The Beatles' cover of "Twist and Shout" is by far the most popular version of the song. The guitar work is pretty simple so you will be playing it in no time. The guitar tuning in standard tuning.
At the beginning of the video, I will demonstrate a way to play the main verse riff of "Twist and Shout" that sort of combines John Lennon and George Harrison's guitar parts. I will still teach each part individually as well.
One of the funnest parts to play of "Twist and Shout" is the solo section. Here, John Lennon and George Harrison play a dual lead guitar part where both of them are playing most guitar diads. When heard together it creates a nice big and flowing sound.
The ending of the song is really cool to, with an ascending chromatic guitar riff that resolves into a D9 chord.
I hope you guys enjoy learning this early rock classic from The Beatles!
