Manitoba Hal – Poulet Shack (Tab)

UPDATE: Help Hal win a Gibson retreat by Facebook liking this page.

With it being everyone’s favourite video of last year, there were no shortage of requests for this one. And I was very happy to comply because I’d already half worked it out so I could purloin a few funky blues licks. I based this tab on the video version but it’s very similar to the album version.

The big hurdle for recreating the song is the technology. Hal uses one pedal to move the opening notes down two octaves and a looper to continue playing the riff under the rest of the song. There are full details in Hal’s interview.

Other than that there shouldn’t be too much to trip you up. Just remember to keep most of the notes short and funky.
