Save Me
Dave Matthews
"Some Devil"
Tab by: Mike McDonald

This is my first tab but I am sure it is acurate. I got it off the MTV2 interview.
It's an acustic version so it sounds a little different than the "Some Devil"
version.  It's a very weird rythm.  I think it's some sort of eigths or something.
He'll hit the bass note and do a rapid studder on the other strings.  Sometimes
muted.  It's funky, you have to play with it but it's a lot of fun once you get
into it.  Riffs 2 and 3 slow to a normal rythm just like the "Some Devil" version.

Standard tuning.
You'll have to listen to pick up the rythm.

[Riff 3]  There's two ways to play this part.  1: the way Dave plays it and 2: the
way people with normal hands, fingers and joints play it.  I'll show both but the
I play it with the second way and it sounds fine.

Dave's way:
e|-----0--------0--------0--------0-|
B|-----0--------0--------0--------0-|
G|-----7--------7--------7--------7-|
D|-----4--------4--------5--------5-|
A|-----0--------0-----3--3-----5--5-|
E|--7--7-----5--5-----5--5-----3--3-|

My way:
e|-----0--------0--------0--------0-|
B|-----0--------0--------0--------0-|
G|-----7--------7--------7--------7-|
D|-----4--------4--------x--------x-|
A|-----0--------0-----3--3-----5--3-|
E|--7--7-----5--5-----5--5-----3--5-|

[Riff 3]
I don't need you to stop the sunshine
I ain't askin' you to make water into wine
I ain't askin' you to fly

[Riff 4](starts on "me" and "you" on the same beat)
I'm just askin' you to save me

[Riff 4]
G         G   F      C
You might try savin' yourself
C             G    C
Why don't you save me
G         G   F      C
You might try savin' yourself
   C
As if the moon could
G      G   F      C
Shine, try savin' yourself
   C
I saw tears down...
G      G   F      C
There, try savin' yourself
   C
Why don't you save me, yeah

It should be G7, however I think he uses this one.
