                             GOODBYE - Jack Johnson
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Terry Long
Email: mrmaestro1 'at' gmail.com

This song was a bonus if you pre-ordered "Sleep Through The Static" on iTunes.

Tuning: Standard
Tempo: 130 bpm  (swing the eighth notes)
Time Signature: 4/4

Extra or less strums may appear in the recording because of the inherent
nature that comes with just plain strumming chords. I don't feel I need to
write down exactly how this is strummed. Note: sometimes on the second
lines of the verses he changes chords half a beat early so you slightly hear
the next chord being strummed.

Also, as long as the chord position is still held down, let all notes ring.
