Day Tripper     Beatles



TAB: Day Tripper
MUSIC BY: The Beatles (Released as a Single) 
TABBED BY: Eggman - 16 Dec 1998 (eggman98@hotmail.com)
This is that note that seems to appear before every tab found on the
Internet telling you how good the song is ...like you didn't know!

I know that Riff 3 isn't exactly right and probably doesn't strum the
C# and B chords, but if you're playing on your own then it sounds ok!
Alternatively, you could carry the pattern of the first part of the
riff throughout.
