Twist And Shout
The Beatles
Written by Phil Medley and Bert Russel; released on "Please Please Me" album.

This song is reminiscent to "La Bamba"; only the same three chords repeated 
endlessly. The Beatles made significant changes to the song, just listen to 
the Isley Brothers' original version.

To Antei69:

First: I have Guitar Pro 5 on my computer. I also use it to transcribe the songs, and I have most of Beatles songs in Guitar Pro format too (I made them, partially of my bass tabs and partially from the tabs on Ultimate-Guitar).
Second: Let people decide what they want to see on UG. Guitar Pro 5 is not freeware anyway, to just download.
Third: Can you please write exactly where the mistakes are in my tab, and what are they?

Exactly. Antei69 stop advertising, if people want to use Guitar Pro 5, then that's up to them. Don't try to degrade other people's tabs, no one appreciates that.

gbeatle, thanks a lot man you've helped me to learn a LOT of songs, you must be a great musician.
