I have a question about Yesterday from Anthology.
In the beginning, when Paul is saying the key and the chords, he says it's in G, but it will be in F for whoever he's talking to. What does he mean when he says that, and is it really in G? I'm not sure if I have perfect pitch (I think I do) or really, really good relative pitch, but it's always sounded like it's in F to me.

The person he's speaking to could have a capo on his guitar.
I've heard of this version before.
The answer to that is: Yesterday was originally played on a de-tuned guitar meaning it is not in standard tuning. The guitar was tuned down to allow Paul to play the song in F using easier chords fingerings.
My Yesterday Anthology track has George explaining what they're about to do that they've never ever done before.
