  • Fouteros:

    too classy for a youtube fight

  • Rogers Bastard:

    What’s with the hostility? For the record, he wasn’t talking about other keys, he was talking about A which is what my question/statement addressed. If we’re gonna start to get into hypotheticals we can start with what possibly went wrong with your life that you feel the need to needlessly lash out at others. Your mouth is uncalled for.

  • Fouteros:

    how about other keys smart-ass?

  • macman8680:

    Some jazz players think of using A7#11 but that means it still has the perfect 5th. I’d never like to hear such harmony as that and instead have it as A7b5. Some jazzers like to get dirty and use bigger names (or they don’t know what they should call it). Great player Robben - I cover many of his songs.

  • ElAngeloMisterioso:

    Robben Ford, besides being a tasteful and creative guitar player, is such a nice and humble person. I always find it really inspirational just to hear him talk. The thing which makes him stand out from so many guitar instructors on YouTube is that his theoretical knowledge seems to have come AFTER he already put all of that into practice, as opposed to a lot of those other guys who just seem to rattle off the stuff they learned from a music theory textbook.

  • golfalot1:

    Mr Ford is letting all the guitar newbies out there know that you need a lot more than open major, open minor, CAGED, and barre chords. Get a poster board chord chart on Amazon and go to work. Put a scale chart next to it and look for relationships therein. It’ll all make sense overnight one day if you work at it.

    Yikes. Those look like .12 or .13 gauge strings on that LP. Ouch!

  • Rogers Bastard:

    Why not just strike the root note with an open A instead of fretting it with the thumb? That way you CAN strum the chord.

  • spanky stone:

    i would LOVE to chill with this guy over a joint and a coupla hot guitars…hell yea!

  • picker55:

    I would call it a #5, The meaning of A7#5b9 or A7#5#9 is pretty clear. That, and the sound is augmented (raised 5th). In any case, great stuff from Robben.

  • Glenn Michael Thompson:

    Ab13plus 9 suggests that the A is flat. It would more likely be called A9b13 or A9#5. Or maybe A(b13, 9) would work…. But there hasn’t been a univerally standardized way of naming these chords as far as I know. And the Ab13#9 in most chord charts would be A7#5#9. E raised 9 would be E7#9 (hendrix chord)etc.

  • Fredrik Mikkelsen:

    Or A7#5 ;-)

  • Guille Valdez:

    Flea’s dad

  • Heberto Prieto:

    thank you,thank you, thank you, that was awesome

  • Levi Rodrigues:


  • wes K:

    man this guy is so charismatic..

  • cristian81267:

    emozionante, grandissimo, sono andato a vederlo a milano ed e’ stato grandioso, quante emozioni!!!!

  • superagnitio:

    Aw man, I just love this guy. Been listening to his teachings and music a LOT. Just amazing taste, phrasing, tone and dynamics. Great lessons in his music, pay attention guys!

  • synesthesia67:

    my brain hurts…why can’t they all be power chords??…lol…great lesson…

  • Lane arndt:

    at 6:14 the literal and only name for that chord in that functionality is A9b13. calling a chord a 9 chord presupposes the presence of the flat 7 (functioning as some kind of Dominant chord in whatever key it’s moving towards) and then the altered 13th is indicated by the flat prefix. If for example, the B was also flat, the chord would then be called A7b9b13. the unaltered extensions are the only ones allowed to stand in for the ’7′! Dig it?

  • Lane arndt:

    on the money! Ab13 is Ab C Eb Gb Bb (Db) and F. Whereas A7b13 is A C# E G B (d) and F#.

  • vmcelvis:

    Always useful insightful applioed science information–thanks for opening your book of insight

  • taikoking1:

    Just do it. I wish it was that easy….

  • sigberg1:

    and, forgot to say: Take a good look how Johann Sebastian Bach woluld resolve. It takes time. Hope you can read sheets … keep the good thing going.

  • sigberg1:

    simply it is the d- mewlodic minor scale. Get an interest, how baroque players would have handled before you ignore at least three hundred years of evolving.
    stay cool.

  • giuseppe mantione:

    Grazie Roben sei un grande !!!

  • WIKTHOR64:

    Hey Bobby, thanks… Bobby Crispy RULES oh yeahhh..!!!!

  • Ceri Goode:

    what pisses me off is all the self styled “critics” having a go at this man.  Why dont you fuck off and do your own videos. dont hide behind comment, lets see you do it !
    oh.. and if you know it all anyway, then why are you looking for lessons ?. fucking bullys…. piss off. KEEP ON POSTING BOBBY. ,YOUR GREAT.

  • Christopher Z:

    Pretty Good

  • Robert Davis:

    It has been quite controversial and the subject of much debate. Google this (below) and watch the yt video for the accurate chord. [I didn't stop playing guitar, just stopped the tutorial video -- a year ago, lol.]

    “Giles Martin shows to Randy Bachman the first chord of A Hard Day’s Night.”

  • Persnickity Sam:

    BS. It’s perfect. Open up another window/tab with the song by the Beatles and stop the vid during the middle of the opening chord and then play this one. Same exact chord, even in tune with the song. I’m glad you quit playing guitar.

  • leonelp51:

    thanks for the lesson – and if you dont like this, stop hating nad make your own vid / version of the song, i usually get many views on different tutorials so i can get the best of each one !

  • njaratiana Rafanomezantsoa:

    tro cool

  • KingJulienDavid:

    the endless ‘hard days night beginning chord’-discussion…
    the way I play it is much like bobby’s only I don’t play a g-note on the low e-string. I bet it has a name but don’t have a clue what it’s called:


    listen to the record carefully and hum along with the lowest note you can hear, it’s a D

  • myfingershavetheflu:

    Get A Life The Lot Of You. Go Bobby go I hate guitarists when they crap on.

  • mike campos:

    that’s not how you play the ending…try to learn it the right way before teaching others please…drives me crazy

  • Elliot JS:

    duuuuudeee i was trying to learn amd nice job but your voice sounds toooo much like ted mosby for me to learn!

  • l2string:

    @BobbyCrispy, if you type in ‘A Hard Day’s Night” and scroll down about ten post you’ll see one thats live in Paris from 1965. Watch what John is playing. It’s plain to see. Pictures don’t lie !! What you play sounds GOOD and I play that chord too, but John doesn’t. Gotta go with what ‘The Man’ plays!

  • HaVids8:

    shit shit shit

  • Oryn33321:

    the only thing that is wrong is Guitardudes grammar/ spelling

  • 888BARMPOT:

    ur thumb is in the wrong place

  • TheMattharrington123:

    i dont know how this is wrong i thought you did a great video

  • Will Barker:

    let me see you bust out the old 12 string and play it then

  • Will Barker:

    Lol you need a 12 string to play it right

  • MadSpectro7:

    In non-easy mode solo you play the C>D>F triplet 4 times. And the opening chord is a combination of a basic F9 and some bass note that makes it sound the way it is. You also play the F9 on the ending riff.

  • wheatonna:

    Hi. Yeah the opening chord is not exactly right but whatever, it sounds pretty close and lots of people do it that way. The original version has 2 guitars + bass + piano + a little ride cymbal too, so whatya gonna do? What’s dumb here is that the tablature that appears (335353) is NOT what the video hand is playing (353533). Your beginners are going to be real confused.

  • MrLennon231 .:

    sorry but the opening chord is played wrong. Great lesson besides that

  • TheVGG:

    Interesting. I playt the solo differently.
