Running After You (intro, bridge-chorus)

I'm proud to introduce to you guys the first post from Gerald, who has kindly volunteered to contribute lessons and tabs here:


Running After You is a fairly simple song to play. It's in the key of B. One of Planetshakers' more well known songs.

I'm using chord inversions around the conventional B barre chord for the song's introduction and chorus. And back to open chords for the verses and conventional barre chords for the breakdown.

The chord inversions I used can be used for acoustic guitars playing the song to sound "fuller" and less "choked" as barre chords tend to "choke" up an acoustic guitar's sound when playing a fast song.

Oh and I'm using an acoustic guitar because my electric guitar's in for maintenance. :P

Here are the inversions used in the Intro-Verse video and in the breakdown. I mainly use them for the intro and chorus.

B: -x-2-4-4-2-2-
F#: -2-x-4-4-x-x-
G#m: -4-x-4-4-x-x-
E: -0-x-2-2-0-0-

The chords used during the instrumental before the breakdown. The chords with the asterisk(*) are the transition chords to the breakdown.

G#m: -4-6-6-4-4-4-
F#: -2-4-4-3-2-2-
E: -0-2-2-1-0-0-

E*: -x-7-9-9-7-7-

*Note from Kenny: try B/D#: –x-7-8-9-6-x- too*
B*: -x-2-4-4-2-2-

I have no idea what your tabs are supposed to say, and your video is way too blurry and small for me to see what your playing, sry this post isn't very positive but I haven't learned anything from this video...
