In this tutorial we'll learn a super easy version of "Let It Be" as made famous by The Beatles. We're going to learn the chords to the two progressions that repeat throughout this song, and for starters using the simplest right hand possible. This will allow us to focus on our left hand and making good chord changes. We'll guide you towards more challenging left hand styles as you are ready for the challenge!

This song was composed to evoke the feeling of an uplifting pop-hymn. Dynamically it starts small and solo, repeats and builds in layers with the addition of the rhythm section, an iconic Hammond organ part, and the band singing backing vocals. We come full circle, returning to a stripped down final verse, followed by the anthemic, sing along chorus taking it home.

We'll let the backing tracks create the dynamic mood of this song. All we want to play is the correct chords and a nice steady rhythm while the song unfolds around us!

We're in the key of C major, playing in 4/4 time and 70 BPM.
