B = bend up first note to second. . .
R = release first note to second. . .
    In both cases, pick only first note

Magic E Chord for use in AYBCS. Note that this is
a real open, twangy sounding E5 chord. . . sounds
best on a Rickenbacker 325!  Also sounds great in
Day Tripper.

NOTES:

e.g., 9/10\9 = Play 9 slide up to 10 slide down to 9.  I sometimes substitute 9H10P9

e.g., 9p8 = 9 pull off to 8

*  means strike base E string only before playing full E chord

The guitars on this song were recorded separately. Rickenbackers were not used. Probably Epiphone Casinos. The parallel 3rds and 4ths of the two leads cannot be played on one guitar, only approximated.

Sgt. Pepper 87 Jul 03, 2006 03:29 AM

Lennon overdubbed the lead lines on sepearate guitars, you can't play this on one guitar. IF you do, it's not as fluid.

It is fluid if you can play well, but you, Sgt. Pepper, are right. And wunderdog is also right. :D
