Beatles — Yesterday bass tabs

  Rate this tab:







Artist: The Beatles
Song: Yesterday
Album: Help!
Bassist: N/A see **NOTE** (Paul McCartney)
Tuning: Standard (E,A,D,G)
Tab: Ben (beano1@gmail.com)

**NOTE: There isn't actually a bass guitar in this song, the two closest
sounding things to a bass are Paul finger—picking the three bottom strings
of his acoustic guitar (which is actually tuned a whole step down) and a cello;
these two, along with one other are the only instruments in the song. However,
this song can still be played on the bass and it still sounds good. This tab
itself is from a combination of what the cello plays and what Paul picks on
his acoustic.**

Lyrics:
Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away,
Now it looks as though they're here to stay,
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be,
There's a shadow hanging over me.
Oh, yesterday came suddenly.

Why... she... had to go, I don't know, she wouldn't say
I... said... something wrong, now I long for yesterday

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play,
Now I need a place to hide away.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Why... she... had to go, I don't know, she wouldn't say
I... said... something wrong, now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play.
Now I need a place to hide away.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Mm mm mm mm mm, mm mm
