NO CAPO CHORD SHAPES

Welcome to this Hey Jude Guitar Tutorial by The Beatles! This song is an absolute all time classic and just has an amazingly beautiful melody. The song itself is fairly easy with a simple strumming pattern running through the whole song. In the video i’ll show you 2 different ways of playing the song.

  1. No Capo – harder version with more barre chords.
  2. Capo on 3rd fret – easy version with no barre chords.

The second method will be best for new beginners but i’d suggest trying to learn the first method to practice barre chords.
