"Harlem Nocturne" by the Ventures
transcribed my Mike Youngblood

this is a jazzy little number from one of the great surf music outfits.  a great to
articulation and dynamics with.  listen to the song to get some of the more subtle nuances
in the tab. i use reverb, very light tremolo and light slapback delay to get somewhere 
to the tone.  put some soul into it(it will show, i promise, especially with this
and enjoy!!!!

This tab is purely excellent. There are very few mistakes at all, but there are some repeats that weren't mentioned, as well as a few phrases that are missing, like the ones directly after the descending riff before the repeats. Still, this is great. I'm glad it's tabbed because my dad and I want to play it.
