Because  The Beatles

Date: Thu, 12 Dec 1996 18:33:16 MET
From: mike chapman
Subject: 'Because' by 'The Beatles'
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.
