This is a really fun style to play. This is a little funk vamp around A-7

This kind of thing is very hard to tab out...some general guidelines
1) Wrap thumb around neck to grab that low A at the fifth fret..
2) Hit HARD and sharp with a squeaky clean tone (the middle or front two pickups sounds best).
3) Keep right wrist loose.
4) Whenever possible, give those double-stops vibrato or a semi-bend. This really brings them out.
5) Your basic pentatonic is right there for improv/ additional fills:

This style is best practiced with a drum machine of some kind. Set up a beat and get that right hand moving!
