3 Chord Club: The Stray Cats

Posted on: July 6th, 2012 by dville

Today at the 3 Chord Club we go all feline and learn three rockin’ blues songs from The Stray Cats.

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.

Rock This Town 
(Hint: Chorus I-V7-I-IV-I-V7-I etc.)

Sexy & 17
(Hint: Blues)

Be Bop A Lula  
(Hint: Blues)

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