    Here's a quick and fun tune, from Cee-Lo's 2010 album The Ladykiller. This has been all over the radio/internet lately and I didn't really pay it much attention, until I noticed that there's some cool stuff going on during the bridge.

    I'm not sure who the bass player is; they list 3 different guys on the album credits (one of whom is Pino Palladino, btw) but don't give credits for particular tracks. If anyone knows, please let me know!

    Anyway, check out a .pdf of the part here, or just go to the "Free" section of my website.

    Thanks for looking!
  2. I didn't know Pino was on there, awesome. I dig the song, really catchy haha. Thanks for the tab :)

    Thanks so much for transcribing this. I would have never gotten the bridge right!

    Hey Man, thanks for the awesome transcription!

    The only thing I have to point out is every time I've seen her play this she's on a 4 stringer (Tough hitting that low C ;) )

    Especially if you've got good keys in the band, that might get muddy!

    Obviously if you're playing on a 4 you'll have to go up an octave, but playing a 5-er just make sure the keys stay out of your register. The keys really should be in the middle register to carry the tune anyway, and the guitar is playing a completely different part so they're not going to get in the way of each other.

    In one instance when I played this, we didn't have good keys and I ended up moving up an octave to carry the tune.
