Julia  The Beatles

[two versions] 
From: infidel+@pitt.edu (Todd J Derr)
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 rigbt- esp. tbe G+9/Gm7 part...] feel free
to mail me any corrections, or just enjoy as is...

"Julia"
The Beatles transcribed by todd j. derr (infidel+@pitt.edu)
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]332010 [EADGBE]002213 [EADGBE]022003 [EADGBE]320033 [EADGBE]353333
[C/G] [Am7/E] [Em] [G] [Gm7] 
[EADGBE] [EADGBE] [EADGBE] [EADGBE] [EADGBE] 
[353335] [575655] [131213] [131114] [224432] 
[Gm9] [A7] [F9] [Fm7] [Bm/F#] 
[EADGBE]002212 [EADGBE]022030 [EADGBE]022020 [EADGBE]022010 [EADGBE]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.
