Comfortable (John Mayer)
transcribed by Catherine Gagné (www3.sympatico.ca/g403z)

Capo on 3rd fret

I used the March 2000 webcast (official site) and the album version.

( ) He doesn't always play the chord and but it's a nice addition.
(x00020) might be (x00220) or (x02220)
(x20030) might be (x20230).

(1) I just remembered that time at the market
snuck up behind me and jumped on my shopping cart
and rolled down aisle five
you looked behind you to smile back at me
and crashed into a rack full of magazines
they asked us if we could leave

(2) I can't remember what went wrong last September
though I'm sure you'd remind me if you had to

our love was comfortable and so broken in

(1) I sleep with this new girl I'm still getting used to
my friends all approve,
say "she's gonna be good for you"
They throw me high fives
She says the Bible is all that she reads
and prefers that I not use profanity
Your mouth was so dirty

(2) Life of the party and she swears that she's artsy
but you could distinguish Miles from Coltrane

Our love was comfortable and so broken in
she's perfect
so flawless
(3) or so they say

Interlude (4)

She thinks I can't see the smile that she's faking
and poses for pictures that aren't being taken
(5) I loved you
grey sweatpants
no makeup
so perfect

(6) Our love was comfortable and so broken in
she's perfect
so flawless
(3)I'm not impressed
I want you back


Part 7

" I want you back..." (live)

This is a awesome tab of the album version, but I've never heard the live version you speak of. If it is anywhere near the accuracy of the album tab, I'm sure its great too. Keep up the good work. And I see that someone has been reading their Guitar1 Mag where it talks about how he uses his thumb!
