Slim Harpo - Baby Scratch My Back tab

Okay, this my first tab, so bare with me. This is a classic 1-4-5 blues. You have the 7
tones: A, B, C, D, E, F, G. The ''1-4-5'' is the number of the tone. Number 1 sets the
bar. If it's E-blues, then you count 5 from E (1. G is counted twice, so the 4 tone is 
A. Then it's tone number 5. B, so it's: E, A, B.


h=hammer on
b=bend
~=shake (your finger)

if i find out it is, i will remove it. Enjoy!
