My Girl Chord Chart
by The Temptations

Welcome to my My Girl chord chart by the Temptations. My mom was a big Motown fan, so I got to listen to looks of great music growing up including this classic.

The intro to My Girl is one of the most recognizable guitar phrases ever written. It was written by Robert White of the Funk Brothers and is a pretty simple little lick to pick up and play even if you are just starting on the guitar.

So let’s take a look at the intro below.
