The Beatles – If I Fell – acoustic rhythm guitar lesson

Learn how to play the acoustic rhythm guitar part from the Beatles classic “If I Fell” with video demonstration by Rick McCargar of http://www.guitarlicksandtabs.com

While you may learn the song faster with tab, you learn to play guitar faster if you have to spend a little more time working on getting the right chords by watching and listening, and ultimately, isn’t that the goal?

Last week’s lesson to practice learning by ear was finger-picking Jim Croce’s “These Dreams”, and this week it’s a Beatles classic, “If I Fell”.

On the original, there are two acoustics and one electric, I selected the acoustic that had the extra chords in the intro.

Let me know if you have any questions. Enjoy!

The Beatles – One After 909 – solo – guitar lesson includes tablature

The BeatlesOne After 909 sologuitar lesson (no lecture – just show you how to play it) and provide the guitar tablature for instructional purposes.

 
Note: As of July 23rd, 2014, tab is no longer free.

I’m helping you learn these licks/solos/songs, and now I am asking you to please help me.

There are three options (one option – number 3, costs you no money out-of-pocket) to get a link to the google-drive folder containing all the tab I’ve pulled from the site including this one; Hotel California, La Grange, Tush, My Head’s In Mississippi, Free Bird, Layla unplugged, Jessica, Blue Sky, One Way Out, Landslide, Driving South, Mississippi Queen, Ramblin’, Heard It In A Love Song, Mary Had A Little Lamb (SRV version), Stairway to Heaven, and more…plus I will continue to add to this folder as I do new lessons, at no additional cost to you.

PICK ONE OF THESE THREE OPTIONS TO HELP ME, AND I’LL GIVE THE LINK TO THE TAB TO YOU:

1 ) Donate $2 or more using the PayPal Donate button (PayPal fees are too high to make $1 worth it for me)

2 ) Purchase my song from iTunes for $0.99. – I would prefer this method. Maxstrumental 6C – Maxstrumental 6C – Single

3 ) No cash method: Watch a full-ad ‘in-stream ad’ on my youtube channel, or click on and visit a sponsor ad from the video….this is the honor system, please don’t cheat me, I don’t cheat you. If you watch only a few seconds of an ad, or click on the ad and leave right away, it won’t count for me..so it won’t help me. Please take just the time necessary to be honest here.

When you’ve done one or more of those three things, send an email to me at guitarlicksandtabs@gmail.com telling me which method you chose and which email address you want me to send the link to. I will usually respond within hours, but it could be a day if I’m out.

That is a great deal for you, the tab matching my video lesson for almost nothing but a small amount of money and/or your time, and if you support me by downloading my song, it helps me get visibility on iTunes so I show up in their search, and can maybe sell a few more songs. We all win.

Thank you for your support!
Rick

 

The “19’s” shown in the 13th and 14th measures, are actually performed by holding the “17b19″ bend shown in the 13th measure, then releasing it as shown:
