The Beatles: Fixing A Hole

Current mood: disappointed

Another weird factoid, this TAB was rejected over a week ago.  Despite every second day requests to UG Tabs review, it's still sitting as rejected?  So what happens in the Summer holiday season in the USA, ...does everyone go to ground?

I really hope that it goes re-reviewed, soon?  It took some time to develop and it's 'notialy' correct.  Let's see what happens?  Otherwise, it'll sit in the 'archive' cupboard!

'Disappointed,

Notes.
1. This version arose from an attempt to harmonise the melody on an acoustic without barre chords.  It differs structurally from any previous versions in that it matches the distinct three chord outro on the Instrumental.  It also adds some extra texture to the latter part of each Verse and adds a haunting quality to the Bridges.
2. The transitional chords 'Dm7-Dm6-G7/D' are successively created by lifting off one finger at a time from the three-fingered 'Dm7'.
