                             Green Onions - Booker T and the MG's
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Lance (greendayrocksu)
Email: greendayrocksu@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

The intro is an organ.

He hits these chords for about 27 seconds.

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------2-------------8--------------14--------------8----------2----------|
D|----3-- (x4)-----8---(x2)------14-----(x1)------8----------3-------------|
A|--3-----------6------------12----------------6----------3----------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Riff A:

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------11---------------------------|
A|-------------11------------------1111---4-------(x2)---------------------|
E|--1111---4------(x4)-----------------------------------------------------|


e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

A|-------------11---------1111---4------(x1)--------------11---------------|
E|--1111---4------(x2)------------------------11111---4------(x2)----------|

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

A|--3333---6------(x1)----1111---4------(x1)--------------11---------------|
E|---------------------------------------------1111---4-------(x2)---------|

Play this again. Note that when the numbers are close together, he plays it fast, I 
quite tell you the rhythm, you would just have to listen to the song.

Now for the guitar solo:

e|------------------------------------1----4---6b--------------------------|
B|----------------1-------4b6--44rb------------------1---------------------|
G|--b^3rb-p-1-------3b-----------------------------------3b3bp1------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------1---------------------1-----------------------|
G|--1--------11h3p1-----1h3----3-----1--3--1--3b------3b--3b---------------|
D|-----33-----------------------------------------------------3------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--1----------------------6--4b--4b--2---(x2)----1------------------------|
G|----3b--3b--1--(x4)--------------------------------3b--3b--1---(x2)------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--8---6b--6b--4-----6---4b--4b--2----1-----------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------3b--3b--1--(x2)------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Now go back to Riff A.
Then, after that, play the first few lines of the solo:

e|------------------------------------1----4---6b--------------------------|
B|----------------1-------4b6--44rb------------------1---------------------|
G|--b^3rb-p-1-------3b-----------------------------------3b3bp1------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then end it by going:
e|-11-\--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-11-\--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| +  harmonic
| x  Mute note
| b^ Pre-Bend
