"The Idea of You" by Dave Matthews Band
Transcribed by Adam Hanley

===========================================================

Note: This song is played on a Gryphon 12-string, which is in a raised D tuning. To get this effect 

on your guitar, you'll need to throw a capo on the 10th fret -- or, if you've been playing Stay or 

Leave, You Never Know, or another one of Dave's songs on a raised baritone tuning (B-e-a-d-f#-b), 

the capo goes on fret 3 (and is much easier to play).

===========================================================

For those of you who may have trouble following along, here's the order of the different sections. 

If a section shows up .5 times, then you should only play the first measure of it. I'm also 

counting this song in a slow 4/4, so the measure in section (IIb) is in 2/4, unless you're counting 

beats faster than I am. 


Order:

I)    x2.5
IIa)  x4
IIb)  x1
IIIa) x3.5
IIIb) x1
IIa)  x4
IIb)  x1
IIIa) x3.5
IIIb) x1
IV)   x2
IIb)  x1
IIIa) x3.5
IIIb) x2
IIb)  x1
IIIa) x3.5
IIIc) x1
IIa)  x4
V)    x1
