Beatles Lyrics

Paul McCartney is a better bass player than most people give him credit for. This song
in particular is a good example of his ingenuity. You will notice that I
chose to play some of the high notes on the lower strings because it rings out a
thicker tone than if played on the high strings. This is what it sounds like McCartney
doing.

Tabbed by: BASSteve

Tuning: EADG

Time signature: 4/4

r = rest (listen for duration)
h = hammer on
p = pull off
/ = slide (low to high)
= slide (high to low)
^ = bend (listen for pitch and release charateristics)
()= note inside parenthesis not plucked or hammered on
{}= note inside pointed parenthesis still ringing from previous measure

* My tabs are meant to be read in conjunction with listening to the song. In other words,
there are no specific notations to account for note / rest duration. However, you will
find that I’ve made an attempt to strategically space the notes and rests within their
respective measures in order to represent the appropriate durations.
