Super Freak
-Rick James
Bass

This is the intro and during the verses:
G|-----------------------||
D|-0---------------------||
A|---3-2-0--------2-0----||
E|----------0--3---------||

G|-----------------------||
D|-0---------------------||
A|---3-2-0--------2-0----||
E|----------0--3---------||

Play that until the chorus part goes like this:
“That girl’s pretty wild now; the girl’s a super freak…”

During which, you play this:
G|-----------------------||
D|-----------------------||
A|-3-3-2-0--3-----3-0----||
E|-------------3---------||

G|-----------------------||
D|-----------------------||
A|-3-3-2-0--3-----3-0----||
E|-------------3---------||

Then for the “she’s alright” part, do this:
G|-----------------------||
D|-----------------------||
A|-----0-------0-------0-||
E|-1-3-----1-3-----1-3---||

That last “she’s alright” (which is actually “the girl’s alright”), just before Rick 
“with me” you play this:
G|-----------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------1---------------|
A|-0---------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------1-------0-----|

Then you go back to this riff for “she’s a super freak, super freak, she’s super freaky, yow”.
G|-----------------------||
D|-0---------------------||
A|---3-2-0--------2-0----||
E|----------0--3---------||

G|-----------------------||
D|-0---------------------||
A|---3-2-0--------2-0----||
E|----------0--3---------||

Repeat everything here for the next verses and choruses and what-not.
Then when the saxophone comes in, play this…
G|-----------------------||
D|-----------------------||
A|-3-3-2-0--3-----3-0----||
E|-------------3---------||

G|-----------------------||
D|-----------------------||
A|-3-3-2-0--3-----3-0----||
E|-------------3---------||
…then after a while, start to fade out.


It’s a pretty easy song, actually.

just noting... on the main riff it might be funner for some people to go
5-3-2-0
instead of
0-
-3-2-0
it gives you the option to throw in some funky slides here and there.

that last "the girls allright" I think that maybe a F octave pop then F to E, not D# F then E...?
