The Beatles “Let It Be” Easy Guitar Version

In the first guitar lesson video below you will learn an easy guitar arrangement of The Beatles classic "Let It Be".

Even though the original song was mostly piano, the chord progression is still quite simple and easy to play on the guitar.

You may want to liven up the rhythm after you get the hang of the tune. Just use your natural sense of rhythm to help you play along with the recording.

This is for all of you that are just starting out and want to learn a nice campfire classic. 😀

Download the PDF below, it has all of the chords laid out for you so you can follow the video more easily.

In the second video I have something for you more experienced guitar players out there. I will teach you note-for-note how to play George Harrison's guitar solo for "Let It Be".

Now there are two different versions of this song, the single version and the album version. This solo lesson will cover the solo in the album version of the song.

It is a really great solo with lots of cool guitar hooks and melodic playing. George Harrison had a true gift for creating solos that are hummable pretty much after only one lesson. This solo is no different.

There are some challenging licks to learn as well. Tasty bends, hammer-ons, pull-offs, pre-bends and slick slides abound. Have fun with this one!

    Thanks for this lesson Carl. I have a request for an electric guitar blues version of Hit the Road Jack. There are acoustic verions galore but not a good electric arrangement. A high view fun song for sure! What do you think?

    • Carl Brown on December 25, 2014 at 4:44 pm

      Is there currently a popular electric version of the song or do you mean for me to create my own. 🙂


  8. Ray on December 25, 2014 at 10:49 pm

    There is a popular acoustic version but not an electric version. I was hoping you would create one. Thanks.
