The rest of the song builds off these ideas. Once you can play

the above, you'll be able to feel the small changes from verse

to verse, lead to lead.

Get Back - The Beatles

======================

 

The intro ,goes with an E5 played in eights, and then we have:

 

e-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

B---------3-------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

G---------2---2---|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

D-2-2-2-2-0---2---|-----------------|-----------------|-2-2-4-4-2-2-4-4-|

A-2-2-2-2-----0---|-2-2-4-4-2-2-4-4-|-2-2-4-4-2-2-4-4-|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|

E-0-0-0-0---------|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-----------------|

Here we start singning.........

 

e-----------------|

B---------3-------|

G---------2---2---|

D---------0---2---|

A-2-2-4-4-----0---|

E-0-0-0-0---------|

^ these are only done the 2nd verse I think.. (listen to the record..)

 

All this goes twice, and then we have:

 

Chorus:

e-----------------|--same again--|-----------------|-----------------|

B-----2-3---------|--------------|-----------------|---------3-------|

G---4-------------|--------------|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|---------2---2---|

D-2---------------|--------------|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|-2-2-2-2-0---2---|

A-----------------|--------------|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-2-2-2-2-----0---|

E-----------------|--------------|-----------------|-0-0-0-0---------|

This is the riff for the lead guitar.. If you play it by yourself you'd better

stick to E5 or perhaps an E7-chord for the two first measures..

 

This is also repeated twice.. And VOILA.. Get Back.. I'm not sure about the

end though, but then again I don't think the Beatles were two sure about that

either...

 

Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner,

A A

But he knew it couldn't last.

D A G D

1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4

Jojo left his home in Tuscon, Arizona

A A

For some California grass

D A G D

 

Get back, get back

A A

Back to where you once belonged

D A G D

Get back, get back

A A

Back to where you once belonged - Get back Jo!

D A

 

[Electric Piano solo - same chords as verse]

 

[Chorus]

 

Sweet Loretta Martin thought she was a woman,

But she was another man.

All the girls around her said she's got it comin',

But she gets it while she can.

 

[Chorus]

 

 

This is a repost. Thanks to the original poster.

 

Peace,
