e-5-5-----------5-----------| 


g---------5-4-------------4-|
d-----4-7-----7---4-4-7-7---|      You'll notice the five extra beats at
a-5-5-----------5-----------|      the end of the main riff. These are fills
e---------------------------|      and are present in the recording if you 
                                   listen closely. Unlike the guitar the
g---------7-6-------------6-|      Bass line never rests.
d-----6-9-----9---6-6-9-9---|
a-7-7-----------7-----------|
e---------------------------|


after ringo's little drum fill come in with an E note.  I like to use the second fret of the D string.  Just listen to the song to get the rythm.


then comes the chorus fill..
g---------------------------------|
d-----2-2-3-3-4-4-5-5-4-4-3-3-2-2-|
a-3-3-----------------------------| repeat several times.
e---------------------------------|


then these little riffs come in.
g-2---0-2-0-----------|
d---2-------2-0-------|
a---------------3-0---|
e-------------------3-|


g-------2-5-9-5-7-5-2-0-|
d-----2-----------------|
a---5-------------------|
e-5---------------------|



Enjoy! And if you notice anything missing or find a mistake be sure to email me!

This part:
g---------------------------------|
d-----2-2-3-3-4-4-5-5-4-4-3-3-2-2-|
a-3-3-----------------------------|
e---------------------------------|

is actually:
g---------------------------------|
d-----2-2-3-3-4-4-5-5-3-3-2-2-0-0-|
a-3-3-----------------------------|
e---------------------------------|

after that about 3 times it goes:
g---------------------------------------------|
d-----2-2-3-3-4-4-5-5-6-6-7-7-8-8-9-999999999-|
a-3-3-----------------------------------------|
e---------------------------------------------|

That bass and guitar breakdown part is wrong. I can't tab it out for you, I don't have my bass with me but it's different. That one works with it, but it's inaccurate to the recording.

And that guy is right about that part too. Good Job Anyways!

I want to post or [tab]
