Subject: Re: REQ: Beatletabs (guitar and bass)


Here's Taxman (probably a re-post). I don't have Nowhere Man, but it was tabbed out in the recent Guitar mag with John Lennon on the cover. As for If I Needed Someone, I also don't have this tab readily available, but a hint is to learn it in the key of D using the usual "baby" D chord (XX0232), then capo up to the seventh fret.

Marc

  Taxman
(Harrison)


Verse:
    D7                         D7#9  D7
Let me tell you how it will be
    D7                              D7#9  D7
There's one for you nineteen for me
               C7              G7#9    D7
'Cos I'm the taxman   Yeah I'm the taxman


Verse:
Should five percent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all
'Cos I'm the taxman   Yeah I'm the taxman


Middle:
         D
If you drive a truck  I'll tax the street
                            C
If you try to fix it  I'll tax your seat
        D
If you get too cold  I'll tax the heat
                           C                D
If you take a walk  I'll tax your feet   TAXMAN!
