    I Feel Fine - The Beatles

The song is in the key of G, though you could easily move the
riff up and down the neck to change the key if you wanted to.

The song is built around one guitar riff, which is heard on its
own during the intro. The riff is based on an E-shape bar chord.
The little finger (pinky) is the only finger that needs to move
to get the extra notes.


INTRO:

G-------------------12--11------11------------------10--9------9--
D-------12-12-10----10--10--14--10-------10-10-8----8---8--12--8--
A-------12-12----12---------12-----------10-10---10--------10-----

E---3----------------------3---------------------------


This is obviously just the same riff played at different positions
on the neck. It starts at the 10th fret (D), moves to the 8th fret 
(C) then down to the 3rd fret (G).

Most of the song can be played with just this riff played at the three 
different positions (G - 3rd fret, C - 8th fret, D - 10th fret)

The basic chords are shown below -  you can simply strum the chord
shapes for a simpler approach (G = 320003, C = x32010, D = xx0232)
or play the riff above at the appropriate position for a more 
authentic sound. 


VERSE:
-------

G
Baby's good to me, you know,

G
She's happy as can be, you know,

    D
She said so.


CHORUS:
--------

D                C              G
I'm in love with her and I feel fine.



The only different bit is the middle 8:


MIDDLE 8:
----------

G      Bm        C               D7
I'm so glad that she's my little girl

G        Bm         Am              D7
She's so glad she's telling all the world


Middle 8 chord shapes:

Bm = x24432
D7 = xx0212
Am = x02210

The solo is over the G/C/D riff. The ending repeats the main riff
at the G position and fades out.

Enjoy!
