Hey guys!

This is Stevie Wonder's MasterBlaster (jammin') a great, and simple, song.

UPDATE: 28/3/08: Fixed some lesser mistakes

So, as you probably know, the song starts out with some drums. Then the guitar and bass 
like this:

[Intro]

E|-----------------------------------------------|
H|-----------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------|
D|-----10-10----10-10---8-8----6-6----6-6---5-5--|
A|-----10-10----10-10---8-8----6-6----6-6---5-5--|
E|-8-8-------8-8-----6-6----4-4----4-4----3------|

E|-----------------------------------------------|
H|-----------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------|
D|----3-3----3-3----3-3------10-10----8-8--------|
A|----3-3----3-3----3-3------10-10----8-8--------|
E|1-1-----1-1----1-1-----8-8-------6-6-----------|

After doing this one time, the bass keeps grooving that ^ while the guitar shifts to this


[Verse]

E|--8---8---6-----4----4----3----1----1----1----8---6---|
H|--x---x---x-----x----x----x----x----x----x----x---x---|
G|--8---8---6-7---4-5--4-5--3-4--1-2--1-2--1-2--8---6-7-|
D|------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------|

At 0.41 there's some sort of solo that is actually not played with a guitar, but it's 
easy and sounds just as good:

[Solo-thing]
E|---------------11-----8----------|------------8---13---15---11-----|
H|------------13-----------9-------|------10---------------------13--|
G|--------12-----------------8-----|--10---------------------------12|
D|---13-------------------------10-|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|

E|-13--10--------------------------|
H|---------11----------------------|
G|-------------10------------------|
D|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------|

Then the verse finally begins, and the guitar goes back to the verse-riff:

[Verse 0.55]

 Everyone's feeling pretty..
E|--8---8---6-----4----4----3----1----1----1----8---6---|
H|--x---x---x-----x----x----x----x----x----x----x---x---|

E|---8----6-----1------------------|
H|---8----6-----1------------------|
G|---8----6-7---1-2----------------|

After the chorous he's says something that ends with 'come on!' and then somekind of 
begins:

Why is your tuning a H (EADGHE)? I think you meant a B Right? Because there is no H in the tone system

In Norway and some other countries we say H instead of B and B instead of Bb. I know it's stupid, but that's how things are.

Bro, your Intros fine, but the Chorus is soooo off....
Solo is great tho. But the prechorus and chorus make no sense
