The Beatles Little Black Songbook

Four decades after their break-up, the Beatles’ remain the most critically acclaimed act in the history of popular music. The Beatles had more number one albums on the UK charts, and held down the top spot longer, than any other musical act in the history of popular music.

The Little Black Songbook Of The Beatles includes complete lyrics and chords to over 160 Beatles classics, and not only this; each song has its own chord library where you can view enhanced details and play audio

samples of chords used.

The app features timeless Beatles songs from all their classic albums, A Day In The Life from Sgt. Peppers, You Never Give Me Your Money from Abbey Road, Good Day Sunshine from Revolver, Get Back from Let It Be and Dear Prudence from The White Album and many more from the fab four’s 12 original albums released from 1963 – 1970.

As well as this, the app contains 30 professionally recorded backing tracks to play along to, including Drive My Car, Eight Days A Week, Help!, Nowhere Man, Paperback Writer, Yesterday, Ticket To Ride and I Saw Her Standing There.

Also included are a few instructional video lessons to help you learn songs like And Your Bird Can Sing and Day Tripper, plus the app has a built in tuner so you can play along with the video and backing tracks.

The Little Black Songbook Of The Beatles is a brand new fully licensed app, and is a must-have for any fan of the Fab Four. This is the first officially endorsed Beatles material to be sold on iTunes, and marks perhaps the first breakthrough in the impasse between the two Apple companies which has left The Beatles’ music absent from the iTunes thus far.
