Martha My Dear  The Beatles

Date: Mon, 26 Feb 1996 08:38:11 -0800
From: Brad Mahugh
Subject: TAB: by
MARTHA,MY DEAR
Written by: John Lennon - Paul McCartney
orginially appeared on the album, "The Beatles" (the White Album), 1968
Notes:
This is mostly a piano & orchestra performance on the White album.
I've always liked the song, so came up with this arrangement for guitar
accompaniment.
Any ideas for fleshing this out, improving or arranging an intro for it,
let me know. Also, this is my first full attempt at writing guitar
tab notation, so hope its close enough for government work .
I use capo at 3rd fret (chords listed are transposed to 1st position)
The song is really in key of E flat on the record (not C)
Martha my dear though I spend my days in conver-sa-tion
