Lesson notes

In 1965 The Beatles embarked on their second movie, Help. It was a fun romp with a spy-spoof theme. The album included John Lennon's You're Gonna Lose That Girl, which was largely overlooked by critics, and even the band themselves. It actually shows the growing maturity the boys were experiencing as songwriters with its short sections and unusual modulations.

This lesson goes over the chords, in the keys of E, G and even a little in C, and works on percussive strumming– the techniques to mute the strings on beats 2 and 4. Barre chords are a necessity here, as is almost always the case when playing in the key of E Major.
