If I Could Tab

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			     SONG NAME - Jack Johson
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:Al the Pal
Email:PelonGuitarra@yahoo.com

Tuning: standard

Notes: This short but sweet song has basically just two parts to it.
 I'm not gonna sit here and try to confuse you with the exact lay out and/or 
lyrics. I have to assume if you have come this far that you know the song 
well enough to wanna play it and will recognize the different parts.
This song has some  ghost notes in it. They will be marked in "( )". 
Ghost notes are just what you might assume they are. They are notes played 
so subtley (sic?) that you don't actually play them, but you still kinda fret
them or pick them as if they really existed. In this song they are somewhat 
necessary because they keep your hands in the flow and rhythm of the song.
You will notice that in playing this song correctly your hands are almost
doing a trance like movement in a constant rhythm once you really start to 
"feel" it. THat is where ghost notes will be most important. Listen to the 
song for reference.
During the verses Jack changes the order of the parts sometimes but every
part played in this song is listed here. Just listen for when he changes things up.
One last note. Use your FINGERS for this song. No picks!!!
I really picked this song apart and I am pretty sure it is about 90% accurate.
Let me know what you think.

Enjoy

-Al
