Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds Tab - Beatles

 
Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds Tab
	LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS - The Beatles


Main riff goes like this:

	A           A-7        D           D/F
I---------------------------I---------------------------I
I-----------17------17------I----------17-----15p14-----I
I-------14--------------14--I------14---------------14--I
I---14----------17----------I--16----------15-----------I  
I---------------------------I---------------------------I
I---------------------------I---------------------------I

	These are just permutations of an A chord so you could play this down
on the second fret if you have an acoustic guitar. On electric, this riff
sounds really good when it sustains.

	Follow the pattern or play the chords for the verse:

  A         A-7       D         D/F
Picture yourself in a boat on a river 
       A       A-7        D        D/F --->  G
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
   A      A-7           D            D/F
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
  A             A-7      F#m ---> Dm ---> C
A girl with kaleidiscope eyes


PRECHORUS:

    Bb                      C                   F                  Bb
   Cellophane  flowers  of  yellow and green    towering over your head
                            (slow bend)
eI-------------------------------------------I----------------------------I
bI-------------------------------------------I----------------------------I
gI--5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w---5^1/2--5^w-5^w-I-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5\3I

   C                          G                            D
   Look for the girl with the sun  in  her  eyes and she's gone

eI---------------------------------------------------------I--------------I
bI---------------------------------------------------------I--------------I
gI--5^w-5^w--5^w--5^w--5^w--5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w--5^w---5---4---I--2-----------I


CHORUS:

        G           C        D          G           C        D
	Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.  Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
        G           C        D          D ---> A
	Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.



	To make D/F chord:
    D/F

I-----0----I
I-----3----I
I-----2----I
I-----3----I
I-----x----I
I-----x----I


	^w  -  means whole bend
        ^1/2 - means half bend

------------------------------------------
cut here
------------------------------------------

Here is how I play it :  (not like the above)

|--------12-------12-----------12---------9-8-------|
|----10----------------9-----------9-----------9----|
|-9-----------12----------10-----------9------------|
|---------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------|

I think that's right.  It's off the top of my head,
no guitar in front of me. 

Good luck!

About the artist behind Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds Tab:

The Beatles were a pop and rock group from Liverpool, England formed in 1960. Primarily consisting of John Lennon (rhythm guitar, vocals), Paul McCartney (bass guitar, vocals), George Harrison (lead guitar, vocals), and Ringo Starr (drums, vocals) throughout their career, The Beatles are recognised for leading the mid-1960s musical "British Invasion" into the United States. Although their initial musical style was rooted in 1950s rock and roll and homegrown skiffle, the group explored genres ranging from Tin Pan Alley to psychedelic rock. Their clothes, styles, and statements made them trend-setters, while their growing social awareness saw their influence extend into the social and cultural revolutions of the 1960s. After the band broke up in 1970, all four members embarked on solo careers.

The Beatles are one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed bands in the history of popular music. The Beatles are the best-selling musical group in history. In the United Kingdom, The Beatles released more than 40 different singles, albums, and EPs that reached number one, earning more number one albums (15) than any other group in UK chart history. This commercial success was repeated in many other countries; their record company, EMI, estimated that by 1985 they had sold over one billion records worldwide.[1] According to the Recording Industry Association of America, The Beatles have sold more albums in the United States than any other band.[2] In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked The Beatles number one on its list of 100 Greatest Rock & Roll Artists of All Time. According to that same magazine, The Beatles' innovative music and cultural impact helped define the 1960s, and their influence on pop culture is still evident today.
