Beatles Guitar Lessons by Edgar Z. Johnson

If you want to learn to play guitar like the greatest rock band of all time, The Beatles, then I congratulate you on your choice. It will be a very rewarding experience for you to learn how to play in the style of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, & George Harrison.

Instead of hiring an expensive local guitar teacher to teach you how to play guitar, I definitely recommend trying online guitar lessons. They are cheaper and in many cases they are actually more effective. The best online guitar lessons have everything you need to learn to play guitar like The Beatles (or anyone else for that matter).

If you are mostly interested in playing acoustic guitar then you should consider learning one of the songs listed below first.

Acoustic Guitar Beatles Songs

"Blackbird" - This may be the ultimate Beatles song to learn on solo acoustic guitar. It will certainly impress people if you can learn to play it just like Paul McCartney did and if you do it will also be a great learning experience for you. That's one of the great things about learning how to play their music, you will learn so much about music. You will become a better musician and a better songwriter (if you are interested in writing songs).

"Yesterday" - Another McCartney classic. Much easier to play than "Blackbird" but it's also more dependent on a nice vocal to go with it, while "Blackbird" sounds great all on it's own.

"Julia" - John Lennon played this song from the legendary 1968 self-titled album that is better known as The White Album. It's a beautiful song that will teach you good fingerpicking technique.

"Here Comes The Sun" - You will need a capo to capture the same sound that George Harrison got out of his guitar in 1969. Another timeless Beatles classic.
