IF YOU PUT YOUR CAPO ON THE 2nd FRET (GCEA tuning), you can play along with the videos with minor variations.

McCartney recorded the song during the height of the tensions that marred the sessions for the White Album. On 9 August 1968, he recorded 25 takes singing and playing acoustic guitar simultaneously. Take 24 was perceived to be the best (take 2 later appeared on Anthology 3).  Lennon did not play on the recording, but McCartney said he contributed some words to the song in India.
