    Does anyone know how to play "In My Life," by The Beatles on bass? By that I mean the spoken words. I have the first part of the verse...

    All right gang, first post from the newcomer...

    I happen to be going through the Beatles songbooks remembering how to read notation bass and treble clef.

    The song has an AB format, 2 parts and is in the key of A. You have the lead line for the first part, here are the chords for the second part, each is 1 measure in 4/4 time.

    F#m D G A

    F#m B7 Dm A repeat to the beginning

    I tried this tab thang on the computer and it seems to take up way too much time, if you want the notes, post back and I will help out.

    edit: but if someone could figure out the solo and the little guitar intro on bass, that'd be awesome.
