B = bend up first note to second. . . R = release first note to second. . . In both cases, pick only first note Magic E Chord for use in AYBCS. Note that this is a real open, twangy sounding E5 chord. . . sounds best on a Rickenbacker 325! Also sounds great in Day Tripper.

On June 10, 1995, Richard Fowler (fowler@newshost.iphase.com) contributed the following arrangement of the lead riff or tab for AYBCS

I believe both Marc Hertzberg and Richard Fowler were on the right track insofar as the melody is concerned and I referred to their versions to help confirm what I felt I was hearing on the Re- volver version of And Your Bird Can Sing.However, I can't see George Harrison zipping up and down the fretboard to play these beautiful riffs. I believe his riffs were confined to the higher areas around the "Magic E Chord" discussed by Marc Hertzberg. Also, the middle is based on easily played chords and with easy transitions. Also, I felt that there are corrections which need to be made to the words.Anyway, this is the arrangement I have come up with for this beautifully written song. I hope you enjoy it! Any comments are cer- tainly welcome. Phil Ogden (Masp99@AOL.COM) AND YOUR BIRD CAN SING -- REVOLVER VERSION LENNON & MCCARTNEY Intro:

NOTES: e.g., 9/10\9 = Play 9 slide up to 10 slide down to 9. I sometimes substitute 9H10P9 e.g., 9p8 = 9 pull off to 8 * means strike base E string only before playing full E chord
