In My Life

Here is our "Unplugged" arrangement of the Beatles' In My Life from their 1965 "Rubber Soul" album. This one is clearly one of John Lennon's best efforts. Our unique "Unplugged" arrangements are created for one acoustic guitar and one voice. The song is played in a moderate 4/4 tempo. The Beatles' recording is in the key of "A" and uses a standard tuned six-string guitar using the following chord progression: Verse = A-E-F#m-A7/G-D-Dm-A and Chorus = F#m-D-G-A-F#m-B-Dm7-A. In my arrangement I add a 8-7-6-5-4 descending diatonic bass line to the opening verse progression. You should compare my arrangement to the Beatles' recording. The chord fingerings I use (in a Standard tuning) are as follows: C = x32010; G/B = x2003x; Am = x0221x; C7/G = 3x23xx; F = 133211; Fm = 133111; Bb = x1333x; and D7/F# = 2x021x. In order to play this arrangement along with the recording, capo your guitar at the ninth fret.
