Beatles guitar tabIn a sneak peek at their upcoming special collector's edition "The Beatles 100 Greatest Songs," Rolling Stone offered the top 10 at, with editorial commentary on each. Here's the list (click on titles to see the guitar tab):

10. While My Guitar Gently Weeps
9.  Come Together
8.  Let It Be
7.  Hey Jude
6.  Something
5.  In My Life
4.  Yesterday
3.  Strawberry Fields Forever
2.  I Want to Hold Your Hand
1.  A Day in the Life

Normally, I think Rolling Stone's lists of these sort are pretty much rubbish (ever see their top 100 guitarists list? Ugh ...), but I must give them props on this one. Truly timeless selections.

Still, we at tend to think of things in terms of guitar, so here are our Top 10 Beatles guitar songs (click title to get guitar tab):

10. Helter Skelter
9.   Drive My Car
8.   Here Comes the Sun
7.   I Want You (She's So Heavy)
6.   Norwegian Wood
5.   I Feel Fine
4.   Day Tripper
3.   Something 
2.   Blackbird
1.   While My Guitar Gently Weeps

And the award for greatest guitar interpretation of a Beatles song goes to the one, the only ... Jeff Beck, for his mind-blowing take on "A Day in the Life." His version of "She's a Woman" is pretty hair-raising, too!

What are your top 10? Discuss ...

"Paperback Writer" deserves to be on this list.
