The British storm the shores of the 3 Chord Club this week as we look back to the music of the early 1960’s British Invasion. Each Friday we choose three songs from a specific artist, label or genre of music that we’ll learn by ear. All the songs only have three chords or less! You’ll find links to the lyrics but not the chords. That’s where y0ur ears come in. Since you know the song only has 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.
This week we rock-out with The Beatles and the Dave Clark Five, and get somewhat mellow with Donovan. Note that the video examples will be in various different keys. Just listen to the structure of the chord progression and you’ll be able to transpose the song to the key that fits you (C is a good place to start). For extra fun try to determine the original key!
(Hint: Intro starts on V7)
I Like It Like That (lyrics)
(Hint: Only two chords!)
