verse

try playing the chords in different positions
if you think it'll sound better.


    Em
e:-----------------------------------------------|
B:--8--8----8----8--8----8-----8--8----8---------|
G:--9--9----9----9--9----9-----9--9----9---------|
D:--9--9----9----9--9----9-----9--9----9---------|
A:-----------------------------------------------|
E:-----------------------------------------------|

Play that a few times then it changes to

    D               C                Em
e:--------------------------------------------------------|
B:--10--10---10-----8---8------8-----8--8---8----8--8---8-|
G:--11--11---11-----9---9------9-----9--9---9----9--9---9-|
D:--12--12---12-----10--10-----10----9--9---9----9--9---9-|
A:--------------------------------------------------------|
E:--------------------------------------------------------|

    D               C              Em
e:-----------------------------------------------|
B:--10--10---10-----8---8----8-----8--8----------|
G:--11--11---11-----9---9----9-----9--9----------|
D:--12--12---12-----10--10---10----9--9----------|
A:-----------------------------------------------|
E:-----------------------------------------------|

and then the lead in to the chorus
    D    C    Bm  A   Bm  Em
e:-----------------------------------------------|
B:--10---8----7---5---7---8----------------------|
G:--11---9----7---6---7---9----------------------|
D:--12---10---9---7---9---9----------------------|
A:-----------------------------------------------|
E:-----------------------------------------------|


Chorus riffs

I'm pretty sure the notes are correct although they may be
played in a different octave, so play the same notes higher up the
neck if you don't think it sounds better.

e:----------------------------------------------------------|
B:----------------------------------------------------------|
G:-----4--2--0-----0-----------4--2--0----0---------0-------|
D:--7-----------2------2----/7-----------2----2--0h2----2h5-|
A:----------------------------------------------------------|
E:----------------------------------------------------------|

e:----------------------------------------------------------|
B:------------------------------3~--------------------------|
G:----4--2--0-------0-------2/4---2h4p2---2h4p2---2p0-------|
D:-/7-----------2-------2---------------2-------2-----2-0---|
A:--------------------------------------------------------2-|
E:----------------------------------------------------------|


e:----------------------------------------------------|
B:-3-----------------------3--------------------------|
G:---4-2-0------2--0----------4-2-0--------2--0-------|  X 2
D:---------2-0-------2--0------------2--0--------(2/)-|
A:----------------------------------------------------|
E:----------------------------------------------------|

That last bit is played twice with the bracketed note only
played on the second time.

Solo

Solo probably isn't exact but just mess around in Em
anyway.

Hope you enjoy it, check out the other Beautiful Girls songs, if u like Jack Johnson, 
like these Aussie guys for sure.
