Let It Be Guitar Chord Chart by The Beatles

Welcome to my Let It Be guitar chord chart by The Beatles. I absolutely love this song. I mean, I'm biased because I really like The Beatles, but this is a pretty fun song. There are a few different chord progressions in this song, so it's not super simple to memorize, but it's still easy enough.

Each chord in this song shares a measure with another chord, so each chord is 2 beats in length. Suggested strumming patterns below, but as usual doing all down strums works too, so you can do two down strums per chord.

If you do not know barre chords and cannot play the F barre chord, you can always use a Fmaj7 chord which looks almost identical to a C major chord.

Strum:

1 +  2 + 3 +  4 +      
D DU  D D U              

or:

1 2 +a 3 4 +a
D DDU D DDU
