Today at the 3 Chord Club we learn three classic tunes by The Drifters by ear. A lot of The Drifters material was penned by songwriters working in the famous Brill Building in NYC in the early ’60s.
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 has only 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. As an added bonus, try to figure out the key of the recording.
Save The Last Dance For Me
(Hint: Verse I-V-I)
Up On The Roof
(Hint: Bonus Chord (I-vi-IV-V-I)
