Subject: TAB: Hit the Road Jack / Ray Charles
This is my first post here, and I'm not exactly sure about the credits.
I believe Ray wrote this himself. If anyone knows better, let me know.
I'll hold off before posting this to Nevada.
Enjoy --

(**) Sandwich in between main riffs
NOTES on main riff:
(1) Leave no fingers on the fretboard here. Get into position
For the next two-note chord.
(2) Using the higher F is a form of cheating, but when played up
To speed the octave change is hidden. This is the main trick
Of the piece.
(3) The measure actually starts with the hammered-on C. I didn't
Include the bar only because it looked hard to read that way.
(4) It takes extra practice to move the left index finger from
The second-string C to the sixth-string F. Same as bar 2.
(5) This is the same high E as the first note in the main riff, so
You can see that the timing is not exact. I hope you can get
The idea through the feel of this rather than exact notation.
NOTES on Verse:
(6) Set the left index finger on the second-string C now, and use
The pinky for the D. The ring finger can handle the bass G.
(7) Same as note 4.
(8) Use a full first-fret barre to fret both the second and sixth
Strings. Keep the ring finger on the A while changing this.
(9) Syncopate the bass with the melody here.
(10) The second verse has an extra 4 bars. Make it up as I'm getting
Tired of doing this.
FINGERING:
I find it easier to use the pinky to fret the low G on the first
Four measures, and to use the thumb for the F. (Please don't flame
This part; I have had lessons but sometimes expediency prevails over
Theoretical technique.) This keeps the right hand in a good position
For doing both melody and the step-down bass.
