My Playlist for The Beatles!

In this A Day In The Life guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play all of the chords to this incredible acoustic classic by The Beatles.

Then instrumentation for “A Day In The Life” is pretty stunning and was completely ground breaking for it’s time, or ever for today if you think about it. However, it also works amazingly well on just one acoustic guitar.

The tuning is standard tuning.

I will take you through each section of the song in the order that they appear. There are just a couple barre chords to worry about along the way. If you can confidently play simple barre chords, you won’t have anything to stress about. If you have trouble with them, learning this incredible song is a great place to practice them.

For those crazy orchestral breaks, I have come up with a relatively simple way to recreate them on the acoustic guitar. You can choose to play at that part or not, it is up to you. I just wanted to give people something to play there if they wanted to perform a complete song.

Have fun learning this great track from the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album!
