YESTERDAY
by John Lennon/Paul McCartney

tablature by Jonathan Byrd

I have listed the basic chord progression above the tablature.
Sometimes the melody is part of the chord, and sometimes an extension
of the chord.  I did not indicate which notes should be sustained.  To
show the timing, I placed a "v" over each beat.  I typically play the
intro, two verses, the bridge, another verse, and the coda.

You need to tune all strings down one tone for this - so when
you play a G shape it actually comes out in the key of F.
It's important to do this - you can't just play the thing in F
using normal tuning - you need some bass notes which you can
only get by tuning down a tone and playing as if in G.


(I'll write all the chord names as if in standard tuning)

This songs sounds cool if you have two guitar players,and one plays chords
and the other plays lead.
