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

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!
