		     Split Screen Sadness - John Mayer
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Benny

After finding only chords for this song on the internet, i decided to tab out the
song for myself. i want to note that this tab is designed for two guitars and does
not accurately represent the song. most of the synth parts are recreated here for
guitar. please feel free to bash it.
