3 Chord Club: Jerry Leiber

Posted on: August 26th, 2011 by dville
This week at the 3 Chord Club we celebrate the life of Jerry Leiber, one half of the greatest songwriting team in rock and roll history, Leiber and Stoller.  Jerry Leiber passed away in 2011 in Los Angeles.

Each Friday we choose three songs from a specific artist, label or genre of music that we’ll learn by ear. All the songs will contain three chords or less (with the exception of Bonus Chord songs)! You’ll find links to the lyrics but not the chords. That’s where your ears come in. Since you know the song has only one to three chords, try to figure out the changes, or chord progression by ear while watching the YouTube video. Here’s a hint, most of the time the chords will be the I-IV & V or V7 chords. In the Key of C, that’s C-F-G or G7. Remember, the sound examples may be in various keys. As an added bonus, try to figure out the key of the recording.  I’ve included the original key information at the bottom of this post so don’t look if you want the challenge.
(Hint: 12 Bar Blues)
(Hint: 16 Bar Blues)
(Hint: Bonus Chord vi minor)


Extra Credit Hints:
Hound Dog’: Key of C (Chords Used: C-F-G7)
Ruby Baby: Key of E (Chords Used: E-A-B7)
Stand By Me: Key of A (Chords Used: A-F#m-D-E)
