Email: jakejohn1991@yahoo.co.uk

This is my first tab, so please mind any mistakes. If there is something wrong
then please send an email to the address above.

**UPDATE**
Check "Guitar Four" section for updates

Standard Tuning

GUITAR ONE
GUITAR TWO
GUITAR THREE (Bass)
GUITAR FOUR (Electric)
GUITAR FIVE (Piano)

Chord List for guitar one, two and four:
A	x0222x - (I mute the e string only because it sounds better to me. You
don't have to do this.
D/F#	2x023x
F#m	244222
F	133211
C	032010
G	320003

NOTE: Guitar two and three is PALM MUTED throughout the entire song.
NOTE: Guitar four starts at second chorus (clouds of sulfur) - best played on
	electric guitar (I don't know the settings. If anyone figures it out
	email me and I'll update the tab)
NOTE: Listen to the song for the timing on guitars 3-5
NOTE: For the solo I recommend using the Heartbreak Warfare Solo Tab (first version).

GUITAR FOUR (Electric)

NOTE: Best to listen to the song for timing.
NOTE: John Mayer uses a scattered whammy technique (I don't know if that's the actual 
when playing the notes. Here's a live version of the song, so you can see for yourself: 
(skip to 0:35)
