			     Mr. Big Stuff - Jean Knight
------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: Standard
Artist: Jean Knight (Bassist: Vernie Robbins of the "Chimneyville Express Rhythm Section")
Song: Mr. Big Stuff
Album: Mr. Big Stuff (1971)

Riff A - "Mr. Big Stuff..."
G|---------------------------------------|
D|--------------5-6---6-6--8-8--8-6------|
A|--6---6-6---6--------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------|

Riff B - "Now because you wear..."
G|---------------------------------------|
D|--------------5-6---6-6----------------|
A|--6---6-6---6-----------------3-5------|
E|-------------------------6--6----------|

Bridge
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------10--8--------------------------------------6--8--8---8-8-8-6--|
A|----------10--------10-8-8---------8-----10--3(3)3--5-6--------------------|
E|--8--8--8------------------5-6-6-8---6-8-----------------------------------|


The order is as follows:

Riff A x 4
Riff B x 3
Riff A x 3
Riff B x 3
Riff A x 3
Bridge x 1
Riff B x 3
Riff A until end

Listen to the recording to figure out the exact timing. 
I like to improvise a little especially with Riff A & B. 
So have fun and long live the funk!

On the bridge, the 10 at 10--3(3)3--5-6 should be 11. I find it easier to play this way:


G|------------------|
D|--6---------------|
A|-------------5-6--|
E|------8---8-------|
