Lesson notes

Things We Said Today is a Paul McCartney song that really exemplifies many of the reasons The Beatles have to be considered one of the greatest bands/songwriters/influences of all time. It uses chord sequences and combinations unheard of at the time, syncopated rhythm guitar strumming along with sparse and simple lead punctuations, well-crafted lyrics, and a memorable melody with clever harmony. This lesson covers the chord progression and strumming patterns, as well as the sixteenth-note bounce that starts it off. There are a few barre chords and there is a segment on George’s part where he plays three string triad shapes up the neck.
