Wasting Time Tab

   
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			     Wasting Time - Jack Johnson
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:Brett
Email:bakier1@yahoo.com
Tuning:Standard (EADGBe)

This is a great song that I haven't seen any tabs for on this site and thought 
I'd tab out the version from the video (with a different solo than the album.)

Chords used (bar chords): D(557775) A(577655) Em(779987) Bm11xt(777777) G#(466544) G(355433)

| /  slide up
| h  hammer-on
| x  Mute note
| ^  Upstroke
| V  Downstroke
| !  Mute by slapping strings with palm almost like a drum 
(yeah I made that symbol up cuz I don't know what else to put)

(Note:The up and downstrokes and the numerous muting is all in the rhythm)

Note: (I can only give you the notes and chords but the rhythm is essential so listen 
and watch the video at jackjohnsonmusic.com)

Song Order:

(Intro 2x)

(Verse 5x)
I'm just a waste of her energy
Don't ya know, shes just wasting my time
Mm, so why dont we get together
And we could waste everything tonight
And we could waste,
And we could waste it all tonight

(Intro 2x)
Yeah yeah, don't ya know now, we could waste yeah...

(Verse 5x)
And I dont pretend to know what you know
Mm, now please dont pretend to know what's on my mind
But if we already knew everything that everybody knows
We would have nothing to learn tonight
And we would have,
Nothing to show tonight

(Chorus 2x)
Oh, but everybody thinks that everybody knows
About everybody else but nobody knows
Anything about themselves,
'Cause theyre all worried about everybody else

(Intro 2x)
Yeah yeah, don't ya know now, you should know by now...

(Solo)

(Verse 5x))
Cause love's just a waste of our energy
Don't ya know, that this life's just a waste of our time
Mm, so why dont we get together
And we could waste everything tonight
And we could waste,
And we could waste it all, yeah 

(Chorus 2x)
But everybody thinks that everybody knows
About everybody else but nobody knows
Anything about themselves
'Cause they're all worried about everybody else, yeah

(Intro 4x)
Yeah yeah, don't ya know now, you should know by now...

End on D

[And that's it...much easier than I tabbed it out to be, it's just the basic chords and the
neat little kick-ass solo, but I must insist on knowing the rhythm to make it work.)
