im learning to play guitar and im upset because i can not find, anywhere on the net, the tabs or music for the lead guitar in We Can Run. Im sure there is someone out there that can play it and it would be great if they would tab it for the world.

Hmmm...I may look into that for ya, I also love the song and wish they'd a-played it more. Which version, from Built To Last or a live version?

I always liked this tune too. Anybody in Raliegh NC when they played and the fans took the grass hill at the far end of Carter Finley Stadium? Same show that during Promised Land there was a power failure. anyway I always remember the energy flowing around at that show and Brent screaming We Can Run as the crowd came through.

ah, the memories

Cool video too that was made for this song..

I would learn it myself by listening but unfortunatley im not good enough. I seriously have searched every where for the tabs and would have the utmost appreciation for the pioneer willing to work the song out.


thanks

They did play it pretty frequently, 88-90. I always liked it but I remember people occaissionally complaining, things like "they just played this song two shows ago" stuff like that. I don't recall the album version being different from the live.

Alright, forced myself into it, only had time for the intro & a lick JG does right after the 2nd verse, leading into the chorus. Let me know what you think and of course any comments/quibbles/complaints/corrections are encouraged (working off the studio version, fwiw):
