Oh yeah... consider all the notes to be up 2fr... it just doesn't sound right
in C... also the chords are from a book... some of the 7th's don't sound like
7th's to me and I don't have them tabbed that way.

[Part I]
(verse/chorus)
                                       [I']
       D       Bm7     F#m7            D       Bm7     F#m7    A7

OK... now how it all fits together... [I]=play part I, etc.

[I]   D              Bm7            F#m7
      Half of what I say is meaning less,
      D            Bm7               F#m7  A7
      But I say it just to reach you Ju-----li-a.
[II]  D     Bm7 Am    Am7 B7          G9    Gm7
      Ju--li-a, Ju--li-a, Ocean child calls me.
[I']  D           Bm7           F#m7  A7
      So I sing a song of love, Ju-----li-a.
[II]  D     Bm7 Am        Am7   B7          G9    Gm7
      Ju--li-a, sea-shell eyes, windy smile calls me.
[I']  D           Bm7           F#m7  A7    D
      So I sing a song of love, Ju-----li-a.

[III] C#m                          D           Bm7       Bm6 F#m7      D
       Her hair of floating sky is shimmering, glimmering,   in the sun.

[II]  D     Bm7 Am    Am7 B7           G9    Gm7
      Ju--li-a, Ju--li-a, morning moon touch me.
[I']  D           Bm7           F#m7  A7
      So I sing a song of love, Ju-----li-a.
[I]   D             Bm7           F#m7
      When I cannot sing my heart,
      D          Bm7            F#m7  A7
      I can only speak my mind, Ju-----li-a.
[II]  D     Bm7 Am       Am7   B7           G9    Gm7
      Ju--li-a, sleeping sand, silent cloud touch me.
[I']  D           Bm7           F#m7  A7
      So I sing a song of love, Ju-----li-a.
[play part II as instrumental without I']
[I]   D           Bm7              F#m7    D  F#m7    D  F#m7  A7  D
      So I sing a song of love for Ju---li-a, Ju---li-a, Ju-----li-a


JULIA - The Beatles
         
From the White Album

tabbed by Howard Wright
H.Wright@astro.cf.ac.uk

You'll need a capo for this one on the 1st or 2nd fret.

The TAB for this might look a bit daunting at first, but it's based
on pretty straight forward chord shapes.

The only chords you need are these :


 EADGBE     EADGBE     EADGBE     EADGBE     EADGBE
 332010     002213     022003     320033     353333

   C/G       Am7/E        Em         G         Gm7


 EADGBE     EADGBE     EADGBE     EADGBE     EADGBE
 353335     575655     131213     131114     224432

  Gm9         A7         F9         Fm7       Bm/F#


 EADGBE     EADGBE     EADGBE     EADGBE     EADGBE
 002212     022030     022020     022010     332000

  Am6/E      Em7        Em6       Emadd#5     Cmaj7/G

To get the picking pattern in your head, I'll give a brief
explanation.

The key to it is the movement of the thumb. The thumb picks out
the notes on the E, A and D strings. For each chord played, the
order of strings which the thumb picks is the same - it goes
like this :

 A D E D

While the thumb gets on with this, use your other fingers to
fill in the notes on the top strings.

If you try it a few times, slowly, you should pick up the natural
rhythm which the picking pattern has.

Then, just practice !

I've tabbed the song out in full, although you'll soon realise
that a lot of it is very similar with certain sections being
repeated here and there.
