3 Chord Club: The Kweskin Jug Band

Posted on: September 6th, 2011 by dville
Today at the 3 Chord Club we’ll learn three great tunes from the band that revived America’s interest in jug band music, The Jim Kweskin Jug Band.  Besides Kweskin the band in its heyday featured Fritz Richmond, Mel Lyman, Geoff Muldaur, Maria D’Amato, Bill Keith and Richard Greene.

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.
