Yesterdays
Guns N' Roses
Use your illusion II

Here's a rather simple GN'R tune off of UYI II according to my ear (sans solo)
I don't remember what notation we agreed on in this group so I'm just going
to use H for hammer on.  I don't have time to post tabs/chords to songs
often, but if anyone wants more GN'R I can post some songs when I have the time.

Call this Rhythm Figure A if you want
   D                                                  C               G5

Chords:  Cadd2=> x32030 and
            G5=> 3x0033

The song goes like this
2x Rhythm Figure A

enter lyrics
(play Rythm Figure A where you see D C G5)

D                   C                    G5
Yesterday there was so many things I was never told
D                              C          G5
Now that I'm startin' to learn I feel I'm growin' old
D                      Cadd2                G5
'Cause yesterday's got nothin' for me.  Old pictures that I'll always see
D                            G5
Time just fades the pages in my book of memories.

(Insert Verse 2)

Chorus (underline indicates drag out the word,
        C5 is just power chord on 3rd fret):

A               B   C5                              G5
Ooh,____________yesterday's________ got nothin' for me.__________
A               B   C5                              G5
Yesterday's________ooh,__ __________got nothin' for me.__________

Chords for solo are (if someone wants I can post tab of how I play the solo):
Bm   G   Bm   GBm   C#m D    E

Other lyrics:

2nd verse:
Prayers in my pocket and no hand in destiny.
I'll keep movin' along with no time to plant my feet.
'Cause yesterday's got nothin' for me.
Old pictures that I'll always see.
Some things could be better if we'd just let them be.

3rd verse:
Yesterday there were so many things I was never shown.
Suddenly this time I found I'm on the streets and I'm alone.
Yesterday's got nothin' for me. Old pictures that I'll always see.
I ain't got time to reminisce old novelties.

The song structure is basically:

2x Rythm Figure A
