War Of My Life by John Mayer – Intro Tab

I’m not much for mainstream music these days, but one bestselling album that I found well worth a listen is John Mayer’s “Battle Studies”. The guitar parts are never flashy and add a new dimension to each song. One of my favorites is “War of my Life”. The intro is simple and spacious, but powerful.

A low G is going to make this sound best. It’s in the key of E and like many of Mayer’s songs, seems to fit well on the ‘ukulele.

The chords are super simple too, but I found I had to transpose them up a few steps to sing it easier:
