Penny Lane

Always looking for fun, upbeat songs for my hospital volunteer work. The Beatles’ Penny Lane qualifies as upbeat, if a little quirky and tricky in parts. The lead sheets below will play along with this YouTube video if you put a capo on fret 2. Hope they help.

I had fun putting this together. The typed in chords will fit well with David Mason’s weird Bb piccolo trumpet bridge. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto (who knew?) was McCartney’s inspiration for adding the tiny trumpet, which, for me, just consolidates the Beatles’ (and producer, George Martin’s) outstanding, if occasionally “sloppy,” pure inventive genius!

Have a blast! Let me know if this helped you…
