                           Get Free - Major Lazer
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Epicnic (correction by ssh5d)

Check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90lYd5udm6o for my own mini version
of this reggae influenced song.

Tuning: standard (E A D G B E)

Main riff throughout the whole song.
Based on the G - A - Bm - G chord
progression. This sounds like it is played on a muted bass one octave higher
than written here but sounds good enough on guitar if you play it like this.
There are variations on this theme throughout the song. Just make you own
but try to accentuate the up beat to give it that reggae vibe.

Thanks for your correction. It's hard to hear it right with all the effects on it but I noticed it didn't sound just right and with the corrections you made it sounds better. Thanks ;)

Actually... there's a couple of extra notes in there in your second line. But yeah again, thanks for the start both of you!

Haven't bothered with the timing but the notes are correct.
