Lesson notes

In 1965, The Beatles were working on Rubber Soul and John was having a bit of a writer’s block. After a few hours, he started feeling like a Nowhere Man in a Nowhere Land, and the block was vanquished.

The song is a simple strumming one in the Key of E, which does mean quite a few barre chords.

The lesson looks at incorporating the short solo into the strumming, as well as transposing it to the Key of D, where there are less barre chords, and none from the ‘A’ family like we need for B in the Key of E.
