Most of the beatles transcriptions I've seen out there are close to
with the notable exceptions of
1) The Complete Scores --- white book by Hal Leonard which has most
and is at least good enough for a basis for e.g. playing in a group and
tries to get
capo's and retunings correct
2) The Beatles to a Tee: http://www.to-a-tee.tv/
well researched, concerned with the guitar parts on about 1/3 of the beatle
Goes into questions of tunings, variable speed recording etc..
3) This guy is doing a fantastic job at transcribing mostly the vocal
harmonies of the
beatles but some other stuff too: http://www.youtube.com/user/imcarrying
All the rest is useless... Yellow submarine in Gb -- really?

Accidentally I found a book some minutes ago, again pardon for another
... it's "BEATLES Complete Guitar Edition". Too funny, I star=
learning guitar using the same book's piano edition, I couldn't fin=
but I own it and IIRC the piano edition even for guitarists is much
better. Not only that the guitar version is missing more than the piano
version (same songs, but a completely different niveau), both are also
transposed different to the original songs.
"Yellow Submarine" is missing every "unneeded" chord fo=
r the guitar
edition, but IIRC all chords are written in the piano edition and for a
childish, lovely song like this, comping
/en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comping ] is a must.
OTOH, the original "Real Book" is amazing, but IMO the idea of su=
books is to remember the texts and the "musical tendency". Names =
chords are very helpful, I like them, but they're just a link to how to=
play a song, as notes and tabs are too, they don't say detailed how to<=
play a song.
I guess it was the OP who wrote the python script naming a combination
of notes by different CORRECT names (since the notes only don't provide=
In the end a command line tool still will be airy-fairy.
