You Can Leave Your Hat On  Joe Cocker

You Can Leave Your Hat On, Interpretation
Artist....: Joe Cocker
Title.....: You Can Leave Your Hat On
Author....: Frank Gro▀gasteiger
Version...: 4th October 2006
Comment...: While searching for this song on the web, I found some real crap
and some medium crap, but nothing really satisfying, so here is my premium
interpretation of this song. Nevertheless I thought about tranposing this song
into E-Minor for a possible Metal-Version of this cool song, but for now the
original way should be quite enough. :-)
Use chord-variations on your own.
Song Key..: C-Minor
(Nice lick over Eb, also using during the Bridge near the end of the song.
Try to play it quite smoothly, maybe using hammer-on's.)
This one 3 times: Then this one quickly played:

 B ---------------------- ----------------|
 G ---------------------- ----------------|
 D ------1-------1------- ----------------|
 A 1--3-------3-------3-- ----1-----------|

(Use this lick while Cm is played. Or hand this over to your bass.)

It sounds more correct in a major or major 7th than a minor progression to me.
