  THE HONEYCOMBS - HAVE I THE RIGHT (Ken Howard & Alan Blaikley)


Tabbed by: David Adamec
Standard* Tuning:  E-A-D-G-B-e

  This is tabbed from the recording that appears on the British Invasion CD series.  On that recording, the
guitars are tuned about half a semitone sharp of standard tuning.  There are versions on YouTube that also
have this sharp tuning.  I suspect the sharp tuning is a speed up of the tape to increase tempo.  I mention
this for those who might play along with the recording and notice the tab sounds flat.

  For the fingering on this tab, I referred to the lip-sync version of the song from the 1965 
theater-released, Pop Gear.  I assume the lead guitarist mimicked the fingering he used on 
the recording in the video.  Though at times, the fingering is out of view in the video.  Also, the triads 
in the intro and verses are played more arpeggio style than a standard strum. The chorus triads are a 
normal strum.

  Rhythm is not my strong suit, but I believe the recording is near 192 beats per minute. Chords for the 
rhythm guitar can be found elsewhere on this site.

   For amp settings, I found a clean amp with a Jangle Box switched to bright mode produced a very good 
likeness.  For those without a Jangle Box, boosting the treble and adding some compression 
should also work.

2nd verse lyrics

Have I the right to touch you.
If I could you'd see how much you
send those shivers running down my spine.  Oh..Oh..Oh..Oh..Oh
Have I the right to thrill you.
You know I'll wait until you
give me the right to make you mine.

3rd verse is a repeat of the 1st

notation:
