    A little help!!! Anybody got a tab for this great tune. I don't have enough time to figure it out before the weekend. :help:
     
  2. The basic riff that is on the roots and grooves cd is

    ---------------
    ---------2-3-4
    -5-0-3-5------
    --------------- with ad libbing the 2nd half of each bar

    eg - making it up here, this is not what is on the record but hey..
    ------------------------------I--------------------5-----5
    ---------2-3-4----------------I----------2-3-4------------
    -5-0-3-5------ 0-2-0-3-0-4-0-I-5-0-3-5--------0-3--3-3--
    ------------------------------I---------------------------

    Then the Chorus is all in G7

    Easy and a great tune - good luck

    You can slap it if you want, but it's a fingerstyle groove, and a dang fat funky one at that.
    Slap is like pepper - it makes some things better, but it doesn't make *everything* better.
     
  6. Don't matter if its slapped or fingerstyle, it's the same notes.

    The version above that we cover is a result of listening to the slapped style of one Rodney Skeet Curtis on roots and grooves and I slap it when i play it. The older versions are fingerstyle but it is the same notes and all phunky as pheck.
     
  7. ...to all.

    After training it during 1hr, I got it in fingerstyle and slap version!

    Very pleasant to play!

    Cool - it is one bad*ss groove to add to your repertoire!
