Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about Peter Jackson’s documentary “The Beatles: Get Back” that was released on Disney+ in late 2021. The documentary takes a look at the life of The Beatles towards the end of their incredible run as a group. In this lesson, Ayla Tesler-Mabe breaks down John Lennon’s part from the title track “Get Back”.
Initially, this song was a social commentary, but it eventually turned into the song we all now know and love. The interesting thing about “Get Back” is that John Lennon actually played the lead guitar part instead of George Harrison giving it a totally different feel from other songs by The Beatles.
