			 The Economy Of Mercy- Switchfoot
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Song:The Economy Of Mercy
Band: Switchfoot
Album: Learning To Breathe
Tabbed by: timmy3125
Tuning: Standard (EADGBE)

This one of Switchfoot's mellow songs and it's one of my favorites
from the album Learning To Breathe. The guitar uses a lot of 
individual note picking and simple chords. Its a simple song and
here's how I play it. If you like it, go ahead and rate it!

INTRO: Basically, you just make a G chord and hit these individual 
notes. You play this 4x through and there is a little bit of 
variation sometimes with the individual notes but this is most of it.
At the end of the 2nd time you play the extra fill that goes
in between the two divisions of the intro. Then repeat this again.
e|---------|--------------------------------------------------|
B|---------|---3---3-------3-----3----------3-----3-----------|
G|---------|---0----0-------0-----0-0--------2-----0-0--------|
D|------0~-|---0---------0-----0---0------0-----0---0---------|
A|----2----|---2----------------------------------------------|
E|--3------|---3----------------------------------------------|
This is the fill that is played after the 1st time 
through (0:15) and then again just before the verse.

A|-2~---0-----0--2~------------2~---0-----0--2~--------|
E|-3~---0-----0--3-------------3~---0-----0--3---------|

PRECHORUS: "Where will I find you?" For the 1st chord here, make 
sure you do an upstroke on the 1st chord or it will sound wrong! 
The rest of the chords can just be played with normal downstrokes.
e|---3~----2--3-----2--3-----2--3---------|
B|---3~----3--3-----3--3-----3--3---------|
G|---2~----2--0-----2--0-----2--0---------|

A|---0~----0--2-----0--2-----0--2---------|
E|---------0--3-----0--3-----0--3---------|

CHORUS: This is played 2 times but there are some extra 
individual notes added in some places. These are the notes 
you use though and you can mess around with them if you want.

About the artist behind Economy Of Mercy Tab:

Switchfoot is an American alternative rock band from San Diego, California. The band's members are Jon Foreman (vocals, guitar), Tim Foreman (bass guitar, backing vocals), Chad Butler (drums, percussion), Jerome Fontamillas (guitar, keyboards, backing vocals), and Drew Shirley (guitar). Known for their energetic live shows[3][4][5][6], the three guitarists in the line-up often operate simultaneously, building on the pop sensibilities of Jon's songwriting, and, rounded out by Jerome's work on the synthesizer, bringing his industrial roots to the sound, the band works up "the Switchfoot sound"[7] - a melodic crunch of densely layered sound featuring some electronic experimentation, and often driven by hard-charging guitar riffs, while throwing in a few softer, spacey ballads as well.

Switchfoot first gained mainstream recognition after the inclusion of four of their songs in the 2002 movie A Walk to Remember. This recognition led to their major label debut, The Beautiful Letdown, which was released in 2003. It went on to sell over 2.6 million copies and produced the band's best-known singles, "Meant to Live" and "Dare You to Move".

According to Jon Foreman, the name "Switchfoot" is a surfing term. "We all love to surf and have been surfing all our lives so to us, the name made sense. To switch your feet means to take a new stance facing the opposite direction. It's about change and movement, a different way of approaching life and music".[8]
