SONG: I’m Only Sleeping
ARTIST: The Beatles
ALBUM: Revolver

Tabbed for bass by KingUrth (kingurth@gmail.com)

This is a great song, and probably one of the most fun to play for bass. It’s in a weird 
(Eb minor) and modulates a couple times, but once you get the rhythm and general note 
the rest of it flows logically.

I’m pretty sure I have all the notes right, but I’m not great with tabbing out rhythm. 
listen to the song. It sounds pretty bizarre, but I think it’s 4/4.

TUNING: EADG

Then play that again, except instead of that last measure, play this:

I checked my friend's book after I tabbed this out, and I'm 100% positive I have all the notes right.

The song is played in E(M) but the tape is slowed down.
