                        Because

                    Lennon/McCartney

Album: Abbey Road

Transcribed by Mike Chapman (chapman@power.psl.ee.vt.edu)

This version is pretty fun to play along with the vocal version
on Anthology 3!  Try using your pinky for the notes marked with
a *. This version also sounds great on just an acoustic. I like
to use a stiff pick to get a sharper attack sound, but finger
picking is okay too. The song is almost entirely barre chords.

Chords:

 C#m    G#7sus?   G#      A       A7      D       F#
