And Your Bird Can Sing (By BEATLES)

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. Mc
Cartney, too.  Enjoy.

   ... then ...

A -----------------------------------------------------------
E --0-----------------0-----------------0--------------------

(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.
