Adele/Bob Dylan – Make You Feel My Love (Tab)

Make You Feel My Love (Tab)

Rounding off Valentine’s week with one of the few lovey-dovey songs I actually like. Make You Feel My Love first cropped up on Bob Dylan’s Out of Time (a record that was seen as Dylan’s “I’m nearly dead” album when it came out twenty years ago). But it became much more widely known when Adele covered it on 19. My arrangement leans towards the Adele version. But there’s not a lot to choose between the two anyway.

I’ve kept the arrangement very simple. I’m mostly using thumb and two finger picking. The only exception is when I strum all the strings with my thumb in bars 7, 24 and 26. But it is arranged in such a way that you could play the whole thing with your thumb.

The one part that might be a challenge is the jump down the neck between bars 10 and 11. If you’re having a hard time with that you could try playing that section like this:


Buy the Bob Dylan version

    Another lovely arrangement and actually sounds great on my deeming banjo Uke. Thanks for putting this together!

    Sandy: Thanks so much!

    Jeff: Thanks very much! I wouldn’t have expected this to work so well on banjouke.

    It’s got a 12” pot so it’s a bit of a warmer sound than most. But yeah, the melody comes through equally well and lovely on my regular tenors or the Banjo Uke. Really love your arrangements. My group worked in your Tuolumne to our last gig : )

    I could have written this many times before, but you continue to write such amazing tabs. I love it that they can be challenging, but not impossible. Thanks for everything.. Success on learning a tab feels really great!
