Lesson notes

In this lesson, we’ll learn my instrumental arrangement of In My Life, one of John Lennon’s great songs. The arrangement uses an alternate tuning sometimes known as “C-GAD”, CGDGAD, which is related to DADGAD tuning.

The arrangement follows the same structure as the Beatles’ recording, and we’ll work thru the details of each section, with a few side-discussions about the tuning and the arranging process. The arrangement is played in the key of G, but we use a capo on the 2nd fret, to have it sound in A, the same key as the Beatles’ recording.
