    Your Love Is Forever by George Harrison [DADF#AD]
    Updated Version: 2`25`05

    George Harrison's 'Your Love Is Forever'
    [One for Johnny Be Good in Japan]...

    The altered tuning that Harrison uses on this tune: DADF#AD is a tried and true tuning. One easy way into this altered tuning is to see that the open strings and all bar chords across the same fret produce a major triad. Therefore open would be D, 5th fret: G, 7th fret A, 10th fret C. He uses all of these in this song. So far so good for the first shape he utilizes.

    Now play an E7 shape [as it would appear in standard tuning] at the 2nd fret: 6th string open, 5th string 2nd fret, 4th string open, 3rd string 1st fret, 2nd & 1st strings open. This shape in this tuning produces a sus 2 chord, in this position a Gsus2 [from low to high: DGDGAD]. This G chord in relation to the open strings is a 4th higher than the D chord {DEF#G=1234]. Therefore when you move it up the neck it's relative.

    In this song Harrison uses the shape fingered at the 2nd fret [as mentioned above] and he also
    uses it above a full bar across all strings @ the 5th fret [Csus2], 7th fret [Dsus2] as well as the 10th fret [Fsus2].

    These two shapes plus the harmonics that Harrison is playing across all 6 strings at the 5th, 7th, and 12th frets [at the 0:18, 0:58, & 2:07 second cues in the song] are predominantly the fingerings for this piece.

    Also whenever he returns to the D Major 7 chords we have several options. I suggest locating several roots [D] and play with the natural sounds of the open strings plus the addition of the major 7th: C# which lives 1 fret below any of these roots. To my ear though his fingering seems to be taking place at the 7th fret, moving through the barre and Dsus2 chord.

    So here are the lyrics and chords. With the info above, you should be able to get deeper into the piece.

    This is a beautiful song and very satisfying to play.
