3 Chord Club: Sings America

Posted on: July 2nd, 2010 by dville

Today at the 3 Chord Club we salute America by singing three uniquely American songs.

At the 3 Chord Club we choose three songs from a specific artist, label, genre of music or special occasion that we’ll learn by ear. All the songs will contain three chords or less! Since you know the song only has one to three chords, try to figure out the changes, or chord progression by ear. 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. For bonus ear training, try to figure out the original key!

Yankee Doodle-Traditional
(Hint: Goes to IV in chorus)

God Bless America-Kate Smith
(Hint: Quick IV-I-V-I end)

 

This Land Is Your Land-Woody Guthrie
(Hint: I-IV-I-V-I)

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