Lesson notes

I Need You is probably the second song George Harrison wrote, or at least recorded with The Beatles (after Don't Bother Me). I shows a little more sophistication as far as the chord progression, and includes a catchy set of accented chords off beats, which he played using a volume pedal to create a fade in effect.

This lesson goes over some standard strumming patterns, shows how to incorporate George's accents into the rhythm guitar part, a little theory on chords in the key of A major, and even the use of secondary dominant chords.
