Eleanor Rigby Tab
Artist: The Beatles
Track: Eleanor Rigby
Album: Revolver
Tabber: Andrew Biles

I really want to produce a cover of this track but with guitars rather than the string
instruments they used in the song, so I've been painstakingly working at this.  The
bassier notes are the ones I've had most trouble working out, but I think I've got them
quite close (if you know any corrections, please comment).  The octaves are most likely
played by two string instruments in the original recording as well, but it just saved
space putting them on one.  The hardest sections to work out were probably at 1:30 and
1:39, but I EQ'd the track to try and get it and I think I've got it almost spot on.
Some of the timing may be slightly out, but hopefully you will be able to work out where
each note goes as most of it is quite easy to hear.

About the artist behind Eleanor Rigby 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.
