                             Sexy Plexi - Jack Johnson
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Teagan Mago

I'm not 100% sure about about the solo, but I'm sure about the rest of the song.  This
took a long time so please show me some love. :)

02/28/14 - Thanks to DJWLaan for the minor correction of removing the extra note.

Tips:
The "x" indicates a guitar slap/muted note.  I generally slap my thumb and hit multiple
strings, while palm muting. Make sure to listen to the song and try to capture the
timing.  You must be able to quickly change barre chord shapes to follow the original track.

Chord shapes:
F#M shape, switching to Bm shape
For pre-chorus and chorus, it's a barre chord E shape, moving up the frets.
It's important to lift up in between the chords to pluck the B and G strings as
indicated in the tab.

Tuning: Standard

Thanks for the tab, this helps out a lot. A couple of things are not quite right I think, though. I tried playing it but it just didn't work.

This sounds right to me (so: skip the second F#-note on the low E and play it just like the Bm-shape):

e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------3----3----3---0------------------------------|
G|----3------3---3---0-------4----4----4---0------------------------------|
D|----4------4---4---0---------------4------------------------------------|
A|-------------4-----------2----------------------------------------------|
E|--2------x-------x------------x--------x--------------------------------|


Squashing the other note in there just doesn't seem to work. Maybe I don't get it, I dunno...

Second, the chorus-end reverses the shapes, so it' s first the Bm and then the F#, not vice versa. The same goes for the bit before "you're breaking your mind, you're breaking your mind" and during this the shapes are reversed as well. So it goes like:

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----3----3----3----0----------------------------------------------------|
G|-----4----4----4----0-------3-----3---3---0------------------------------|
D|-------------4--------------4-----4---4---0------------------------------|
A|---2--------------------------------4------------------------------------|
E|-------x----------x------2-----x--------x--------------------------------|


That's all, thanks for the tab! Nice work :)

Ah, nevermind the comment on the chorus-end, that one is okay. It's just the one you marked as 'Verse' coming after the second chorus. ;) Sorry!
