As one of The Beatles most well-known songs, this Come Together guitar lesson has been one of the most requested songs here at GL365.

In this video lesson I will show you how to play all of this classic song written by John Lennon (credited to Lennon/McCartney) note-for-note.

“Come Together” opens with a very cool and laid back guitar riff that is instantly recognizable to all classic rock fans. It uses a sort of a Hendrix inspired chord lick that is repeated. It is quite simple to play and shouldn’t be much of a challenge to the upper-beginner level player and above.

We then launch into the verse, which requires a pretty large stretch for the fret-hand, but other than that the rhythm is very simple to understand and play.

The chorus riff is also very simple and short, so in essence, the rhythm guitar parts of “Come Together” will be very accessible for just about all guitar players.

I will then begin our look at the two guitar solos as played by the great George Harrison. Harrison was a master at creating an understated solo that makes a huge musical statement. The first solo in “Come Together” is a harmonized solo that is relatively short. I will first demonstrate the high harmony part followed by the low harmony part.

After all of that I will close out this video lesson demonstrating how to play George Harrison’s extended outro solo phrase-by-phrase. This solo is a great workout for the upper-beginner level guitarist to get their bends in shape. There are standard bands and pre-bends to contend with and they also encompass a lot of different registers and string tensions around the fretboard. This is a great exercise in feeling what a whole-step bend feels like way up on the 20th fret of the high E string, or way down at the 12th of the G string. It requires you to use your ear to make sure the bends are in tune since they will all feel quite different to your hands.

I hope you guys enjoy learning this legendary song from the undisputed kings, The Beatles. 🙂



  1. To say that Harrison's solo influenced ALL of Gilmour's subsequent solos from 1973 forward is the understatement of the (last) century.
