3 Chord Club: The Kingston Trio

Posted on: June 17th, 2011 by dville
This week at the 3 Chord Club we sing three classic folk songs from The Kingston Trio.  Two of the founding three members of the group, Dave Guard and Bob Shane started out on the ukulele!  So grab your ukes and join in this one-four-five fest!
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 added a new Video Hints section to the 3 Chord Club.  I would suggest trying to determine the original key and the chord progression of the songs before watching the Video Hints.  If you can’t figure out the original key and the chord progression of a song or songs, then watch the hints.  Remember, ear training takes practice.  Don’t get frustrated, have fun!
(Hint: I-IV-I-V-I)

(Hint: 1-IV-I-V7-I)
