Two Of Us by The Beatles | acoustic
An acoustic guitar lesson on how to play “Two Of Us" by The Beatles from the 1970 album Let It Be.
This has always been one of my favorite acoustic songs by The Beatles. It's Paul's song and he said that he wrote it about him and Linda and how they liked to try to "get lost" driving in the country.
To me it's always felt like the song was about him and John, especially the middle eight, "You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead."
At this point in 1970 it was pretty clear that The Beatles were not going to last much longer and this tune kind of has that feeling about it...
Anyways, for what sounds like a very simple song, it actually has a lot of strange timing things going on, especially in the chorus but the verse is a bit odd as well. I go over all of that in the video.
Also, George played bass for this track on his telecaster. It's a really cool and interesting part. When I was recording the demo nothing sounded that great until I put that part on. It really brings the song alive.
George was a very understated and excellent guitar player. He always came up with the best parts!
I had a great time working on this tune so I hope you get something from the videos and have fun playing this classic Beatles tune. Cheers
