This Is Yesterday
from The Holy Bible.


I visited this site and realised that the best song ever written was tabbed incorrectly, so, here is the proper, although not quite finished, version.


intro:-
E-|---------------------------|-------------------------|
B-|---------------------------|-------------------------|
G-|-9--7----2--0--4-----------|-9--7----2--0--4---4---4-|
D-|-9--7----2--0--5---------5-|-9--7----2--0--5-----5---|
A-|------------------5-5ho7---|-------------------------|
E-|---------------------------|-------------------------|

E-|-----------------------------|-----------------------------------|


verse:-
E-|---------------------------|-------------------------|

G-|-9--7----2--0--4-----------|-9--7----2--0--4---4---4-|
D-|-9--7----2--0--5---------5-|-9--7----2--0--5-----5---|

D-|-----5-----5---------------5-|------5-----5---0-0--0--0ho2---0-0-|
A-|-------------------3---------|-----------------------------------|
E-|-----------------------------|-----------------------------------|


chorus type bit:-
E-|-------------------------------------------------|
B-|----12-------12-------12----10-------10-------10-|
G-|-------------------------------------------------|
D-|-------12-------12-------------12-------12-------|
A-|-10-------10-------10----10-------10-------10----|

G-|-----5-----5----2-2--2-------0---2-|
D-|----------------0-0--0--0ho2---0-0-|
A-|-3-----3-----3---------------------|
E-|-----------------------------------|


Repeat verse and chorus parts, then it's the solo:-

E-|--------------------------------------------------------
B-|--------------------------------------------------------
G-|-4/16-16-16-16-16\14-14-14-14\12-12-12-12\11-11-11-11\9-
D-|--------------------------------------------------------
A-|--------------------------------------------------------
E-|--------------------------------------------------------


E-|----------------------------------------------------
B-|----------------------------------------------------
G-|-9-9-9\7-7-7-7\5-5-5-5\4-4-4-4bu5rb4-2-4-2----------
D-|--------------------------------------------7/9-7-5-
A-|----------------------------------------------------
E-|--------------------------------------------5/7-5-3-


E-|-----------------------------------------------
B-|-----------------------------------------------
G-|-5/9-12-11-9-11-11ho12po11-11po9-------------9-
D-|---------------------------------12po9---12----
A-|-----------------------------------------------
E-|-----------------------------------------------


E-|---------------------------------------------
B-|-10po8-8/10-10/12-12/15-15/20-20\17-20bu22\\-
G-|---------------------------------------------
D-|---------------------------------------------
A-|---------------------------------------------
E-|---------------------------------------------

Then it's back to the chorus bit.

Ending:-
I'm not sure, play something in G.

Try playing the whole song in open G tuning (DBGDGD) in the same context..it's simpler to play and it sounds spot on ie the "Everything Live" performance..i'm surprised somebody didn't pick up on this earlier ;-) - bazmol

Spot on! just about to comment the same.

Tuning needs to be dropped to play this acoustically so that you can play 'the bass' on the top two strins

Some of this is wrong. If I get time I'll come back and tab it, but I probably wont. It's pretty much okay, just a few
bits need changing, but they're not difficult to work out if you listen to the song. All in all not bad.
