LOVE the John Popper Harp on this song. Anyone seen tab for the harp part OR willing to make it. I can't find the tab anywhere. I'm working on developing my skills to copy the parts of a song but not there yet.

I suggest not relying on tab except rarely. Use slow down tech for fast passages if needed, and work it out for yourself by ear.

Working things out by ear will build your ear skills as you learn riffs and songs.

EDIT: Actually, rather than working to duplicate John Popper note for note on this you would probably learn more by working on playing over the chord changes of the song without tab. Try key of D harp in 2nd position, song in A.

Take it from Obi-Wan..."Let The Force Be With You!" Like some other harp players, I personally don't believe in tabs. Let the music flow through you and you will be surprised at how your playing will improve as you feel the music. Good rhythm and muscle memory will do the trick...and practice, practice, practice! I hit the woodshed daily myself.
