    Great song, awesome job !! I am new at guitar playing, but I never realized that this song had so many chords. LOL, I will try and try but I'm not sure if I will ever remember and be able to play that many chords in a song just over 2 minutes long. Thanks for all the info, you did a great job on this lesson !!

    What a fine tutorial you have here. Loved the 9ths–broadened my horizons. Also loved the Bb. Thanks a million.

    I agree there is some good stuff in here, but there is some slightly strange stuff as well (as there is on other tutorials for this song on YouTube). I've been playing this myself since the 1960s, and (a) the rhythm at the start is a quick up-down-up on the top strings, not a kind of down-up-down on a low string, (b) I've never used C9 (or C sharp 9!), only C7, which fits and sounds perfectly fine – I know different musicians can do different things, but if you're learning this for the first time, C7 is a damn sight easier than C9; (c) I've always used more changes to Em between the use of Am, which again "sounds right" to me even if I use it a little more often than the original. It's a slightly less efficient way of playing A major as well, trying to bar with one finger (which will tend to mute the 1st string) rather than the conventional 3-fingertips way. Still, at least this does use B7 (correctly) where some tutors seem to think it should be B major!

    Jackson, great job! I'm a 60s guy and I'm trying to learn all of the Beatles tunes. Thanks for your tutorials and keep it up.

    Nice little tutorial.  Something tells me you put some time in as a working musician, you have an ear for the little details, and that's what separates the good guitarists from the rest.  LBJ was president when I first picked up a guitar, so I can usually pick up a song by ear and have it down before it ends, but I need to repeat the "listen and play" quite a few times to pick up most of the details.   Well done and a big thank you.

    Well, I am a happy dude. I specifically looked for videos for this song to find out  one thing only: what,exactly,  was the chord being  being played that, apparently Paul was proud of…that B Flat. Awesome. Thank you sir.

    Thanks Jackson for the lesson, Great Job. I even bought a Jay Turser Cleopatra!

    Reasonably helpful… but there is no C#9 on the record. There ARE passing notes in the vocals that imply that chord. Also the 1st verse alternates Am Em Am Em. Subsequent verses go to the Am Em Am shown here. In addition, Paul did not own a yacht in 1964. We Beatle fans can be sticklers for detail.

    Muy buena lección muchas gracias. Me podría decir la marca de su Guitarra ? Será Irvine ? porque tengo un bajo violin excelente que tiene el mismo Logo en la pala que su guitarra.
    Muy buen sonido

    That is a hard change….and then to that B Flat is the key to the whole song.in the change…that is song writing. Thanks for your very good work…..!!!
