    A little reggaeish thang from 1978. The opening track for the album with the same name.

    Of course upon hearing this I want to play it. So, incase anyone has transcribed it, or has some ideas on the rough outline -> this thread.

    Thank you :bassist:

    Ok upon listening to it "with the right ear" it seems like it might be easy enough for me to transcribe

    So using my crude methods it looks like its in F# minor

    I think the verse is pretty much

    1 - - - 2 - - - 3 - - - 4 - - - 5 --- 6 --- 7 --- 8 ---
    F# - F# - - AC#B- - A-B-C#- - - B -B- D ...


    I am not solid on the "A-C#-B" - is it "A-D-C#" or varies or I'm tone deaf or I should plug in my bass instead of just string tone

    Chorus

    1 - 3 - 5 - 7 - |
    D - D - E - C# -|


    Some variations, little embellishments but that seems to be it, basically (?)

    heh my first transcript!
