John Mayer - Taking On Water Live tab

ok i dont feel like figuring out the rest of the song.
maybe if enough people ask for it, but for now, here is the intro/verse.
100% by ear. by me. not stolen like some stuff ive seen on this site.


p.s. im 99% sure that he plays it like this.
saw him live and he was playing in this area, though i couldn't see his fingers.

___________________NOTES *READ BEFORE PLAYING*_______________________________
-this song is done by finger picking.

-he uses his thumb for the E string. (this goes same for all his songs)

-since the only recordings of this song is over live videos, note that some parts will 
different once and a while.
listen to the song from youtube for those subtle differences.

-this song is not fully done yet, may be different from the final version yet to be released.


 p= pull off
 h= hammer
(x)= may or may not be played

(intro/verse first time)
