How To Play “WAIT” – Guitar Tab + Video Lesson

In this post, we will learn how to play “Wait” as popularized by The Beatles.

This song is included in their sixth studio album called Rubber Soul.

Here are a couple of fun facts about the song courtesy of SongFacts.

WAIT – Song Fun Facts

This is one of those songs of the Beatles that is unclear who wrote or composed the song. It’s known today to be credited to Lennon and McCarthy, but in his book Many Years from Now, McCartney credits the song entirely to himself, while another music publication of the time credits it entirely to Lennon.

“Wait” was written specifically for the film Help!. Paul McCartney recalls British child actor Brandon de Wilde being present while he was composing it, comparing him to a “Brat Pack” actor.

It isn’t quite clear why this song was left off the Help! album, except that it’s much more folksy and fits in better with Rubber Soul anyway. Help! ended with “Dizzy Miss Lizzy,” a much more rousing and rockabilly number which gave the album the kind of ending the band felt it needed.
