  Tabbed by:PJVillanueva





  At 10 pm, on February, 11th 1963, The Beatles had been working 
  for twelve hours (They had done 13 takes of HOLD ME TIGHT, but 
  it was finally discarded until some months later, and then they
  hastily recorded four covers (ANNA, BOYS, CHAINS and BABY IT'S 
  YOU). To complete their first album they needed five songs, so 
  there was one left and although they were already out of their 
  scheduled time at the studio, George Martin took them to the 
  canteen and asked them for a number which could be done in one
  or two takes (John was already on the very verge of loosing his  
  voice). They decided on The Isley Brothers hit TWIST AND SHOUT,
  which they were doing on their act for some months. With the
  studio staff as their audience, they delivered the most raving
  performance those studio men would see in all their lives. They
  wanted to try for a second time, but John just could not sing 
  any more. (I think that second take was not at all needed).  





  Well, shake it up, baby, now, 
 (Shake it up, baby)
  Twist and shout.

    In the verses, John used to play G, A and A7 chords with his 
    thumb for the bass note and an index half barre for the first 
    and second strings. He muted the fourth string with his ring 
    finger on the fifth string. For those who find it hard for a
    start, it is easier playing those chords barred (six string 
    barre) The muting is done the same way.

About the artist behind Twist And Shout 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.
