Author
Artist: Larry Carlton
Track: Bubble Shuffle
Album: On Solid Ground (1989)
Tabbed by: pedal2


This is early stages with this tab so not every voicing or run may be 100%
correct yet.
I've tried to give some rhythm information by noting where the beats and 8th
notes fall but it fell apart a bit for the solo. You'll probably need to
listen to the track to get it right. I've left stuff like vibrato out
because I'm assuming you won't need that if you're learning this :P.


Suggested voicings for verse rhythm:
A(9):   x024xx and x022xx
F#m(9): 246xxx and 244xxx
F9:     135xxx
G9:     357xxx

Tempo: 95bpm, swung 16ths

Notes:
1. This lick tends to vary on the repeats.
2. Uses double stops here 2nd time around.
3. 2nd time around play the octaves together Wes Montgomery style.
4. I think he flubbed this - it's just picking noise. This'll fit or make up
   your own lick here.
5. Hit 14 then slide up from 12 to 13.
6. No reason why you couldn't move this a position down, as long as you're
   comfortable bending 3 semitones on the first string.


Hope this was helpful. Comments, corrections and (constructive) criticism are
welcome.

Key:
b = bend to sound at pitch after 'b'
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
trip = 16th note triplet
trip 8ths = 8th note triplet
straight = play notes without swing feel
