Guitar Chords For Beginners – Yellow Submarine

Yellow Submarine by the Beatles is an enjoyable song to play for beginners. This tune provides an ideal opportunity to practice strumming techniques while simultaneously improving hand-eye coordination.

It features some tricky chord progressions, yet these should not be unmanageable by novice players. Furthermore, it contains some interesting chromaticism such as an audacious leap from F major to E minor (a descending sequence of fifths).

All You Need is Love

The Beatles song All You Need Is Love contains several chords that may prove challenging for beginning guitarists, yet if you can lock into its groove and follow Paul McCartney’s bass line this shouldn’t prove too difficult a tune to learn.

The verse section can be particularly difficult, since its chords move faster than in chorus sections. The key is keeping your rhythm consistent.

This song, composed in G Major, is slightly more complex than your average song; scoring above average in Chord Complexity, Melodic Complexity, Chord Progression Novelty, and Chord-Bass Melody.

Here Comes the Sun

The Beatles’ 1969 song ‘Here Comes the Sun’ exudes optimism, reminding us that even during winter’s darkest hours, new light will eventually return with renewed energy and life.

George Harrison created “My Boy George” at Eric Clapton’s garden on an acoustic guitar. By this point in their relationship, tensions had reached boiling point between John and George and it is perhaps no surprise that George didn’t involve John during recording of this track.

Even after The Beatles disbanded, Harrison would frequently perform this tune live afterward; such performances included at their Concert for Bangladesh in 1971 and on Saturday Night Live with Paul Simon the same year. Additionally, Unleash the Love was included on his first solo album released through Warner Bros.

Love Me Do

This song’s chord progressions aren’t particularly difficult, yet its verse can be tricky due to changing chords. Once you master playing through this section, however, the chorus should become straightforward.

One of the more intriguing details in the harmonies on this track is John singing on the bottom voice (though Paul can be heard singing the bottom part himself in an interview clip with Paul about their Quarrymen-period acetate of “That’ll Be the Day”). This lends unique coloration and creates a seamless blend between their voices, providing a special coloration.

For this task, an electric guitar with a warm, resonant tone would work well. For maximum electric sound potential, consider installing humbucking pickups. Furthermore, an amplifier capable of handling its volume should also be considered essential.

A Hard Day’s Night

The Beatles released A Hard Day’s Night as both a single and album of the same name in 1964; it became the first song ever to make both British and American charts simultaneously.

This film shows The Beatles performing on a street in London while fans run after them en masse – among which was Wilfrid Brambell who played Paul McCartney on Steptoe and Son.

Lennon/McCartney songs often follow this structure, featuring an upbeat introduction, followed by a bridge and lengthened verses. A Hard Day’s Night stood out among movies featuring famous musicians as it actually had cinematic merit – both audiences and critics enjoyed its success, showing that The Fab Four weren’t one-hit wonders.

Eight Days a Week

The Beatles first released the song Eight Days a Week as their seventh number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart within a year of its initial appearance on their December 1964 album Beatles for Sale in the U.S. It then made its way out as a single with I Don’t Want to Spoil the Party as its B-side in February 1965.

McCartney and Lennon experimented with different ways of creating an intro that faded in over four takes before including one, two and four on Anthology 1.

The Beatles weren’t fond of this song and rarely performed it live, although they did mime it during a March 1965 television appearance. Since then, Mary Wells, Procol Harum, and The Runaways have covered it.
