standard tunning is only used on the live versions. if playing along to the original you'll need to tune every string of your guitar down 2 frets (one tone). this is the case with alot of ben harper songs

ok, its a full step down for sure on normal version from cd, and its not perfect, you screwed up on the intro and you forgot the breaks in between each verse, he plays a little bit from the intro inbetween them, the intro has five measures,here how it go 2 with the open 4th string, (the higher note) then like the slower one with out the open note, then the normal one (with the high note) then once more without the high note, and then in between verses you play different variations of the intro with 4 measures, BUT ALL NOTES ARE CORRECT AND WHAT NOT SO GOOD JOB
