This Is Yesterday
from The Holy Bible.


I visited this site and realised that the best song ever written was tabbed incorrectly, so, here is the proper, although not quite finished, version.

Repeat verse and chorus parts, then it's the solo:-

E-|--------------------------------------------------------
B-|--------------------------------------------------------

G-|-9-9-9\7-7-7-7\5-5-5-5\4-4-4-4bu5rb4-2-4-2----------

Then it's back to the chorus bit.


Ending:-
I'm not sure, play something in G.
