Here is the first of the two new Beatles songs from the Anthology series.
The other tab already in the archive is a little hard to follow, so I
figured out the intro for myself and wrote them down. This song features
some ingenious slide work from George which isn�t really very hard to
learn. The hard part (for me) is getting the tone and sustain that
he gets, especially on the wide vibrato on the first note of the solo.
Anyway, just have fun with this great song! - Zach
