[Bar 17] Out­lin­ing chord pro­gres­sions with fast, arpeg­giated se­quences like this one is a com­mon fea­ture in the reper­toire of The Bea­tles – you hear this early on in tracks like Help, for ex­am­ple. No­tice how although we are still in 4/4 time this se­quence fea­tures chords that are grouped as threes - a very com2mAoc­nop­uast­ticern when us­ing ideas like th­ese. [Bar 19] Ge­orge’s play­ing was full of won­der­ful, rich chord voic­ings and Here Comes The Sun is full of them. Try mov­ing chord shapes up and down the neck and see what you can come up with... [Bar 21] …and catchy arpeg­giated chord se­quences like th­ese can go both down and up the neck (like here!)
