Get Up (I Feel Like Being A Sex Machine)
BY: James Brown
FROM: James Brown: Star Time (Disc 3: Soul Brother No. 1)
TABBED BY: Alex Brown (eclipse1@bestweb.net)

When I first searched the OLGA for James Brown stuff, I was shocked to see that no one had tabbed these 
so here it goes... This is a funk essential. Everyone should know this song. It is very, very simple, yet 
funky. Great to jam to.

INTRO
E--11--11--11--11--11--11--11--|
B--11--11--11--11--11--11--11--|
G------------------------------|
D------------------------------|
A------------------------------|
E------------------------------|

The rest of the song is basically in two parts... The normal verse and the bridge.

NORMAL VERSE - (PART ONE: This is repeated about 30 times, so listen to the album for time changes)
E--6----6----8----6--|
B--6----6----6----6--|
G--------------------|
D--------------------|
A--------------------|
E--------------------|

BRIDGE - (This is also repeated a lot, so listen to the album for time changes)
E--13----11--9--10--11--|
B--13----11--9--10--11--|
G-----------------------|
D-----------------------|
A-----------------------|
E-----------------------|

Now, they go back into the normal verse, but first they play this intro to the regular verse:

BACK INTO REGULAR VERSE (Not sure on this part, it doesn't sound right so, someone please help me!)
E--6--6--6--6--6--6--6--|
B--6--6--6--6--6--6--6--|
G-----------------------|
D-----------------------|
A-----------------------|
E-----------------------|

Back to regular verse now, but first chord played only once:

REGULAR VERSE - (PART TWO: Check album for time changes)
E--6----8----6--|
B--6----6----6--|
G---------------|
D---------------|
A---------------|
E---------------|

This part played to finish song. Play the same thing as the
BACK TO REGULAR VERSE part. I am unsure that is the right chord however, so someone please help me out!
So there you have it. A great funky groove. This is my first tab, so any suggestions are appreciated. My

Those chords are 9th chords. They look like:

--11-- THey are common chords used alot in funk. The tritone
--11-- (which is a dissonant interval) between the 5th and 4th
--11-- strings might be kinda hard to play cleanly, but it is
--10-- important because it gives the chord its funky sound.
