Hey fellas. This is the tab to Jack Johnson's Angel, written based off
of the MV, not the album version or any live performances.

I'll start off with the chords and the lyrics.

D    x5777x
D/C# x4777x
Bm   x2443x
G    230002
Em   022000
A    002220

In standard tuning.

Intro:
D - D/C# - Bm - G - Em - A

Verse:

(A)          D      D/C#
I've got an angel

                      Bm     G
She doesn't wear any wings

             Em 
She wears a heart that could melt my own

              A
She wears a smile that could make me

       D
Wanna sing


                D       D/C#
She gives me presents

                    Bm      G
With her presence alone

              Em
She gives me everything I could wish for

              A
She gives me kisses on the lips

                 D
Just for coming home


               D      D/C#
She can make angels

                         Bm      G
I've seen it with my own eyes

                  Em
You've got to be careful when you've got good love

             A
'Cause them angels will just keep on

     D
Multiplying



Bridge:

     Em                          A  
But you're so busy changing the world

          Em                               A
Just one smile and you could change all of mine



Outro:

    D             D/C#
We share the same soul

 Bm
Oh oh oh ohh..

    D             D/C#
We share the same soul

 Bm
Oh oh oh ohh..

    D             D/C#
We share the same soul

 Bm
Oh oh oh ohh..

 Em
Oh oh oh ohh..

 G        D
Mmm mm mm mmm..

And here is the Tab.

The pattern is pretty basic,

  strum down

  muted note
  strum down


  muted note
  strum down

The muted chords(x's), can be played by lifting all your fingers slightly off
the strings, yet still applying minor pressure. Then, using your forefinger
and middle finger's nails, strum downwards,resulting in a "clicking" sound.

 The non-barred chords(G, Em, and A), have different ways of muting them.

 One way would be to change the position of one of your fingers to lay
 across the entire six strings, which would mute the chord.

   This can be done in a G by just laying your middle finger flat down
   from it's position and slightly releasing your other finger on the high e string.

   In an Em, you would have to move the middle finger up from it's position to
   lay across the strings, and then return to it's original position.

   In an A, just slightly release your middle finger, ring finger, and pinkie
   from their positions and lay your index across the first fret to mute.

   Alternatively, with your right hand, you can place the bottom part of your hand
   across the strings while you strum with your nails, also creating the muted sound.

Experiment to your own liking.


Note on the lyrics:
   I've placed the key words in the song at or between certain notes, try to
   read the lyrics diagonally. The first letter of the first word in a fragment
   corresponds to the note directly above it. Sorry if it can be confusing.

ok theres a couple things wrong with this...first, your D/E# is actually a D/C#, and there is no such thing as an E#. If you know your notes then F comes after E. The song is also played half a step up from what you have here. another thing, jack rarely uses open chords, so the Em, A and G would be played like this
G Em A
e--3---7---5--
B--3---8---5--
G--4---9---6--
D--5---9---7--
A--5---7---7--
E--3---x---5--

And lastly, the mutes you here arent actually mutes, that sound is the pick hitting the strings.

Thanks for the D/E# to D/C# correction, typos can and will happen.

As to your comment about the half step up, open chords, and the listed correction: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxxBopd2rE0

Even without the video, you can hear that the chords go progressively lower, so a x79987 won't fit it. Also, your A (577655), won't be able to slide into the starting D, which makes it quite useless. Rarely isn't never.

Plus, I don't know if you've ever noticed, but Mr.Johnson doesn't use a pick for this song.
