Make You Feel My Love Analysis + TAB T

Let’s compare Make You Feel My Love‘s chords by Adele with Dylan‘s original, there isn’t much in it!

The main difference is the key. Adele is in the key of Bb, Bob is in the key of C#.

When it comes to the arrangement, Bob doesn’t repeat the final line, he goes for another instrumental, and he also doesn’t have an intro.

The most difficult aspect of Make You Feel My Love’s chords is the key.

To make it easier to understand, I’ll show you five keys: Adele’s, Dylan’s, everyone’s favourite key, C, my favourite for this tune, D, the key of A, and of course, to make sense of all this, the Roman numerals.

Let’s start with the verse.

Roman numerals

| I | V/3 |
| bVIIx | IV/3 |
| IVm/m3 | I/5 |
| IIx V | I |

Adele

| Bb | F/A |
| Ab | Eb/G |
| Ebm/Gb | Bb/F |
| C7 F11 | Bb |

Dylan

| C# | G#/C |
| B | F#/A# |
| F#m/A | C#/G# |
| D#7 G#11 | C# |

Key of C

| C | G/B |
| Bb | F/A |
| Fm/Ab | C/G |
| D7 G11 | C |

Here’s the TAB for how you could play the verse in C, that’s Bob Dylan’s key if you fit a capo on fret 1.

Make You Feel My Love chords and TAB, key of C, verse.

Notice how I slide up halfway through F/A in order to play an Fm/Ab which would be difficult further down the neck.

All other keys displayed here have different TAB and even rhythms as they’re based on what works best in each key (members get TAB for all keys).

Here are Make You Feel My Love’s chords in D, this is my favourite.

Key of D

| D | A/C# |
| C | G/B |
| Gm/Bb | D/A |
| E7 A11 | D |

Key of A

| A | E/G# |
| G | D/F# |
| Dm/F | A/E |
| B7 E11 | A |

Play the verse in all of these keys and you’ll gain a deeper understanding of what is happening, for example, on line 2, we move the first idea down a tone.

It doesn’t feel like we’ve left the key because we’re repeating the same idea, genius!

Here’s the chorus.

Roman numerals

| IV | I/5 |
| IIIx/3 IV/3 | I |
| IV | I/5 |
| II | V |

Adele

| Eb | Bb/F |
| D/F# Eb/G | Bb |
| Eb | Bb/F |
| Cm7 | F7 |

Dylan

| Em7 | A7 |

Key Of A

Here’s the TAB for how to play Make You Feel My Love’s chorus chords in the key of A, fit a capo on fret 1 to get to Adele’s key (members get TAB for all keys).

Make You Feel My Love chords and TAB, key of A, chorus

I guess this is why somebody invented the capo! To play in Dylan‘s key, think in the key of C, but put the capo on fret 1. For Adele’s key, you’d have to put the capo on fret 10, that’s not going to work!

Instead, to get to Adele‘s original key, think in the key of A, and place a capo on fret 1.

Make You Feel My Love is a modern standard!

Released on my favourite Bob Dylan album, Time Out Of Mind (1997), Make You Feel My Love has become a modern standard.

Over 450 cover versions have been recorded of this last Bob Dylan hit, Adele’s version being the most famous. Unusually, she played bass on the recording.

One version was actually released before Dylan’s, just a month before in August ‘97, by Billy Joel on his Greatest Hits Vol II, as the lead single.

Other artists that have recorded it include Michael Bolton, Pink, Joan Osborne, Neil Diamond, and Garth Brooks.

Thanks to all these cover versions, Make You Feel My Love has entered the charts more times than I could count, worldwide.
