Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics
Major upgrade!! After one year development the new version of Chordie is now online! Please give feedback.


Octopus's Garden  The Beatles

The lines are tabbed so each "-" equates to an eighth note. Where you see ~3~,
play the three notes as a triplet. Where you see ~16~, make them sixteenth notes.
Frets are numbered 0-9, and where you have to go higher, A=10th fret, B=11th and
so on. Tabbed by Michael Oxner, moxner@nbnet.nb.ca
