Ok... whew.... so much to say about this song. This is the Live in LA version,
I have never even listened to the CD veriosn before :). This tab is of now
for sure 90% correct, and I will continue to update it, but I wanted to get
it up as fast as I could without spending a month on it. I hope that
EVERYONE will see this tab purely as a template, nothing more. DO NOT
read it nore for  note, because you will not be playing how you probably
want to play it, and the rythm is not perfect, I know, but you don't need it
hopefull because you are reading this and listening to the song at the
same time. This is definately ADVANCED,  and is not for the moderate
player, especially since this tab is a template and requires some improvization.

About the artist behind Who Did You Think I Was 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.
