Elliott Smith

Elliott Smith - Because guitar tab

Because (Lennon/McCartney) as performed by Elliott Smith on the American

Beauty soundtrack

A lot of this tab is borrowed from Mike Chapman's tab for the original song.

Try using a stiff pick to get a sharper sound, but finger picking is okay

too.

The song is almost entirely bar chords.

(The first five lines are just Elliott singing (no guitar))

Ahhh, Because the world is round, it turns me on

Because the world is round, ahhh

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind

Because the wind is high, ahhh

Love is old, love is new Love is all love is

F#
