The Beatles - Blue jay way

THE BEATLES - BLUE JAY WAY ========================== Words & Music by George Harrison Copyright 1967 Northern Songs Open C6-Tuning: C-G-C-G-A-e tab by rosh85 This song evolves around a C chord for most of the time throughout the song with the overtones to back George Harrison's lead vocals and thus constantly changing the chord. Since it was composed on a hammond organ, this is an attempt to transfer it to a guitar. Since it's the most comfortable way to play it,I've chosen an open C6 tuning (C-G-C-G-A-e).
