Here Comes The Sun was written by George Harrison in 1969 for The Beatles and the song appears on their iconic album Abbey Road. In this lesson we’re going to be learning my fingerstyle arrangement of this great song in full.

Here Comes The Sun is such a beautiful song and it’s also incredibly enjoyable to play on the guitar. If you’re playing the song as it was originally recorded it isn’t too tricky but having said that, it’s no walk in the park. With this lesson being a fingerstyle arrangement it inevitably brings challenges and complicates the song somewhat. However, these challenges are well worth the extra work and once you do master them you’ll likely be very pleased for putting in the extra effort.

Alright, let’s pick up our guitars and learn how to play Here Comes The Sun!
