I learned the tune from a recording by the great pianist Marian McPartland. I was pretty disappointed with the Hal Leonard book the arrangements seem to be mostly the melody and a bass line with very simple harmonies if any at all, its true that they do include most of the recognizable hooks from the original songs but still the few I attempted to play sounded too “lightweight”, I probably wouldn’t even be able to impress my mother with them.

I hope you enjoy my arrangement! Follow the advice given in this thread and you’ll be light years ahead. My first published book of arrangements was “Neil Diamond for Classical Guitar”.

I think they did a great job, and I hope they are an inspiration to any adult considering music lessons. Songs based on three part harmony can fun, but sometimes a little challenging to arrange.

The only negative I can see is that there are no lyrics which makes it harder to figure out “where you are” in the song, I’ve been laryr the melody notes through first in order to get oriented.

Guitar Solo Paperback arr. When I started collecting tunes of his to arrange, I was as surprised as just about anyone to learn that Neil Diamond wrote this big hit for the Monkees.

In trying to research these two books it was very difficult to keep them straight, in part because A m a z o n and other retailers liked to mix and match the cover art work. Although “Fingerpicking the Beatles” also seems to be liked. One of them has 30 songs and the other has I’m particularly happy with my mini version of the upright bass part at the beginning.

I recently heard Graham Nash perform this one solo and decided to give it a try. And how about Stevn King’s arrangements? It’s very good song and a lot of fun to play.

I’d never heard of the Eric Schoenberg transcriptions but was eager to find them and simply typed in “Fingerpicking Beatles by Eric Schoenberg” into Google and the very first page it returns has ordering information.
