From the recording Away With Words

The Beatles' songs sound simple - until you try to play them. "With a Little Help from My Friends" is syncopated in such a way that the notes of the melody don't necessarily line up with the downbeats. This poses quite a challenge for fingerstyle guitarists. I found some sheet music on the internet (, then adjusted it to my playing style. (Read: I slowed it down and eliminated all the hard parts.)
