Short answer… YES.
They really are. If you’re looking for a great video on hey jude chords on guitar then I recommend the video done by this guy I just linked to. I follow a lot of his tutorials and he does have some very nice arrangements which are not too hard for beginners assuming of course that you’re willing to put in just that bit of practice. Nothing on guitar is so easy that you can get away with doing no practice at all.
So referring back to Hey Jude, it’s obviously a classic song and one that millions of guitar students will continue to learn in the future for as long as people learn guitar I guess. It’s all over now as they say, the song is just too famous to ever be forgotten and in classic Paul McCartney style the melody is infectious and so simple when you break it down. Sometimes I think that The Beatles could do more with 3 chords than most of us could do with 10. That was a part of their pop genius.
The track goes all the way back to 1968 I believe and was a huge hit topping the charts both sides of the Atlantic for over 9 weeks if my sense of trivia doesn’t abandon me!
I recommend that you learn this one in an easier key first or use a capo to remove the troublesome barre chords. If you’re more advanced then by all means have a go at playing along to the original track. I’ve inserted a YouTube video below to get you going.
