The Beatles
A Taste Of Honey - Ver 2 (Guitar tab)

A Taste Of honey -- Beatles 1962

The following represents the author's own representation of the song.
Use however you please!

I found the original key (on the original album) to be somewhere between Fm and F#m.
The Beatles, I think, rather enjoyed tuning up or down to suit their vocal
characteristics. I also found it in the key of Fm (sounded like they were actually
rehearsing this song, and probably were) from a downloaded Mp3 from one of the share
sites. However, the F#m key is much more simple for the guitar, so here is what
I have. The lyrics are straight from the record. Any chord mistakes are of my own doing.
Enjoy!

Key = F#m

F#m F+ A B B E Bm
(Fret 11)
E|--2--|--1--|--0--|--2--|----9----|--0--|--2--|
B|--2--|--2--|--2--|--4--|----10---|--0--|--3--|
G|--2--|--2--|--2--|--4--|----9----|--1--|--4--|

A|--4--|--0--|--0--|--4--|----x----|--2--|--2--|
E|--2--|--x--|--0--|--2--|----x----|--0--|--2--|

If you listen carefully you can hear the individual chord notes plucked during the
verse, along with the B chord notes played on the 11th fret. However, B played
on the 2nd fret does just as well.
