3 Chord Club: Sea Shanties

Posted on: August 21st, 2015 by dville

We take to sea today at the 3 Chord Club to learn three Sea Shanties (in the key of sea) by ear. Today’s meeting could actually be called the 2 Chord Club as each of these traditional saltwater classics consist of only two chords.

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 threechords, 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.

Cape Cod Girls
(Hint: I-V-I))

Blow The Man Down
(Hint: I-V-I)

The Drunken Sailor
(Hint: i-bVII)
