3 Chord Club: Disco Lives!

Posted on: September 28th, 2012 by dville

Grab your boogie shoes for today’s 3 Chord Club as we learn three great songs from the Disco Era with KC & The Sunshine Band The Bee Gees and Carl Douglas. 

At the 3 Chord Club 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)! 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. If you can’t figure out the original key of a song or songs refer to the Extra Credit Hints at the bottom of the post.

Boogie Shoes-KC & The Sunshine Band
(Hint: I-IV-I-V7-I)

 

You Should Be Dancing-The Bee Gees 
(Hint: i-iv-i)


Kung Fu Fighting 
(Hint: I-ii-I)

Songs presented are for educational purposes only and used under the fair use doctrine of United States copyright law.
