Lesson notes

This may be the very first heavy metal and/or punk rock song ever written. At a time when distortion was more of an accident than a desired tone, and when stomp boxes were barely in existence, the Beatles managed to craft an unbelievably aggressive sound in this epic hit.

By learning how they used an overdriving amp to create the cacophony of sound, you’ll get a deeper appreciation for the most common effect we guitarists use today.

In addition you’ll get the inside scoop on all the dissonant harmonies and tension building chords throughout the song.

Finally, you’ll learn how to bend and make your guitar wail like George Harrison did during the short but effective lead licks in this song.
