[vamp over Bm7, C#m7 and fade] * Transcription and performance notes: Firstly, let's turn towards Michigan and Motown and acknowledge the genius of Stevie Wonder and his musicians. I'm surprised this amazing piece hasn't been documented before... The recording uses three guitar tracks - steel string, nylon string, electric. Until someone does a tab version, you can replicate the sounds by listening where the two different acoustic guitars strum or arpeggiate the chords and inversions of the chords. That process is actually the way recording was created. Artists like Stevie Wonder hire guitar players who can create their own guitar parts from the raw chord symbols and add to the feel of the song. Tabs are great to get you to the "starting gate", but I encourage you to use these chords as your own starting point. I'd also acknowledge the following website and the talented musician for providing the foundation for this chord chart. www.youtube.com/watch?v=ky8tbwN5thI
