Song: YOU CAN´T TOUCH THIS
Artist: MC HAMMER
Album: PLEASE HAMMER, DON´T HURT THEM
--------------------

Standard tuning

Comments: I forget who requested this but here it is. The main 
Riff is based on Rick Janes old song Super Freak and comes in 
two variants. Since I didn´t find any pattern to how they are 
used (I just listened to the song once) I´ve just listed them 
here. Alternate them at will. The second part, the breakdown, 
is harder to play because this "bass" is played by a synth on 
the album. The line though is here. Make sure those hammer-ons
and pull-offs are fluid.

Key:
/    = slide up
\    = slide down
b    = bend (whole step)
b^   = bend (1/2 step)
b^^  = bend (1 1/2 steps)
pb   = pre-bend
r    = release-bend
t    = tap with righthand finger
h    = hammer-on
p    = pull-off
~    = Vibrato
*    = Natural Harmonic
#(#) = Trill
x    = Dead notes (no pitch)
P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)
Tp   = Tap w\plectrum
