"Get Busy"
set tempo
Get Busy is probably Sean Paul's most famous song. it has a repeating chord sequence of
> G/E > F#/E > F/E throughout. its the chromatic transition of these chords that gives
song its tension-filled, serious sound. On the recording you can hear them being played 
an organ, but an acoustic guitar will do just fine, provided you have a good strumming
This is how I play them:

     Em              G/E            F#/E          F/E

 0 2 2 0 0 0     0 5 5 4 3 X    0 4 4 3 2 X   0 3 3 2 1 X

the fingering may look strange, but its a smooth transition going from the G/E > F#/E >
since all you're doing is just sliding down the fretboard. In addition to the chords,
is a dissonent melody that is played during the intro and the chorus. Again on the 
recording a keyboard is used, but it sounds pretty cool on an electic guitar with heavy distortion:

      Em          G/E                F#/E        F/E

      Q.      E   E   E   E   E      Q.      E   E   E   E   E

these 2 bars just repeat over and over. You can mess around in the key of Em like I do
create some wicked improvisions. rock on!
