I think you should put an Amin chord in there. And the Cmaj is kinda too happy sounding

I've used other tabs for this song that sounded much more accurate but this one still made some sense..

really good tab. I think that the C major chord that your using may make it a little bit to bright sounding in the verses but words in the chorus. I think a Cmaj7 makes it sounds a lot better.

About this song

"Eleanor Rigby" is a song by The Beatles, originally released on the 1966 album Revolver. The song was primarily written by Paul McCartney, although John Lennon claimed that "the first verse was his and the rest are basically mine." Pete Shotton, a close friend of Lennon who was present at the time, said "Though John (whose memory could be extremely erratic) was to take credit, in one of his last interviews, for most of the lyrics, my own recollection is that 'Eleanor Rigby' was one 'Lennon-McCartney' classic in which John's contribution was virtually nil.
