Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Well, I finally got around to it: the infamous "Watching Rainbows" at first i was afraid
to do this one becuase the vocals are very unclear but when i listened to it minus a few
mumbles i could figure out most of what John is singing. IT was recorded uring the Get
Back Sessions and George wasn't there that day so Paul plays lead. So the line up is
like this:
John Lennon- Electric Piano, Lead Vocals. Paul McCartney- Lead electric guitar. Ringo
Starr- drums. (?)- Tambourine.

The Beatles
Watching Rainbows
(Lennon/McCartney)

(INTRO):

|| A D ||: repeat twice


A               D              A              D
Standing in the garden waiting for the sun to shine
A            D             A                D
Hand me my umbrella...[incoherent]...in the line
A           D              A         D
Everybody's callin'...[incoherent]...come
A          D                 A                 D
Instead of Watching Rainbows I'm gonna make me some
A                   D        A                 D
Instead of Watching Rainbows I'm gonna make me some
A                      D        
Standin' in the garden waitin' for the English 
A                       D                    A
Sun to come and take me back so I can be someone
A                      D
Lookin' at the best of best old neighbors
A                       D               
Cryin' at my home cause I'm a settin' sabor
A                  D                      A    D
Everybody's got to have something hard to boil
        A                          D
Well, instead of Watching Rainbows cunnery cun*
          A               D
You gotta get outside and make you one
          A               D
You gotta get outside and make you one
           A                        D             A
Cause your not gonna make it if you don't get one oh...

Electric piano riff transcribed for guitar:

E-------------------
B------2---3---4-5--
G--2-2---2---2------
D-------------------
A-------------------
E-------------------

comes to a sort of breakdown after about 2 minutes

*(that's what i think John is saying, but whatever he's saying, it's important to the rhyme scheme.)
**(could be "kill" you know how John is...)

Define:

A  (XX2220)
D  (XX0232)
A* (X77655) 
D* (X57775)
E* (X79997)
