Everly Brothers 
Love Her (1963)
(Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil)

A very beautiful song; not well known, though. Strings, bass, acoustic and 
electric guitars blend, 
creating multi-layered chords that are hard to reproduce with just one guitar. The voicings 
suggested below attempt to recreate the main lines.

[Capo 3rd fret]

Every time that she needs you be there
