Song: While My guitar Gently Weeps (Acoustic)
        Artist: George Harrison
Transcribed by: Richard B. 

This is such a great song. The Original by The Beatles was great
too, with all the crying effects on the guitar. This version is 
more subtle and melodic, but just as fantastic.

The numbers above the Tab lines are to help you keep the beat 
when you are playing. Notes under the numbers are to be played
on the beat, and notes in between the numbers are to be played
off the beat. This is how all standard notation works, though in
most cases the numbers aren't there!

NB: When you come across the asterix (*) on the second line, 
play this:

1   2   3     4
--------5h6p5-----
------------------

I know it usually means a harmonic, but here it means a quick 
hammeron followed by a pulloff (an upper mordent in musical 
terms). I used the asterix to save space and to keep the beats 
even on the page.

Everything else is as usual, 
h meaning hammeron, 
p meaning pulloff.

Also when you come to the end of the verse and the chorus, you 
will come across something like this:  F (Dshape).

This means play an F Chord, but with a D Barre chord shape. 
This is how it sounds in the song. 

Em(Am) means exactly the same thing; play the Em Chord 
with an Am Barre Chord shape.

Verse 1:
I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps

Still my guitar gently weeps

How to unfold your love
I don't know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you

Verse 2:
I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don't know how you were inverted
No one elated you

Verse 3:
I look from the wings at the play you are staging
While my guitar gently weeps
As I'm sitting here doing nothing but aging
Still my guitar gently weeps
