Free Fallin - John Mayer
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: bkelly2028@gmail.com
Email: bkelly2028@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard, Capo 3


This is a far more involved version than any other tab out there at the moment.
For the verses and chorus's that are finger plucked,
there are about 3 different licks or variations that John plays.
Try to alternate or cycle between all 3, depending what fits where
with the lyrics. play around with it and have fun. Any comments,
good or bad, please email me. This is my first tab so
sorry if its not the best layout.

Hi all - just now updating this 6 years later...Here's a video I made back then of me
playing this tab, so you can have a sense of what it's supposed to sound like. Video

Great Job. However, the intro is a little messed up. I think he goes through it like one more time. Nice job though.
