Julia

Beatles


[two versions]
ok- the bridge is a bit shaky here but it's the right idea at least (all I have here is my trusty old Ovation 12 and it gets kinda rough to hear if I'm doing things right or not...) some of the bass notes are a bit of a reach [and may also not be right- esp. the G+9/Gm7 part...] feel free to mail me any corrections, or just enjoy as is...

ok.... you'll need a capo on the second fret for this one... hopefully it's (mostly) right... after you listen to it too long... well, you know, your ear gets harmonically whacked. ugh.... have fun...
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.

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

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.
