3 Chord Club: Sunshine Songs

Posted on: February 8th, 2013 by dville

Todahy at the 3 Chord Club we get some much-needed sunshine in the form of three 3 chord songs featuring our one and only sun.

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)! 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.

Walking On Sunshine-Katrina & The Waves
(Hint: Verse I-IV-V-I)

You Are My Sunshine-Johnny Cash 
(Hint: Verse I-IV-I-2x V7-I)

Sunshine Superman-Donovan 
(Hint: Begins on I#7)

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