John Mayer - Covered In Rain tab

Covered In Rain
Transcribed By Daniel Aramaki

Drop D Tuning


OK.  Throughout this entire song, Iím not sure if he ever plays the same thing twice.
Because of that, It is VERY difficult to tab out.  I will try though.


With this intro part  he plays these chords in a variety of ways
e---------------------
b----3----10---11-----
g----0----(0)--(0)----
d----3----10---10-----
a----1-----8----8-----
D----1-----8----8-----



Here are a few of them.  Just listen to the song and use your imagination.
e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--3---3---X-----3----------3~---10---10-----11----11----10-----|
G|--0---0---X-----0--------0-------0-----------0-----0-----0-----|
D|--3---3---X-----3------3--------10----------10----10----10-----|
A|--------------------------------8-------8---8---8-----8--------|
D|--1-------X---1------1-----------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--3---3---X-----3---------3-------10---10-----11----11----10---|
G|--0---0---X-----0-----------0------0-----------0-----0-----0---|
D|--3---3---X-----3-------------3---10----------10----10----10---|
A|-----------------------1----------8-------8---8---8-----8------|
D|--1-------X---1------1-----------------------------------------|

Ok the Backup guitar plays these chords throughout
e|---3-------1-------1-------------8------8----------------------|
B|---3-------3-------3-----------6------6------------------------|
G|---3-------2-------3---------7------7--------------------------|
D|---1-------3-------1-------8-----------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------|

This is where it gets confusing.  Iíll try and explain it the best 
I can.  For your finger position, use your thumb on the first fret
Of the low E (now D) and your index finger on the first fret of the 
B string and leave it there.  Then your pinky and ring fingers go on the notes on the third frets.
e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---3--3--3----1h3---3--3--3--3----1----------------------------|
G|---0--0--0----0-----0--0--0--0----0----------------------------|
D|---3--3--3----3-----3--3--3--3----3----------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---1--------1-----1------------1-------------------------------|

Now use your thumb on the first fret of the A string.  And leave 
Everything else the same
e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---3--3--3----1h3---3--3--3--3----3----------------------------|
G|---0--0--0----0-----0--0--0--0----0----------------------------|
D|---3--3--3----3-----3--3--3--3----3----------------------------|
A|---1-------1------1-------------1------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|

Repeat that whole thing a couple of times.


THAT is the basis of the whole song with variations throughout the whole thing.

The solo he plays is pretty tough.
Too tough to tab out! But I think he starts with a 
C major and Then goes into a B flat major pentatonic scales.
But Iím not sure.


Lyrics

In these days with the world getting colder
She spends more time sleeping over
Than I planned.

Tonight we're gonna order in
Drinking wine and watching CNN
It's dark I know, but then again
It's the brightest thing I've got.

When I'm covered in the rain, rain
When I'm covered in the rain, rain, rain, rain

From fireworks to fireplaces
Summer stole what fall replaces
And there were people watching all the people
People watching us right back now.

Standing by the missing signs
At the CVS by the checkout line
She puts her crying hands in mine
Cause she's the brightest thing I've got.

When I'm covered in the rain, rain
When I'm covered in the rain, rain, rain, rain
Oh I'm covered in the rain
Oh I'm covered in the rain
Oh I'm covered in the rain
Oh no no oh no no no

And come December Lydia left
She mentions something bout it being for the best
And I can't say I disagree, it's killing me
And now I'm standing facing West
Tracing my fingers around her silhouette
I haven't gotten used to yet
But it's the brightest thing I got.

When I'm covered in the rain, yeah rain
When I'm covered in the rain, rain, rain, rain
