SEVEN- DAVE MATTHEWS BAND
Off the new album: Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King

Drop D tuning- DADGBE


I'm not even going to bother telling you the rhythmn...because it's quite odd. I advise
listen to this song and know it before you start to learn it. If you know the song,
realize how he plays this. And a bit of advice: when you're playing this, at parts 
want to pause, but he never really pauses during the song...which is why the rhythm is so weird.


Intro:

e------------------|
B------------------|     (REPEAT 4 TIMES)
G------------------|
D------5---8-7---5-|
A--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|
D--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|


Verse:

e----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D------5p0------------5p0------------5p0-------------5p0---------------|
A----------2-3-5----------2-3-5----------2-3-5-----------2-3-5---------|
D--5-5------------5-5------------3-3------------3-3--------------------|


e----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D------5p0-------------5p0-------------5p0-------------5p0-------------|
A----------2-3-5-----------2-3-5------------2-3-5----------5-2-3-5-----|
D--2-2--------------2-2-------------5-5-------------5-5----------------|

REPEAT 4 times


Then:

e----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5----------------------------------|
A--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5----------------------------------|
D--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5----------------------------------|


Then:

e----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G---------------4-5-----------------4h5p4------------------------------|
D------5p0----------------5p0------------------------------------------|
A----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D--5-5------3-3------2-2--------3-3------------------------------------|


Then:

e----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D------5p0------------5p0------------5p0-------------5p0---------------|
A----------2-3-5----------2-3-5----------2-3-5-----------2-3-5---------|
D--5-5------------5-5------------3-3------------3-3--------------------|


e----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D------5p0-------------5p0-------------5p0-------------5p0-------------|
A----------2-3-5-----------2-3-5------------2-3-5----------5-2-3-5-----|
D--2-2--------------2-2-------------5-5-------------5-5----------------|

REPEAT 2 times

Then:

e------------------|
B------------------|     (REPEAT 4 TIMES)
G------------------|
D------5---8-7---5-|
A--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|
D--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|


Then:

e----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D------5p0------------5p0------------5p0-------------5p0---------------|
A----------2-3-5----------2-3-5----------2-3-5-----------2-3-5---------|
D--5-5------------5-5------------3-3------------3-3--------------------|


e----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D------5p0-------------5p0-------------5p0-------------5p0-------------|
A----------2-3-5-----------2-3-5------------2-3-5----------5-2-3-5-----|
D--2-2--------------2-2-------------5-5-------------5-5----------------|

Even though it doesn’t sound like it at first…Dave is playing this.
He repeats it a few times…not sure how many.

Then:

e------------------|
B------------------|     (REPEAT 4 TIMES)
G------------------|
D------5---8-7---5-|
A--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|
D--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|


He plays this till it trains off:


e----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G---------------4-5-----------------4h5p4------------------------------|
D------5p0----------------5p0------------------------------------------|
A----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D--5-5------3-3------2-2--------3-3------------------------------------|

The song is in 7/8 time signature. the drums may help lock you into the beat.

dvalukis....your comment might want to be in a sentence rather than 2 words considering RyanSmither has it in Drop D...if you want it in Standard than figure it out...other wise play it the way it above...I say this is a decent tab for starters (needs the solo and good luck spending time figuring Tim Reynolds part lol)

-Correction-
After the first verse being played 4 times I think you want to play the bar 5 on (DAD) 16 times (not 9 on the first one...although when they played it live at Beacon Theater I counted 14)
