3 Chord Club: The Great Folk Scare

Posted on: May 2nd, 2014 by dville

Run for your lives! Hide the women and children. It’s the Great Folk Scare here at the 3 Chord Club. Although thought of as a 1960’s phenomenon the roots of the folk scare go back to the late 1940’s and the music of the Almanac Singers.

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 only has 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. For bonus ear training, try to figure out the original key!

Our Folk Scare selections include a classic from The Weavers, featuring former members of the Almanac Singers, The Kingston Trio and the man that changed the face of folk music Bob Dylan.

Goodnight IreneThe Weavers

The M.T.A.-The Kingston Trio

Blowin’ In The WindBob Dylan
(Hint: No, it’s folk music!)

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