Song: Shining Star
Artist: Earth Wind and Fire
Album: The Best of Earth Wind and Fire

This is such a great song. I was disappointed not to find
any EWF tabs anywhere, so I put this up.  Thanks to my
guitar teacher Mark Heinneman who helped me figure out
this song.

^ bend
play the riff with a funky rhythm and mute the notes with your palm

Play with funk rhythm

E9
When you wish upon a star,
E9
Dreams will take you very far,
E9
But when you wish upon a dream,
E9
Life ain't always what it seems

E9
What'd you see, on night of clear,
E9
In the sky, so very dear

A7                    D9
You're a shining star,
G7                    C9
No matter who you are
A7                     D9
Shining bright to see,
G7                      C9
What you could truly be.

Solo

Shining star comes into view,
To shine its watchful light on you.
Give you strength to carry,
Make your body big and strong.

Born a man-child of the sun,
Saw work had just begun,
Found I had to stand alone,
Bless it now I've got my own

So if you find yourself in need
Listen to these words of heed
Be a giant, or grain of sand
Words of wisdom, yes I can

You're a shining star
No matter who you are,
Shining bright to see,
What you can truly be (repeat)

Shining star for you to see
What your life can truly be (repeat 3 times)

I'm pretty sure this is closer for the palm muted guitar part:
