                Celebration - Kool & The Gang
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Kool & The Gang
Celebration (1980)
(Kool & The Gang)
From: "Celebrate!"


It doesn't seem to make much sense to write the chords of the riff 
over the lyrics, so I tabbed these parts out.
Come on and celebrate - you can even do it on an acoustic. Enjoy!
