"Feel Like Makin' Love" is a song by English supergroup Bad Company. The power ballad originally appeared on the LP Straight Shooter in April 1975 and was released as a single in August of the same year. It was named the 78th best hard rock song of all time.

Make love, not war!!!
For peace in our troubled world!!!

Hope you enjoy my acoustic version.
Feedback and comments is much appreciated.

I think it's just a little too high for you especially the chorus. Maybe capo and use the A shape for the I chord 1 or a 1/2 step lower.

Do a D shape chord at 14-12-7-2. Nails the intro. Then work out the timing. Bottom 3 strings only.

3 chords, 2 hands and a voice that touches my soul.

Thank you.

I'll second @Si G X 's comment about your voice. I thought there was a vulnerability there that really added to the song, especially in the verses. I wish I could sing like that. Well done.
I’ll “third” it! A vulnerability but also a full, broad, warm voice sound. It seems like a voice that could put all kinds of songs across convincingly. Also, the sound of the acoustic guitar had an appealing ringy drone that I liked a lot. I agree with the suggestion to try a capo and the resulting different chord shapes, not as a critique of what you did here but because with such a wide-open song, and strong vocal character, it might be fun to explore different resonances and timbres you may discover in trying that.

Hi feldkeen,
I will have to try that intro, and will learn and incorporate in my playing. And I did try it, and it works very well, I dig this!!!
Thank you for the tip, and the lesson.

I tend to avoid E and to a lesser degree A shaped I chords on solo acoustic. Particularly in 3 chord songs, and is can sound kinda choppy. At least in A the 1 4 and 5 are all different shapes though

Hi swarfrat,
Thanks for your feedback.
I have never thought about this perspective, and it makes great sense for the acoustic guitar solo.
I will try to pay attention to your thought on these shapes.
Thank you so much!!!
