3 Chord Club: Santana

Posted on: June 24th, 2011 by dville
The 3 Chord Club gets its Latin groove on today by learning three early Santana classics by ear.  There is a lot of room for soloing in these tunes.  How do you think Carlos got so famous?  Listen closely and try to pick out bits of the solos on your ukulele.
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.
(Hint: Bonus Chord V Major: i-v-i-iv-i-V-i)

(Hint: i-iv-i etc.)
(Hint: (Hint: i-iv-i etc. then i-iv-V)

Extra Credit Hints:
Black Magic Woman: D minor
Oye Como Va: A minor
Black Magic Woman: A minor
