Tuning: Standard

Legend:
v = downstroke
^ = Upstroke
h = Hamer-on
p = Pull-off
* = release the chord quickly and hold it back down to add that extra detail into the song.

This song is normally played with 3 guitars, i'll Tab on how to play it with one. To me, 
sounds alot better if you play it on an acoustic alone tho.

the tabs on this song really suck so i tabbed out the intro and verse here

Intro:
e|-----5h7p5---------------------------|
B|-------------7-5h7p5-------7---------|
G|---------------------6-6h7-----------|
D|-------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------|

Verse:
e|----0--0---0-0---0------0---0-0-0-0---------|
B|----0--0---0-0---0------0---0-0-0-0---------|
G|----4--4---4-4---4------4---4-4-4-4---------|
D|----5--5---5-5---5------5---5-5-5-5---------|
A|----5--5---5-5---5------5---5-5-5-5---------|
E|----3--3---3-3---3------3---3-3-3-3---------|
      v  v   v ^   ^      v   v ^ v ^
         *     *          *
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/a/america/ventura_highway_tab_ver_5.html ]
e|----2--2---2-2---2------2---2-2-2-2---------|
B|----2--2---2-2---2------2---2-2-2-2---------|
G|----2--2---2-2---2------2---2-2-2-2---------|
D|----0--0---0-0---0------0---0-0-0-0---------|
A|----0--0---0-0---0------0---0-0-0-0---------|
E|--------------------------------------------|
      v  v   v ^   ^      v   v ^ v ^
         *     *          *

Now if you wanted to include the riff into your playing, you would play it like this:

e|----0--0---0-0----5h7p5----------------------|
B|----0--0---0-0----------7-5h7p5--------7-----|
G|----4--4---4-4-------------------6-6h7-------|
D|----5--5---5-5-------------------------------|
A|----5--5---5-5-------------------------------|
E|----3--3---3-3-------------------------------|
      v  v   v ^
         *     *

e|----2--2---2-2----5h7p5----------------------|
B|----2--2---2-2----------7-5h7p5--------7-----|
G|----2--2---2-2-------------------6-6h7-------|
D|----0--0---0-0-------------------------------|
A|----0--0---0-0-------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------|
      v  v   v ^
         *     *

you can even switch it up, playing rythm/riff on some measures and just rythem on the 
it dosn't matter as long as you play the right chords and stay in time.

have fun!
