Song: Master blaster (Jammin')
Artist: Stevie Wonder
Composer: Stevie Wonder 
Album: Hotter than July
Tabbed by DJ
3th May 2016

CAPO: 1st fret (Sounds in the key of Cm)
Alternatively, to make the tab sections easier to follow,
tune all strings up a half-step to F-A#-D#-G#-C-F instead,
it will still sound in Cm.

Although this is mostly a chord version, there is no
real alternative to tablature for the riff breaks.
For a single guitarist, kicking in an effects pedal like the
Boss OC-2 for those unison breaks could be affective.

Chord names and fret positions are relative to the capo:
Bm = x24432   F# *  = xx4322
A  = 577655   F#7/E = xx2322
G  = 355433   E7/D  = xx0100
F# = 244322   E7/B  = x20100
E  = 022100

As an alternative to the chord progression:
F# -F#7/E -E7/D -E7/B 
It could be just played as bass notes instead,
as below:

[Verse 1]
Bm                             A G
    Everyone's feeling pretty,     it's hotter than July,
F#  E
       Though the world's full of problems,
               Bm                      A
They couldn't touch us, even if they tried,
Bm
       From the park I hear rhythms,
A  G
       Marley's hot on the box,
F#  E
       Tonight there will be a party,
        Bm                        A
On the corner at the end of the block!


[Chorus]
            Bm              F#7                        E7
Didn't know you...would be jammin' until the break of dawn,
                   F#  F#7/E  E7/D     E7/B
I'll bet you no - body  ever  told you that...
Bm                F#7                       E7
You ...would be jammin' until the break of dawn,
           F#          F#7/E        E7/D    E7/B Bm
You'd be jammin', and jammin', and jammin', jam  on!

[Verse 2]
Bm                                         A  G
     They want us to join their fighting,
                     F# E
But our answer today    ...is to let all our worries,
          Bm                                   A
Like the breeze through our fingers, slip a - way,
Bm
       Peace has come to Zimbabwe,
A  G
       Third World's right on the one,
F#  E
       Now's the time for celebration,
              Bm             A
'Cause we've only just be - gun!


[Chorus]

Didn't know you...would be jammin' until the break of dawn,
           F#   F#7/E  E7/D     E7/B
Since no - body  ever  told you that...

You ...would be jammin' until the break of dawn,

    You ask me am I happy,      well, as matter of fact,
F# E
      I can say that I'm ecstatic,
          Bm               A
'Cause we all just made a pact,
