“Introducing, the Beatles!” They’ve had more hits than any other band. But what are the SECRETS behind their success? Well, Beatles expert Scott Freiman knows the answers and he shares some of those secrets with you in this course on Chords and Progressions!
Chords ARE magic. They are the foundation of every song. They provide a structure and framework that is fundamental to a song’s form. They also serve as a harmonic canvas for the creation of great melodies and lyrics, especially when used in progressions by master songwriters like the Beatles.
Chords also infuse a song with its emotional impact: Joy, sorrow, excitement, anger and, of course, feelings of love. The Beatles songwriting duo of John Lennon and Paul McCartney understood the power of chords and progressions and employed them to achieve great songwriting success. In fact, the chords that they and George Harrison employed helped sell almost a BILLION ALBUMS worldwide. That’s a lot of albums!
In this Deconstructing the Beatles - Chords and Progressions course, acclaimed Beatles expert Scott Freiman explores the Beatles’ chordal songwriting SECRETS and the music theory behind those progressions. He “deconstructs” more than fifty of their of their hit songs including Hey Jude, Day Tripper, In My Life, In My Life, She Loves You and more.
Watch these videos. Master the theory behind the Beatles Chords and Progressions. And then apply these songwriting secrets to your songs and you, too, can share some of the John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr magic.
So sit back “Because” “It Won’t Be Long” that you’ll have a “Ticket To Ride” and composing hit songs “Eight Days A Week”! Enjoy!!

I love this course. I re-subscribed just to check it out, and am glad I did. What I really liked is that it stays fairly simple while going to into harmonic depth. The principles are basic, but the examples of songs from the beatles really drive it home. Great job!

Excellent course for those wanting to escape the prescriptive scale and suited chord approach to broaden and justify their creativity with alternative methods to songwriting. Highly recommend this course as a must watch for beginner, intermediate and advanced player. Easy to follow, although I had to watch some of the video lessons a few times. Thank you :-)

Excellent course with some really great insights on the genius of the Beatles and their use of different types of chord progressions. Scott does a tremendous job of presenting in a very clear and concise style. Definitely worth the time. I'm pretty sure everyone will get something out of this that they didn't know about the Beatles music. After watching in one sitting I will be take notes on my second go round!! Thanks Scott!! Nice work!!
