HAPPINESS IS A WARM GUN Note on fingerpicking part in beginning of the song: the bottom three strings (low E, A, and D) are only struck by the thumb. Your thumb should have a steady motion and strike on each downbeat: strike the A string then the D string then the E string then the D string--thats four count--then start over again. So the key to knocking this is getting comfortable with the thumb motion. Once you get that, add in the remaining strings using your other fingers. By the way, this is the same pattern John uses on Dear Prudence! Oh, when the Dm comes, the thumb just moves up a string so that it plucks the A, D, and G strings; other than that the pattern is the same. Have fun! Fingerpicking pattern:

========================================================================= MARTHA,MY DEAR Notes: This is mostly a piano & orchestra performance on the White album. I've always liked the song, so came up with this arrangement for guitar accompaniment. Any ideas for fleshing this out, improving or arranging an intro for it, let me know. Also, this is my first full attempt at writing guitar tab notation, so hope its close enough for government work . I use capo at 3rd fret (chords listed are transposed to 1st position) The song is really in key of E flat on the record (not C) Martha my dear though I spend my days in conver-sa-tion C C5 C6 C C5 C6 Em Em9 Dsus4 D D5 Dsus4
