                         STOP THIS TRAIN - John Mayer

Tuning: standard

I love this song, if you get the pick/slap pattern right it sounds like the
chugging of a train. for ease of play the slap can be left out but i think
a part of the song is lost. anyway to master the technique check out noah
needleman's tutorial on youtube. have fun.
