This song is from the album "They Only Come Out at Night" (which was probably a reference
albinos, being that they cannot be in the sun - Edgar Winter, of course, is an albino).
people know this song as being performed by Rick Derringer (bass and vocals) as a member 
The Edgar Winter Group, however, this song was actually written and recorded (bass)
Dan Hartman. Fantastic bass line - have fun!

Tabbed by: BASSteve

Tuning: EADG

Time signature: 4/4

r = rest (listen for duration)
/ = slide (low to high)
()= note inside parenthesis not plucked or hammered on
{}= note inside pointed parenthesis still ringing from previous measure
||= measure gets repeated (see number of times above measure, e.g. 4x)


*My tabs are meant to be read in conjunction with listening to the song.
In other words, there are no specific notations to account for note/rest duration.
However, you will find that I've made an attempt to strategically space the notes
and rests within their respective measures in order to represent the appropriate
durations.

Correction/clarification on your introduction: Dan Hartman wrote the song, but did not play bass on the studio recording. It was one of the first two songs recorded for the album, before Dan Hartman was moved from guitar to bass and Chuck Ruff was hired as drummer. Bass on the recording was played by Randy Jo Hobbs, and drums were Johnny Badanajeke, who both also played on "We All Had a Real Good Time." The rest of the album had Hartman on bass (as well as other instruments) and Ruff on drums. I don't do tabs so I can't comment on that.
