Default "In My Life" Finger Style

My daughter has asked me to record an instrumental, solo guitar version of The Beatles "In My Life" to use in her wedding ceremony next month. Does anyone have a version or a reference (tab or video) they would like to share? Thanks all!
Cheers,
Mike

Laurence Juber does a nice arrangement in standard tuning.
Stephen Bennett also does a version on his Beatles album.
A quick Google will bring up the tabs.

I think the Stephen Bennett version is played on his harp guitar.
The Laurence Juber tab is in his Popular Songs for Acoustic Guitar book.

I think Dave Matthews actually did a fingerstyle arrangement of the song at that big John Lennon tribute they did on TV several years ago.

Not sure if it was instrumental or not but I remember that my dad, who loved John Lennon, was impressed by that performance.

Thanks to all! The Lick-n-Riff looks like it will fit the bill perfectly. I appreciate the prompt input. AGF rocks!
