This is the full guitar lesson for Dear Prudence by The Beatles.
Dear Prudence is the perfect fingerpicking song for someone that wants to break out from playing beginner tunes. What makes this song harder than all the ones we’ve covered so far is the alternating bass. In Dear Prudence your thumb bounces between the bottom three strings throughout the entire piece, and if you’ve not done that before you will likely often find yourself playing the wrong bass note. If you are new to this technique then I strongly recommend starting with just the bass line and getting that secure first. Then, once you’re OK with that, bring in the top three strings.
Alright, let’s pick up our guitars and learn how to play Dear Prudence!
