3 Chord Club: One Hit Wonders 1970’s

Posted on: August 5th, 2011 by dville
It’s time for another One Hit Wonders collection here at the 3 Chord Club.  This week we harken back to the funky 1970’s.

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)! 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.  I’ve included the original key information at the bottom of this post so don’t look if you want the challenge.

Mr. Big Stuff-Jean Knight (1971)
(Hint: Bonus Bridge vi minor-II)

Kung Fu Fighting-Carl Douglas (1974)
(Hint: I-ii etc. Quick V7 end of verse)
In The Summertime-Mungo Jerry (1970)
(Hint: Same all the way through)
