Slow Dancing In A Burning Room Tab

Tabbed by Darren Peters (dp05yk@brocku.ca)
John Mayer
Slow Dancing in a Burning Room
Standard Tuning, no capo

Note that this does not contain the "high" guitar part, rather the consistent part 
it.  I'm also adding in some

random bass notes to fill it in if you're playing by yourself, which will be bracketed.

   We're goin' down...               And you can see it too.

    Then some stuff at the end that involves mostly that higher guitar.
