Strawberry Fields Forever   -    The Beatles
                 -----------------------------------------------------




                                 From the album 'Magical Mystery Tour'




There are two other versions of this in the archives, but none are in the 
right key. I thought a great song such as this deserved a proper tab in the 
archives.


Because the recording of this song involved a lot of playing around with 
tape speeds, you need to tune down your guitar by a whole step.

So instead of tuning your bottom string to E, tune to D, then tune the other 
strings to this by playing at the 5th/4th fret (you know the routine ...)

You should end up tuned to DGCFAD.

This means that the song is based on the C chord for the guitar, but it
ends up being in the key of Bb.



I've tried to give a guitar part that does justice to all the things that are 
going on in the song. For the first bit it's fairly straight forward since the 
song has a guitar playing here - but later on I've tried to tab out a guitar 
version of what the cellos and trumpets are doing.

Of course you can't play all of the song on just one guitar - but you can do 
a pretty good job. I've written the chords above each line of tab if you just 
want to strum along, and the words are underneath the line of tab.  



Intro :
---------

This is played on the mellotron, but you can do it fairly easily on guitar.

Linking phrase :

This is the little downwards scale played on a harp-like instrument.
Leave all strings to sustain as much as possible.
