=====================================

                        Yesterday  -  The Beatles
                    ----------------------------------
                           from the album 'Help'
 

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)



Intro:
-------

      G(no 3rd)

There's a shadow hanging over me
Oh yesterday came suddenly

Oh I believe in yesterday
