*Tabbed by K. Diddy on 11/10/05*
Song:  Better Together
Artist: Jack Johnson
Album: in between dreams
Tuning: Standard [EADGBE]

This tab is 100% perfect.  This is how he plays it on the album, on AOL sessions, and
in concert.  Nobody got the bridge right, and nobody nailed the ending solo either.
There is *NO CAPO* for this song!  It’s a basic strum pattern followed throughout the
entire song, so once you get it down you’re good to go.  Pluck the first note of the
chord, finger-strum the chord *up* and then knock the chord (mute it). Jack uses this
in a ton of his songs.

Great job man, sounds dead on.You just forgot that in the verse after the 5.chord he slides his index to 5 and plays it again.
