Keeping it Simple, Eight Days A Week

Awhile back, I posted a sort of jazzy guitar version of the Beatles classic “Eight Days a Week.” It had lots of bar chords and typical chord voicings to achieve the melody.

Today, I’m going to show a very simple version of the song. It requires no barred chords, or fancy voicings. In fact, in most cases you will only be playing 2 or 3 strings at a time.

In this video, I’ll show you not only the exact position of my fingers on the fretboard, but I will highlight the actual note of the melody that you will emphasize to achieve a balance in playing the song with the underlying harmonies that provides the chords to the song.

As always, you can slow this video down to half speed to learn each part. To do this, simply click on the “Settings” gear in the YouTube window and choose the speed you would like.
