Barefoot Bluejean Night - Jake Owen

Tab by: SteveC67

Other version here doesn't work to my ears.
You can hit the notes for the intro from a regular E A B chord but the way it is done on the
record is fingering only 3 strings as shown below. Lots of open strings and let 'em ring 
for a big fat 'airy' sound.
Listen to the record for strumming pattern.

I start out by barreing the ADG strings at the 7'th fret with my index finger right off 
the bat then fill in the 9'th on
DG strings with my ring and pinky. This sets you up for the slide up to the B chord 
where you will lift off the ring finger.
For the B? you lift of your pinky. Then slide back down to the 7'th fret with the same 3 
strings barred and drop your
pinky back on the G string 9'th fret for the A. Slide back up to the B then repeat for 
the intro.

Sorry Not sure what the chord name is for B?

Playing solo I sometimes stick in half the intro where the short slide dobro 
instrumentals are.

Outro: (for the Wohh part; 2 different singers repeat the wohh wohh part. Jake doesn't do the wohh. Playing solo I like to do the first one only Ie. "wohh never gonna grow up" then again at "wohh we were doin it right". Trying to do them all and do the lead vocal sounds rushed. Same for the outro, first wohh only.
