This is one of my all time favorites by the Beatles. Let It Be was first released in 1970 and was a great hit for them, as it was getting toward the end of the groups life. This song is relatively simple but you can do a lot with the melody and chord arrangements..
This arrangement is in the key of C, which is true to the original arrangement by the Beatles.
My arrangement is true to the original key that the song was played in by the Beatles.
The Beatles were the biggest musical phenomenon of the 20th century, being largely responsible for inventing pop music as we know it. No other musical act has been as critically praised or as commercially successful, and only Elvis Presley's emergence in the mid-50s can compete with the Beatles' in terms of width or depth of cultural influence.

I will have three versions of Let It Be Guitar TAB available.
Let It Be Chords Tab - The Beatles: The guitar chords for the Beatles song, Let It Be are splashed all over the Internet. There are very few versions that I have found that are correct or very true to the song. Also they are very cryptic and you can hardly follow along with them. The chords that I have transcribed for you here are 'right-on' with the Beatles original score. You may find a bit of a departure in the actual arrangement, but that is artist's license taking charge.
This arrangement for playing the chords is intended primarilary for fingerstyle or classical guitar. You coule play it equally well as a flatpicking rhythm if you would like with some minor variations. The main idea here is that the chords are correct and the timing is right, so you can easily play along some lead arrangements with the Guitar Pro File.

Let It Be PartA Tab - The Beatles: Again, I have transcribed this version of Let It Be for either fingerstyle guitar, classical guitar or flatpick steel string guitar. This is a very nice and simplistic arrangement of this song and it will help lead you into the much more difficult Advanced arrangement that introduces full fingerstyle.
With this arrangement it is essential that you get plenty of hammer-ons and pull-offs, which give this arrangement a very unique sound. Master these so you play them smoothly and are able to control the volume of the ornamental's sound.
Also you may wish you use Vibrato with your left hand on some of the quarter, dotted quater and half notes. Vibrato is note as easy to perform on the guitar as it is on the violin. With the guitar the frets form somewhat of a barrier to releasing the total movement of the finger that you are using the vibrato on, so it has to be a bit more exagerated to detect it at all.
Let It Be PartB Tab - The Beatles: This is the full-blown fingerstyle or classical version of this song. This is just how I have played it for years and it makes for agreat arrangement of this song. I think you will especially like the accending and decending bass notes intermixed throughout the melody, which gives the arrangement very nice character.
This arrangement can be played either as a solo, without accompanyment or with a guitar playing the rhythm chords. Good Luck on this arrangement and make sure you memorize it and put it in your playlist!

Make sure to memorize your songs. What is the easiest way to do this? Unless you have perfect pitch, you will have to learn one section or measure at a time. Once you can play flawlessly move on to the next measure and add it to what you have memorized. Continue this and make sure you can play the first half of the song, including the second ending.
Once you have the first half memorized, move on to the second half, doing the same thing with the second half of the song.
