Beatles quickest Chord Progression
« on: June 18, 2008, 03:34:03 PM »

I assume I'm using the right term with chord progression, but for anyone who plays guitar out there, what is or do you consider to be the quickest chord progressive song?

For me I'd say the three fastest I've found are "I Will", "Till There Was You" and "Yesterday" but thats just with the range of songs I've tried! anyone know quicker ones?

I love trying to play the fast ones as some like yesterday have a chord change per word which is a nice challenge!

Being For The benefit of Mr. Kite, She's Leaving Home, Here There Everywhere, Michelle are all quick/many moving chord changers that spring immediately to mind.  :)

I'm Looking Through You is a fast one, there's a chord change for almost every word I think.

there a hell of a lot of beatles songs that have a lot of bass runs, where its the same chord but the root note/bass note changes thansk to Macca usually ;)

anyways Only a northern song has alot of chord changes.

Not even given that a crack. Sounds such a loose vague tune. Very apathetic but many chords genius going on. ;)

Real interesting thread guys. I'm mainly bass. What's 'I've Just Seen A Face Before' like? I imagine plenty of syncopation going on there aswell for guitar. It's been said quite a bit lately but what an intro.

its actually just the same G chord for  ive just seen a face i cant forget, then its switches to Em for the same length on the next line and so on, but it all depends how you play as there are folk on youtube who play the chords but add in the bass lines on top and then it becomes a whole load of chords with root add ons.

You wanna give Blackbird a go on guitar. Playing that whilst singing it too is no easy feat! Lots of technical changes going on all over the place, all the time.

ah a friend taught me the plucking technique to it, have played it for ages, so has become really easy after awhile! not bad for singing to, but gets boring to play

I use the same chords. It's like an old 50's doo-wop progression, in my mind!

Another song whose chords seemed faster than I expected they would be is "It's Only Love" (the verses, and weird chords too...?). It's been a while since I played that one ... anyone else try it?
