Daughters
by John Mayer
from the album 'Heavier Things'

i noticed there was a tab for the song w/ the chords that work out perfectly
but there was no tabs for the little fillins played by the other guitar in the song

the chords for the intro are Bm7 Em7 Asus4 Dx2
the chords for the verses are the same; Bm7 Em7 Asus4 D
the chords for the chorus are also the same; Bm7 Em7 Asus4 D
then after the second chorus there is a verse that starts off 'boys you can break', and
the chords for that verse are F(d shaped) D#(d shaped) D
Dmaj7 Dsus2 Bm7 Em7 D/F# A#6/F B6/G
after that the rest of the song is the same 4 chords Bm7 Em7 Asus4 D

A#6/F  1 0 3 0 1 3
B6/G   "  "  "  "  2 frets higher
Bm7    x 2 4 2 3 0



this is played in the intro over the chords John plays
e------0-------------------------------------------------
b------8---3--(5)--7h8--7----------------------5--7h8-7--
g--4---7-------------------------4--6-7-4--6-7-----------
d------0-------------------------------------------------
a--------------------------------------------------------
e--------------------------------------------------------

this is played over the same chords but it is played after the first chorus
e-----------------------------------------------
b------------------------5----------------------
g--4---0-4-7---4-7-6---7---7--------------------
d-----------------------------------------------
a-----------------------------------------------
e-----------------------------------------------

and this is played later on in the song after the lines '..but boys would be gone
without warmth of a woman's good good heart'  listen to the song for how many times you
play the whole thing through though
e-----------------------------------------------
b-----------------------------------------------
g--6-7-------6-7-------6-7-------6--7-----------
d------7-6-------5-4-------7-6--------4---------
a-----------------------------------------------
e-----------------------------------------------

this is about my 4th tab so please rate this if you found it to be helpful

here are the lyrics for reference, even though you should also listen to the song to get
it completely right

i know a girl
she pus the color inside of my world
shes jsut like a maze
where all of the walls all continually change
now i started to see
maybe its got nothing to do with me

so fathers be good to your daughters
daughters will love like you do
girls become lovers who turn into mothers
so mothers be good to your daughters too

oh you see that skin
its the same shes been standing in
since the day she saw him walking away
now shes left, cleaning up the mess he made

chorus

boys you can break
find out how much they can take
boys will be strong and
boys soldier on
but boys would be gone
without the warmth of a woman's good good heart

on behalf of everyman
looking out for everygirl
you are the god and the weight of her world

chorus

so mothers be good to your daughters too
so mothers be good to your daughters too


thanks again, and please leave me a rating so i know how well im doing

I have no idea what the F (d shaped) chord is, or what d shaped means, it would be great if you could help me out. Awesome tab

it just means its playing the D chord but when you play it move it to the right 3 frets, that way it looks like the D chord but its to the right more, and it actually plays the notes used to play an F chord
