Today is song #2 in the Rubber Soul Series! In case you missed it, every Thursday we are posting a complete song lesson for each song on the album.
Track #2 is Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown) and this song is considered a milestone in the Beatles' development as songwriters. It also features a sitar, played by George Harrison.
The sitar line which is playing the main melody of the song is actually doubled in the acoustic guitar part as well. This recording marked the first appearance of the Indian string instrument on a Western rock recording.
Learn how to play this iconic acoustic guitar part that strums chords and picks out a melody all at the same time in today's featured lesson.
