Part 1

Intro

  C chord diagramCC              not in time->|---|-> quick hammer-on and pull off
e---0-------0-------0---------|---|-----0------------------------ 
b---1-------1-------1---------|---|-----1------------------------ 
g---0-------0-------0---------|---|-----0------------------------ 
d---2-------2-------2---------0h2p0-----2------------------------ 
a-3-----0-3-----0-3-----0-3---0---|-2-3-------------------------- 
e-----3-------3-------3-----3-|---|------------------------------

At first, it might be easier to forget about the hammer-on and 
pull-off and just play the open a-string.  Also, it's good to 
strum the C chord diagramCC-chord at virtually any other point in the progression 
additionally to the places where I have it tabbed.

Part 2

This part is used mostly as a familiar transition back into a verse 
or into the chorus.

  C chord diagramCC 
e---------|---|-----0- 
b---------|---|-----1- 
g---------|---|-----0- 
d---------0h2p0-----2- 
a---0-3---0---|-2-3--- 
e-3-----3-|---|-------

For probably about 50% of the places where this applies, he leaves 
out the first three notes of this riff and just plays main part.  
Listening to the song on the Live Harrod & Funck album or Jason 
Harrod's Living in Skin really helps too.


Part 3

Transitions within the chorus never include the first part of (2).

  C chord diagramCC 
e---------0- 
b---------1- 
g---------0- 
d---------2- 
a---0-2-3--- 
e-3---------

Once again, you can add the hammer-on/pull-off as shown 
above.  He plays it that way sometimes, but make sure 
this basic riff is distinct.


Part 4

Transition in chorus from C chord diagramCC to Am chord diagramAmAm

  C chord diagramCC 
e---0-------0---- 
b---1-------1---- 
g---0-------2---- 
d---2-------2---- 
a-3---3-2-0------

Part 5

Ending

  C chord diagramCC       V--Strum up so that you hit the 3rd fret of the a-string last.
e---0-----X------ 
b---1-----1------ 
g---0-----0------ 
d---2-----2------ 
a-3-----2-3------ 
e-----3----------



Other than those parts, the rest of the song is pretty much strumming 
chords in rhythm.  Listen to the recordings to get the rhythm--I don't 
think anyone can tab out how to strum in rhythm.  Below, I have simply 
written the lyrics with the chords in their appropriate places.

If there are still some blanks that need filled in, listen to the 
recording(s) a few more times or email me with a specific question.

For a version of this tab complete with lyrics, go to:
http://www.dickinson.edu/~padulab/harrodandfunck1.html .  I have 
permission 
from Jason Harrod to have his lyrics on my site.  To sort of prove that, 
if you go to Jason Harrod's website and look under the news tab, there's a 
link from his site to mine in case someone is skeptical.  If you go to this

url, 
it should be easy enough to navigate to the discography page with lyrics 
and tabs.  Also, if this tab is out of synch (the font should be courier or

courier new), then go to the version on my site because it is in synch 
and in the proper font.
