“Julia” was written by John Lennon (yet attributed to Lennon/McCartney) in 1968 while the group were studying meditation in Northern India.
John Lennon was taught how to play in the fingerpicking style known as “Travis Picking” by another famous guest at their India retreat, the singer Donovan.
Lennon took this simple fingerpicking pattern and turned it into gold with this absolutely beautiful and haunting acoustic ballad written for his deceased mother.
“Julia” contains lots of full and rich chord voicings and also employs a capo to great effect. This is one of my favorite Beatles tunes so I hope you enjoy it as well. Cheers! Carl..
