That's it!!!  I'm not sure of the exactity of this tab, but I tried 
to get it as close as I couldI love this song because Jars of Clay 
always uses great melodies, and this particular song has great drums 
(especially when they are saying "any other you").  Jars of Clay is 
definitely one of my favorite bands.

great tab!! thanks a lot!

oh yah --> (your d3 chord is actually called a d7)

triebark - 2015-10-22

Just scrolling old charts and this one caught my eye. The fingering for what's been labeled D2 should probably be called a Dmaj9. The C# on the B string is a major 7th and the open e string is the 2nd or 9th, whichever you want to call it. D2 really would be xx0230, though since your removing the F# from the chord you could also call it D2no3, but most people don't. Also the Em2 as listed is really an Em7 just with a doubled 3rd (G on the e string). An Em2 would have to have an F# as one of it's notes like 024000. OK I'll get off my theory horse now...

All that said, I think the fingerings given sound spot on.
