          Song: While My guitar Gently Weeps (Acoustic)
        Artist: George Harrison
Transcribed by: Richard B.

This is such a great song. The Original by The Beatles was great
too, with all the crying effects on the guitar. This version is
more subtle and melodic, but just as fantastic.

The numbers above the Tab lines are to help you keep the beat
when you are playing. Notes under the numbers are to be played
on the beat, and notes in between the numbers are to be played
off the beat. This is how all standard notation works, though in
most cases the numbers aren't there!

NB: When you come across the asterix (*) on the second line,
play this:

1   2   3     4
--------5h6p5-----|
------------------|

I know it usually means a harmonic, but here it means a quick
hammeron followed by a pulloff (an upper mordent in musical
terms). I used the asterix to save space and to keep the beats
even on the page.

Everything else is as usual,
h meaning hammeron,
p meaning pulloff.

Also when you come to the end of the verse and the chorus, you
will come across something like this:  F (Dshape).

This means play an F Chord, but with a D Barre chord shape.
This is how it sounds in the song.

Em(Am) means exactly the same thing; play the Em Chord
with an Am Barre Chord shape.

 How to unfold your love

Em(Am)        Bm(Dm)  Em (Am)    Bm(Dm)
 I don't know how     someone controlled you

 I don't know how     you were inverted

 No one elated you.
