“When I’m Sixty Four” – The Beatles

Below is the lesson for “When I’m Sixty Four” by The Beatles.

Helpful Tips

One of The Beatles most playful melodies; this fingerstyle arrangement is perfect for the seasoned beginner. This song’s form is quite simple, consisting of two melodies: A and B.

The original recording repeats these sections a couple of times, but for our arrangement we’ve kept it short and sweet:

Melody A
Melody B
Melody A

I’d recommend using your thumb to fingerpick/strum; this will allow you to focus on building dexterity in your left hand, which is needed as you’ll be playing throughout the entire span of the neck.
