Notes:
1.  ”…Lennon recorded an early demo version of "I'm Losing You" in July 1980. This version, part of which 
appeared on The Lost Lennon Tapes, was played on acoustic guitar with a drum machine, and Lennon overdubbed 
additional guitar and vocal parts. 
Producer Jack Douglas originally suggested that Lennon use Cheap Trick as the backing band to play on the 
song.  A version was recorded on 12 August 1980 with Cheap Trick's guitarist Rick Nielsen and drummer 
Bun E. Carlos backing Lennon.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=im3AUiCGqnk  They also recorded a version of 
Yoko Ono's "I'm Moving On," which is a companion piece to "I'm Losing You.”…”
2.  This version is based on the recently released by video by Revolver Records 
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Revolver-Records-Video/599329840151333, some 35 years after is raw recorded 
footage was taken at the Hit Factory, NYC, NY https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hit_Factory.
3.  ”The Cheap Trick version of "I'm Losing You" was included on the John Lennon Anthology collection 
released in 1998.”  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_Fantasy 
4.  This is how is sounds to my ear.  As none of the versions out there, capture the manic guitar threshing 
that is depicted by John Lennon on his limited edition futuristic Sardonyx guitar 
http://www.guitarplayer.com/gear/1012/john-lennons-weirdest-guitar-the-sardonyx/49784, in the 1980 video.

About the artist behind Im Losing You - Video Chords:

John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE (born John Winston Lennon; 9 October 1940–8 December 1980) was an English rock musician, singer, songwriter, artist, and peace activist who gained worldwide fame as one of the founding members of The Beatles. As a member of the group, Lennon was one of the lead vocalists and co-wrote the majority of the band's songs with bassist Paul McCartney.

In his solo career, Lennon wrote and recorded songs such as "Give Peace a Chance" and "Imagine". Lennon revealed his rebellious nature and wit on television, in films such as A Hard Day's Night, in books such as In His Own Write, and in press conferences and interviews. He was controversial through his work as a peace activist, artist, and author.

Lennon had two sons: Julian Lennon, with his first wife Cynthia Lennon, and Sean Ono Lennon, with his second wife, avant-garde artist Yoko Ono. After a self-imposed retirement from 1976 to 1980, Lennon reemerged with a comeback album, but was murdered one month later in New York City on 8 December 1980. In 2002, respondents to a BBC poll on the 100 Greatest Britons voted Lennon into eighth place. In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Lennon number 38 on its list of "The Immortals: The Fifty Greatest Artists of All Time" and ranked The Beatles at number one.
