Dave Matthews, Where are you Going -- Acoustic
As Tabbed By Christopher Owens
clo__@hotmail.com

In many of Dave Matthew's songs, the guitar seems to play one
part throughout the song, and the melody is provided by the
bass. This can be a bummer if you're performing solo, esp.
on an acoustic.

First, TUNE your 1st string (high e) down to an a -- I find it
easiest to tune to a harmonic on the 12th fret of the 5th (A chord diagramAA)
string. This gets rid of having to deal with muting the e string
through the entire song -- it provides a nice, mellow sound.

So your tuning is:
   a|
   B| chord diagramB|B|
   G| chord diagramG|G|
   D| chord diagramD|D|
   A| chord diagramA|A|
   E| chord diagramE|E|

(The intro hammers on the G chord diagramGG string --0h2---)
Pick the bass note DISTINCTLY, then just strum them in.

SAX SOLO

If you're playing this solo / acoustic, you probably won't
want to put this in here, but here's what I can catch: It's
a descending F# chord diagramF#F# major scale, I think. That translates to:

e|:-8s14s12-12-11-9 something something-2s3-2s3,-2-3-5-7-8
Repeat, end with                                 2-3-5-7-8-10

But that's for a high e-string, which we don't have in this
tuning. Try it on your B chord diagramBB-string.

Enjoy!
