Type - Guitar Pro
Part - Whole Song
Tuning - Standard

Louis Jordan ruled the Rhythm-and-Blues scene in the 40s and 50s and was the main influence of both Ray Charles and James Brown. I'd like to request 5 of his songs, and one of them is "What's the Use of Getting Sober (When You Gonna Get Drunk Again)", a very early Jordan-song from 1942, which has a length of about 2:55. You can find the song in the video below.

A Guitar Pro file which contains at least the bass part would be great.
If you prefer to only tab a guitar track in Guitar Pro, that would also be fine, since then someone else might later be willing to add the bass part to it.
Additional instruments of the original tune (e.g. drums) and included chord names would be nice, but for myself not really necessary.
In any case, the song version should be distinctively mentioned (e.g. "from the album ..."), and the song structure should be accurate (number of measures, time signature(s), time feel) and written without any kind of repeats. - Otherwise it would be too complicated for others, to collaboratively add further instruments later.

If you'd also like to see this song in the UG database, please upvote this request, to make sure that it will not disappear from the request list until it's completed.
