About this tab version
This is the melody of the song "Yesterday" by The Beatles, which is typically sang by Paul McCartney. I have listed the chords above, but for the precise guitar part I would use a different tab. It is in the key F, just like the studio version, so it can be played along with the recording. Hint: keep your hand in position with your pointer finger on the 5th fret. Was this info helpful? Yes No
