Come Together’s chords and progressions

As an 8-bar blues in Dm, we use 5 chords for the A and G, making it ambiguous if they are major or minor.

As the chorus starts with a Bm chord, we have a modal interchange. Instead of being Dm, the Bm relates to D major as the relative minor.

We still use A and G during the chorus – so incredibly simple and genius. It makes the two sections feel as if they belong together. Some may even say, the chords come together in this way!

When The Beatles released Come Together they were the biggest band in the world!

Another U.S. #1 from Liverpool’s pride we find in Come Together. The single was the opening track on their legendary 1969 album Abbey Road.

Not just a success across the pond, Come Together charted in the top 10 the world over.

By 1969, The Beatles was easily the biggest band in the world, and pretty much everything they released was a success, and music historians will add, also very good.

Their lasting legacy is proof that this was no fluke, even though they pushed the envelope in more than one way. For example, what are the lyrics to Come Together all about? There’s definitely some kind of sexual innuendo in there, but the rest, who knows…

Intermediate Acoustic Songs

Most intermediate acoustic tunes can’t be played using just basic open-position chords. We have to move up the fretboard and play CAGED barre chords as well.

We incorporate bass lines, add licks, extend chords, and play vocal melodies. Most importantly, we’ll invent second guitar parts and play these songs together.
