SONG: People
ARTIST: Jimmy Cliff featuring Sting
ALBUM: Fantastic Plastic People

Since itís the summer vacation, I decided to post the tab of a reggae tune to this
website, mainly because reggae has quite a sunny rhythm and has been long associated with
summer if you know what I mean.
This one is played in the key of C/Am.
This is the main melody for both the intro and chorus;
[Dm] [C] [Dm]  
 
 E|-5-------------3-|-5-------------5-|-3---------3-----|-----------------|
 B|-----------3-6---|-----------3-6---|-------------6-5-|-3---------------|
 G|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
 D|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
 A|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
 E|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
