Here Comes the Sun appeared on the Beatles’ 1969 album Abbey Road. It was written by George Harrison in early 1969 at the country house of his friend Eric Clapton. It is also the Beatles most streamed song on Spotify! The song was recorded at the EMI studios in London in 1969.
I have arranged this version so that you can play both the high mandolin part and George Harrison’s acoustic guitar chords at the same time. It only uses basic open chord shapes like D major, G major and A major. The hardest part of the song is the unusual time signature change in the middle 8 section. I suggest that you listen to the song a LOT of times in order to get your head round that bit… Other than that it’s fairly simple. The tab can be played either with a pick or finger picking.
