3 Chord Club: Hey, Mama!

Posted on: November 23rd, 2012 by dville

Today at the 3 Chord Club we learn three country songs that start with the word Mama.

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.

Mama, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys-Waylon Jennings
(Hint:I-IV-V-I Modulates D to E)

 

Mama, Don’t Allow -Doc Watson 
(Hint: Mama don’t allow hints either!)

Mama Tried -Merle Haggard
(Hint: Bonus Chord! vi minor in chorus)

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