Red Hot Mama - Funkadelic Cover

Well....I love the song so I learned and played it. All that needs to be said..:
I did everything, vocals (which I can't do very well, warning you, I can't sing), guitar and the spoken intro but the drums, keyboard and bass are all part of the backing track I'm playing to.

By the way, I went a little Jimi on the solo...my bad. But it's what I felt so it's what I played. I would have gone more traditional to the song but I just didn't feel that...but what I did.

I'll explain it is I downloaded the backing track or *cough* "bought" then I put that into the studio program then I just played everything to it. And I don't have my effects pedal right now, all effects you hear are added after. So therefore the wah sounds a little fake but you have to work with what you can, ya know....So it's quite overdubbed. First I recorded the intro, added needed effects then I recorded actually the two opening solos, wah'd one......then I recorded the main riff and chorus (twice) (in one run) then I recorded the main solo, panned and wah'd it so not very complicated really. Basic production. It sounds live by the way...I think it came out good especially for a demo...I just went "I'm gonna record this now" at about 10:45 PM so I did....finshed it at midnight...mixed it at 1 AM..and well there...

Here's the tab (just in case) (It's a really, really EASY song. Guarantee you can learn it in like 10 min...I did but the solo is improvised but what I'm doing isn't that hard. Just knock a blues solo up on steroids (figuratively)

These are "my" lyrics (I sang it differently):

{spoken:}
A luscious ***** she is, true
But it's not nice to fool mother nature
The proud mother of god like all ho's
Is jealous of her own shadow
Who is this young Vic Tanny *****
Who wish to be queen for a day?
Who would sacrifice the great grandsons and daughters of her jealous mother
By sucking their brain until their ability to think was amputated
By pimping their instincts
Until they were fat, horny and strung-out
In a neurotic attempt to be queen of the universe
Who is this *****?

{sung:}
Red hot mama from Louisiana
Thumbin' her way to Savannah
She been cooped up too long
Red hot mama lookin' to the city
Taxi dancers and big time spenders
She's been groovin'
Red hot mama was gettin' down
Scoping the places where fun to be found
She was smokin' (Smoking now)

Ride on (Ride on, Ride on), red hot mama
Girl, you sure look good to me
Ride on (Ride on, Ride on), red hot mama
Girl, you sure look good to me
Ride on (Ride on, Ride on), red hot mama
Girl, you sure look good to me (Okay)
Ride on, red hot mama (Baby, ride on)
Girl, you sure look good to me (Ha!)

****! Hoah, I said hoah! Mmmm...yeah Oh ******' yeah!

Red hot mama was really bad (Bad)
She was badder than bad, bad as she want to be
(Bad *** ************ with a whip, whip it nice, come on)
Red hot mama was a real gas
Doin' it good and doing it fast
She was smokin'
(Do it, come back, slow ,yeah)

Whoa, {etc}! (Oh,...ooh, yeah)
(Come on, now baby, Oh)

Ride on red hot mama
Girl, you sure look good to me (Ooh come on, baby)
Ride on red hot mama
Girl, you sure look good to me
(Well hell yeah)
Ride on (Ride on, Ride on) red hot mama (Girl, just ride on!)
Girl, you sure look good to me (Come on!, Be my dog, baby!)
Ride on red hot mama
