Great tabs, I've been trying to find this for guitar but it's always been a no go.

Question: N.C?
What is this?
I might just be daft, so I apologies in advanced.

About this song

"A Day in the Life" is a song by the British rock band The Beatles, written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, credited to Lennon/McCartney. The song appears as the final track on their album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The song includes portions originally authored independently by Lennon and McCartney, and two cacophonous, part-improvised, orchestral crescendos. Lennon was inspired by newspaper articles on the death of Tara Browne, and a civic plan to fill four thousand potholes in Blackburn.
