Date: Sun, 7 Jan 1996 20:03:45 -0800 (PST) From: "Scott." Subject: CRD: World I Know by Collective Soul World I know- by Collective Soul off the self-titled album tabbed by: Scott, the guitar freak (scottf@scs.unr.edu) -and- Chad Hanley (chanle51@maine.main.edu) **NOTE: in the verses, use barre chords.. in the chorus, use the open fingerings... that's how it sounded when i heard it.. i'll also give you a more powerful-sounding chorus... ***NOTE: if no symphony is available for your rendition, keyboards work nicely... :) VERSE I D A G A Has our conscience shown? Has the sweet breeze blown? Has all the kindness gone? Hope still lingers on. I drink myself of newfound pity Sitting alone in New York City. And I don't know why. Verse II D A G A Are we listening? Hymns of offering Have we eyes to see That love is gathering? A All the words that I've been reading Have now started the act of bleeding G Into one....Into one. CHORUS D A So I walk upon high G And I step to the edge D To see my world below. A And I laugh at myself C While the tears roll down. G 'Cause it's the world I know. D It's the world I know. VERSE III (look at end of Verse I) I drink myself of newfound pity Sittin alone in New York City. And I don't know why. Don't know why. CHORUS (check out the first chorus) So I walk upon high And I step to the edge to see my world below. And I laugh at myself While the tears roll down. 'Cause it's the world I know. It's the world I know. Yeah, I walk upon high And I step to the edge To see my world below And I laugh at myself While the tears roll down. 'Cause it's the world I know. It's the world I know. at the end when the symphony kicks in, Childress (i think) is arpeggiating a D, and throwing in the 4th sometimes (Dsus4) and the song ends on a Dsus4... (i've only heard the song twice on MTV, and at the time i didn't have my guitar.. i had to get home and play from memory... ) any comments/suggestions/flames/recipes for cookies mail: scott if there is a tab problem... chad if there is a lyric problem...

Well I definitely think this song is overplayed, but I have found a new respect for Collective Soul after I figured out the opening riff to this song. I think it is a great progression. I borrowed the lyrics from World I Know tablulation by Scott the guitar freak and Chad Hanley. I don't think their opening is accurate, it actually starts with a Bm progression like this... s- slide FIG 1 e ---------------------------------------------------------------- B ---------------------------------------------------------------- G -2ss7777777--22222-244--444-666--------------------------------- D -0ss0000000--00000-000--000-000--------------------------------- A -xssxxxxxxx--xxxxx-xxx--xxx-xxx--------------------------------- E -2ss7777777--22222-233--333-555--------------------------------- *** ***-play that part as if you were counting '1,2,3' quickly, where the 2x02 formation gets the 1 count and the 2 and 3 count goes to 3x04. (you can figure out the real timing by listening to the song) FIG 1 Has our conscience show? Has the sweet breeze blown? Has all the kindness gone? Hope still lingers on. (open chords) A I drink myself of newbound pity Sitting alone in New York City G And I don't know why FIG 1 Are we listening? Hymsn of offering Have we eyes to see That love is gathering? (open chords) A All the words that I've been reading Have now started the act of bleeding G Into one... into one (open chords) D A So I walk upon high G And I step to the edge D To see my world below A And I laugh at myself C While the tears roll down G Cos it's the world I know D It's the world I know That's how it goes, just apply the same formations to the rest of the song Justin Kunz Date: Sat, 21 Dec 1996 16:49:15 -0600 (CST) From: Rudolph Subject: TAB: The World I Know by Collective Soul Transcribed by Nate Kohl This is a slightly different version than the others I have seen posted - it is in a different key, but capo should take care of that. It sounds better than plain chords. Intro - E-|--0----0---0---0-- B-|--8----3---5---7-- G-|--0----0---0---0-- D-|--9----4---5---7-- A-|--7----2---3---5-- E-|--0--------------- Play the above with "Has our consience shown...Has the sweet breeze blown..." When you reach "I drink myself of newfound pity..." change to a D - C progression, then jump back into the above pattern for the second verse. Chorus - G - D - C - G "So I walk up on high..." G - D - F - C - G "And I laugh at myself...as the tears roll down.." The ending is G - D - C - D, but is instrumental so it needs more than just chords... And that is it! The only tricky thing is getting the strumming right and adding as many notes to synthesize a string quartet as possible. For the tabbed struming above, it is easiest just to use the same finger positions, and slide down and up the frets. From: Quentin Little Subject: World I know.tab by Collective Soul. World I know------ Collective Soul This is a real pretty tune I figured out sitting on the john and playing my guitar during one those really good bowel movements. 8<------------cut-here---------------------8<---------------------- Okay this is the definite riff that makes this tune so beautiful. I know you guys don't want to hear the transcriber speak so Ill cut it short. I dont see the way I play it posted, so heres what I have: Bm D/F# G e|-----x-x-x-x-x---x-x----x-x---x-x-x-x-x-x-x----x-x---| b|-----0-0-0-0-0---0-0----0-0---0-0-0-0-0-0-0----0-0---| ..and repeat g|----/7-7-7-7-7---7-7----2-2---2-2/4-4-4-4-4----4-4---| til' chorus. d|-----0-0-0-0-0---0-0----0-0---0-0-0-0-0-0-0----0-0---| a|-----x-x-x-x-x---x-x----x-x---x-x-x-x-x-x-x----x-x---| E|----/7-7-7-7-7---7-7----2-2---2-2/3-3-3-3-3----3-3---| Cool.
