Jamaica Mistaka Tab

Check this out - apologies if any bits are wrong (but I\'ve been told it was spot on!)


Intro:- Bm, A, Bm X2
	Bm, G, A  X2

	Bm, A, G, A X2

	Bm 	    A 		   G 		    A

	Some folks say that I\'ve got the perfect life

	Bm	     A	                G                 A
	Three swell kids, lots of toys and a lovely wife	

	(Basically thats it for the verses, just listen to
	the rhythm for when to change chords)

Interlude1 - the steel drum bit (do a \"Misirlou\" type picking here for the 1st time round)
~~~~~~~~~~   (the Pulp Fiction theme for those who don\'t know the song!)
	This bit is repeated twice by the steel drums:

	e |-------------------------------|
	b |---3/7/3---3/5/2---2--0--2--3--| (the / means slide)
	g |-------------------------------|   3 slide to 7 etc

Verse 2 follows - which is basically the same then....

	      G	    A		D      A      Bm
	Come back, Come back,  Back to Jamaica
[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/buffett_jimmy/jamaica_mistaka_tab.html ]
     G             A       D      A    Bm  	
	Don\'t you know we made a big mistaka

      G             A		D    A 	   Bm
	We\'d be so sad, if you told us goodbye

		  G			F#m
	And we promise not to shoot you out of the sky

The interludey bit here is Bm, G, A X2 then Bm, A, G, A X2 which then goes back to the
verse structure. (Same as above) The slide bit follows then the chorus....

The fasty bit is next which is:-

Bm, A, G, F#m, F, D, F, F#m - try the tab here (the bass line) to get the basic rhythm of it:-

e |--------------------------------------------------------------|
b |--------------------------------------------------------------|
g |--------------------------------------------------------------|
d |--------------------------------------------------------------|
a |--------------------10--10--10--9--9--9--8--8--8--8--5--8--9--|
e |--7--7--7--5--5--5--------------------------------------------|

For the above bit - play the chords higher up on the fretboard.
Like the Bm on the 8th fret, the A on the 5th then the G on the 10th and F#m on the 9th etc etc..

I think the solos in B but I\'ll let ya know bout this later.

The end bit: Promise not to shoot you..... goes:

G, F#m, F, F#m, F, D, Bm - again, play this bit further down the fretboard.

AND THAT\'S IT - I think.
