Default The Beatles - All My Loving - Fingerstyle Guitar Cover

Hi everyone,

Here's my fingerstyle guitar arrangement of All My Loving by The Beatles. I finally found a way to play the original bassline and melody at the same time. I hope you enjoy listening! :-)

All the best & have a nice weekend,
Basil

Man, you have come up with a tough arrangement! Sounds good!

Thanks so much, Glenn! It's Paul McCartney's fault that it became tough ;-) The melody goes up most of the verse section while the bass line goes down, creating impossible stretches but transposing everything to C finally made the arrangement possible (I tried a few different keys before ...).

Cool stuff. Very unique original concept and arrangement with that walking base line. At my age donít think my fingers could stretch like that anymore

Thanks a lot, glad you like my arrangement! I had to practice a few of those stretches - they are definitely at my "stretch limit" :-)

Hi Basil. I just tried playing this and it made my head spin! Great job on a very difficult arrangement. Sounds good!

Hi Barry, thanks so much! I'm thinking about doing a tutorial video for the arrangement (for copyright reasons, I unfortunately cannot show the tabs), would you be interested?

Thanks a lot! Yes, they are really great :-) For some reason, I especially like those early short & "punchy" ones like this one (or like Help!, Eight Days A Week, A Hard Day's Night, ...)
