Here's how to play Come Together by The Beatles! See a simple acoustic tutorial above, plus a rocked up electric guitar tutorial further down this page! Both are beginner friendly, but very late stage beginner (rather than new starters).

Don't let the B minor chord put you off, we use a non-barre chord version in this tutorial.

See below the electric guitar video where I show how to play a heavier version of this song in the style of Gary Clarke Jr. using drop D tuning. This is where we tune the thickest E string down a whole tone to a D note, hence the term Drop D

Drop D allows us to sound heavier due to the lower pitch of the thickest string, which is also slacker than when in standard tuning. It also allows us to play power chords all along the neck with 1 finger - making it a very easy beginner friendly tuning!

The Beatles version is also in the key of D, so you can jam along to the original Beatles recording by playing what I show here - HAVE FUN!
I loved the tone I was getting from the Gibson SG used in this video, which you can see more details of here.
