        Wild World - Cat Stevens (As performed by Mr Big)
       
               From the album, "Lean Into It"

    Ok, this is fairly accurate, and people will recognise the tune if you play it 
correctly.  Whatever you do, don't be put off if it seems complicated because it 
really isn't.  I have not included the timing, so I suggest that you listen to the 
track as performed by Mr Big, and go on from there.  But for all you guys out 
there who know the tune and the rhythm, here we go!  --->

    There is one thing I'm not sure about in verse 3...  There is a guitar playing 
something around the second octave (12th fret) on the high E string.  I can't make 
out exactly what it is!  Post it if YOU know!
    Well that was it.  I can't spot any errors from here, but if you do come 
across any, feel free to correct it!  I said this before, but, "Wild World" is not 
as complicated as it seems.  The chords are simple, but there's nothing practice 
won't overcome.  
    
    The next thing I'm trying to tab out is Mr Big's version of The Who's "Baba 
O'Riley".  I'd be grateful if anyone who has it already would please post it.  if 
you wanna have a try at it, go ahead.  It's a really cool song that should help 
your picking technique, and it's found on the Mr Big Live album and the video.

    Well thanks again...  C-ya  =)
