AND YOUR BIRD CAN - SING LENNON & MCCARTNEY

Marc Hertzberg (hertzberg@elwood.enet.dec.com)was
the first to send a tab of And Your Bird Can Sing

Here's an arrangement of AYBCS for bands that have
only two guitarists, and thus the lead guitar has
to play both parts while the rhythm guy chunks
away at the chords.  Admittedly a tad weak in the
middle section, but it sounds pretty good in my
band.

I learned this by taping the chords ***very***
slow and playing until I knew it at that speed.
Once I had it learned, it sped up pretty easily
for me.

What a masterpiece this is.  Aren't those chords
in the middle section amazing?  When it gets back
to the "E" chord (e.g., "You may be awoken"), it
sure doesn't feel like the home key, does it?
But it all works beautifully.  Cosmic bass playing
by Mr. McCartney, too.  Enjoy.

Marc

B = bend up first note to second. . .
R = release first note to second. . .
    In both cases, pick only first note

Magic E Chord for use in AYBCS. Note that this is
a real open, twangy sounding E5 chord. . . sounds
best on a Rickenbacker 325!  Also sounds great in
Day Tripper.

I believe both Marc Hertzberg and Richard Fowler
were on the right track insofar as the melody is
concerned and I referred to their versions to
help confirm what I felt I was hearing on the Re-
volver version of And Your Bird Can Sing.However,
I can't see George Harrison zipping up and down
the fretboard to play these beautiful riffs.  I
believe his riffs were confined to the higher
areas around the "Magic E Chord" discussed by Marc
Hertzberg.  Also, the middle is based on easily
played chords and with easy transitions. Also, I
felt that there are corrections which need to be
made to the words.Anyway, this is the arrangement
I have come up with for this beautifully written
song.  I hope you enjoy it! Any comments are cer-
tainly welcome.

NOTES:

e.g., 9/10\9 = Play 9 slide up to 10 slide down to 9.  I sometimes substitute 
9H10P9

e.g., 9p8 = 9 pull off to 8

*  means strike base E string only before playing full E chord

I send this again because it was'nt in the right format, there was too 
much lyrics and it looked too much like the previous version, etc ...

   And Your Bird Can Sing   
     (Lennon/McCartney)
The Beatles
       Revolver (1966)

This is a rewriting of the previous versions of the intro, the riff, the 
solo, the middle section and the outro of AYBCS, a song you can hear on 
Revolver, the best rock album of all time (that's what a jury of 400 
celebrities said). As I found the 3 previous versions really hard to 
play, I have searched for a easier way to play this song, and I realised 
that it was much more simple with an open tuning (E-B-D-G-B-d) for the 
middle section as well as the solo. I am not sure of all notes but I 
know it's the most simple tab I could have written.
