^ Nope. it's hard. he was being a dick.

Another song by John Mayer that is good to get the slapping part figured out is called sucker.

I don't think there is a tab for it on this site, and its unreleased song. search for it on google, if you can't find it, shoot me a PM and i'll help you out.

john mayer has a bunch of songs like this. You could try Heart Of Life for an easier one. If you get that one down, maybe try Stop This Train.

'Why Georgia' really most all of John Mayer's acoustic work has a slap in it. But like said, be careful with Neon the difficulty is in the picking, not the slap.
But when you do need it, here is John's very own tab.
