"Eleanor Rigby" is a fantastic song for the beginner guitarist to learn. It contains just two basic open position chords throughout.
Besides showing you how to play those chords, I will also demonstrate the rhythm techniques required. For part of "Eleanor Rigby", we will be using a basic strumming pattern.
However, during the verse sections we will be employing a quick right hand muting technique to better emulate the rhythm that the strings are playing on the original recording.
I will explain this technique in detail which will make this an excellent rhythm exercise for the beginner level guitarist.
If you aren't a beginner though, "Eleanor Rigby" is a classic that you can easily have under your fingers in just a few minutes. Enjoy!
