3 Chord Club: The Tide Is High

Posted on: February 6th, 2015 by dville

The Tide Is High at the 3 Chord Club as we learn three versions of this timeless three-chord classic. 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.

The Tide Is High-The Paragons (original) 
(Hint: I-IV-V7)

The Tide Is High-Blondie
(Hint: I-IV-V7)

The Tide Is High-Atomic Kitten
(Hint: I-IV-V7)

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