  The Beatles - If I needed someone from Rubber Soul album.
                Released on December the 3rd of 1965.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by:PJVillanueva

This song is a drone kept by the bass guitar while Lennon's rythm 
and Harrison's picking change from A to G.
Lennon plays a syncopated rythm in low chords while Harrison,who 
uses a capo on the seventh fret, plays a fingerpicking guitar riff 
with an alternate A-E bass.
(D-A in the seventh fret capo position)
Be patient.It works and it sounds great.
Capo on 7th fret
Chords:    A    x02220    Remember that rythm guitar is played 
           G    320033    without a capo.
           Em   022000
           F#7  242322

I'm very glad that you think it is good. Pity that someone though one day it isn't.
Thank you very much for posting your comment.
