Artist: The Waiting
Album:  Blue Belly Sky
Song Title: I Want You Back
Written by:  Frederick J. Perren, Alphonse J. Mizzell, Richard Deke,
Berry Gordy Jr.
Tabbed by: Josh Blackstone (

The song is broken down into a couple of riffs that Clarke
interchanges throughout the song.

(Riff 1)

Played Twice except on the second time at the end (*) Clarke throws a
little tag on the end and it goes like this.

(Tag 1)

After you've played riff one twice, Brad starts singing saying
"Hey........." and then you play this riff twice

(Riff 2)


Play Riff One 2x.

Riff 2 played 2x and at the end of the chorus...


Verse 2:
Play same as first except add Tag 1 in where it was in the intro.

Played same as first time except at the end it goes right into the bridge
which is...

(Hold all notes for about a four count)
Play 4x


Then it goes right back into the chorus and riff 2 is repeated until the
song fades out.

This song was originally recorded by the Jackson 5 (I think) and was a
remake by the Waiting.  It's really tough to get the timing down at first,
but if you play it along with the CD for a while, you'll get the hang of it.
Also, since this song is kind of a groove, Clarke throws in some improv 3 or
4 note variations and fills here and there, so I couldn't get those all out,
even if I wanted to.  Oh well.  Enjoy.  Comments, questions, suggestions

God Bless.

It looks so complicated it must be right! Good job.

Are there two guitar parts?

princecaspian - 2006-12-04

Some people I know played it at my small group last night. It has A bass, an electric and an acoustic accompaniment

Hey, what do the letters mean? I see five letters: h, p, s, and N.H. I would be really appreciative if somebody could tell me, because I want to learn it for my family for Christmas. :D

relientrocker - 2006-12-05

h means hammer on
p means pull off
s means slide

so there you go!

princecaspian - 2006-12-05

So what does N.H. mean?
Thanks, by the way. That helps a TON.

gnostica - 2006-12-26

N.H. Means natural harmonic its where you lightly poise your fingers usually middle or index for me, over the strings and create a resonant sound that lasts after you withdraw your finger(s) the easiest fret to do these on is the 12th fret, sometimes how quickly you pull off from lightly resting over strings influence how clear the harmonic is
