(Guitar)
Jack Johnson's "Flake" 

Yes, this is the Ben Harper Slide Guitar Solo from Flake- normally 
tuned DADDAD with a 4th fret capo- but to save on snapped strings, 
I transcribed it over to standard tuning with capo on 1st fret.  
Enjoy you mad dogs!


Capo on 1st Fret.  Tab relative to capo
For those of you that can count music, the funky rhythm is added 
in below.
