From: Glen Norman Pavan <> artist: Beatles title: Her Majesty album: Abbey Road tuning: standard her majesty's a pretty nice girl but she doesn't have a lot to say her majesty's a pretty nice girl but she changes from day to day I wanna tell her that I love her a lot but I got to get a belly full of wine her majesty's a pretty nice girl someday I'm gonna make her mine ooh yeah someday I'm gonna make her mine possible version one: the basic bass line (I know this song has no bass, but this is what it'd be) parts above the brackets are played faster to fit in two beats D--0-----------------------------------------------------------5-5-5 A--5----5-4-2-0---0-5--0-2-4-5-4-2-0---0-0-0-2---2----5-5---2------- E---------------0--------------------0---------2---2------3--------- ^___^ ^___^ D----------------------- A---5-2--0-5-2---0-5---- E-------0------0-----5-- possible version two: octaves G--7-----7-6-4-2---2-7--2-4-6-7---6-4-2---2-2-2-4---4---7-7---4----12-12-12- D--7-------------2----------------------2---------4---4-----5-------------- A--5-----5-4-2-0---0-5--0-2-4-5---4-2-0---0-----2---2---5-5---2--10-------- E----------------0----------------------0---------2---2-----3------------- ^___^ ^_________^ G--7-5---2-7-5---2-7-- D------2-------2------ A--5-2---0-5-2---0-5-- E------0-------0-----5 possible version three: upper fretboard tapping I know jack shit about tapping... I've seen one friend do it and it blew my mind; this is NOT the kind where you tap with the right hand high on the fretboard and the left hand low on the fretboard doing a counter line. Stu Hamm I'm not, nor aspire to be. This is for fun. And it helps if you keep your left index finger across the 12th fret of both D and G strings to retain clarity and harmonics L=left hand R=right hand R L L R R R L L L R L R R R R R L L R G--19---19-18-16-14----14-19---14-16-18----19-18-16-14----14------- D--12---------------14---------------------------------14-19-19-19- ^------^ R R R R R R R L R R R L L R R L L R R G--16----16----19-19----16--24-24-24---19-16----14-19--16----14-19---- D-----16----16-------17----------------------14-----------14-------19- ^-------^ possible version four: upper fretboard octave tapping sounds like shit... don't bother... I'll post more ways of playing this as they come about... if you bothered to read through this all please send me a note to -I'm here, I'm queer, I play 5-string bass
