She Said She Said   -   The Beatles
              ---------------------------------------------


                           From the album 'Revolver'
                           tabbed by Howard Wright

                           H.Wright@astro.cf.ac.uk


h = hammer on
p = pull off
b = bend
r = release bend


Intro riff :
------------

E-------------------------
B------2h3--2h3--2h3-5----
G--2h4-----------------2--
D-------------------------
A-------------------------

What I have for the chords is :


 A         G    D                    A               G     D
She said           I know what it's like  to  be  dead        I know what it ...


Basically it's these three chords for nearly the whole song, apart from :

              Em        A7              D           A7             D
When I was a boy          e'thing was right           e'thing was right


And that's it.

As for the instruments : one guitar plays the chords, with a cleanish sound

The second electric plays lead parts which sometimes echo the tune, but this
guitar also plays the riff that comes after ' making me feel like I've never
been born'  :

E---------------------------------
B------------------------------
G---4b6r4-2--4--0-----0---2---------
D-------------------2---2--------
A-------------------------------
E-------------------------------



So , with these two guitars you have bass - fairly simple stuff here, a lot of
root notes except for the 'when I was a boy' bit, where the bass plays on the
1st 3rd and 5th of the chords.

Add drums, and harmony vocals (nearly all singing in 3rds) and you've got it.


I just recorded a cover of this on 8-track, and stuck pretty much to the
original sound. I double tracked that riff to give it more edge, and added a few
more vocals, but it sounded very good.

As a point of interest, check out the cymbals on the original.

On the bit with the guitar riff (between verses) there seem to be a lot of loud
cymbals - a lot louder than the bulk of the song.

Maybe they overdubbed extra cymbals here ?

It certainly gives it a powerful sound, and on the fade out too there's a lot
of cymbals.

Great song !

Howard
