                         The Economy Of Mercy- Switchfoot
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Song:The Economy Of Mercy
Band: Switchfoot
Album: Learning To Breathe
Tabbed by: timmy3125
Tuning: Standard (EADGBE)

This one of Switchfoot's mellow songs and it's one of my favorites
from the album Learning To Breathe. The guitar uses a lot of 
individual note picking and simple chords. Its a simple song and
here's how I play it. If you like it, go ahead and rate it!

INTRO: Basically, you just make a G chord and hit these individual 
notes. You play this 4x through and there is a little bit of 
variation sometimes with the individual notes but this is most of it.
At the end of the 2nd time you play the extra fill that goes
in between the two divisions of the intro. Then repeat this again.
e|---------|--------------------------------------------------|
B|---------|---3---3-------3-----3----------3-----3-----------|
G|---------|---0----0-------0-----0-0--------2-----0-0--------|
D|------0~-|---0---------0-----0---0------0-----0---0---------|
A|----2----|---2----------------------------------------------|
E|--3------|---3----------------------------------------------|
This is the fill that is played after the 1st time 
through (0:15) and then again just before the verse.
e|--------------|
B|-3p2-2---2-3--|
G|-------4------|
D|--------------|

VERSE 1:

A|-2~---0-----0--2~------------2~---0-----0--2~--------|
E|-3~---0-----0--3-------------3~---0-----0--3---------|

PRECHORUS: "Where will I find you?" For the 1st chord here, make 
sure you do an upstroke on the 1st chord or it will sound wrong! 
The rest of the chords can just be played with normal downstrokes.
e|---3~----2--3-----2--3-----2--3---------|
B|---3~----3--3-----3--3-----3--3---------|
G|---2~----2--0-----2--0-----2--0---------|
D|---0~----0--0-----0--0-----0--0---------|
A|---0~----0--2-----0--2-----0--2---------|
E|---------0--3-----0--3-----0--3---------|

CHORUS: This is played 2 times but there are some extra 
individual notes added in some places. These are the notes 
you use though and you can mess around with them if you want.
e|--5--5------5--5-5------5--7-5---5--5------5--5-5---5--5---5-4-5-7-545-|
