Play That Funky Music Tab

this is the classic funk song play that funky music white boy by James
Brown.  i was listening to this song one day and felt i should learn it
since none of the tabs i saw here are correct i figured i should figure
it out.  so i did and this is what i found to be as accurate as i could
manage to get it.  it shows all the different pieces of the song so you
will have to listen to the song to put it all together.



gtr. 1    he does this riff throughout the song unless indicated otherwise

      this is the part where he's like, "and they were dancin' and

then it's the same main riffs except everything jumps up 3 frets.
then it goes back down to normal
then it goes back up 3 frets
and at the end it goes up another 2 frets

during the solo the first two guitars still do the main riffs and an 
additional guitar does the solo which i haven't bothered to figure out
yet.
