About this tab version
This is the full song including the outro solo. Was this info helpful? Yes No
John Mayer
Where The Light Is (Live In LA)
Tuning Standard

This is my favorite version John Mayer does of his song "Who Did You Think I Was"
This tab should be 100% correct. After you practice it enough, you can play right 
along with the record. I hope you enjoy it.

My other tabs from "where the light is" are
I don't need no doctor version 6
Out of my mind whole song
Vultures version 5?
Please comment :)

Right around here John Mayer uses a Leslie Effect Pedal, until almost the end of the solo.

This part is tricky. I'm pretty sure that he rakes down very fast.

Mayer uses a Stratocaster, and he moves the pick-up selector back and forth. (Neck/Bridge Position)
