A Hard Day's Night

Animated A Hard Day's Night tab by The Beatles on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This is the main guitar for A Hard Day's Night by the Beatles. If you know your basic chords then this song is straightforward enough. Here's the breakdown:

Intro / Verses - The song starts with a G sus4 chord (although another guitar is played over the top using an F add9). Then go straight into the chords used for the verses:

G major - C add9 - G major - F major - G major

Repeat that once more and then play the tail of the verse, which is this little progression:

C major - D major - G major - C7 - G major

Repeat the whole thing again for each following verse.


Chorus - Cycle through this chord progression:

B minor - E minor - B minor - G major - E minor - C7 - D major

Just repeat each progression as you play through the song. It's a great tune, with nice and simple chord changes. Work on getting the timing right as you switch between chords. Go as slow as you need and get it right before working on building speed!
