Jeff Beck - A Day In The Life tab version 2

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   A Day In The Life - By The Beatles - Preformed by Jeff Beck

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:C0ff1nca3

Tuning:Standard

Time:4/4

*=with text equals note about staff below * above and in text indicates exact 
point being referred to.

Several * have a note that says "lick here". I did not tab these licks or the bluey solo aside from
its start and end. What we have here is the melody with notes matched exactly to Jeff's.
The method of play is not always the same as Jeff's due to the fact he has a tremolo system
far beyond what most have. You can chose to use bends and whammy to get the notes that
I would otherwise pick if you want.
Jeff at point slides and bend to notes that he picked before, you can throw that 
in if you want or not
again I just wanted to provide an exact note reference for the core song.
This is pretty close to exactly how its played, especially compared to the other tabs I found.

This is the performance I tabbed below. Its the version he played at Ronnie Scott's. I 
find it to be one of the most powerful performances I've seen.
I was in awe when I first watched the dvd.
