Here Comes The Sun

To all -

Can someone direct me to an accurate version of the chords for this song? Most versions show it being capo'd at the seventh fret.... some do not.

If you have a "tried & true" version I would appreciate knowing where to find it. This is on my "must learn this year" list of songs....

Thanks in advance ~

I don't know how faithful this version is to the original, but I learned it off of here:

Pt 1

Pt 2

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0MDAIskJOc&feature=related

He plays it at the 7th fret, but I lowered it to the 4th for my own vocal range.

Good luck!

He has an interesting take on the song - almost James Taylor"ish"...

The best free transcription that I found was from jawmunji.com

http://jaw.iinet.net.au/jawmunji/tab/JAW%20-%20Here%20Comes%20the%20Sun.pdf

This is a fingerstyle transcription and you asked for chords, so maybe it's not what you are looking for, but I bet someone will like it.

There are a number of other songs tabbed out on there too on this page:

I have a pdf and the original Pawer Tab file that I learned this song from. If you'd like, "PM" me with your e-mail address and I'll send your way. You can also find the Power Tab* file at:

http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/b/beatles/here_comes_the_sun_power_tab.htm

Then print to Adobe Acrobat to create a file for printing, archiving, sharing, etc.

*You'll have to download the free version of Power Tab to view and play the file.

Oh, as long as you're capo-ed at 7, Try The Who's little ditty "Blue, Red, and Grey." Nice happy tune with a distinctive "uke" sound to it. You can find that one at ultimate-guitar also.

Thanks in advance ~The original was played with capo on 7th fret (D shapes).
Doesn't mean any tab that shows it at 7th fret is going to be accurate otherwise, but I'd start from those that do. Use your ear to assess how accurate they are.

Great song to learn. I play it a lot. I wish I could help you out but I learned it loooong before there were tabs available. Good luck.

Yes - I used to learn most of the songs I know by simply watching / playing with others. But those days are long gone now....

I learned a bit differently. Vinyl: Pick the needle up, put it back, pick the needle up, put it back... until I got it.

Oh do I ever remember those days. Rather than the records now days, I check out Youtube and stop, slide back a few seconds and go at it again :)

I gave up learning covers. These days I just keep it real casual and goof around on the F/B looking for something that sounds cool.

I totally get that! For me, this is about learning a song that I "have to know" before I "cross the pond". So, this is the year to do that!

BTW - I have a similar request posted for a chord version of "Can't Find my Way Home"....

So - thanks!

I'm not much for covers myself, but this one I know 2 versions of, one flatpicked capoed at the 7th fret, one fingerpicked in open position in drop D tuning. Just makes me feel good to play it. I've always thought it's the perfect musical version of onomatopoeia. Makes me feel like the title suggests.

Hi -

Anyway to pass on a chord listing for either version?

this looks pretty close to what I do flatpicking:

http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/b/beatles/here_comes_the_sun_crd.htm

chords are written down underneath.

capo VII is where the Beatles do it, but you can do it anywhere and it sounds good to me.

pgilmor,

thanks! much appreciated.

no problemo, TP. I was just taking a closer look at this tab and I find myself using some combination of the 3rd, 4th, and 5th strings for fills when there is room, like in between quarter notes so that I am playing something on each eighth note. I'm probably explaining that badly, but this version seems a little empty to me just as is.

Also, right at the beginning, I hit an open D string before I hit the chord. I think that sounds pretty good. Good Luck!
