Ok so this isn't the typical way to play this song. Its from the Where The Light Is
In the beginning of the song Johns back up guitarist plays a slide solo and then the song
With this tab you can play the solo and then the entire song. It sounds great when you 
it down, so try it out.

Tuning: Open D (DADF#AD)


Here is how to tune your guitar to open D..the notes should match when played. Drop the
E to a D, G to F#, B to A, and high E to D.

Have you even seen the video from that performance?! That is not how John plays the chords! He starts at like fret seven...please watch it, and correct this if you can

It's not the part that John plays. It's the part of Robbie Mcintosh who plays the slideguitar.
