All My Loving Guitar Lesson – The Beatles

In this All My Loving guitar lesson video, I will show all the guitar chords to this much loved classic by The Beatles. I will also show you how to play George Harrison's guitar solo note-for-note.

"All My Loving" makes for an excellent rhythm guitar work due to the liberal use of bar chords, and the quick triplet strumming pattern that is played throughout the verse.

This strumming pattern can be a bit of a challenge, so I will make sure to break it down within the video lesson so it won't be very difficult for you to get correct feel for it.

Most of the song is dominated by John Lennon's rhythm guitar part that incorporates those triplet strums. He is using basic major, minor and 7th chords, but you may not be very familiar with the chord voicings that he uses to play those chords. Hopefully, you will learn some new chord shapes along with the tricky right hand rhythm.

The chorus has a much more simple staccato feel about it so you probably won't have much trouble with it.

George Harrison's solo is next and it can be a challenge as well. He jumps around the fretboard basing his solo around a lot of the same chord voicings that John Lennon uses in the verse, along with some hybrid picking as well. I will demonstrate the entire solo phrase-by-phrase and let you know how to pick each chord.

I will close out the lesson with a couple of different chord voicings that end the song. These happen in a pretty high register, but aren't very difficult to play. Good Luck!

    Hey Carl, it’s great to find different chord voicings. So that, as a beginner it’s interesting to learn that a open D chord can be barred at the 2nd. fret. While the chord books show this shape at the 14 fret. And can also be done at the 5th. fret.All with the same sound. So that the musician can chose what shape of the chord to use. And creating how the song moves by keeping your fingers to a certain pattern. Making these chord shapes, to get the sound that you want.

    Hi Carl

    I am having trouble with the index finger barring on the chords they end up muted any ideas ?
