Get Back Tab

   
GET BACK
As recorded by The Beatles
(Released as single in 1969)
Transcribed by Wunderdog

Notes:
Both guitars are standard tunings.
Gtr II; Ryhthm (Harrison) uses liberal palm muting on the downstroke.
Gtr I; Lead(Lennon)palm muting when not soloing.

The transcription is from the intro to the beginning of the electric piano solo.
Lead varies in second verse, but all those parts can be derived from the transcription shown below.
