Yesterday

Lennon/McCartney
Album: Help!
You need to tune all strings down one tone for this - so when you play a G shape it actually comes out in the key of F. It's important to do this - you can't just play the thing in F using normal tuning - you need some bass notes which you can only get by tuning down a tone and playing as if in G. (I'll write all the chord names as if in standard tuning)
Chords used:
       {eADGBE}
G       320033
F#7     242252
