Song: If I Had Eyes
Album: Sleep Through the Static
Artist: Jack Johnson

I pre-ordered this album on iTunes and got on the release day and fell in love with this 
So here’s how I play it, I’m pretty sure this is how he plays it. This was done totally 
ear.

=====  Intro  =====

Guitar 1 (Electric)

I’m only gonna write the chords, if you’re a good enough guitarist you can work the 
out yourself.

G--7--/--14--12--9---|
D--7--/--14--12--9---|
A--5--/--12--10--7---|
E--------------------|


Guitar 2 (Acoustic)
Let guitar 1 play through chords once.

End on a D chord.


That’s it, pretty simple like most of his songs. This seems 100% right to me (I think it 
the other tab’s asses) so I hope it helps a lot. Please rate!
