                             SONG NAME - Jack Johson
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:Al the Pal
Email:PelonGuitarra@yahoo.com

Tuning: standard

Notes: This short but sweet song has basically just two parts to it.
 I'm not gonna sit here and try to confuse you with the exact lay out and/or 
lyrics. I have to assume if you have come this far that you know the song 
well enough to wanna play it and will recognize the different parts.
This song has some  ghost notes in it. They will be marked in "( )". 
Ghost notes are just what you might assume they are. They are notes played 
so subtley (sic?) that you don't actually play them, but you still kinda fret
them or pick them as if they really existed. In this song they are somewhat 
necessary because they keep your hands in the flow and rhythm of the song.
You will notice that in playing this song correctly your hands are almost
doing a trance like movement in a constant rhythm once you really start to 
"feel" it. THat is where ghost notes will be most important. Listen to the 
song for reference.
During the verses Jack changes the order of the parts sometimes but every
part played in this song is listed here. Just listen for when he changes things up.
One last note. Use your FINGERS for this song. No picks!!!
I really picked this song apart and I am pretty sure it is about 90% accurate.
Let me know what you think.

Enjoy

-Al

Not sure why this version hasn't been rated higher...I think it might be all the talk about "ghost notes". Ignore all of those cause all they will do is confuse you. You'll get your own rhythm down once you get the song down and you won't worry about any stupid ghost notes. Aside from the ghost notes crap this is the best version on UG. The intro and verses are spot on. The lead into the course is right but it is played in the 7th and 6th fret not the 9th and 8th. The chorus is off by just a little, about 98% accurate and good enough that you should be able to take it and make it sound good.

This is the most 100% accurate if you change the bridge to 6th and 7th fret. Way better than all the others on here. Well done!
