Celebration Chords
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Celebration - Kool & The Gang
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Kool & The Gang
Celebration (1980)
(Kool & The Gang)
From: "Celebrate!"


The chords in the chorus look confusing over the lyrics. That's why I tabbed 
these parts out, so it becomes clearer.

Listen to this tab: https://db.tt/KajrWt7x

Enjoy and do not forget to rate, please!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
The original recording is in G#, so: capo 1st fret if you want to play along.
