About this tab version
This is a very exact TAB of what John is playing. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Artist: John Lennon
Song: Hold On
Album: Plastic Ono Band
Tabber: irionxxx@gmail.com

I think John plays this without a pick, just fingers.

[Intro] (throughout the first part, until the slide down, 
hold a barré at fret 9 like this):

e------9-----|
B------9-----|
G------9-----|
D------9-----|
A------9-----|
E------0-----|

  [E]
e----------9-------------------------------------|
B------12--12------------------------------------|
G------9---9-------------------------------------|
D------9---------------9------9h11--9------------|
A-----------------9h11---11-------------11\4-----|
E--------------0---------------------------------|
              (play with right thumb)    (keep left ring finger in the slide down to 4)

   [F#m7]
e-----2---2-------------------2---2----------|
B-----2---2-------------------2---2----------|
G-----2---2-------------------2---2----------|
D-----2---2--------2----------2---2----------|
A-----4---4----2h4----h4------4---4----------|
E--2-----------------------2-----------------|
(the second time: don´t pluck the A string, just hammer on)


[Verse 1]

e-----12---9--9--9-----------------------------------|
B-----9----9--12-9-----------------------------------|
G-----9----9--9--9-----------------------------------|
D----------------------------9------9h11--9----------|

 "You're gonna [G#m7] win the fight"   [A6]    [B6]


Verse 2: (same lead guitar)

[E] Hold on Yoko , Yoko hold on
It's gonna [F#m7] be alright
You're gonna [G#m7] make the flight [A6] [B6]


[Middle:]

B------------7------------9-----------|
G------------7------------9-----------|
D-------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------|
E------------7------------9-----------|
When you're [Bm] by your-[C#m]-self
And there's [Bm] no-one [C#m] else
You just [Bm] tell your-[C#m]-self
 "To [E] hold on"

(Instrumental solo, same as one verse)

        "Cookie"


[Verse 3:] (same guitar)

[E] Hold on world , world hold on
It's gonna [F#m7] be alright
You gonna [G#m7] see the light [A6] [B6]


[Outro]

[Bm] When you're [C#m] one,
[Bm] Really [C#m] one
Then you [Bm] get things [C#m] done
Like they've [Bm] never been [C#m] done
