Hi, everyone this is Darrin Goodman with Guitar Control, we’re going to do the Part 2 of the previous lesson “Let it Be” by The Beatles. Today we’re going to go over the chorus and the little bridge that’s before the solo and the ending of the song.

Be sure to check on the image above to follow chords and tabs.

Let’s get started, for the chorus the chords that we will be using are A minor, G, F and C. We’re playing this arrangement with our fingers, just like the previous one. I’m not going to go into all of the details about how we pick this, so be sure if you haven’t seen Part 1, check it out because you’ll learn the Intro and the verse and you’ll learn what we’re going to do here with our right hand.

Starting on A minor, and again, we’re on the 5th string with our thumb and strings 4, 3 and 2, with our first three fingers. We have A minor to G, to F, C. C we do twice; back to G. And then that same thing we did in the verse. That’s F, then you move your middle finger up to the 2nd fret of the 4th string. We hit the 4th and 3rd together. Take your middle finger off, hit the two strings open, to a C. So the whole chorus again.

All right, that leaves the little bridge that is right before the solo and it’s also how the song ends. So we’re going to start off with the F and we’re going to hit strings 4, 3, 2 and 1, simultaneously. Then we’re going to move up to the 2nd fret, so this is just like that part in the verse and in the chorus; to C.

Now we move up and we play the 1st fret of the 5th string and the 4th string open. Then take that finger off and hit both strings open; to a G, F, C. The whole sequence once again. You play it twice. It just goes right into the guitar solo the first time you hear it and then at the end of the song
it does two choruses in a row and then it does that little outro and that’s how the song ends.

I hope you got something out of that today. Make sure to subscribe on our YouTube Channel and we’ll see you in our next video lessons, thanks for watching.
