----------------------------------------------------------------- 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.
