Song: You are the sunshine of my life
Artist: Stevie Wonder
Composer: Stevie Wonder
Album: Talking book
Tabbed by DJ
14th Mar 2016

I've tried to make an easy as possible guitar tab of this song,
so I'm not really trying to create a definitive version aimed
at all musicians. The voicings are the best combination I could
come up with, hopefully, none of the shapes are too much of a
stretch for a reasonably experienced guitarist.

NOTE: 
The Bm11/E and Cm11/F could be substituted by E7sus4 and F7sus4.
I just felt that the m11 chords just worked slightly better in
those two chorus progressions, but it's a very subtle difference.

CAPO: 2nd fret (Sounds in the key of B)

Chord names and fret positions are relative to the capo:
Amaj9  = x06600  E7     = 022130  F#     = 244322  Bb     = x13331
E7+    = 030110  E7sus4 = 020200  B      = x24442  F/Eb   = xx1211
A      = x02220  Amaj7  = x02120  F#m7   = 242222  Dm7    = xx0211
E/D    = xx0454  D6     = xx0202  B7     = x24242  E/Ab   = xx6454
C#m7   = x46454  D/E    = xx2232  E      = 022100  Cm7    = x35343
D#/G   = xx5343  G#m11  = 424422  F7sus4 = 131311  Cm11/F = 111311
Bm7    = x24232  C#7    = x46464  F7     = 131211  Bbmaj7 = x13231
Bm11/E = 024232

Amaj7              D6     D/E     G#m11      C#7
      Because you came to my res - cue,  oo, goo, woo - oo, goo,
F#              B        C#7      F#m7
    And I know that this must be    ...heaven,

nice work.

I really like the way you take Amaj9 and when you go from C#m7 to D#/G

The Question is if D6 is the best chord...hmmmm maybe Bm7 ( i have to think...)

Hello Diddy.
Yea your are right.. But when I play D6 using x,x,0,2,0,2 ...it always give me a "Fool on the Hill" ringing effect...This song is more Jazzy,,,maybe x,5,7,7,7,7 will do ?..Now we are deep into the details.
Can it be so that the guitar play Bm7 and the bass guitar a B note ??? I don+t know,
Lets go for D6.!
