Good Times

Tuning:EADGBe

Other tabs almost got it right but failed to get the correct chord voicings.
The percussive mutes are just as important as the notes you're playing so practice 
hitting them consistently with a metronome.

The general structure of the song is as follows:

Chorus

However, the chords should never be played as a whole; Nile Rodgers tends to hit his 
strings in groups of three.
As other tabs suggest, interchanging the Em11 with a Dsus2 without the root can sound nice.
