You can learn how to play You Can’t Hurry Love by The Supremes!

The best thing You Can’t Hurry Love teaches you is how to maintain a repetitive rhythm as the chords change.

By playing the same rhythm for every chord, you create a meditative part which is really easy for the listener to absorb. Essential for songs that are going to be played on the radio for decades to come.

As you practice the song, ensure that all transitions between the bridges and choruses are played with authority.

When you can play the song in an improvised way, meaning, you change the chord shapes as you go along, still maintaining the set rhythm, you are on the right track.

The easiest and best way to achieve this is to play along with the TAB loops in the course, methodically working your way through the fret board for every section of the song.


The chord progression is played in the key of Bb.

You Can’t Hurry Love – Lyrics

I need love, love, to ease my mind.
I need to find, find, someone to call mine, but mama said.
You can’t hurry love, no you just have to wait,
she said love don’t come easy, it’s a game of give and take.
