"Don't be There"
by Switchfoot

To get the sound that Jon gets on the record, hit the low E string first,
then strum a hard E chord and mute all the strings with a slap, then
quickly move your middle and ring finger over to play an A2, keeping your
pointer finger on the G# (third string, first fret).  Pull off on the A2
and let the guitar resonate.

This song is tuned down one whole step. To get Jon's sound, simply tune your guitar down to DGCFAD and then play the chords as they are tabbed out here. The chords are not wholly correct but theay are close.
