playing with the recording, it worked, and playing it solo worked for
me too.

--7------------7-----7----7----   Rhy Fig A

Now I can almost promise you I hear a second guitar low in the mix at the
same time, that or keyboard. Whatever the case, I hear it going from a
F#major to F#major7. You can pick and choose what you like best, or
alternate 'em, it works regardless. If you can hear what I'm talking about
on the recording, listen for how its played.

F#maj          F#maj7


Bmaj7 is an open Gmajor 7th shape except played with a capo at 4th fret. C#
is like a open A shape. B is open G shape. G#m is open Em shape. C#7 is
open A7 shape.
D#m7 is played like this:
