About This Song
Norwegian Wood Guitar Sheet Music: “Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)” is a song by the English rock band the Beatles from their 1965 album Rubber Soul. It was written mainly by John Lennon and credited to the Lennon–McCartney songwriting partnership. Influenced by the introspective lyrics of Bob Dylan, the song marked the onset of the development of new music styles emerging in the 1960s like raga rock, psychedelic rock, and is also recognized as a key work in the early evolution of world music. Stevan’s arrangement builds upon the Dylanesque 6/8 rhythm and time signature used by Lennon and incorporates harmonic jazz elements of 6ths, 7th, and 9ths in this energetic concert rendition.
