Before we begin our regularly scheduled lesson, I do have to give you all a warning: reading this Easy Songs For Beginners Lesson will expose you to a small dose of music theory that could be harmful in that you might inadvertently learn something. Also there is a chance, a very good one actually, that you might have to use your pinky to play a riff! And you might even get a mini-rant from me on the importance of being able to get beyond relying strictly on tablature. Am I missing anything? That way we can move straight on to the fun stuff! On the original recording, Nowhere Man is in the key of E.
This song really reflects the change The Beatles were going through in the making of rubber soul. Truely marking the start of the mid-period late the band drifted away from the "he loves her, she loves him" pop songs, into a new story telling style and experimentation, ultimately evolving into the psychedelic style which debued on Revolver. Vocals open the song with John's rhythm guitar coming in on the up-strum, giving the song a sudden and unexpected feeling reflecting the Rubber soul album quite nicely. For the most part John's rhythm is fairly consistant apart from some rhyhtmic variations on the strumming as he goes through the song, I have implemented this into my performance. While the song is in the key of E, John's rhythm guitar is capoed at the 2nd fret and is therefore played as if the song is in D. The capo is a significant quality of the Rubber Soul acoustic sound and is featured on several other songs on the album including "Norwegian Wood" and "Girl". The lead parts are played in unison with George and John on their identical sonic blue stratocasters. The backing parts panned left are based around an Esus4 shape for the most part, and an E with a doubled 5th B on the opening lick, i suppose you could call it an E no 3rd. In the solo parts which are panned right I think George and John use slightly different shapes from each other as the sound to me seems uneven, as if the notes aren't always played on the same string. The biggest clue of this for me is in the end slide of the solo in which George slides from a B note all the way down to E on the low E string, however if you listen to the record the two parts together sound like they're playing B-A-F -E, this is the result of John playing a pull-off perhaps not intentionally on the B note on the A string and finishing on an E chord, resulting in the notes B-A- John's pull off accents these notes F -E the end of George's slide.
