Sonny and Cher – I Got You Babe (Tab)

Sonny & Cher – I Got You Babe (Tab)

Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don’t forget your booties ’cause it’s cooooold out there today.

Like Tuesday’s post, this one uses the slightly unusual 6/8 time signature. That means each bar is two sets of three beats. I like to count the bars 1,2,3,2,2,3. But 1,2,3,1,2,3 and 1,2,3,4,5,6 will also work. Or you could just clap along in an awkward, flat-handed manner.

This arrangement starts out with one finger per string. Then switches to thumb and two finger from bar 17. Then as the song builds you start strumming in bar 23 with occasional picked notes.

To keep things simple, I’ve skipped the key change in the song. If you’re feeling ambitious you can do it by moving everything from bar 37 onwards up a fret. You’ll also need to rejigger bars 41, 45 and 46 to 10-8-9-11.
