The rest of the song builds off these ideas.  Once you can play 
the above, you'll be able to feel the small changes from verse 
to verse, lead to lead.

Get Back - The Beatles 
====================== 
 
The intro ,goes with an E5 played in eights, and then we have: 
 
e-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

G---------2---2---|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------| 
D-2-2-2-2-0---2---|-----------------|-----------------|-2-2-4-4-2-2-4-4-|

                    Here we start singing.........

E-0-0-0-0---------| 
          ^ these are only done the 2nd verse I think.. (listen to the record..) 
 
All this goes twice, and then we have: 
 
Chorus: 
e-----------------|--same again--|-----------------|-----------------| 
B-----2-3---------|--------------|-----------------|---------3-------| 
G---4-------------|--------------|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|---------2---2---|

E-----------------|--------------|-----------------|-0-0-0-0---------| 
This is the riff for the lead guitar.. If you play it by yourself you'd better 
stick to E5 or perhaps an E7-chord for the two first measures.. 
 
This is also repeated twice.. And VOILA.. Get Back.. I'm not sure about the 
end though, but then again I don't think the Beatles were two sure about that 
either... 

This is a repost.  Thanks to the original poster. 
 
Peace, 
Paul Z
