Come Together
Adam Stark from The Kicks teaches a classic song from one of the most influential bands in rock n’ roll history. "Come Together" is a song written by John Lennon and credited to Lennon/McCartney. The song is the opening track on The Beatles' September 1969 album Abbey Road.

John Lennon played rhythm guitar and sang the vocal; Paul McCartney played bass; Ringo Starr played drums; and George Harrison played lead guitar. It was produced by George Martin and recorded at the end of July 1969 at Abbey Road Studios. In the intro, Lennon says "shoot me" which is accompanied by McCartney's heavy bass riff. The famous Beatles' "walrus" from "I Am the Walrus" and "Glass Onion" returns in the line "he got walrus gumboot", followed by "he got Ono sideboard." Bluesman Muddy Waters is also mentioned in the song.

Adam plays a Gibson Custom ES-335 in this lesson.
