Jon Foreman – War In My Blood tab

War in My Blood – Jon Foreman (and Sean Watkins)


This is my first tab I’ve ever done, seems like about time that I actually contributed
=) . I tabbed this by what it looks like and sounds like Jon is playing. I’m pretty sure
is really close to what Jon plays.  He uses CAPO 2.  As you have probably already 
the numbers for frets are in relation to the capo.

I’m calling the intro the MAIN PART because it’s used so frequently in the song,
you see (MAIN PART) that means this is being played. You’re probably going to have to 
song to get the rhythm of it.

If you can get this part, you can play like half the song. The verse uses these chords but Jon fingerpicks them.
