Beatles - Her Majesty Btab guitar tab

artist: Beatles

title: Her Majesty

album: Abbey Road

tuning: standard

her majesty's a pretty nice girl but she doesn't have a lot to say

her majesty's a pretty nice girl but she changes from day to day

I wanna tell her that I love her a lot but I got to get a belly full of wine

her majesty's a pretty nice girl someday I'm gonna make her mine ooh yeah

someday I'm gonna make her mine

possible version one: the basic bass line

(I know this song has no bass, but this is what it'd be)

parts above the brackets are played faster to fit in two beats

A--5----5-4-2-0---0-5--0-2-4-5-4-2-0---0-0-0-2---2----5-5---2-------

possible version three: upper fretboard tapping

I know jack shit about tapping...

I've seen one friend do it and it blew my mind; this is NOT the kind

where you tap with the right hand high on the fretboard and the left hand

low on the fretboard doing a counter line. Stu Hamm I'm not, nor aspire

to be. This is for fun. And it helps if you keep your left index

finger across the 12th fret of both D and G strings to retain clarity and

harmonics

L=left hand R=right hand

R L

L R R R L L L R L R R R R R L L R

G--19---19-18-16-14----14-19---14-16-18----19-18-16-14----14-------

D--12---------------14---------------------------------14-19-19-19-

G--16----16----19-19----16--24-24-24---19-16----14-19--16----14-19----

D-----16----16-------17----------------------14-----------14-------19-

possible version four: upper fretboard octave tapping

sounds like shit... don't bother...

I'll post more ways of playing this as they come about...

if you bothered to read through this all please send me a note to
