                PLEASE ME album. Released on March, 22nd 1963.
   
  ------------------------------------------------------------

  Tabbed by:PJVillanueva


  At 10 pm, on February, 11th 1963, The Beatles had been working 
  for twelve hours (They had done 13 takes of HOLD ME TIGHT, but 
  it was finally discarded until some months later, and then they
  hastily recorded four covers (ANNA, BOYS, CHAINS and BABY IT'S 
  YOU). To complete their first album they needed five songs, so 
  there was one left and although they were already out of their 
  scheduled time at the studio, George Martin took them to the 
  canteen and asked them for a number which could be done in one
  or two takes (John was already on the very verge of loosing his  
  voice). They decided on The Isley Brothers hit TWIST AND SHOUT,
  which they were doing on their act for some months. With the
  studio staff as their audience, they delivered the most raving
  performance those studio men would see in all their lives. They
  wanted to try for a second time, but John just could not sing 
  any more. (I think that second take was not at all needed).  



  Well, shake it up, baby, now, 
 (Shake it up, baby)
  Twist and shout. 
 (twist and shout)
  C'mon c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, baby, now, 
 (Come on baby)
  Come on and work it on out. 
 (Work it on out, Wooooooooooooooohhh)

  Well, work it on out, honey. 
 (Work it on out)

    In the verses, John used to play G, A and A7 chords with his 
    thumb for the bass note and an index half barre for the first 
    and second strings. He muted the fourth string with his ring 
    finger on the fifth string. For those who find it hard for a
    start, it is easier playing those chords barred (six string 
    barre) The muting is done the same way.

This tab sounds great. All the new Beatles tabs that you've submitted are all sounding awesome. Nice job.

Nice tab, but here is a little more info on this song, John Lennon was sick when he sang this song, that is why is voice
is so scratchy. The Beatles did this song in 1 take!! John was so messed up I don't think he could sing one more. But
he still sounded great on it, and so did the song. It really boosted please please me in my opinion, even though please
please me was a huge single on its own.
