			   I WANT YOU - Third Eye Blind
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Song: I Want You
Artist: Third Eye Blind
Album: Third Eye Blind
Tabbed by: rd93
Tuning: Standard (EADBGe)

I tabbed out the electric fills and listed the acoustic chords. The electric has delay,
reverb, and probably some other effects on it throughout the whole song. The fills are
shown above the corresponding lyrics. The acoustic chords are only heard in the intro , 
first verse, and chorus, but you can play it through the whole song if you want.

Chords:
G 320033 or 320003 or 320000
Am x02210 or x02010 or x02013
Cmaj7 x32000 or x32010
Em 022000 or 020000 or 002000

Any of these chords will work. You can't really hear the acoustic too well anyway, and
it sounds better when you switch up the chords every now and then. The main chord
progression is G Am Cmaj7 Am, but you can use Em instead of Cmaj7 sometimes too.

Here's that funky ass (keyboard?) riff:
