Lesson notes

As a follow-up to their first single, Love Me Do, The Beatles went into the studio to record Please Please Me, although George Martin still did not have faith in their songwriting abilities.

They had reworked it, come up with some great hooks, vocals, and energy, and the rest is history. Please Please Me became their first number one hit within weeks of its release in early 1963, at least in the UK.

This lesson strums through the chord progression in a couple different ways and also looks at incorporating the lead into the strumming.
