Speaking in a recent interview with Ovidiu Cernăuțeanu, one of the most iconic music stars of all time, The Beatles’ Paul McCartney, has made a special statement about his musical direction and revealed his favorite musical chord.
In the interview, Ovi asked a question to learn out if he had a favorite chord and Paul answered:
“A favourite chord… That’s a hard question! But I would say E is a pretty big favourite. It’s one of the early chords you learn. And in the early days, we used to play the Buddy Holly songs that we listened to a lot.
He used E and A a lot, so we used E and A lot too. It’s a very pure basic chord and on the guitar it rings out beautifully because the bottom string is open. So it has a resonance that some other chords don’t have.
But they’re all good. I love them all basically, it’s hard to pick a favourite! But if I have to pick, I’ll go for E.”
