Well, since I'm a Beatle fan, I've decided to write a tab of how I play
this song. You can leave me a comment of how well or bad I did since this is the first 
I write.


D: Down strum with your index finger
U: Up strum with your index finger
   (And if you can't strum the D string don't worry, at least try to strum
    the B and G strings)

All of the outer strings are played with the thumb and the middle fingers except for 
you have to strum

I don't like it when people won't man up and do the stretch.lol I saw a video of him playing it and he pulled the stretch. I pull the stretch everytime I play it.
