Song Tips

  • Degree of Difficulty: Fairly Easy - you will need to know some barre chords. (C#m and G#7). These barre chords are some of the easiest to play.
  • Song Key: E Major - 4 sharps F#, C#, G#, D#
  • A bar with the fermata symbol Fermata Symbol OR Pause Symbol in this song, means you strum the chord once, and stop for the duration of the bar, then start playing again in the next bar. This happens often in this song.
  • The guitar chords page will be useful if you want to play any of these chords in a variety of positions. Note that George stums the C#m and E chords at the end of the song in higher positions up the neck. You may want to give this a try.
You will notice John Lennon strums using triplet timing for each beat.

Please Explain: | 1 2 3 4 |... 4 beats per bar

Firstly we divide each bar into quaver beats (8 beats per bar) so the bar count is | 1& 2& 3& 4& | so that each beat has 2 counts... 1&

A triplet means three evenly spaced notes played in the same time as two notes of the same kind.

Triplet timing in this case simply means we play 3 beat counts in the place of 2 beat counts, but still maintaining the duration of 2 beat counts, therefore the timing count is | 1&& 2&& 3&& 4&& |, where 1&& replaces 1&, 2&& replaces 2&, etc.

Let's recap: | 1 2 3 4 | = | 1& 2& 3& 4& | = |1&& 2&& 3&& 4&&|(John's strumming pattern)

Listen and watch John Lennon closely. As you become familiar with the chords, this will become easier.

If you are a beginner, always start slowly. Become familiar with the tune and set a metronome or click track to a much slower tempo than the song, and practice your strumming. Once it becomes easier, speed up the metronome a little. Keep doing this till you reach the required tempo of the song... 156 bpm.
