Form of the Song

"Paperback Writer" is the single from
The Beatles from their singles compilation, titled Beatles Again. The song was written by Paul McCartney in 1966 and was released as a brief number one single with "Rain" as its B-side. "Paperback Writer" focuses on more bass and vocal back-up than most previous Beatles songs. The song also was mastered differently than many previous Beatles song, making it seem louder and better quality than on other records.

The song is a very simple guitar rhythm with only two guitar chords. This is a great exercise for a new guitarist who loves Beatles music and wants to eventually learn their songs. The song helps learn simple transitions between two chords, the G and C chords, that are very common chords to be used when playing the guitar. Learning the finger positions and getting used to going back and forth from these chords is a great way to get better.

"Paperback Writer" uses the following song form:

* Intro (guitar riff)
* Verse 1
* Verse 2
* Refrain
* Verse 3
* Verse 4
* Refrain
* Outro ("Paperback writer..." repeat to fade)
