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 isn¼t 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
