		     Mister Magic - Grover Washington Jr.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Bobby Ray
Email: drawmorezombies@yahoo.com

Tuning: Standard

This is a really fun song to jam on (and it goes back and forth between Cm7 and
F9 so no worries about improvising over complex chord changes). It seemed like
the other version of this song was pretty close, but not quite right on the the
riffing and some of the chords. I'm still a little uncertain about phrase 4
because the guitar is pretty quiet at that point, but I think what I've come up
with is pretty close. Take note that I don't use a pick, and use my thumb and 
three fingers to pluck. Some of the rhythm parts may look kind of funky, but 
try playing them with a pick and blending some of the articulation together.

=============================================================

Hopefully this isn't too hard to read, but basically the song starts with
Phrase 1 4 times (drums and base come in after the first 2). Then guitar comes
in and plays all parts of Phrase 2, but only plays part a and b the second time
(note that the guitarist changes this up throughout the song, this is only a
template), and you should get the rest from there. Enjoy!

(Intro)
Phrase 1 x 4

(Head)
Phrase 2.a.b.c
Phrase 2.a.b
Phrase 2.a.b.c
Phrase 3
Phrase 2.a
Phrase 4
Phrase 2.a.b
Phrase 5.a.b x 2
Phrase 5.a.c

(Solos)
Phrase 1 - repeat throughout, then end on Phrase 5.c
