                                         SOMETHING LIKE OLIVIA - JOHN MAYER
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Mariano25
E-mail: marianoa07@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard

Hi, this is my first tab, I basically took a previous one and improved it as best 
I could by listening
to the song a lot. It's based on the acousting version and the video actually helps a lot with hand
positions so check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izkqPdVAdL4

There is a chord in the solo I just didn't know what it was and then the C' I'm pretty sure it's a
Hendrix variation of the C' chord used for blues maninly. Every single chord is 
palm muted and slightly
playing the base note. Also there are tons of riff between the chords, like every other JM song.

There's quite a bit more to it but this makes it way easier to pick up the hand positions and riffs from the video. Thanks for taking the time to make this, its a tough song to tab. 5*
