                          The Night Before - The Beatles
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Guy Deitch

(C) To Stav, my teacher, he's the one who ear-transcribed it.

Tuning: EADGBe
The only really hard part of the song is the intro.
All the rest is basic.
You'll figure out the strumming easily, just listen to the song
This tab isn't 100% complete, I'll update when I find rest of solo.

The order of the song is:
Intro
Chorus
Verse 1
Chorus
Verse 1
Verse 2
Chorus
Verse 1
Solo
Verse 1
Verse 2
Chorus
Verse 1
Then there's like a little doodle which I'll add later. 

Intro
(When doing the slide, keep your fingers in the C7 position)
e|----- x-----x------x--------x------------x-----x------x--------x---------|
B|-----3-----3------3--------3------------6-----6------6--------6----------|
G|-----5-----5------5--------5------------8-----8------8--------8----------|
D|-----4-----4------4--------4------------7-----7------7--------7----------|
A|-4/5------0----5----------0--------7/8-------0---8-----------0-----------|
E|-----x--5---------x----5----------------x----8--------x----8-------------|
          (D7)                                                   (F7)

e|------ x-----x--------x---------x----------------------------------------|
B|------8-----8--------8---------8-----------------------------------------|
G|------10---10------10--------10------------------------------------------|
D|------9-----9--------9---------9-----------------------------------------|
A|-9/10------0----10-----------0-------------------------------------------|
E|------x--10----------x----10---------------------------------------------|
               (G7)

For this next part, keep your fingers in the A7 position.
e|------ 5--------5--------5--5--------------------------------------------|
B|------5--------5--------5--5---------------------------------------------|
G|------6--------6--------6--6---------------------------------------------|
D|------5--------5--------5--5---------------------------------------------|
A|------7--------7--------7--7---------------------------------------------|
E|--4/5-------0-----------5--5---------------------------------------------|
                       (A7)

 
Chorus
Now, the background chords are the next:
D, C, G, A (all in bare position) X2

Now the tune for the verse:
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------3--5---3-2-------------------------3--5---3-2-------------------|
A|-5-5-5---------------5---4-4-4---5-5-5---------------5---4-4-4-----------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|



 
Verse 1
The chords are:
Bm, Gm, Bm, Gm, D, G7, D
F, F, G.
The F+G, are strummed as ones (like an ending for the verse)

Tune is:
e|---------------------2--------2-3----------------------------------------|
B|--3-2----3--5--------5--3------------------------------------------------|
G|-------4-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-------------3-----------------------------------------------------------|
B|--5b-5--3-----5b--5--3-----3---------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------4--------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then the F, F, G thingy.

The second time you play the chorus, the F, G, G become a D. 


Verse 2
Chords for this verse are:
A7, D7, G, G, Bm7, E7, A7, A7.

Tune for this verse:
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--2---5-4-3---5-4-3-3----------------------------------------------------|
G|----5--------5-----------5-4---------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-------------------------------------5-----------------------------------|
B|--3----5----3----5--------------5----------------------------------------|
G|-----4----4----4---4-/-6-6--7--------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

After playing this once, you play Verse1 one time and then go to solo.
 
Solo

The solo has both a high guitar and a low guitar, both playing the same notes.
In the meantime, I have only half of the high guitar =\
I'll edit in a bit and put on the complete both guitars.

e|-10-------------------------------8---10-10br--8-------------------------|
B|---13br--10-----------------10-------------------------------------------|
G|---------------12br--10---------------------------10br---7---------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
