The Blues Brothers - Soul Man
Now I know this wasn't written by them, but this is the version in the movie, enjoy!

Tabbed by:Rob
E-mail:robert@designsolutionsusa.com

Regular tuning
/=slide, ^=bend, v=vibrato(vibrate the string), h=hold, note: the more "-" between each 
the more space in between picking!

Blues Brothers is one classic movie with John Belushi and Dan Akyroyd(I don't know how to spell Dan's last name.) you gotta love that movie. and Animal House, another good one.
