John Butler Trio - Funky Tonight tab

Tabbed by: Robs


Tuning is EBEBEG# (CGCGCE with capo 4th fret)

(Don't tune you guitar to EBEBEG# directly or you'll break your strings. I know it's 
but ya never know, right?)


intro & verse:

G#|-----------------------------------------------| E|---0-----0-----0----0-----0-----0-----0----0---| B|---0-----0-----0----0-----0-----0-----0----0---| E|---0-----0--3--0----0-----0-----0--5--0----0---| B|-5---3h5---------3h-5--2----3h5---------3h-5---| E|-----------------------------------------------|
G#|------------------------------------------------| E|---0-----0-----0----0-----0-----0------0----0---| B|---0-----0-----0----0-----0-----0------0----0---| E|---0-----0--3--0----0-----0-----0-5h6p50----0---| B|-5---3h5---------3h-5--2----3h5----------3h-5---| E|------------------------------------------------|
What's cool about this tuning is that you can play the riff loads of different ways, an higher for example:
G#|-----------------------------------------------| E|---0-----0--3--0----------0-----0--5--0--------| B|-----3h5---------3--5--2----3h5---------3--5---| E|-0---------------------------------------------| B|-----------------------------------------------| E|-----------------------------------------------|
John also does some cool little breaks but I haven't worked those out yet. Chorus:
G#|------------------------------------------------| E|------------------------------------------------| B|---5--------2/3--------------------3/5--------3/| E|-----------------------3/5----------------------| B|---5--------2/3--------------------3/5--------3/| E|-----------------------3/5----------------------|
G#|------------------------------------------------| E|------------------------------------------------| B|--/5--------2/3--------------------3/5--------3/| E|-----------------------3/5----------------------| B|--/5--------2/3--------------------3/5--------3/| E|-----------------------3/5----------------------|
G#|------------------------------------------------| E|------------------------------------------------| B|---5--------2/3--------------------3/5--------3/| E|-----------------------3/5----------------------| B|---5--------2/3--------------------3/5--------3/| E|-----------------------3/5----------------------|
G#|------------------------------------------------| E|------------------------------------------------| B|--/5--------2/3---------------------------------| E|-----------------------3/5----------------------| B|--/5--------2/3---------------------------------| E|-----------------------3/5----------------------|
That's all for now, I've only just started learning the song but wasn't very convinced the tabs I found. Here's my version!
