Song Info  Day Tripper - The Beatles
Day Tripper - The Beatles
"Day Tripper" is a song by the Beatles, released as a double A-side single with "We Can Work It Out". Both songs were recorded during the sessions for the Rubber Soul album. The single topped the UK Singles Chart and the song peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in January 1966

Under the pressure of needing a new single for the Christmas market, John Lennon wrote much of the music and most of the lyrics, while Paul McCartney worked on the verses.

"Day Tripper" was a typical play on words by Lennon:
Day trippers are people who go on a day trip, right? Usually on a ferryboat or something. But [the song] was kind of ... you're just a weekend hippie. Get it?

In the same interview, Lennon said:
That's mine. Including the lick, the guitar break and the whole bit.

In his 1970 interview with Rolling Stone, however, Lennon used "Day Tripper" as one example of their collaboration, where one partner had the main idea but the other took up the cause and completed it. For his part, McCartney claimed it was very much a collaboration based on Lennon's original idea.

In 1966 McCartney said to Melody Maker that "Day Tripper" and "Drive My Car" (recorded three days prior) were "funny songs, songs with jokes in."

My Guitar SongbookThe Tab and Notation files are my own work and represent my interpretation of the songs. These files are put together and formatted in Notepad, transformed to MS Word and converted to pdf format to save or print the composition.

The Song audio files are gathered from my personal music library. I do not own the copyright of the songs and audio files, all rights belong to the copyright holders – no copyright infringement is intended.

The Lick samples are gathered from talented online teachers and tabbed in the key in which they were found. Many have been transposed in the Key of Am - at the 5th fret (a popular key when playing the Blues) or the Key of Em - the "guitar key" (all open strings belong to this scale and the most common key for Delta Blues).
