The Beatles
A Hard Day's Night
(Lennon/McCartney)

From "A Hard Day's Night" (1964)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT April 2015:
Went through the comments section and tried to update this tab using the corrections there 
as it is one of the versions on UG that are visited frequently. 
Some of the voicings are really  difficult to identify. There are several guitar tracks 
some of which might use differing voicings (maybe a 12-string, too?). Some options are
suggested below. Choose whatever sounds good to you. Moreover, there is a special suggestion 
made by the original submitter of this tab. Sounds nice, even though it might not be
what is played on the Beatles' recording.


CHORDS / SPECIAL VOICINGS
              EADGBe
G7sus4      : 353533  or  330011
G           : 3x0003
C           : x32013 
F           : 133211 
  or F(add9): xx3213 or 133011 (on a 12-string this voicing would include the high f AND g notes)
C           : x32010
D           : xx0232
Bm          : x24432 
Em          : 022000
D7sus4      : xx0213 (= Fadd9/D)
Dm7         : xx0211 (= F/D)


Another possibility which gives a special flavour in the verses is: G - Cadd9 - F6add9. 
This is very easy to play: Leave your pinkie and ring finger down, and it's easy.
G       : 3x0033
Cadd9   : x32033
F6add9  : xx3233
