Let It Be

Below you will find the unplugged chords that I use to play the 1970 Beatles' number one piano hit Let It Be. Our unique "Unplugged" arrangements are created for one acoustic guitar and one voice. I play the song slowly in 4/4 time. Notice that the opening verse and chorus progressions are clever displacements of the famous "I-VIm-IV-V" Doo-Wop changes. In the opening "C-G-Am-[G]-F verse progression, the second "G" chord is used as a passing chord played quickly just before the change to the "F" chord. For the intro, just play the first four bars of the verse progression. The The chord fingerings I use (in a Standard tuning) are as follows: C = x32010; G = 320003; Am = x02210; F = 133211; and C/B = x22010. The chords shown in brackets are passing chords.
