Jack And Diane Tab

   
Jack & Diane by John Cougar Mellencamp
Tabbed by Ryan O'Connor
-------------------------------------------------------------

This song takes a little practise, but it's really good when
you get it correct (and unplugged!). Don't give up!
I'd seen a few tabs for this song, but none were quite
right, so I have tabbed the whole thing out from ear.

Dots below the bar in this tab mean to raise your fingers
ever so slightly on the fretboard, to achieve a loud
acoustic muting sound (that will have an overtone of the
chord). If you like this tab please tell me: ryan at
