Higher Ground (12' Vocal Mix)
Bassist - Flea
Original Composition by Stevie Wonder

This tab is NOT perfect because I'm just not skilled enough to hear all the notes Flea plays.
Any help would be much appreciated!

this is a good effort, I don't think the people above realise that it's for a different version of higher ground.

most likely isn't played in Eb tuning even thoughthe song is in Eb, as I can't hear any open low Ebs in the song.
