Tabbed by: maguri

Tuning: Standard

10cc
I'm not in love (1975)
(Stewart/Gouldman)

A chord diagramA augmentedA great song, but it is quite difficult to find out what is going on in
all of these layers of sound. In order to create a tab for one guitar, one
has to make decisions: including some of the notes while neglecting others for
reasons of playability and overall sound.

The A chord diagramG+G and A chord diagramG minorGm in the verses, for example, might well be A chord diagramG6G6 and A chord diagramGm6Gm6 respectively.
But I decided against including these options because in a single-guitar version
they tend to over-emphasize the change here while obscuring the continuity from
one A chord diagramG+G chord (A chord diagramG+G major) to another (A chord diagramG+G minor), which, to my ears, is more important
here. Anyway, I included voicings for A chord diagramG6G6 and A chord diagramGm6Gm6 in the chords section that sound
good, Include them if you like and create a version that suits you!

So, here is my reading of this classic. Suggestions and comments are very
welcome!

capo: 2nd fret
