3 Chord Club: Dion

Posted on: September 19th, 2014 by dville

Today at the 3 Chord Club we learn three classic songs by Dion Francis DiMucci by ear. You’ll hear that the blues were a major influence in Dion’s music.

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 (except for the occasional Bonus Chord)! 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.

The Wanderer
(Hint: Blues + Bonus Chords VI7 & II7 in Bridge)

Ruby Baby
(Hint: Blues)

Runaround Sue
(Hint: Bonus Chord I-vi-IV-V-I)

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