Jack Johnson - Inaudible Melodies tab

This is an awesome song, with some really cool guitar parts. It can be a bit
tricky at first but is really pretty fun to play and sing to. The only part I
think might be a bit off the original would be the end of the first verse,
but it still sounds perfectly fine, and that is how I play it. Just listen
to the song if you have questions. But, enjoy!

The single vertical line is explained at the bottom.
The double vertical line indicates where Jack starts singing the first verse.
