Minnesota’s own Robert Zimmerman (aka Bob Dylan) is visiting the 3 Chord Club today. We’ll learn three songs from Bob’s vast catalog by ear.
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! Since you know the song has only one to threechords, 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. Remember, in a lot of folk music, the V Major is used in place of the V7 chord.
