  THE BEATLES - DAY TRIPPER (Lennon/McCartney) Released as a double
                A-side single w WE CAN WORK IT OUT on December 3rd 
                1965.

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

  Tabbed by:PJVillanueva





  This song was made in a haste when they were asked urgently for a 
  new single. The solo, a climactic crescendo, was played this time
  by John, while George played a long ascending scale. Ringo plays
  great fills, fours in the bass drum and snare during the 1st part
  of the choruses (00:32, etc) and a very curious two sixteenth note 
  rebound on the 2nd (00:39, etc). Although it was supposed to be a
  double a-side single, WE CAN WORK IT OUT had a greater airplay in
  the end, but this track is a rave. And just listen to that third 
  chorus: John's falsetto melody is simply astounding.

Great tab, except you have two bars too many in the solo, there should only be 12! Take away the fourth line of the seven lines of the solo in your tab and it'll be right!
