tabbed by-smellslikefeet1. the song sounds really hard but its actually quite easy. dave
matthews  musicans are jazz trained while he's self taught. so the guitar isnt hard its
just different. ya needa get used to it and practice it. dave matthews real talent is
singing and playing hard rythems at the same time. ive been playing his music since i
started playing guitar all ya gotta do is get used to the style. ive seen him play this
live and i have all the. Tripping billies videos so this tab is at least 90% right i can
garentee! The first part of the song... the intro is kinda hard cuz u gotta stretch ur
finger and keep the rythem so i noted the finger positions. the intro is only in some of
the recordings so you can play without it aswell.

/-slide to
h-hammeron
x-mute
() variable note-liable to not be played.

heres the intro.

5fret-third finger,2fret-first finger,6fret-fourth finger,
4fret-second finger,mute-third finger,7th fret 6t string- thrid finger
7th fret 3rd string- foruth finger. this is jsut for the intro the rest of the
fignering for teh song is self explanitory. just keep your fourth finger in the
possition its easier to play.

play this four times | outro ||--------|--------|------------|------------|--------------||--------|--------|------------|------------|--------------||-6-6-6-6|4-4-4-4-|4-h-6-6-6-6-|6s-7-7-7-7--|-2-4----------||-2-2-2-2|2-2-2-2-|2---2-2-2-2-|0--0-0-0-0--|-0-0----------||-x---x--|x-x-x-x-|x---x-x-x-x-|x--x-x-x-x--|-x-x----------||-5---5--|5-5-5-5-|5---5-5-5-5-|5s-7-7-7-7--|-2-3----------|
