Thanks!
Do you use delay throughout the song?

Largely spot on. Only thing I would add to the tabs would be that playing it on the 6th fret on the D is a little to dull as compared to the recording, instead play it on the 1st fret on the G. For the chords in the chorus, the rhythm guitar needs to play what I call Rush chords. The A, E, B all have the high B and E strings played open, the C#m has the high E string played open. I've tabbed out the entire rhythm part if anyone would like it. My email is lookitsrich@gmail.com.

Hey. This sounds great. I've been using your blog to learn a lot about the electric guitar. I was wondering what you used to get the sound for the verse and chorus?

Thanks!
Danny

For the harmonics I'm pretty sure it's capo 1 and then as I play in this video:

Wow. This is such a beautiful song. Hillsong is probably my favorite worship band. I wish I had your guitar skills. Do you own an acoustic guitar strap?

Just discovered this blog, and I really like the format--quick vid plus tabs. Fantastic!

And I also just saw Darlene Zschech and Hillsong last night at Bethel World Outreach Center here in Brentwood, Tennessee--amazing!! What a great celebration of love and worship!

I'm going to write about this blog over at my site on Nashville Guitar Lessons.

Thanks for the fantastic work you're doing!

You have a lot better tone now. Great Job. The Video quality is awesome man. Do you take donations for your site. I'd be happy to contribute.

I have a question here : do you go off learning these songs out of tabs or do you learn them using scales and recognizing the song by your selves.
I kind of get confused when I travel out of scales.. :)

Hey guys, just wanted to say that I love this site... it is extrememly helpful and a blessing; may God continue to bless you. Just wanted to post something that might help for the Harmonic part of this song. If you capo your guitar on the first fret (as played on the video) you can play the natural harmonics on the 8th and 6th fret. The tabs looks as follows (only tabbing the botton 3 strings)

e------------------------------8-
B--8-8-8--------8-8-8------------
G--------6-6-6--------6-6--8-8---
