Here is a version of the intro/verse of tab for Jack Johnson's "Do you remember":

Intro:
DMaj AMaj GMaj DMaj
e|---------------|-------------5-x-x-----|-----------3-x-x-----|-----------5-x-x-|
B|---------------|-------------5-x-x-----|-----------3-x-x-----|-----------7-x-x-|
G|-------------7-|-----7-------6-x-x-----|-----------4-x-x-----|-----------7-x-x-|
D|-------------7-|-7h9---9-7---7-x-x-----|-----------5-x-x-----|-----------7-x-x-|
A|------5-7-5--5-|-------------7-x-x-----|-7/9-7-5---5-x-x-----|-----5-7-5-5-x-x-|
E|--5/7----------|-----------5-5-x-x-(5)-|---------3-3-x-x-(3)-|-5/7-------5-x-x-|

01. What does it mean when it reads 5/7 and 7/9?
02. (5) or (3) means ?
03. 5-7?
05. How does one do a muted palm, if that's what the x above means?

This is a cool song and I'm dying to learn how to play it--Jack Johnson rocks. :o)

Cheers,

01. What does it mean when it reads 5/7 and 7/9?
Answer: thats a slide. You basically start at the 5th fret, play the note and slide your finger all the way to the 7th fret.
02. (5) or (3) means ?
Play that note and let it ring for a certain duration of time...depending on song...
03. 5-7?
Play the 5th fret and then immediatly play the 7th afterwards.
Thats a hammer-on...Play the 7th fret and hammer on to the 9th.
05. How does one do a muted palm, if that's what the x above means?
Place the palm of your picking hand on the part just where the strings go into the saddles. It should produce a chunky sound. Those Xs however mean you must mute those strings so that no sound comes out...think of Smells like Teen Spirit, its quite prominent in the intro...

Hope this helps

Anything that is too stupid to be spoken is sung
