***THIS IS NOT HOW THE BYRDS PLAYED THE SONG***

I've been messing around with a few guys trying to learn some songs and one of 'em
out this song on the classical guitar a couple of nights ago.  Thought I should learn the
for it and went to look for a tab and couldn't find one.  I searched everywhere, even 
for a song book to buy but wasn't successful.  I analyzed the Guitar Chords played,
is something like G A7 D7 over and over in the verse with an added Am and C in the 
 I came up with this little circus type riff to play underneath a strumming acoustic guitar 
an arpeggio style classical guitar.

My first bass tab.


Play with a nice flow, moderately fast, sometimes slur the notes.


Standard Tuning, 4 String (EADG)

VERSES:GUITAR SOLO  (you'll catch the flow)

Directly back to VERSE, and so on.

Listen to the song for timing, really simple.


And that's practically what I play.  Sounds pretty good infront of a group of friends.
