Tuning: Standard

The Beatles
Pretty Little Head (1986)
(Paul McCartney/Eric Stewart)

Single release (extended version on "Press to Play")

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

This song has beautiful chords and there are a lot of interesting ideas, for 
example the loop running through the whole song. I like the single version 
better for its great lead vocal, which is missing from the mix featured on 
the album. Sadly, the mix from the single hasn't been released officially on 
CD. Listen to it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2yX8woDEDQ.

It's a keyboard song and it is in Cm. 
The chords for the verse look like this:
| F7sus4/Bb | Ab | Eb/G | Fm | Ab/Eb | Bb/D | % | Cm |

For guitar I'd suggest to transpose it to Am so you can have fun playing. 
If you want to play along to the original, put on a capo on the 3rd fret.

Enjoy!
