Tabbed by: FunknFresh	
Let’s Work 
By Prince from “Controversy” (1981)

-This is the main structure of the song though of course there 
are a few things that change ie., bass line does some funky 
random things that I haven’t outlined. This sounds great with 
at least 2 guitar players.

-Bass b) is played at the end of the second time the 
main bass line (Bass a)) is played during the chorus.

-All parts transcribed for guitar
