This is my cover of 'Day Tripper’ by The Beatles! Unfortunately I’m not a very good singer, so it’s just a guitar cover of the song! I tried my best to put the song backing my playing without having the music overpower my playing so I hope it’s alright (somehow I managed to get a stereo-ish separation with my terrible recording skills!) Sorry for the mistakes and for the false start at the beginning, I just started playing guitar so I thought I’d give it a try! I hope you enjoy it! Please reblog and like it to get the votes up! Thank-you!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
“We played all over South Wales and played at Abergavenny Town Hall, as it was called then, probably once a month. We got to know the entertainments manager Eddie Tattersall, and one day he called and said: “I’ve got a gig for you.” I said we were already booked that day, and he said ‘it’s The Beatles.’ I said ‘I’ll unbook it’!”
“It was really happening for them, and I don’t know how Eddie managed to land them. He was a real go-getter. We were absolutely thrilled to get the chance to play with them. You already knew they were special. I’d seen them on the television and thought they were fantastic.
“On the night the anticipation, the atmosphere, was incredible. We went on and people were screaming and shouting. I believe there were about 600 there, but I’m not sure they paid much attention to us!
“We shared a dressing room with them, and it was an unusual night, because John Lennon was recording (TV show) Jukebox Jury, and was in London. Their manager Brian Epstein arranged a helicopter (It landed in Bailey Park). It was quite late by then and we’d been chatting with Paul, George and Ringo, who were funny and friendly. While they were waiting they signed lots of autograph books that were taken to the dressing room by their fans, and we had our photograph taken with them.
“When they took to the stage after Lennon arrived, the hall erupted. They’d been contracted for two 20-minute sets, but because of John Lennon’s late arrival, they did one show of 35-40 minutes. At the end, Eddie Tattersall presented Paul McCartney with a birthday cake to celebrate his 21st birthday which was on June 18. Everyone was still screaming when the curtains were pulled.”

Please Please Me:
you're cool and care about your hairdo, but you've got a softer side. you giggle when boys look at you from across the room.
With the Beatles:
you really like the Beatles, but for some reason you don't wanna hear them do their own songs. but you really, really like the Beatles.
A Hard Day's Night:
nobody really knows the real you. they think you're a suave, energetic socialite. deep down, you're a farm hand with a piece of wheat sticking out of your mouth, trying not to cry. you can cry if you want. it's okay to cry.
Beatles for Sale:
you think your friends all secretly hate you, and you think strangers all secretly love you. also, George is your favorite Beatle and you like hearing Paul scream.
you really like ironic humor and feeling sorry for yourself, and you think people would be happier without you in the picture. you need to understand people care about you, and you should learn to like yourself. but proposing to a girl in a jumping 12 bar is wrong. don't do that.
when people ask you what kind of music you listen to, you say you like all different kinds.
crawling into bed, you're half asleep before you remember to set your alarm. you do it with one eye open.
people say you're really together, but you know you're not. you wonder why people think you're seamless. you have so many seams. it seems they don't see your seams.
Magical Mystery Tour:
your parents fought a lot in front of you. i'm sorry.
The White Album:
you're greedy and like the blues.
this album says a lot more about you than i have room to type about sorry you can pm me
you won't stop trying until you're sitting at the top in a gold encrusted throne made of the skulls of your enemies and the good wishes of your friends. you don't know how to rap.
Let It Be:
you think you have an intimate relationship with somewhere between 1 and 4 of the Beatles in a way they'll never understand. you watch a movie again if it makes you cry.
