*Tabbed by Kdiddy on December 18, 2005*
Artist:  Jack Johnson
Song: Breakdown
Album: In Between Dreams
Tuning: Standard

This song is played on a ukulele but it’s transposed for guitar. It’s very simple,
with yet another basic strumming pattern throughout most of the song. It’s got all
the goodies, and it’s perfect as far as I can tell. If I’m missing something or you
have any comments or suggestions, let me know at Stickadeez@yahoo.com!
Enjoy!
