Dear Prudence was written and sung by John Lennon. It was recorded and released in 1968 on The Beatles White Album. In this lesson, we’ll talk about the 8 different triads used in the song. Several of these chords are played with an added note and many are played with bass notes other than the root – so we’ll cover slash chords. As usual, we’ll first go through each part of the song with chords in root position – then follow that up by using the technique of finding the nearest inversion. In the song-specific techniques section, I’ll give you ideas on how your left and right hands should work together rhythmically as you move from section to section – and I’ll show you the signature descending bassline and how to emulate on the keyboard the cool guitar riff that ends the song.
