This is Gerorge Harrison's "My Sweet Lord" off of his 1971 album "All Things Must Pass".
This is the first time I've ever done a tab, so bear with me. No, seriously though, i DO
believe this is correct and you don't even need a capo for this version, plus, you can
even play this on a piano, as well. I wanted to make sure that all of George's fans could
have a correct tab of this song, so here's my interpretation of it, enjoy! (if there's
something wrong with it, let me know at jack_kashmir_tuesday@yahoo.com)

The chords are right good but if you capo the 2nd fret I think thats how george plays but either way sounds right :)

The part "that it won't take so long" -> E-C#7-F#m instead of E-E7-F#m....(and it's easier to play it with CAPO 2do fret)

Guys, you can atleast use this one for the times when you don't have a capo handy... Great one mate, Live Forever George Harrison.
