Disclaimer: The "I Feel Fine" riff is very difficult to make sound exactly authentic. Although I've tabbed out the basics here, there are subtleties which I haven't or may not have reflected, such as how notes ring, the exact sloppiness with which the riff should be played, etc.

I Feel Fine
(Lennon/McCartney)


The song begins with a single plucked "A" note, sounds like a bass
guitar to me, which builds in feedback until the string is vibrating
hard enough to cause a buzz.

The "I Feel Fine" riff (repeat as needed):
D C

-|--------5-----5--------------------5-----5----------------------------
-|--3--------------------------3----------------------------------------


Verse 1:
G
Baby's good to me you know she's happy as can be
D
You know she said so
C G
I'm in love with her and I feel fine


Verse 2:
G
Baby says she's mine you know she tells me all the time
D
You know she said so
C G
I'm in love with her and I feel fine


Middle:
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


Verse 3:
G
That her baby buys her things you know he buys her diamond rings
D7
You know she said so
C G
I'm in love with her and I feel fine

Then play magic "I Feel Fine" riff as band comes back in.

Then repeat from verse 2 to the end of verse 3, except instead
of the very last line of verse 3, substitute:

D7 C G
She's in love with me and I feel fine

D7 C G
She's in love with me and I feel fine

I'm pretty sure the song is in G - but if I'm wrong then adjust the
tab accordingly moving up or down a fret or two

This is obviously just the same riff moved down to different positions.
This is the main riff of the song.

In fact most of the song is just this riff played at the three different
positions (G,C,D)

The only different bit is :

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

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



The solo is over the G/C/D riff.

Enjoy!
