A Day In The Life Tab

   
Artist: Beatles
Song: A Day In The Life
Album: Sargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

Ok, this is my first tab so please go easy on me. Also please just rate it on the
chords. I made up to solos, so you can play them over the orchestra part, they should
go along with it, but not all parts of it are mimicking the orchestra, but I tried my
best. So, please don't judge this on the solos, or the parts after u hit the final E
chord too, those are also optional.

The number below the Chord name is how many times you should strum the chord. Listen
to the song for the strumming pattern, but it's mostly even strums.
When you play Em, and Em7 strum the chord, the on the second one strum it harder, the
on the third strum it lighter, then on the fourth hit it harder. For Asus2 it's usually
strum light, the on the next three hit it harder, then light, the next three are harder.
But listen to the song for the exact strumming  pattern, these are just the ones I use
when playing it, so enjoy.
