Hello Hooray

Words and music by Ralph Kempf
From the album Billion Dollar Babies (1973)

This is MOST of the song except for the verses which I couldn\'t figure out. 
It includes the intro, chorus, and the solo (the best I could figure it out.) 
I'm pretty sure it is the best tab for this song throughout the entire net 
because I couldn't find any others. Some notes in the intro are played the 
same way at one part in the song again. It may not be the whole song but maybe 
this can start somebody off to try to figure out the whole thing, so if you can, 
please do. And if you want to rip it off or call it your own work then, what 
the hell, I don't care.

Standard tuning

Intro: I\'m pretty sure two guitars play in the intro but this is the main part. 
I think the 2nd guitar plays lower notes of a similar pattern. It sounds a bit 
better if you slightly bend the strings on a few notes.

Chorus: I tried to match some of the chords to your everyday chords and they sound 
the same but you can be the judge of that. Personally, they sound alike but im not 
100% sure. Just listen for the timing when "I___'ve been waiting so long..." is sung. 
For the 2nd chorus play G-G-F-G-C-G-G-F-G-C-G-G-F-F-G-C

Solo: (2:38 approx.) (slowly slide into it and at 5/12/17 pick 5 slide to 12, 
pick 12 slide to 17, and pick 17 and I think you might want to bend the strings 
quick and slightly up and down for a better sound on the high notes which might 
not be the right notes, but close enough.)

The song ends with G-G-F-F-C and fades. That\'s all!
