There is a very easy Beatles song, “She's A Woman” that I'm trying to figure out the strumming pattern for. I can tell there is Palm Muting, but, I don't know if the pattern I'm hearing is 2 guitars or one but I'll take a stab at it. It sound like D, Palm Mute, UD ,Palm Mute.
X = Palm Mute
DXUDX

Does that sound right?

Not far off - it's kind of reggae/ska influenced, so try playing on the off beat.....

:D :D :D

It's a B-side from "I Feel Fine"

Right - I had forgotten the name of the song too but I remembered some of the lyrics and I recalled how I thought I heard alot of palm muting in the song:
Verse 1:
A7 D7 A7
My love don't give me presents
A7 D7 A7
I know that she's no peasant
D7
Only ever has to give me
Love forever and forever
A7 D7 A7
My love don't give me presents
E7
Turn me on when I get lonely
D7
People tell me that's she's only
A7 D7 A7
foolin' I know she isn't
Verse 2:
A7 D7 A7
She don't give boys the eye
A7 D7 A7
She hates to see me cry
D7
She is happy just to hear me
Say that I will never leave her
A7 D7 A7
She don't give boys the eye

If you want I'll post the tab tomorrow - this is a (clip) copy from the (Beatles) songbook that I downloaded somewhere in this forum? Also, I don't remember what (US) album it ("She's a woman") was on originally but one of the takes is on Anthology 2 on disc 1.
They are coming out with another BOX set for the US Capitol albums. I'd rather have the UK versions.

OK - I sorta get it and can hear the reggae part. I don't know what ska is?

I'm probably falling into a trap here Rod.

It was a B side to "I Feel Fine" I think. Don't you remember them playing it/miming it (They hated miming by the way) on Salisbury Plain dressed as soldiers in the film "Help" Its a great Paul penned rocker which never made it to the Help Album.

Here's a useful link I found:

I'm trying to post the tab but when I preview it, it doesn't save the spacing?

Instead of posting the tab here is the link:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/b/beatles/shes_a_woman_tab.htm

It's tabbed by PJVillanueva. He probably has the most accurate Beatles tabs on the internet.
