Package includes And I Love Her, Birthday, Hey Jude, I've Just Seen A Face and I'll Follow The Sun.
Lesson 1: And I Love Her - Guitar Lesson
And I Love Her is another one or our most requested Beatles songs. This multi-part TARGET Lesson teaches both the rhythm guitar part and a short look at GeorgeРІР‚в„ўs lead.
Lesson 2: Birthday - Guitar Lesson
*Birthday*is a classic example of taking a simple riff, dropping it into a 12-bar blues format, adding some catchy vocals over a short chord progression, throwing in a little drum break and lead guitar fill, and creating great rock and roll in a matter of just a couple of days. Paul came up with the main riff and had most of the song done by the time the rest of the band was back in the studio. This lesson includes a Campfire Version, the way I like to have beginners learn the basics of the song, as well as a One-Man Band Version where the rhythm guitar and bass parts are combined into something a bit more challenging. The lead section includes some techniques more commonly done on an electric guitar, bends, slides, and quick hammer-on pull-off combinations.
Lesson 3: Hey Jude - Guitar Lesson
This TARGET Short lesson on Hey Jude takes Paul McCartney's piano tune and looks at it as a simple strumming song, more in the Campfire style. It also includes a sing-along and some tips on turning it into an instrumental by picking out the melody, although many of the specific details are left up to the student.
Here we are in May of 2021 and I was asked to add tab and a clip on the solo intro I played 11 years ago.
Lesson 4: I've Just Seen A Face - Guitar Lesson
I've Just Seen A Face is a bluegrass flavored flatpicking song of Paul McCartney's from the Beatles' album Help. The accompaniment includes a fast country pattern of hitting bass notes, some of which are hammered on, and also uses passing notes to connect the chords. The lesson also goes over two acoustic guitar parts played as an intro, and George's short lead break.
Lesson 5: I’ll Follow The Sun - Guitar Lesson
I'll Follow The Sun is a very early Paul McCartney song with a very simple chord progression and short lead. This 'Campfire' song is very playable by beginning guitar players as soon as you can play an F chord, although the barred version is preferable. We also look at incorporating the 8-note lead into the strumming.
