I made this version of Yellow Submarine from the way the
piano version sounded in The Complete Beatles, I have no
idea how similar it is to the original version.  But it
works for me!

All the notes and chords that fall on the off beat should   
have a dotted rhythm, i.e. instead of two eighth notes play 
a dotted eighth note and a sixteenth note.  If you've ever  
heard the song this rhythm should be obvious.  Make sure you
look for the ^ marks to show the beats, don't go by the

I haven't been able to come up with a good rhythm for the
chorus, so I encourage you to be creative rather than
following my boring strum pattern.
