Peaceful, Easy Feeling by Eagles

This is my first but I think it's pretty accurate, based on my own ear and
observing a couple of videos of Eagles themselves playing it.  Scroll to the
bottom for chord fingerings and other information.


[Intro]    E  Esus4 (x4)

           E          A                  E        A
[Verse 1]  I like the way your sparklin' earrings lay
           E            A       B7  B7/A      
           against your skin so brown
           E             A                     E        A
           and I want to sleep with you in the desert tonight
           E              A          B7
           with a billion stars all around 

                          A              E
[Chorus]  'cause I got a peaceful, easy feelin'
          A                            F#madd4 B7
           and I know you won't let me down
                      E F#madd4 A     Asus2 B7
           'cause I'm a-already standin'
                  E
           on the ground

[Interlude]E  Esus4 (x2)

          E            A          E     A
[Verse 2]  And I found out a long time ago
          E                 A          B7 B7/A
           what a woman can do to your soul
          E        A                  E   A
           Ah, but she can't take you any way
          E                  A           B7
           you don't already know how to go.
 
                       A              E
[Chorus]   And I got a peaceful, easy feelin'
          A                            F#madd4 B7
           and I know you won't let me down
                      E F#madd4 A      Asus2 B7
           'cause I'm a-already standin'
                  E
           on the ground

[Instrumental verse] (verse and chorus progressions)

          E           A             E    A
[Verse 3]  I get this feeling I may know you
          E     A           B7  B7/A
           as a lover and a friend
          E                     A          E           A
           but this voice keeps whispering in my other ear
                    E           A        B7
           tells me I may never see you again

                          A              E
[Chorus]   'cause I got a peaceful, easy feelin'
          A                            F#madd4 B7
           and I know you won't let me down
                      E F#madd4 A        B7
           'cause I'm a-already standin'
               E F#madd4 A        B7
           I'm a-already standin'
                   E F#madd4 A        B7
           yes I'm a-already standin'
                  E    F#madd4  A Asus2  B7
           on the ground

[Outro]    E   F#madd4   A Asus2   B7 (x2)
           
           end on E


Chords Used:

         EADGBe
E        022100
Esus4    022200
A        x02220
Asus2    X02200
F#madd4  x4420x
B7       x21202
B7/A    X01202

The F#madd4 chord in particular was clearly visible in an Eagles video, as 
were the A-Asus2 and B7-B7/A changes.  There are other ways to play F#madd4
but I think this is the easiest, which is probably why Frey chose to use it.

They definitely play this in the key of E, but on the studio recording from 
Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) they aren't tuned to concert standard
(A=440hz), or to anything else that makes sense, like a half-step flat.  I
find that if I set my tuner to A=433hz it comes out just right.  The same is
true of Take It Easy, so my best guess is that whatever they tuned to in
the studio was off a bit.  Play this along with the studio recording and
you'll see what I mean.

This is a modification of another entry I found here, but I can't remember
whose it was.  Constructive criticism is most welcome.  Enjoy!

I use UG a lot and this is the first time I am every posting a comment.

What a great job by the author. The explanations were fantastic. Above and beyond all the way around.

Thanks brother!

about the tuning.... what happened was, and i dont know this for sure, but the tape may have been sped up a tiny bit in production. it could have been intentional or accidental but that kinda stuff happened a lot with analog tape machines.
