Janis Joplin – Mercedes Benz (Tab)

Janis Joplin – Mercedes-Benz (Tab)

Time for a song of great social and political import. And, more importantly, an easy to play song. I’ve kept the simplicity of the accapella original. Just adding a few chords in for support.

I’m using fingerpicking in my version. But it’s arranged so you can play the whole thing with your thumb if you prefer.

    So much better than just playing the chords. Thanks. is there a trick to the hammer on with an extra note in bar 5? Hammer on 3-5 on one string is fine, but I am not sure what to do when hammering on from one note to two notes, and your otherwise fine top-up to your tab reading post a couple of weeks or so ago didn’t cover that.

    Mark: Thanks! For the other note you just hold it and keep it playing.
