    If you change the font to courier new, it looks better. Or, if you have it as a .txt file, attach it. All theses options are available if you click "post reply."

    Tab for mustang Sally by Wilson Pickett

    Verse/chorus
    Play the section in C which starts with an upbeat on the B 4 times followed by the section in F with the E upbeat 4 times then back to the C section for 4 times.

    G|------------------|-----------------|

    A|---2h3------------|--2h3-----------|
    E|---------2h3--1---|-------2h3--1---|

    G|------------------|-----------------|
    D|---2h3-------1--1|---2h3------1--1-|
    A|--------2h3----3--|-------2h3---3--|
    E|------------------|-----------------|

    Breakdown bit!

    G|-----------------|--------------------|----3---3h5-3----
    D|--5----3---5-5---|---3h4h5-3h4h5--5-|--5---5-------3-5
    A|------3-3--------|--------------------|------------------
    E|------------------|-------------------|------------------

    and thats that! couldnt find it tabbed anywhere so i thaught id tab it as its a class tune to groove to. Listen to the song to hear the different parts and where they come in. The break down bit isnt exact to the song but it works and it grooves well. this my first tab despite having been playing for years so yeah.....Enjoy
