                         STOP THIS TRAIN - John Mayer
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Joe Fitter
Email: joefitter@hotmail.com

Tuning: standard

I love this song, if you get the pick/slap pattern right it sounds like the
chugging of a train. for ease of play the slap can be left out but i think
a part of the song is lost. anyway to master the technique check out noah
needleman's tutorial on youtube. have fun.

This is really good, but the guy in the video you mentioned plays it a bit differently in the beginning, he plays it somewhere on the 12th fret..??
Oh well. anyways, this is a really nice tab, thanks[:

also, the intro seems to be missing a few notes, to me it sounds more like this:
e|----------0---------7-----7-----7---5-----5-----7---0-----0-----5----------|
B|----0h3---------3-------0---------------0---------------0------------------|
G|--------2------2/6------------6---------------6---------------2------------|
D|----0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X----------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
although, everyone i know plays it the way your tab says. Which is easier. haha.
