HOPE - JACK JOHNSON, "Sleep Through the Static" (2008)
Exact chords and tab by ClassicalfreaK, 2015
=============================================================================================================
A great deal of this song follows a specific groove, that you can see here in tab:

  G       /B /Bb   Am7    Am7 Am7/B
e|----------------|----------------|
B|--0---0---0---0-|--1---1---1---1-|
G|--0---0---0---0-|--0---0---0---0-|
D|--0---0---0---0-|--2---2---2---2-|
A|--------2---1---|0-------0---2---|
E|3---------------|----------------|

The bass-line in the E- and A-string is played mainly by the piano and synth, and the bass plays around with
the chord-progression. I feel that the fingers used to play the bass-part should be 
3...2-1-(open)...(open)-4- [repeat]. I say 4 because 3 and 1 will be busy with the Am7 chord.

This is what the piano plays on top during the chorus:
  G                      Am7        C           
e|----3-----------------|----7-----------------|
B|----------------------|----------------------|
G|3-4-------------------|7-8-------------------|
D|----------------------|----------------------|
A|----------------------|----------------------|
E|----------------------|----------------------|

  G                      Am7         C7
e|----3-----------------|----7-------9-10----------|
B|----------------------|------------------11-10-8-|
G|3-4-------------------|7-8-----------------------|
D|----------------------|--------------------------|
A|----------------------|--------------------------|
E|----------------------|--------------------------| x2



I hope you enjoy my arrangement! I really enjoy this song.

INTRO
G   Am7   G   Am7

VERSE
G                          Am7
  Shadow walks faster than you
                              G
You don't really know what to do
                              Am7
Do you think that you're not alone?
                               G
You really think that you are immune, too
                                Am7
It's gonna get that the best of you
                           G                   Am7
It's gonna lift you up and let you down, mm mm mm-mm-mmm

BRIDGE
          C                   C/B             Am7
It will defeat you then teach you to get back up
         C              C/B               Am7
After it takes away all that you learn to love

VERSE
G                    Am7
Your reflection is a blur, out of focus
       G                                  Am7
But in confusion, the frames are suddenly burnt
                           G
At in the end of a roll of delusion
                    Am7
A ghost waiting its turn
                    G
Now I see can right through
                           Am7
It's a warning that nobody heard

BRIDGE
        C                 G/B                Am7
It will teach you to love what you're afraid of
         C              G/B
After it takes away all that
             Am7
You learn to love

PRE-CHORUS
    G         C6
But you don't always
G       G7           C
Have to hold to your head
Higher than your heart

CHORUS
G                           Am7
 You better hope you're not alone
           C
You better hope you're not alone
G                           Am7
 You better hope you're not alone
G           C7              Am7
 You better hope you're not alone
           C
You better hope you're not alone
G                          Am7
You better hope you're not alone
           C7
You better hope you're not alone, so

G  G/B  G/Bb  Am7
   Du   du    du
Am7         Am7/B
Hope you're not alone
G  G/B  G/Bb  Am7  Am7  Am7/B
   Hm   hm    hum

VERSE
G
Your,
                            Am7
Your echo comes back out of tune
                         G
Now you can probably get used to it
                 Am7
Reverb is just a room
                            G
The problem is that there's no truth
                  Am7
It fading way too soon
                      G
Your shadow is on the move
                               Am7
And maybe you should be moving too
          C              G/B                 Am7
Before it takes away all that you learned to love
          C                   G/B             Am7
It will defeat you then teach you to get back up

PRE-CHORUS
      G
Cause you don't
C6
Always
G       G7        C
Have to hold your head
Higher than your heart

CHORUS
G                           Am7
 You better hope you're not alone
           C
You better hope you're not alone
G                           Am7
 You better hope you're not alone
              C7
You better be hoping you're not alone
G                           Am7
 You better hope you're not alone
           C
You better hope you're not alone
G                           Am7
 You better hope you're not alone
           C7
You better hope you're not so,

OUTRO
