(C) To Stav, my teacher, he's the one who ear-transcribed it.

Tuning: EADGBe
The only really hard part of the song is the intro.
All the rest is basic.
You'll figure out the strumming easily, just listen to the song
This tab isn't 100% complete, I'll update when I find rest of solo.

The order of the song is:
Intro
Chorus
Verse 1
Chorus
Verse 1
Verse 2
Chorus
Verse 1
Solo
Verse 1
Verse 2
Chorus
Verse 1
Then there's like a little doodle which I'll add later.

E|--4/5-------0-----------5--5---------------------------------------------|
                       (A7)

 
Chorus
Now, the background chords are the next:
D, C, G, A (all in bare position) X2

Now the tune for the verse:
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------3--5---3-2-------------------------3--5---3-2-------------------|
A|-5-5-5---------------5---4-4-4---5-5-5---------------5---4-4-4-----------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|



 
Verse 1
The chords are:
Bm, Gm, Bm, Gm, D, G7, D
F, F, G.
The F+G, are strummed as ones (like an ending for the verse)

Tune is:
e|---------------------2--------2-3----------------------------------------|
B|--3-2----3--5--------5--3------------------------------------------------|
G|-------4-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-------------3-----------------------------------------------------------|
B|--5b-5--3-----5b--5--3-----3---------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------4--------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then the F, F, G thingy.

The second time you play the chorus, the F, G, G become a D. 


Verse 2
Chords for this verse are:
A7, D7, G, G, Bm7, E7, A7, A7.

Tune for this verse:
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--2---5-4-3---5-4-3-3----------------------------------------------------|
G|----5--------5-----------5-4---------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-------------------------------------5-----------------------------------|

G|-----4----4----4---4-/-6-6--7--------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

After playing this once, you play Verse1 one time and then go to solo.
 
Solo

The solo has both a high guitar and a low guitar, both playing the same notes.
In the meantime, I have only half of the high guitar =
I'll edit in a bit and put on the complete both guitars.

e|-10-------------------------------8---10-10br--8-------------------------|

About the artist behind The Night Before Tab:

The Beatles were a pop and rock group from Liverpool, England formed in 1960. Primarily consisting of John Lennon (rhythm guitar, vocals), Paul McCartney (bass guitar, vocals), George Harrison (lead guitar, vocals), and Ringo Starr (drums, vocals) throughout their career, The Beatles are recognised for leading the mid-1960s musical "British Invasion" into the United States. Although their initial musical style was rooted in 1950s rock and roll and homegrown skiffle, the group explored genres ranging from Tin Pan Alley to psychedelic rock. Their clothes, styles, and statements made them trend-setters, while their growing social awareness saw their influence extend into the social and cultural revolutions of the 1960s. After the band broke up in 1970, all four members embarked on solo careers.

The Beatles are one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed bands in the history of popular music. The Beatles are the best-selling musical group in history. In the United Kingdom, The Beatles released more than 40 different singles, albums, and EPs that reached number one, earning more number one albums (15) than any other group in UK chart history. This commercial success was repeated in many other countries; their record company, EMI, estimated that by 1985 they had sold over one billion records worldwide.[1] According to the Recording Industry Association of America, The Beatles have sold more albums in the United States than any other band.[2] In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked The Beatles number one on its list of 100 Greatest Rock & Roll Artists of All Time. According to that same magazine, The Beatles' innovative music and cultural impact helped define the 1960s, and their influence on pop culture is still evident today.
