This is my acoustic version of "Something's Missing" by John Mayer. This acoustic
is faithful to the original album version. However, I did make some changes. Such as omitting
slight palm-muted riff played during the first 2 verses and replaced it with 
chords to be strummed. I also replaced the sick riff John plays during the chorus over
over with chords that are very fitting. I know music theory, so all chord names are 
Enjoy! This song rings perfectly on acoustic!

NOTE: For all verse, chorus, and bridge, I tabbed the chord shapes w/out timing or
pattern. It is crucial you listen to the original album version for timing, etc.
