The main things to look out for here are a couple of awfully tricky patterns after the solo.

Verse 3A is one of the main sections that can trip you up. Watch out for the tricky rhythm of the pull-offs after Lennon sings "you can indicate everything you see" for the first time. Immediately afterwards there's a complicated hammer-on section that is easy to perform but definitely needs lots of practising.

Verse 3B isn't too bad, but there are one or two things to be wary of. There's a sneaky hammer-on that you might normally be tempted to strum after the section where you repeatedly strum RY and hammer-on to YB. Similarly, there's an awkward pull-off right as Lennon finishes singing "you can syndicate any boat you row, I told you so".

It's smooth sailing from there until the dreaded outro. Oh yes! There is a trill, and it wants to make you cry. You absolutely need to practise this section, or you may very well end up gently weeping all over your plastic guitar. You'll face a RY chord, and a trill that alternates from Y,B,Y,B to a slightly faster R,Y,R,Y,R,Y, etc. I find it helps to begin by hitting the chord with the first and second fingers of your fretboard hand on the red and yellow buttons, respectively. Hold them there and have your third finger at the ready over the blue. Strum the yellow and then tap the blue when you need to. Pull off at the red so you're left with only your first finger down, and then concentrate on tapping the yellow with your second finger when necessary.

Phew. An over-elaborate description, but hopefully it'll help. Best of luck! And when in doubt; picture the fingers.
