Song: Bold As Love LIVE    (But you can play it with the recorded version)
Artist: John Mayer

Tune Down Half A Step
Here’s the URL for the live song (It’s John doing a solo performance)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEBzbv4hJxY

I noticed that all the other tabs for John Mayer’s version are shite! Please rate I’m 
that it’s at least 95% right. Also, when you watch john play this he uses so much 
in his playing so be sure when you play it to do so as well.

I might get around to tabbing the solo out later but i like to just improvise with my 
over the top of him playing. The rest of the song is all written up there so have a play 
and make some up yourself.

Nice tab man! Wish there was the solo available, but nonetheless good job figuring out some of Mayer's crazy guitar playing.

Thanks man. Yeah, the solo would've been good to complete it but couldn't be bothered.

This was what I was looking for, thanks.
I will make a solo up myself :)
