The Beatles In Three Chords: Love Me Do

Posted on: June 15th, 2011 by dville

The Beatles In Three Chords is a new feature designed to enhance your Beatles repertoire with fun, three-chord songs.  We start at the beginning of The Beatles recording career with their first single, Love Me Do, which was released on October 5, 1962.

The original recording is in the key of G with the following chord progression:
A Part: I7 (G7)-IV (C) 3X then hold on the IV then back to the I7
Turnaround: I7-IV-I7
Bridge: V (D)-IV (C)-I (G)
I’ve written out John Lennon’s harmonica part using the Solfege Syllables (the do-re-mi).

G Major Scale with flatted 7th:
G (do) A (re) B (mi) C (fa) D (sol) E (la) F (tay)
tay la sol do-do-do-do
tay-tay-tay la sol do-do-do do
tay la sol do-do-do fa mi do-do do-do do do-do-fa-mi-do

    Good stuff. I look forward to more of these as I've been meaning to add some simple and well known Beatles tracks to my song list! Cheers.

    Love! Perhaps the first song here that I totally got first try.
