Get Back by Beatles in A


Get Back is on the the Let it be albums and Anthology 3.




Get Back uplay2.  Click on the renditions with subtitle prompts in the left collumn to play along with the Beatles.

The Beatles play in A though as the song ends on D and uses G in the turnaround, so the key is ambiguous between A and D.

In Get Back by Beatles in A for C tuning the chord numbers shown are for a guitar in open C tuning, such as CGCGCE.  This means that the chord number is the number of frets up the neck from the open position which is 0; so a barre at 9 plays an A chord, likewise 2 plays D and 7 plays G.  

On a piano which is tuned to C the white note triads on A and D are minor so remember to make major chords by raising the middle note to a black key. 

Or make it easier by putting a capo on the second fret of your C tuned guitar and count from there using Get Back by Beatles in A for D tuning.  Or use a guitar tuned to open D or a keyboard transposed up 2 semitones.

Or if you have a guitar tuned to open A or a keyboard transposed lower by 3 semitones to A, you can use prompts which treat A as 0 as in Get Back by Beatles in A.  To show 10 we use * and to show 11 we use #.  (Note that on the keyboard the * chord is then played like a Bb shape, so on a keyboard, the A for D tuned instruments method is easier as the chords all stay on white notes.)

Each chord number starts a bar of 4 beats (except in the turnaround when four numbers are shown together without a space in which case each number is a single beat and all are played successively within one bar).  

Note that vocals start slightly ahead of the chords but for simplicity this isn't shown but is easily picked up by listening and singing along.

Please email any suggested improvement to songs@uplay2.org.

Here are the chord prompts for an A tuned instrument in the lyrics.
