I teach ukulele classes at East High School up in Anchorage, Alaska. Yesterday we performed a bunch of arrangements I made of popular Beatles tunes. We performed "Eight Days a Week", "Ticket to Ride", "Michelle", "A Day in the Life", and "Hey Jude". Each arrangement has eight parts: Uke 1, Uke 2, Uke 3, 8-String, Baritone, Low G, uBass, Drums.

Here's a link to the full score of "A Day in the Life" and a link to the clip on YouTube. I can post the rest of the scores if you like, but unfortunately the other recordings were cut short in places.

Enjoy.

Really impressive, thanks for posting! I play in an instrumental-only ensemble and know how much work it is. That's really generous of you to share the score - if you are willing to post the rest please do, I'd be really interested in seeing the different parts. My ensemble is usually just Uke 1 (reentrant), Uke 2 (low G), and chords, but I still have hopes that some day we'll incorporate baritone and other parts as well.
