Fleetwood Mac started out as a British blues band in the 1960s, evolving into pop music mega-stars by the mid to late ’70s. Today at the 3 Chord Club we’ll learn three of their big pop hits by ear.
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! Since you know the song has only 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. As an added bonus try, to figure out what key the original is played in.

Jim — My ears need a bunch of work! These three songs seem to have such subtle changes. I don't think I could ever do it. I'll let you know my progress in a month. I can really see where this can be a real asset when learning songs or jamming with others.Jeff / HU
