                Nowhere man
John Butler Trio


Seen a few versions of this about & none of them are quiet right so thought
id have a crack at a cleaner version as this little tune is not in the
official book...

There is a banjo accompanying on the album version following the main riff,
harmonics etc if i buy a banjo one day ill tab that out too...   


Tuning: Half step down (Eb,Ab,Db,Gb,Bb,eb)

Intro:                                 Main Riff:
e|------------------------------------|------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------|-----0h1-0--------------------------|
G|------------------------------------|----0------2-----0--2--2------0---0-|
D|-----------x-x--------x-x-------x---|---0----------0h2--------0----------|
A|-----------x-x--------x-x-------x-2-|-----------0--------3-------3---2---|
E|-----------x-x--------x-x-------x---|3-----------------------------------|

                Verse Transition Into Bridge:
                                       D  D     U D U     D  D U   D U D U
e|------------------------------------|------------------------------------|

A|-----------0--------3-------3---2---|3--3-----3-3-3-----3--3-3---3-3-2-2-|
E|3-----------------------------------|---x-----x-x-x--------x-x-----x---x-|

Note:JB'S not only varying palm muting but also fret muting. Pressure is
applied with the fretted fingers on the down stroke and muted on the
upstroke. U can also hear 0 2 0 as he ceases muting altogether on the G
string... 

  D  D     U D U     D  D U   D U D U   continue pattern.....
e|------------------------------------|------------------------------------|

A|0--0-----0-0-0-----0--0-0---0-0-2-2-|3--3-----3-3-3-----3--3-3---3-3-2-2-|

8th bar of bridge transition into chorus:

E|---x-----x-x-x------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-3---3-3--------------------0-0-0-0-|
