Get back guitar chords

The song’s melody grew out of some unstructured jamming on 7 January 1969 during rehearsal sessions on the sound stage at Twickenham Studios. Over the next few minutes, McCartney introduced some of the lyrics, reworking “Get back to the place you should be” from fellow Beatle George Harrison’s “Sour Milk Sea” into “Get back to where you once belonged”. McCartney had played bass on Jackie Lomax’s recording of “Sour Milk Sea” a few months earlier. On 9 January McCartney brought a more developed version of “Get Back” to the group, with the “Sweet Loretta” verse close to its finished version. For the press release to promote the “Get Back” single, McCartney wrote, “We were sitting in the studio and we made it up out of thin airĀ . . . we started to write words there and thenĀ . . . when we finished it, we recorded it at Apple Studios and made it into a song to roller-coast by. ”
