Lady Madonna

Here's the next song for the week! It's called Lady Madonna, originally performed by The Beatles, guitar rendition by Tommy Emmanuel. It's an absolutely crazy song, and if you don't believe me, here's a link that speaks for itself http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYzajpeAWuA.

Took me quite a while to learn this song, because it's significantly more difficult than Day Tripper. Uses the "boom chick" method, but the bass line's a little harder, and the melody's definitely worse. Really felt a sense of achievement learning this song. This is a simplified version without the improvisations of Tommy... He's insane. Tabs are below. Enjoy!
