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.

Do you want to know a secret? Read my username backwards. ~ ~ ~ - - - . . . - - - ~ ~ ~ Also known as Egg-Rock, Egg-Roll, E-George, Eggy...

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.

EDIT: Can somebody answer why my Anthology track of Yesterday has a different intro, one where George remarks about something they have never ever done before.

"And in the End the Love you take is equal to the Love you make"
"When I was a robber *Piano Chord* in Boston Place"
"Let's hope this turns out pretty darn good huh"
"Pete may be the best, but Ringo is the star"
Paul:"Don't be nervous John"
John:"I 'm not"
