Lesson notes

The Beatles’ 1965 album, A Hard Day’s Night, included I’m Happy Just To Dance With You, a tune Lennon and McCartney wrote for George Harrison to sing.

It probably seemed like a throw-away to them but there are some serious challenges for the intermediate guitar student who wants to play along with the boys in this one.

It uses a bunch of barre chords and features some very fast, double time, syncopated strumming. This lesson breaks it all down and includes a slowed down play through that should make it somewhat approachable.
