3 Chord Club: Tom Petty

Posted on: October 21st, 2011 by dville
Florida-born rocker Tom Petty and his Heartbreaks are today’s guests on the 3 Chord Club.
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.

    This is great. I’m working on Learning To Fly. It’s the practice from Am to the G that I need most. This is just what I need to push on.
