Okay so the timing isn't great in this tab but the notes are right on

so if you know the song you should be able to get it. just pay attention

for those crazy staccato notes that paul loves to play so very much.

it starts off mellow with little plucks on the 7th fret of the G string

then the beat kicks in...

G----------5h7--5\-----5h7---------5h7-----------

D----7\---------------------9\----------8\----/8-

A-------5-----------5-----------5-----------5----

E------------------------------------------------

G----------5h7--5\-----5h7-----------------------

D----7\-------------------------2----------------

A-------5-----------5-------3-5---3------2-3-5---

E------------------------------------3-5---------

next verse goes like this:

G----------5h7--55\----5h7---------5h7-----------

D----77\--------------------99\---------88\---/8-

A-------5-----------5-----------5-----------5---- X 4

E------------------------------------------------

then

G------------------------------------------------

D------------------------------------------------

A----5-5--5-3-3--3-2-2--2-1-1--------------------

E------------------------------------------------

G------------------------------------------------

D--------------4---------------------------------

A----3-5-5-5-7---5-7-5--3--3-2-----2-5-----------

E-----------------------------3-5----------------

the bass rests for a bit and paul throws a random D in there

then when they start singing "look around..." repeat this

G------7---7--

D----7--------

A--------5---- X many

E-------------

G------------------------------------

D----3-3-3-3--6-6-6-6--5-5-5-7\------

A-------------------------------5----

E------------------------------------

next go back to this riff

G----------5h7--55\----5h7---------5h7-----------

D----77\--------------------99\---------88\---/8-

A-------5-----------5-----------5-----------5---- X 4

E------------------------------------------------

*

G------------------------------------------------

D----7\------------------------------------------

A------5-5-5--3-3-3-3--2-2-2/5\-1-1-1-3----------

E------------------------------------------------

* slide up but still pluck the 5

G------------------------------------------------

D------------------------------------------------

A----5-5-5-------2-5--3--3-2-----2-5-------------

E----------2-3-4-------------3-5-------------------

now play variations of this for a while:

G------------------------------------------------

D------------------------------------------------

A----5-5--5-3-3--3-2-2--2-1-1-1-3---------------

E------------------------------------------------

G---------------------------------------------------

D---------------------------------------------------

A----55555553h5--333---3h5p3--222---2------111---23-

E-------------------234----------234-3--------234---

G------------------------------------------------

D------------------------------------------------

A----555---2-3h5---3-2------5--------------------

E-------234--------------------------------------
