Save Me
Dave Matthews 
"Some Devil"
Tab by: Mike McDonald

This is my first tab but I am sure it is acurate. I got it off the MTV2 interview.
It's an acustic version so it sounds a little different than the "Some Devil"
version.  It's a very weird rythm.  I think it's some sort of eigths or something.
He'll hit the bass note and do a rapid studder on the other strings.  Sometimes
muted.  It's funky, you have to play with it but it's a lot of fun once you get
into it.  Riffs 2 and 3 slow to a normal rythm just like the "Some Devil" version.


Standard tuning.


You'll have to listen to pick up the rythm.

Riff 3:  There's two ways to play this part.  1: the way Dave plays it and 2: the
way people with normal hands, fingers and joints play it.  I'll show both but the
I play it with the second way and it sounds fine.


Dave's way:

g-----7--------7--------7--------7
d-----4--------4--------5--------5
a-----0--------0-----3--3-----5--5
e--7--7-----5--5-----5--5-----3--3


My way:

e--7--7-----5--5-----5--5-----3--5

(Riff 3)
I don't need you to stop the sunshine
I ain't askin' you to make water into wine
I ain't askin' you to fly
                            (Riff 4 starts on "me" and "you" on the same beat)
I'm just askin' you to save me


Riff 4:
G         G   F      C
You might try savin' yourself
C             G    C
Why don't you save me
G         G   F      C
You might try savin' yourself
   C         
As if the moon could
G      G   F      C
Shine, try savin' yourself
   C
I saw tears down...
G      G   F      C
There, try savin' yourself
   C
Why don't you save me, yeah
