3 Chord Club: Jose Feliciano
This week at the 3 Chord Club we’ll learn three songs from the fantastic Jose Feliciano.
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.
Oye Como Va (lyrics)
(Hint: Two chords)
Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door (lyrics)
(Hint: Bonus Chord vi minor in verse)

Guantanamera Key G (G-C-D)
