"Righteous," written and recorded by Eric Johnson, from his 1990 album
Ah Via Musicom.

Transcribed in 4/4 time, but with a definite blues-shuffle feel.

Note: this is NOT the same as the Feb 1992 transcription by Guitar for the
Practicing Musician. That version - which was used for measure demarcation
and for verification of some of the faster solos - involves some rather
unusual chord positions, and has some different style marks (e.g., bends
or vibratos). This IS how I play it.

The only thing I ask in return for my hours of labor is that you let me know
if you're using the file. Write me at law2@husc.harvard.edu. Enjoy...


Key:
This is typical tab, strings from high to low.
 T = play with thumb
 / = slide up
 \ = slide down
 ^ = bend 	^q = quarter tone	^h = half tone		^F = full tone
	if letter is above the fret #, note is bent THEN picked
 h = hammer
 p = pull-off
 g = grace note - written above note to be 'graced'
 ~ = vibrato

That's all folks. I just ask one thing in return: let me know if you use it.
I put so much time into this I would hate for it to go to waste.
