John Mayer - Who Says tab

			     :Who Says - John Mayer:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Michael Cheng (meakel)

Couldn't find a properly accurate or specific enough one so here goes. Any
questions or correction just PM me. Great song.

Chords Used:
Dsus2 - xx0230
G5 - 3x003x (0) (At certain points, when he plays the G5 or the slash chord,
he plays the open high E instead)
D/F# - 20023x (0)
Em7 - 022030
A - x02220
A#dim7 - x1202x
Bm7 - x2423x
Em - 022000 

There are several ways to play this song.
1. Strum each chord. Simple and easy.
2. Follow the tab's notes
3. Play it like John. Use the notes I give you as well as his percussive
thumb slaps. I'll put a capital 'T' above where there should be a thumb
slap. Listen to the song to confirm the rhythm. Also when there is a capital
'S' strum the strings for the chord denoted.

Tuning:Standard (EADGBe)

.*Chorus*. (At this point the little licks at the end of each A chord get so
complicated I'm pretty sure it's an overdub. If you want, just play around
with notes in that position for the lick)
