This Is Yesterday
from The Holy Bible.


I visited this site and realised that the best song ever written was tabbed incorrectly, so, here is the proper, although not quite finished, version.


intro:-
E-|---------------------------|-------------------------|
B-|---------------------------|-------------------------|
G-|-9--7----2--0--4-----------|-9--7----2--0--4---4---4-|
D-|-9--7----2--0--5---------5-|-9--7----2--0--5-----5---|
A-|------------------5-5ho7---|-------------------------|
E-|---------------------------|-------------------------|



E-|-----------------------------|-----------------------------------|
B-|-7-----5-------3-------5-----|--7-----5--------------------------|

D-|-----5-----5---------------5-|------5-----5---0-0--0--0ho2---0-0-|
A-|-------------------3---------|-----------------------------------|
E-|-----------------------------|-----------------------------------|


verse:-
E-|---------------------------|-------------------------|
B-|---------------------------|-------------------------|
G-|-9--7----2--0--4-----------|-9--7----2--0--4---4---4-|
D-|-9--7----2--0--5---------5-|-9--7----2--0--5-----5---|

D-|-----5-----5---------------5-|------5-----5---0-0--0--0ho2---0-0-|
A-|-------------------3---------|-----------------------------------|
E-|-----------------------------|-----------------------------------|


chorus type bit:-
E-|-------------------------------------------------|
B-|----12-------12-------12----10-------10-------10-|
G-|-------------------------------------------------|
D-|-------12-------12-------------12-------12-------|
A-|-10-------10-------10----10-------10-------10----|

G-|-----5-----5----2-2--2-------0---2-|
D-|----------------0-0--0--0ho2---0-0-|
A-|-3-----3-----3---------------------|
E-|-----------------------------------|


Repeat verse and chorus parts, then it's the solo:-

E-|--------------------------------------------------------
B-|--------------------------------------------------------
G-|-4/16-16-16-16-16\14-14-14-14\12-12-12-12\11-11-11-11\9-
D-|--------------------------------------------------------
A-|--------------------------------------------------------
E-|--------------------------------------------------------


E-|----------------------------------------------------
B-|----------------------------------------------------
G-|-9-9-9\7-7-7-7\5-5-5-5\4-4-4-4bu5rb4-2-4-2----------
D-|--------------------------------------------7/9-7-5-
A-|----------------------------------------------------
E-|--------------------------------------------5/7-5-3-


E-|-----------------------------------------------
B-|-----------------------------------------------
G-|-5/9-12-11-9-11-11ho12po11-11po9-------------9-
D-|---------------------------------12po9---12----
A-|-----------------------------------------------
E-|-----------------------------------------------


E-|---------------------------------------------
B-|-10po8-8/10-10/12-12/15-15/20-20\17-20bu22\\-
G-|---------------------------------------------
D-|---------------------------------------------
A-|---------------------------------------------
E-|---------------------------------------------

Then it's back to the chorus bit.

Ending:-
I'm not sure, play something in G.

Try playing the whole song in open G tuning (DBGDGD) in the same context..it's simpler to play and it sounds spot on ie the "Everything Live" performance..i'm surprised somebody didn't pick up on this earlier ;-) - bazmol

Some of this is wrong. If I get time I'll come back and tab it, but I probably wont. It's pretty much okay, just a few
bits need changing, but they're not difficult to work out if you listen to the song. All in all not bad.
