This song is hard to sing because of the 3-part harmony, but if you can get it
right, this song sounds great.

This is a great tab, but you don't need to bar (or capo) the 2nd fret

correct me if im wrong but i think he was just advising on how to play the intro riff.

youre right about the harmony too, when i sing along i keep starting off singing with john and end up with paul or george haha

It's so difficult to sing this song when you're playing it yourself (but it's fine when you're singing along to the record) - I can't pick out the right key!
