WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS
As Recorded by Peter Frampton
from the Album “Now”
original song by The Beatles

Okay, so this is my first tab ever, and I only did it because I
felt kind of obligated to do it since I only found another two other tabs online and (no 
to the guys who posted them) they didn't sound anything like the song (at least when I 
them).
So being the awesome cover song it is, i thought it deserved a proper tab. There are a 
things however I think I need to clear for you before you play this. First, the legend is 
the bottom of this tab.
Second, I divide the intro into sort of packages and put the seconds between each 2 
as heard on the “Now” album.
And fourth, (and perhaps the least important) a recommendation for the first package: I 
the 1st and 3rd fingers for the 5th and 7th fret, and the 4th finger for the hammer on, 
did a little tapping with my right hand for the 10p7.
So anyway, enjoy the tab and if you believe there's anything wrong with it (i don't 
care, but still) you're more than welcome to send me a recommendation to my e-mail.
Pd: I believe the song is played with a bit of distortion and a slight delay
so don't be afraid of experimenting with these effects

I love Peter, and, to me, his version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps (from NOW, and any live performance) is better then The Beatles' version (Which is still good)!

I want to post or [tab]
