Here's my version of Bonnie Raitt's "I can't make you love me.? 
The Intro is a CHORD-MELODY (which was played on piano in the 
original version).  This is a bit different from many of my other
submissions - Nonetheless it's fairly self explanatory as always.

What a great version of this song - I originally wished the intro was easier, but once I got it, it worked quite well - sounds just like the piano intro. I have never seen a transcription of this song before, & this one is exceptionally good. Keep up the great work - 5-stars ***** Said it before, this guy submits great stuff.

This song is excellent, by Bonnie or Mr. Michael. I think you're transcribed itperfectly.
