If I Fell

Below is the lesson for ‘If I Fell’ by The Beatles.

Helpful Tips

This arrangement of ‘If I Fell’ was written for the fingerstyle player in mind. This tune is a great example of using movement to build the song, while the rhythm remains a constant (eighth notes). What I mean by this, is that the song builds and resolves throughout the sections. While this arrangement covers the entire song, I omitted a repeated section. To play the song true to the record, double bars 19-33 (Second Verse & Refrain).

One quick tip: To simplify the ‘A add9’ chord used in the Verses, omit the 4th sting note. This makes it quicker and easier to catch the chord in time.
