    Vocal/Piano/Guitar "Song Books" usually give you 'piano bass'(what a piano player might play with his Left Hand); sometimes, what's transcribed is close enough for what you can play on a bass...most of the time, not.

    Check out The Beatles Complete Scores...though there are some typos & maybe a few errors, it's worth having, IMO.

    There are a couple of Transcribed Scores Bass Books for Beatles' tunes...IIRC, there was a "Red" one & a "Green" one.

    Check out www.bassbooks.com &/or www.halleonard.com

    There are a few Bass transcribed/tabbed Beatles books available on Amazon. There are ones for the old Red & Blue greatest hits albums and also a couple of ones that have various different songs on them. I own both the Red & the Blue one and have found them to be fairly accurate. They also include the lyrics for the songs as well as standard notation transcriptions and tab for bass. ;)

    Have Fun!
