Awesome song, Kool Thing using standard tuning EADGBE for "regular" guys n gals like me. 
You'll need a CAPO PLACED AT SECOND FRET in order to get the regular F sharp low chug and make it all work.
All notes are specified as if capo wasn't there- just clamp it on and play frets noted. 
It's fully tabbed and checked multiple times against the album version so you can set to to scroll and play along.
Silver lame pants optional but, for me, essential.
