    The last two bands I played did this song. Its quite easy. I have it somewhere in my stack of music. I will try and dig it out and send it if you want it.
  5. i'll take it

    i find the band to be complex in its simplicity......you gotta be a really tight band to sound that loose.....

    it's a-d-a-d-e, with the transitions to each note a 1/2 step walk up (as in Ab > A....Db > D)

    then the chorus (same deal)

    a-d-e-g (take up to the g on the a, then the low G on the E string...then the funky clav part comes in...)
    then the a-whoo-hooo....


    it's all in the feel. Use your ears. Play along. Super easy.

    My band is working this up - the bass part is pretty straightforward - the harder part is getting into a good groove with the drummer.

    Just a suggestion...

    Why not post it to a download site so everyone can get access to it. It would make it easier for us and for you.

    Just FYI.

    I'd also like a copy. I've got it down, for the most part, but I'd like to get the chorus a little tighter. Thank you.

    There's a F#min right before the G on the walk up...

    I know that part. I need help with the walk lines in the chorus. Thank you very much, though.

    Couldn't agree more. It's like a jug saw puzzle....all these very simple parts fitting together just right. Proves how complex "simple" can be when done right.
