Come Together chords



You can learn how to play Come Together by The Beatles!

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.

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? Not sure if Lennon even knew, but does it really matter?

Come Together chord progression

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, they come together in this way!
