I’VE JUST SEEN A FACE – Guitar Lesson

One of the few early Beatles tracks to feature no bass guitar. One of their "country-style" efforts … verging on bluegrass. This one really moves along as the pace of the lyric draws you into the song! Here's your I've Just Seen A Face guitar lesson!

First verse:
 G                                                                    Em
I've just seen a face I can't for get the time or place where we just met
She's just the girl for me and I want all the world to see we've met
         D     G
Na na na na na na

Second verse:
Had it been another day I might have looked the other way and
I'd have never been aware but as it is I'll dream of her tonight
Da da da da da da 

   D                C                    G   C           G
Falling yes I am falling and she keeps calling me back again

Third verse:
I have never known the likes of this I've been alone and I have 
Missed things and kept out of sight but as it is I'll dream of her tonight
Da da da da da da

Thanks for the update;  Beatles are so talented and creative;  They one of my favorites if not the favorite;  McCartney is one of my all time favorites;  he's so talented;  I like their "Everyone's trying to be my Baby" and "I Saw Her Standing There."

You bet Tommy … we share a love for Beatles’ music!

Hey, Jackson!  Thanks so much for the "I've Just Seen A Face" lesson.  That intro always just escaped me until your lesson.  Now I've got it and it's a kickin' bluegrass classic!  Thanks again!

Hi Jackson,
I really love the way you teach.  Can you teach us the cords and notes to your theme song. It is really cool. I have never heard it anywhere else. Does it have a name?
