This is a great romantic one-hit wonder song from the '70s. It is a shame
that the only reason Minnie Riperton is a one-hit wonder is due to the fact
that she died from breast cancer, thus silencing her amazing voice. If she
would have lived longer she would have been known as the queen of soft rock.
This is a great song for any beginner who needs work on their major and
minor 7 chords. Oh yeah, the guitar is in standard tuning and be sure to
listen to the song first for timing and the pace of the song. And finally,
please be sure to rate when you have made your final judgement.

-sidenote- At the end of the song, Minnie pays tribute to her daughter
SNL actress Maya Rudolph

And that should be that for Lovin' You by the late great Minnie Riperton.
Originally the song is finger picked but I'm still working on it. But for now 
it works as a great song for beginners. Plus it works well as a solo 
acoutic guitar and a vocalist who can try and reach those awsome high notes.
And once again, please rate after you make your judgement on this tab.

-I hope you enjoy; my little droogies.

Thanks for the beautiful chord progression; but just because Minnie recorded only one song that appeals to the mainstream, and by that, I do mean, white pop audiences doesn't make her a one-hit wonder. She remains the queen of soul-R&B-jazz fusion, as well as, vocal range, to those who listened to her music.
