Eleanor Rigby Chord Chart
by The Beatles

Welcome to my Eleanor Rigby chord chart. This is a SUPER SIMPLE guitar song because it only uses two chords. Or, at least the version I've provided here only uses two chords - Em and C. How exciting!

There aren’t too many song out there like this. So they are gems to come by for beginner guitar students.

The rhythm is pretty simple too. You can use either quarter notes or eighth note strumming like the pattern I have below.

Strumming:
1 + 2+ 3+ 4 +
