                        Because

                    Lennon/McCartney

Album: Abbey Road

Transcribed by Mike Chapman (chapman@power.psl.ee.vt.edu)

This version is pretty fun to play along with the vocal version
on Anthology 3!  Try using your pinky for the notes marked with
a *. This version also sounds great on just an acoustic. I like
to use a stiff pick to get a sharper attack sound, but finger
picking is okay too. The song is almost entirely barre chords.

Love is all, love is you
Because the sky is blue, it makes me cry
Because the sky is blue, ahhh
