		    CALIFORNIA DREAMIN' - John Mayer Trio


This is a tab for the California Dreamin' cover by John Mayer Trio. I used the
performance on Conan O'Brien's show for the intro, the chords, some licks he
plays during the chorus and the verses and the solo. I think the solo is 
pretty accurate, but ofcourse do not forget he plays it different every time.

I did not count every time he strums one chord, just listen to the performance
and try to get the rhythm. 

As always, feel free to leave a comment!

The rest of the first verse is like this, he only plays around with the 4th

Put some heavy vibrato on the last 5 notes on the 20th fret.

e|------------------------------20----20-20-20-20-20-------------------------|
B|-11--13---15---16---18---20---x--------------------------------------------|

And back to the chorus. This is just mostly using the slide-lick a couple
of times.
