Lesson notes

I Saw Her Standing There is an early rocker from Paul McCartney and John Lennon, kicking off The Beatles’ first album, Please Please Me. It uses some standard blues chords but usually in 8-measure phrases rather than 12-bar form. Like most of their songs, it also includes some jazzy twists and turns.

The lesson covers a basic way of strumming through the rhythm parts, a more complicated version based on Paul’s bass line, and some tips on George’s lead parts, which were more improvised than composed.
