I tabbed this song from a live performace. Its really accurate, and sorry for the solo
not being tabbed. There are alot of versions of him playing it live, so I didnt bother
to tab the solo from just one. So I provided a scale so that you can improv and figure 
out yourself :-)

Key:

h -Hammer On
p -Pull Off
~ -Vibrato
/ -Slide Up
 -Slide Down

Intro

e----------5--5------------|
b----------5--6--3--3------|
g----------5--5--5--4------|
d------5-7-7--7--3--5------|
a-(5)/7----------5--5------|
E----------------3--3------|

e---------------------------------|
b---------------------------------|
g---------------------------------|
d---------------------------------|
a-5/7-75--3--------3--5h7-3h5~---|
E------------5-3-4h5--------------|
This riff can be shuffled in between each line in the verses if you want. But its mainly 
after the intro is played once.

Verse's

"I can feel your body.."
"I can see your face.."
e--5--5------------|
b--5--6--3--3------|
g--5--5--5--4------|
d--7--7--3--5------|
a--------5--5------|
E--------3--3------|


Pre Chorus

"And its making me so angry.."
e-------5--5--5--5------------------|
b(1)(0)-5--5--5--5-(1)(0)(1)(1)-----|
g-2--1--5--5--5--5--2--1--2--1------|
d-1--0--7--6--5--4--1--0--1--0------|
a-3--2--------------3--2--3--2------|
E-1--0--------------1--0--1--0------|


Chorus

"Old love.."
e--5--5------------|
b--5--6--3--3------|
g--5--5--5--4------|
d--7--7--3--5------|
a--------5--5------|
E--------3--3------|


Solo

Soloing Scale

e------------------5-8-----|
b---------------5-8--------|
g----------5-7-8-----------|
d-------5-7----------------|
a----5-7-------------------|
E-5-8----------------------|
John uses this scale and moves it up to the 12th fret.

12th Position

e--------------------------12-15--|
b---------------------12-15-------|
g----------------12-14------------|
d-----------12-14-----------------|
a------12-14----------------------|
E-12-15---------------------------|
Play the chorus after the solo, and play then fade as the outro.

This took a long time to tab so enjoy!! :-)

About the artist behind Old Love Tab:

John Clayton Mayer (surname pronunciation: /ˈmeɪ.jɜr/[1]) (born October 16, 1977) is an American singer-songwriter. Originally from Connecticut, he attended Berklee College of Music before moving to Atlanta, Georgia, in 1998, where he refined his skills and gained a following. His first two studio albums, Room for Squares and Heavier Things, did well commercially, achieving multi-platinum status. In 2003, he won a Best Male Pop Vocal Performance Grammy for "Your Body Is a Wonderland".

Mayer began his career performing mainly acoustic rock and pop, but gradually began a transition towards the blues genre in 2005 by collaborating with renowned blues artists such as B. B. King and Eric Clapton, and by forming the John Mayer Trio. The blues influence can be heard on his album Continuum, released in September 2006. At the 49th Annual Grammy Awards in 2007 Mayer won Best Pop Vocal Album for Continuum and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for "Waiting on the World to Change". Mayer's career pursuits have extended to stand-up comedy, design, and writing; he has written pieces for magazines, most notably for Esquire. He is also involved in philanthropic activities through his "Back to You" fund and his concern over global warming.
