Marvin Gaye - Let's get it on      (+ Jack Black, Wendy Colonna)

It seems much easier to transpose down a half step than trying to play Eb Cm7 Ab Bb7 
the other tab uses. I made some adjustments to those chords. You can use these chord forms 
get a nice increase in pitch through the four chords.

     EADGBe
D    XX0232
F#m  244222 (works better than Bm7, Cm7 in version 1)
G    355433 (bridge uses G7  353433, and E 022100 or E7)
A    577655

     That gets a nice bass line in the 4th string (0,4,5,7) -- don't know if that's a 
reason for dropping the 7ths (F#7 & A7) used in the other version and the Wendy Colonna 
that follows.  --Arthur Marks

[Verse]

D         F#m    G       A
I've been really tryin , baby
D         F#m    G       A
Tryin to hold back this feeling for so long
D         F#m    G       A
And if you feel, like I feel baby, then
D         F#m    G       A
Come on, oh come on,


[Chorus]

                   D  F#m G  A
   Let's get it on
                     D  F#m G  A
   Let's get it on
                     D  F#m G  A
   Let's get it on
                      D  F#m G  A
   Let's get it on


[Verse]

D         F#m    G       A
We're all sensitive people
D         F#m    G       A
With so much to give, understand me sugar
D         F#m    G       A
Since we got to be here
D         F#m    G       A
Lets say, I love you

D         F#m  G       A
There's nothin wrong with me
Lovin you---
And givin yourself to me can never be wrong
If the love is true


[Bridge]

G7                                                   D  F#m  
 A
Don't you know how sweet and wonderful, life can be
I'm askin you baby, to get it on with me
I aint gonna worry, I aint gonna push
G7                                    E
So come on, come on, come on, come on baby
                                A(not barred)
Stop beatin round the bush....


[Chorus]

                   D  F#m G  A
   Let's get it on
                   D  F#m G  A

   Let's get it on

repeat and fade




Wendy Colonna    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFK_jSwKp-E

A different acoustic take. She hits top note twice and then strums once for each chord 
the 6th string on the G, the 5th on the E7 and C, and the 4th on the D7). The timing with 
singing is very tricky for me. --Arthur Marks

Editorial oversite: In the Wendy Colonna version the second C7 in the bridge lines is a C.

Bridge:
C7 G E7 C D7
Don't you know how sweet and wonderful, life can be
...

and there shouldn't have been a G chord on the last verse line before the chorus:

E7 C D7
Come on, oh come on,
