About this tab version
The main guitar line is correct (finally). Uses a capo on the 3rd fret, which is the reason why no other version gets it correct. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Happy Mondays – Kinky Afro

Capo on 3rd fret for the lead guitar. This was the trick to figuring this out. 
All fret numbers relative to the capo. Slightly overdriven guitar. 
You want the open note on the B string to sound dirty.


Start out with the Rhythm Guitar (no capo):

    Bb               Gm
e|--6--6-6-6--6--6---6--6-6--6-6-6-6----------|
B|--6--6-6-6--6--6---8--8-8--8-8-8-8----------|
G|--7--7-7-7--7--7---7--7-7--7-7-7-7----------|
D|--8--8-8-8--8--8---8--8-8--8-8-8-8----------|
A|--------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------|

Lead guitar line (capo on 3rd), comes in after the Bb and Gm are played once
e|---------------------------------------------------|
B|-------0-------0------------------0------0---------|
G|-----------------------------0---------------------|  repeat 16 times
D|--9b10----7b8-----5------5-------------------------| play during chorus
A|-----------------------7-------7------7------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------|


Variation of lead guitar line (maybe alternating with the above)
e|---------------------------------------------------|
B|-------0-------0------------------0----------------|
G|-----------------------------0-----------0---------|
D|--9b10----7b8-----5------5-------------------------|
A|-----------------------7-------7-----7-----7-------|
E|---------------------------------------------------|

You can play around with variation of that final pattern, but that’s basically it.


The string bending riff after the chorus:
e|---------------------------------------------------|
B|--2-----3------5-----5-----5-----5-----5-----------|
G|--4b6---5b7----7b9---7b9---7b9---7b9---7b9---------| repeat four times
D|---------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------|


Then, play the lead guitar 12 more times

Solo (around 2:35, after second chorus and string bending riff)

e|--12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12---10--10-10-|
B|--13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13---11--11-11-|
G|--15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15---12--12-12-| repeat four times
D|--------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------| 
E|--------------------------------------------|

The song ends on the lead guitar line played another dozen times
