                             Gravity -  John Mayer Trio
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: guitarman420420
this is my first tab and i did it by ear but i still think it sounds much better than 
other versions.  this is from the trios new live album Try! and its one of the best songs 
the album.
nobody does any good tabs for mayer songs so i thought i would give it a try

remember that john always uses his thumb on the low E!

tell me what you think

listen to the song for timing

Tuning: standard

Hey man, this tab sounds fantastic, but there's only one problem, John doesn't play it like this.... the intro is played on the G and B strings, around the 8th, 9th and 10th frets... I have a video from the day before Thanksgiving last year which was on DirectTV, and I checked it out. Like I said, your tab sounds great, but it isn't quite right...
