Title:  Lullaby
Artist(s):  Matt Costa and Jack Johnson
Album:  Sing-A-Longs and Lullabies for the film Curious George


Note:  This is my first time writing a tab.  I think it's right.  If you have a recorded
of the song, you just have to listen past the yukalale.  I'm not really sure how matt
picks the song but I just pick it this way and it sounds pretty good.  Hope you enjoy it
rate it if you get a chance, or send me an email me with any comments.

    Richard Y


Tuning: Standard
[Capo 1]

Good tab. But the song was written by Matt Costa. JJ just plays the Ukelele on it and put it on his Sing-a-longs album

I love this song...I've been looking for the tab for ages.
I think the primary reason was because I added an "e" at the end of lullaby so it looked like lullabye, so this never came up. Oh well, computers are sometimes stupid in some ways, eh? Or maybe I'm the stupid one...

It's a Travis picking pattern I believe. Its like the one Matt did in his song Astair.
