vasquez, you're a moron and no one likes you
+31   October 18 2005, 01:41 pm by Constantine |
vasquez, just because there is no guitar chords IN THE SONG, doesn't mean you can't put them in when you play the song yourself. I used this song for a guitar performace for school, and it works fine without keyboards and using the guitar for the chords in the intro.

this song sounds great played with a guitar, so be quiet vasquez.dunno if you realised but the idea of a guitar tab website is that people can play guitar versions of songs. clever aren't you.

Generally okay, but maybe define your C/e chord? I'm thinking Am sounds better there, but maybe your C/e is different from my C/e.

I'm not good now at playing some advanced strum (fast) and singing at the same time but it sounds cool when played with piano speed. Big thx GM.
BTW Vasquez - now people all around the globe know that you're moron :]
February 26 2007, 11:39 am by blakchi |
ummm other than vasquez being an idiot (which is SOOO right)
does anyone think that where C/e is, it could be played as just C

its a really good tab tho!

Vasquez is obviously a moron, who has no musical taste whatsoever, and does not understand that you can still play guitar over the verse or even use the cords on the piano instead. oh and nice tab.
Vasquez- you have a stupid name and you suck bals. and now everyone around the world knows you and your stupid name.

The F in the verse should be a Fmaj7. Little mistake. Nice tab.
-1   January 13 2008, 01:26 am by armor_for_sleep |
im pretty sure for the C/e, instead of playing it at the fifth fret location it sounds the same as an F chord, but
without playing the low F on string six.

i think that part with C/e should be like
F Em Dm C
+2   July 21 2008, 11:38 pm by willb |
"whisper words of wisdom"

"let it be" should go like this:


and the first chord starts right on "be"

Think of those first two chords as a D chord barred up on the 3rd fret. If you think about it happens to be in the key of f. you could also theoretically play the chord without the high e string for the third one and then go straight to a c, but i think thats more difficult.

In any case, I don't know where you get this D minor business- it sounds pretty major to me.
-2   July 21 2008, 11:51 pm by willb |
as a side note, no there isn't a guitar playing this part- it is a piano, which is why it's so difficult to tab that part I just corrected. But I assume based on the fact that this is one of the 100 most popular tabs on this site, I'm not the only one who wants to be able to play the melody of this song on my guitar, whether it was written for it or not.

6 years later and jhonen vasquez YOU'RE STILL A MORON NO ONE LIKES YOU true there is no guitar that doesnt mean you cant play a guitar to it. when you're sitting around with a group of people in a sing-along atmosphere a piano not practical especially if like me you never sat down and learned for the tab aside from the G C mix up in the second line of the chorus it seems pretty much dead on good job man
April 5 2009, 12:36 pm by Xubnormal |
Dudetotaly: Perhaps you could share with us the proper chord for the song, in that case?

Everybody else: Em sounds nicer than C/e on the acoustic. But that's just me.

This chord thingy has been very helpful, and this song has an awesome solo.
July 13 2009, 05:55 pm by carter12s |
Vasquez I love to hate you. 2009
Try this for the F C/e Dm C stretch.

its a cool little chord change that pops the vocals into the Dorian mode for a measure adding some sweet harmonics and good release of tension when the progression resolves to root C.

March 3 2010, 01:03 pm by Gnicireland |
The only C/E I know is you play the 6th string open so the bass note is E (open Low E String) instead of C so it makes very little diference in the sound so a normal C would be fine. I hope that helps anyone who's lost its as clear as mud I know Haha

Just some minor adjustments and its golden.. I love to play this song on guitar. I can't sing it that well X.X but my girl can ;) it makes a real good duo.

June 25 2010, 04:02 am by NHECOS |
Vasquez... you're a moron.

Nevertheless... the C/E still needs explaining... in my point of view this is a xx3210.

I'm not sure if the 1st string is played though.

Oh well...
June 29 2010, 04:51 pm by aplefka |
I don't know if anyone else has tried it, but I've played it as F Em Dm C and it sounds okay.

I think the Dm should be Dm7. Apart from that, sounds good :) except for the switched chords in the chorus but someone pointed that out already.
February 11 2011, 02:54 pm by PMcCJLGHRS |
It's all right exept the part with C/E Dm C, but that is more like a little fill and I don't think you can write it with chords.

It goes like this.

E -1---0-
B -1---1-
G -2-0-0-
D -3-2-2-
A -----3-
E -------

Kind of...

And then in the end you go

This fill(or whatever you call it)
and then
1st on the A-string and then open on the A-string
Have a look at this if what I've written is hard to understand…

@jhonen vasquez

Everyone knows that Let It Be is not originally played on the guitar. These are just chords that go good with the melody of the song, and could have probably been fit into the original recording and sounded good.

So my friend, are a moron. Light your guitar on fire, and watch it burn. It will probably be the best thing your guitar has felt since you've first touched it.
April 25 2011, 10:45 am by Fiery Guitar |
Oh yeah..and you're probably just mad because you don't know how to read chords. Dumb ass.
June 2 2011, 06:37 am by amyjoyce96 |
this is really good but in the chorus after it "Am,G,F,C" it should be C then G not G then C it just sounds better x

Title: LET IT BE (Beatles)

C G Am F
When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me
C G F C/E Dm C
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be

And in my hour of darkness, She is standing right in front of me

Speaking words of wisdom, Let it be

Am G F C
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
C G F C/E Dm C
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

And when the broken hearted people, Living in the world agree

There will be an answer, let it be

But though they may be parted, There is still a chance that they may see

There will be an answer, let it be

CHORUS: Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
| There will be an answer, let it be
| Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
| Whisper words of wisdom, let it be


Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be

Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

And when the night is cloudy,

There is still a light that shines on me

Shine on till tomorrow, let it be

I wake up to the sound of music, Mother Mary comes to me

Speaking words of wisdom, let it be

January 19 2015, 02:27 pm by Jfregly |
I'm a little late to the Vasquez party, but I noticed a lot of folks asking about the C/E chord. For this song I'd play it as a C chord, but only play the four higher pitch strings, which gives you an E as the base note on the 4th string, while you have a C playing on the other three strings.

There's a walk-down at the end of each verse (F E D C):


You get the effect of the walk down by playing the chords F - C/E - G7/D - C, which have the walk-down notes as their base notes.

The G7/D chord is played by fretting the high E string on the 1st fret, and playing the next 3 strings open. That gives you the open D string as your base note.

Yes, it's incomplete. This is a very old tab that was uploaded before there were strict guiding lines as to tab format etc. If you want a complete tab, why don't you check out version 7?

It's good that folk take the time to tab songs on here, but why not finish it off.

Lack of accuracy. I hate that this is still on Top 100 tabs when the other is clearly superior. The Top 100 Tabs page should at the very least show the star rating of these tabs. Omitting less than perfect tabs altogether would be best but this site clearly wants the extra hits or else they would have fixed this already. Frustrating.

didn't like this contribution
November 17 2015, 10:17 pm by vichere |
I looked at several versions especially higher rated. This is correct more so than any higher rated version and here's why:

- As he shows, the verse F-chord should be an FMaj7 and turn to an F6. It's how you play it on the piano. Higher rated charts ignore those color chords or give the incorrect chords (e.g. F to a G).
- The turnaround at the end of the standard chorus is F C/E Dm C as he shows that C/E is important and he has it right. Note, the Dm should be a Dm7, but a Dm works.
- As I opened the chart, he must have fixed what a lot of folks were gripping about (the C G was reversed)
- He provided the big walk down scale at the end of his chart, again with the correct chord inversions/colors.

I play piano, I guess higher ranked charts may be easier to play on the guitar so they get more votes.

All I can say is Glen Macon put the song on a silver platter, learn the verse and chorus pattern as he shows, it's how it's played.
