Let it Be by The Beatles was originally performed on the piano and Darrin teaches a guitar arrangement that uses finger picking to simulate the way it was played on piano. In this second part of this easy guitar lesson Darrin demonstrates the chorus and bridge. Goodman demonstrates the chords used in the chorus as follows; Am (A minor), G, F and C. Darrin demonstrates how to perform the chorus using an alternating bass line which he says is typically played on the down beat, but in this case it is played on the up beat. The bridge is made up of a melody which is performed using dyads or double stops so it harmonizes with its self. Guitar TAB’s are available for this easy rhythm guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com.

Double Stops is the technique of playing two strings at the same time, usually done using the hybrid picking technique.
