Beautiful and timeless song :musical_note: :peace_symbol: :blue_heart:

Thank you for another great tutorial! Playing this tune surely brings a lot of happiness.

And I had to smile at 5:20 … “Imagine there’s no F-chord” :grin:

Thank you for your thoughtful community email this morning. With so much strife and sorrow brewing around the world, you have given me an uplifting way to celebrate the day by learning “Imagine.” I imagine there is nary a student among us who doesn’t know these lyrics by heart.

Justin, not sure whether you’ve had vocal lessons, but your voice in the demo at the start sounds full and rich. Excellent rendition and lesson.

TAB for newly released song lessons usually follows along after a while. It will arrive. It is available on the old lesson.

Really like the changes you made in this updated lesson.
Someday I hope to play this amazing song all the way through without my voice cracking or tears welling up. If only…

I’ve always love this song. I play it on my piano with the embellishments that you mention. Now I’ll do it on guitar, did not think about playing it on my guitar because I don’t have an acoustic guitar,BUT… I do have a BOSS ME-80 where I can make my Strat sound like an acoustic guitar.
Thanks Justin!!!
have a Happy New Years

This just came up on my Spotify feed. Mark Knopfler and Chet Atkins playing Imagine. Worth a listen to hear what is possible (but maybe not in this life time for me). The level of control and feeling between the two is sublime.

A question about the new tab for the 2023 update:
There are vertical lines above and below some chord tabs.

What do these vertical lines mean?

Those represent quarter notes. You’ll see that they are joined together for eight notes.

Thanks, Jeff. So, there is no relevance to whether the lines are on top or bottom of the chord?
I just noticed that Ultimate Guitar is switching to this style of notation. Once I saw the 8th and 16th notes it was more obvious. It does provide for better clues as to rhythm, but it sure adds to the congestion on the page.

It doesn’t make a difference. I’m not sure why some chords have them on top and others on bottom, it’s usually one or the other for the entire tab.
