Back to "Yesterday" - it seems to be resurfacing as the singers struggled a bit.

Anyway - back to the tabs for a refresher.
One of the them have us going up to D# at E 11, which seems odd to me considering the pattern of the rest of it.

What advantage would I have playing that, as opposed to at A 6 or D 1 frets ?

The tone can be a little different but that's about it. Just play where it works best for you as far as going from the note before to the one after is concerned.

Thanks Stephen.

Thought so, but better to be safe.
I'll have a play around and find something that feels right.

I learnt this 100 years ago and never got to play it until a few weeks back.
Never went past the 5th fret if that helps at all.Awesome notes for bass just at the end,I believe in yesterday,C B Bflat F F from memory.Nice clip on YouTube of The Beatles playing it live as a band in Japan with the Hofner.

hence the D# at E 11 seems so jarring. anothing else above 5 on any string.

the singers found it too hard last year so they dropped it. which I didnt mind :) because i was struggling with it big time. this year they want to try again and I've been having a little play around on lounge with it. i've cut it into sections and i think i'm getting it. Well, i'm enjoying it a bit now. :)
I'll keep at it, and may be able to start singing along with it as well at some stage.

I have found just getting the correct notes is what you are after ,not worrying about the tab.I have heard Sir Paul playing stuff live where he plays bass lines in a different octave,eg Get Back.Just take your time,like you say,little sections,and do a little each day and then all of a sudden it will "Come Together" :peep:

Thanks mate.

I was just surprised at the selection in the tab. It brought to mind the question on choosing 'which' location for any particular note.

I actually saw a few different versions and they are quite different. Think I'm settled now on the one I think sounds good, and if I can manage to find my way around and learn it... even better.

Lol. The danger of tab!
The 11 that confused me - and yep it is wrong - is 2x1 or 2x F. Sorted.

I thought I might give this a bump with my own experiences.

After quite a while of false starts., time-wasting and dead-end playing opportunities on gumtree, I stumbled on open mic nights as another alternative (I'd always thought of them as being more for singer/songwriters).

I went to one at a local club this week and was blown away at the relaxed and supportive vibe, and the professionalism of everyone involved. I got up and played a couple of songs and it was awesome fun (I haven't really played live for about 20 years).
I'll definitely be back for more. I reckon it's a great way of getting back into playing live without a lot of the hassles related with trying to find a suitable band. Obviously a proper band would be the ultimate goal but this will do fine for now.

I’ll keep my eyes open, maybe just attend as a viewer til I know what is what.
