Heart Of Life Acoustic by John Mayer The Heart Of Life by John Mayer Tabbed by: Janne Virtanen, Finland, [email protected] Tuning: half-step down Okay, so this is an acoustic(/normal) version of a great song, The Heart Of Life, based on an acoustic performance of John Mayer that can be seen in youtube.com Other tabs here are quite Ok, but there were few parts that didn't quite please me, and finally I decided to tab one myself. Hopefully this will come out good, as it is my first one. Hope that you accept my vision of it and maybe use it in your own playing..! :) John uses only his THUMB and INDEX finger! So don't hassle with your middle finger in this one... So this is modified, not an album version. You can play the extra stuff as you like, but in the video they are played exactly like this (in verse, chorus, interlude). The biggest changes are in the chorus part of the song. Hope you find those refreshing! I have added the strumming pattern in some places where the song has changed a bit so that it'd be easier to catch up. d=down u=up Chords that are used: D Bm F#m G D* A e|-x----x---x---x---x---x--| B|-10---7---2---3---3---2--| G|-11---7---2---4---2---2--| D|-12---9---4---5---0---2--| A|-x----x---x---x---x---0--| E|-10---7---2---3---2---x--| *I'm 100% sure that in D chord the D string is played "open" so it's NOT e|--x--| like in every other tab in here..

CHORUS || This is what I see & hear him do So here's the part which John plays differently than in other tabs that are found here.. Don't go up to the tenth fret on the lower E string, just go down to fifth fret on the A string... There could be "ghost notes", but I can't hear them so good that I could be sure...

Hold your middle finger on D string, and use your index and ring fingers on B string, while Sliding up and down on the neck. Slide will give a nice flowing touch. e|----------------------------------------------------------------| B|-2-------2-------3-------3-------5-------5-------7-------7------| G|-----0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0--| D|-----------2---------------4---------------5---------------7----| A|-0---x---0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X--| E|----------------------------------------------------------------| ..life is good... e|----------------------------------------------------------------| B|-8-------8-------10------10------12------12------14------14-----| G|-----0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0--| D|-----------9---------------11--------------12--------------14---| A|-0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X--| E|----------------------------------------------------------------| Oh, oh my life is good... e|----------------------------------------------------------------| B|-12------12------10------10------8-------8-------7-------7------| G|-----0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0--| D|-----------12--------------11--------------9---------------7----| A|-0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X---0---X--| E|----------------------------------------------------------------| Of my life is good... | slow down a bit | e|----------------------------------------X-----------------------| B|-5-------5-------3--------3------------2~~----------------------| G|-----0-------0-------0----------0-----0~~-----------------------| D|-----------5-----------------4-------2~~------------------------| A|-0---X---0---X---0---X----0-----X---0~~-------------------------| E|------------------------------------X---------------------------| Of my life... So that's it! If the outro doesn't please you, You can play the intro part as outro a couple of times and fade it out in the end, it sounds good too! When John plays with his strat, the outro rises even higher, like on Where the Light is he goes up to 15th fret.. But as I said this is played with the acoustic guitar. I hope this helps you out and brings some new ideas! It's been a hell of a job...
