Love Me Do Tab
   --------------------------------------------------------------

   THE BEATLES - LOVE ME DO (McCartney/Lennon) From PLEASE PLEASE 
                 ME album. Released on March, 22nd 1963.

   --------------------------------------------------------------

   Tabbed by:PJVillanueva





  
  The first official Beatles single with EMI PARLOPHONE is a very
  simple three chord song with rather bare lyrics and purposely
  repetitive (I'd say almost jokingly repetitive), but it is also
  something "different", with a very precise and contagious rhytm
  , far from the bland and stale Mitch Murray's HOW DO YOU DO IT, 
  which was intended as a first single for them. There was no need
  to insist on George Martin to give it a chance and although it
  only made #17 in the U.K., in spite of Brian Epstein supposedly
  ordering 10.000 copies for his NEMS shop in Liverpool to boost 
  the record on the charts, curiosity stung and he took a liking
  for them because he saw that they showed an unmistakeable value
  as composers.                                
  We can hear the first version of the single, with Ringo playing 
  drums, on THE BEATLES PAST MASTERS ONE, although the mix is much 
  more obscure. Ringo's bass drum was sunk because it didn't match 
  the bass and Paul's vocal part is much less confident (he sounds 
  like a bundle of nerves). But this version from PLEASE PLEASE ME
  album (the one tabbed here) sounds much better. Andy White sat 
  in on drums and Ringo played tambourine (Don't you think he beat 
  it too hard?. Sure It must have been a hell of a time for him, 
  although he gained due recognition finishing the album. Else, 
  White would only contribute to P.S. I LOVE YOU and an unreleased 
  version of PLEASE PLEASE ME). In this mix, guitars and harmonica 
  come to light and Paul sings much better. John and George play 
  both rhytm on their Gibson J-160's and they match it almost to 
  perfection in a very studied way (they had five days to rehearse 
  the song from the first try on June, 6th).

About the artist behind Love Me Do 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.
