Lesson notes

The Beatles album Rubber Soul was released in late 1965 and showed that they had entered a more sophisticated stage of songwriting. You Won't See Me was one of a couple 'break up' songs that Paul wrote about his relationship with Jane Asher. The song has just two parts, a 16-bar verse and an 8-bar chorus, and follows a regular formula of theirs as far as the arrangement. It starts off with a very cool bass hook that is also used at the end of each verse.

This lesson goes over the chord progression and a basic strumming pattern, almost country in feel, and also goes into George's backbeat accompaniment using 3-string chords up the neck.
