            While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Tabbed by: Ed
Email: edward_co@snet.net

Tuning: Standard

This song has kinda difficult bends if you do it the right way.
There is an easier way tabbed with hammer ons and stuff,
and while I haven't tried it, its gotten good feedback.

Make sure you read what I write, it may seem like a lot
but I play the song perfectly, and this is it. The notes explain
exactly how to play the part, as I don't know the symbols
used here very well.

First, the chords for the verses.

There is no E7 chord. I don't know where you pulled that one out of.

It's an E major after D (in the beginning) and C (during the verses and chorus).

at the first "i don't know why" you've got f#m to f, instead of back to c#m. good job though i think otherwise.
