   THE BEATLES - LOVE ME DO (McCartney/Lennon) From PLEASE PLEASE 
                 ME album. Released on March, 22nd 1963.

   --------------------------------------------------------------

   Tabbed by:PJVillanueva





  
  The first official Beatles single with EMI PARLOPHONE is a very
  simple three chord song with rather bare lyrics and purposely
  repetitive (I'd say almost jokingly repetitive), but it is also
  something "different", with a very precise and contagious rhytm
  , far from the bland and stale Mitch Murray's HOW DO YOU DO IT, 
  which was intended as a first single for them. There was no need
  to insist on George Martin to give it a chance and although it
  only made #17 in the U.K., in spite of Brian Epstein supposedly
  ordering 10.000 copies for his NEMS shop in Liverpool to boost 
  the record on the charts, curiosity stung and he took a liking
  for them because he saw that they showed an unmistakeable value
  as composers.                                
  We can hear the first version of the single, with Ringo playing 
  drums, on THE BEATLES PAST MASTERS ONE, although the mix is much 
  more obscure. Ringo's bass drum was sunk because it didn't match 
  the bass and Paul's vocal part is much less confident (he sounds 
  like a bundle of nerves). But this version from PLEASE PLEASE ME
  album (the one tabbed here) sounds much better. Andy White sat 
  in on drums and Ringo played tambourine (Don't you think he beat 
  it too hard?. Sure It must have been a hell of a time for him, 
  although he gained due recognition finishing the album. Else, 
  White would only contribute to P.S. I LOVE YOU and an unreleased 
  version of PLEASE PLEASE ME). In this mix, guitars and harmonica 
  come to light and Paul sings much better. John and George play 
  both rhytm on their Gibson J-160's and they match it almost to 
  perfection in a very studied way (they had five days to rehearse 
  the song from the first try on June, 6th).
