Guitar tabs with lyrics

Tabbed by: Jason James


Tuning: DADGBE capo 5th fret

The real trick to playing this (and a lot of John’s song from this period)is to slap the
guitar percussively on the 2nd and 4th beat without disturbing the notes that are ringing
out and knowing when to use the slap to stop the notes dead. It takes practice but once
its mastered, the feel of john’s style falls into place and becomes more of a habit than
an exercise. It’s also worth noting that the subtlety is of this song is in the studio
mixing, in reality John plays each note, especially hammer-on and pull-offs very clearly
with force.
