Artist: Rick James
Album: Come Get It (Gordy/Motown Records 1978)
Song: Mary Jane
Tabbed by witmachine@yahoo.com

Intro has two guitars playing just about the same thing one has some 
crunchy distortion and the other guitar is clean.  
I tabbed out the Synth, as well.  There's a lot of keyboards on this...
The Verse is a two chord vamp and the solo is played over the same riff as the verse.

INTRO:
Synth.
