Have fun!!!! Joel PRECIOUS DECLARATION by Collective Soul >From the album: Disciplined Breakdown To start off, if you want to play along with the CD, you have to tune your guitar down half a step. It's not a very difficult song to play. The hardest part is that awesome killer riff that starts off the song and occurs at different places throughout. Well here it is, enjoy! Drums enter then guitar one starts of with the following riff:

Riff 1

|-------------------------|
|-------------------------|
|---------------------X-X-|
|-------0-------------X-X-|
|---0h1---2-0---X-2-2-X-X-|
|-0-----------3-X-0-0-X-X-|
An alternate way of playing this if your distortion tends to get muddy with the open strings ringing is like this:
|-------------------------|
|-------------------------|
|---------------------X-X-|
|---------------------X-X-|
|-------5-------X-2-2-X-X-|
|-0-5h6---7-5-3-X-0-0-X-X-|
Guitar one plays this riff twice on it's own and is then joined by guitar 2 and played twice more. After that the first verse begins. The verses are a combination of a muted G power chord and Riff 1

Verse

G Riff 1 (twice) Hitched a ride to the peaceful side of town G Riff 1 (twice) Then proceeded..............no longer found The prechourus has a couple of clean or slightly distorted guitars plus the lead (which is not tabbed). Open chords sound best here. The C chord is actually a Cadd9, it sounds better with the Cadd9 you can get by with just a regular C Prechourus: GCan't crash Cnow I've been waiting for this GWon't crash Cnow I found some encouragement In the chourus, the guitars become distorted again. More power chords here Chourus: GPrecious declaration reads yours is mine you leave Calone now GPrecious declaration says I believe all hope is dead Cno longer E The only other part different from the above parts is the bridge which is just distorted power chords

Bridge

AOnce I jumped through hoops of fire BHigh and far as you required AI was blind but now I see SalBvation has discovered me D The rest of the song is just repeats of the above sections. Listen to the song, they are to figure out. I've been working on the leads a little. If any one has sugestions for them maybe you could post them or add them to this file.
