Another classic by Mark Farner and company with the great Mel Schacher on bass. Mel 
throws a few different fills in here from chorus to chorus but I only transcribed one 
chorus to be repeated.

Tabbed by: BASSteve

Tuning: EADG

Time signature: 4/4

r = rest (listen for duration)
h = hammer on
/ = slide (low to high)
\ = slide (high to low)
()= note inside parenthesis not plucked or hammered on
{}= note inside pointed parenthesis still ringing from previous measure
||= measure gets repeated (see number of times above measure, e.g. 4x)


*My tabs are meant to be read in conjunction with listening to the song.
In other words, there are no specific notations to account for note/rest duration. 
However, you will find that I've made an attempt to strategically space the notes 
and rests within their respective measures in order to represent the appropriate 
durations.
