Song: Higher ground
Artist: Stevie Wonder
Composer: Stevie Wonder
Album: Innervisions

Tabbed by DJ ('DiddyD' on ultimateGuitar.com)
2nd May 2016

CAPO: 1st fret (Will then sound in the key of Eb)

Chord names and fret positions are relative to the capo:
D = xx0232   E   = 022100   C9 = x32330
F = 133211   A   = 577655   D7 = xx0212
G = 355433   F#7 = 242322   E7 = 022130
             G7  = 353433

To add some lift to the main pattern hammer-on the D chord
from open strings on the top 4 strings.
As an alternative, if you prefer it, a Dm7 (xx0211)
also works well instead of the D chords.

Please remember to star rate this tab, thanks

Awesome tab! Except your comment on tuning to Eb then capo 1 only brings it back to standard tuning.
