Miscellaneous info:

Note this figure played over the A chord in the verses.

John was really into this around the "Let It Be" years.

This is also the basis of the intro and main rhythm part

for "I've Got A Feeling."

(*) Note this little parallel 6ths figure played over the

first G chord in each verse. George had an endless

set of variations on this theme throughout the recording

which are not transcribed here.
