3 Chord Club: Tommy James

Posted on: April 22nd, 2011 by dville
This week at the 3 Chord Club we’ll learn 3 classics 60’s tunes from Tommy James & The Shondells.  Tommy credits his grandfather for getting him started in the music business by giving him a Arthur Godfrey ukulele (with the automatic tuner) at age 4.  Tommy reveals this in an interview with Profiles at the :35 mark.

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! 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. 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.New! Video Hints
(Hint-Chorus I-IV-V)
(Hint-entire song I-bVIII-I)

(Hint-the chorus is basically a I-IV-I-V-IV-I progression but with added passing chords one whole tone down I-(bVII)-I-(bVII)-IV-(bIIII)-IV-(bIII) etc.)
