Hey there, this is my tab for Jack Johnson's "Upside Down", from the
album "Sing-a-longs and Lullabies for the film Curious George.

This is my little interpretation of it, with a little information borrowed
from some of the other tabs and songs.

The whole thing is pretty straightforward, only thing that might throw a
reader off is my lyric system. The key words at the start of a line corresponds
to the note directly above it, so try to read the lyrics diagonally. Sorry if
it can be confusing.

and remember,

| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| +  harmonic
| x  Mute note
