/ Elton John / Honky Chateau (1972) / Honky Cat bass tab

Elton John
"Honky Cat"
Greatest Hits Ablbum
Tabbed By Burton Barnett (barnburner)

Note: You MUST do a lot of funky improvisation in this song or it sound lame.  The bass
is very important, so don't screw it up.  That said, it isn't really that hard if you are
at all good, as there are really only two main themes, so improvising isn't that challenging.

Rest out the Intro. (4 measures)
