Greg Laswell - Take A Bow tab

Take a Bow
by Greg Laswell
From "Take a Bow (2010)"
Tuning: Drop D

-I figured I'd tab this out since it's an amazing song,and with it's 
inclusion in the new movie "Friends With Benifits (2011)" I imagine it will
be looked up much more often. I've only included Greg's main guitar part for 
this tab, if I find time I'll tab out the 2nd guitar part you can hear on the 
album.

*Note: The hammer on/pull off in the G chord is moved around a bit througout 
the song,feel free to play it however/whenever you'd like as it usually fits. 
Also, adding the 5th string 5th fret D to the G chord sounds good, but can 
make it difficult on your fingeringfor the hammer on/pull off, so I just 
leave it out. (So does Greg Laswell as his YouTube video would suggest :)

*Also, the E and F chords sound just fine as I've written, but if you want a 
cleaner E chord, take out the D on the 4th string and mute it as it adds a 
7th to the chord, and the F chord sounds fine with with the D, but adding it 
as a 6th to the chord didn't sound good enough for me to write it that way.
