The Beatles - Yesterday

Here's how to play Yesterday by The Beatles, officially the most covered Beatles song EVER!

We'll cover how to play this in the EASIEST way with NO BARRE CHORDS! We will learn this song in standard tuning (key of G) then down tune a whole step and use the same chords, but the down tuning creates the effect of being in the key of F, like the original recording!

More info in the video. See a full cover and chord diagrams further down this page!
