I'm not sure how to write musical notation so I hope this isn't too confusing:

 

E1 D1 E B E D1 A E C#1 A

 

That's the best I could and I think it sounds pretty good.

 

Whenever I can figure out how to play a song on my own it's always pretty exciting. The only other Beatles song I've figured out was "I Am The Walrus " (D#1 C#1 F#1 B A D1 B, While simultaneously playing the same note one octave above.) I'm now trying to figure "Day Tripper ".

 

Well anyway, it may not be that big of a deal to you guys, but I'm psyched. What do you think?

The riff of Day Tripper goes (notes): E, G G# B E D, B F# B D E. Then repeats that, up a perfect fourth, beginning on A. Not really sure if your Want To Tell You is right, can't decipher how you're noting it.

The scale goes like this:

 

C, C#, D, D#, E, F, F#, G, G#, A, Bb, B, C1, C#1, D1, D#1, E1, F1, F#1, G1, G#1, A1, Bb1, B1, C2... ect.

 

Sorry about the confusion!

Jackson, I agree with Paulsbass - there's no greater feeling than figuring out a song.

"Into the Sky with Diamonds" (the Beatles and the Race to the Moon – a history)
